No matter how much you look after your skin, it will still be adversely affected by the environment and the ageing process. A course of Microdermabrasion facials can help to repair damage that has occurred over the years, (accelerated by a decline in collagen production during our late 20s/early 30s. The extent of skin damage will vary, so it stands to reason that to repair some of this damage, a course of treatments will be required.
Hyperpigmentation basically means you have patches of darker pigmentation on your skin which can appear as uneven skin tone, dark spots or patches of darker skin. They appear mainly in the parts of your body that are exposed to the elements like your face, arms, hands, neck and décolletage. It can be caused by the sun, ageing, acne and hormone fluctuations. A course of Microdermabrasion facials performed regularly every 7-10 days will work down the epidermal layers to remove pigmentation. A full consultation is required. Pigmentation can be tricky to treat and your therapist will be able to recommend a course of action to get the best results.
Another cause of unhealthy skin is blocked pores. Sweat, oil and toxins in the air can all lead to blocked pores and blackheads.
Lines and wrinkles appear as we get older. Our skin loses its natural elasticity and becomes dry. Collagen production slows down which causes the skin to lose its firmness.
Moisturising regularly and using sunscreen will help to protect your skin. But, there is something else you can do to clear your blocked pores, treat your hyperpigmentation and improve fine lines and wrinkles.
Course of Microdermabrasion facials
Regular sessions of Microdermabrasion work to gently remove the dead skin cells from your face and clear blocked pores. It evens out your skin tone, removes dark spots and improves fine lines and wrinkles.
You’ll see an improvement after the first treatment. If you continue to have 3 to 4 sessions a month, over time your skin will continually look better. During a course of Microdermabrasion facials, your blood circulation will get a boost and so will collagen production. Your skin will be firmer and more hydrated, meaning you look younger and fresher.
If you don’t like needles there’s no need to worry. Microdermabrasion uses a hand held-wand to exfoliate the skin using ultra fine crystals. It’s a painless non-invasive treatment you can have done in less than an hour! A course of MD facials will help you regain that youthful glow to the skin.
