At The Sun Lounge, we provide a range of advanced facials. Microdermabrasion is an advanced technique that can benefit nearly everyone. These facials are designed to benefit both young and aging skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as restoring hydration. Acne scars and uneven skin tone can be reduced and the appearance of pores can be minimised. Let’s discover more of the benefits that microdermabrasion offers.
How Microdermabrasion Facials Are Done
These facials are usually carried out using professional equipment. The machines used for microdermabrasion have fine crystals for exfoliating with and a vacuum to suck away the dead skin cells. Although it can be used on the face, it can also be used on other areas of the body to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and minor imperfections.
Typically, the procedure takes between 30 and 60 minutes on the face. Results can be seen instantly, with a brighter complexion after just one session. For the reduction of scars and fine lines, a course of treatments is recommended over a period of weeks.
Who Will Microdermabrasion Work On?
This treatment is ideal for those with minor skin concerns. Sun damage, acne scars, clogged pores and fine lines can all be reduced with microdermabrasion. If your goal is to improve the appearance of your skin, this is a great place to start.
As with many treatments, there are some people who will not be good candidates. If your skin is irritated, you should avoid microdermabrasion, as it can be hard on broken skin. This applies to people with moderate to severe acne, rashes, sunburn, rosacea or cold sores. That’s not to say that you can’t ever get this treatment, but you should work to resolve those concerns first.
Things To Discuss With Your Therapist
Because this treatment can be considered quite intensive, your therapist will probably ask you a few questions about your health and lifestyle first. You’ll need to discuss any medications you’re on, as this can affect how your skin will react. They’ll also inform you of what you should and shouldn’t do in the days leading up to your treatment. This includes avoiding NSAID painkillers, waxing, extensive sun exposure and using exfoliating chemicals or products on the treatment area.
Potential Side Effects
Although microdermabrasion is a very safe treatment, there can be a few side effects. These usually go away quickly. You can expect a little redness or swelling immediately after treatment, but this shouldn’t last for long. Some people may experience bruising or notice small abrasions. This is rare, but if you do have any concerns be sure to discuss them with your beauty therapist. It’s important to stay out of the sun after this treatment, as your skin will be a lot more sensitive to UV rays and more likely to burn.
