Microdermabrasion & Facial Treatments Southampton
What is microdermabrasion?
The Fresh New Face of Beauty
Microdermabrasion facial is a deeply effective treatment for renewing a fresh, young-looking glow to your skin. Microdermabrasion can best be described as plastic surgery without the plastic… or the surgery! It’s one of the simplest and least disruptive skin treatments and is ideal even for people with sensitive skin.
The microdermabrasion technique works with microcrystals, which are hard enough to disrupt unwanted tired skin cells that cause dull looking skin. But small enough not to do any damage or even cause discomfort or pain. The technique involves propelling the microcrystals across the skin’s surface, removing only the top layer of skin cells. This technology reveals new, living cells leaving a healthy glow. The epidermal layers of the skin are rejuvenated leading to collagen production and plumper skin.
Microdermabrasion is a progressive procedure. After the first session your skin will feel softer and you may see a very subtle improvement. Generally a course of sessions is required to gain visible improvement. Your skin however will improve with additional treatments as increased circulation is noted within the dermis and newer, healthier skin cells are produced.
What is Involved
Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently remove the top layer of the skins cells. A facial is included in this treatment, see below for what is involved for a facial.
This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discolouration, sun damage, and stretch marks.
- Improve age spots and black heads.
- Improve hyper-pigmentation (patches of darkened skin).
- Exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance.
- Lessen the appearance of stretch marks.
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
- Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores.
- Treat acne and the scars left by acne.
Microdermabrasion helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. Collagen is a protein in your skin that’s abundant when you’re a child and makes skin appear taut and smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin.
Microdermabrasion Risks & Safety
Any discomfort experienced as part of microdermabrasion is usually short-lived. This can include redness and swelling, which should subside within a few hours. The pressure used is gradually built up through sessions. In some cases the skin can be flaky and dry for several days.
Additional microdermabrasion risks include:
- Bruising, although very unlikely, can occur from the suction and may last several days.
- Your skin will be more sensitive to sun exposure. Be sure to use sunscreen, especially immediately following a microdermabrasion session. You will leave with a SPF sun block on your face.
Your polished new look should be long-lasting, depending on the severity of your skin damage and the number of treatments that you receive. Many people have two microdermabrasion treatments per month at first and then one per month as part of a maintenance plan.
