Microdermabrasion Treatments

"before and after results of woman's facial"

Micro/Derm/Abrasion: Microscopically abrade (remove) the top layer of the epidermis to improve the skin’s elasticity, texture and clarity.

There is a great deal of confusion about how microdermabrasion treatments work and what it can do for your skin. What this timeless and most effective treatment does is it physically removed dead skin cells by way of a flow of crystals that loosen and lift the cells, then a vacuum (negative pressure) draws the skin close to the apparatus, and sweeps away the cells and crystals while increasing the circulation of lymph and blood.

Microdermabrasion creates results in two areas of the skin: the epidermis and subcutaneous tissue. The epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin (skin’s top surface). The skin is a living organ that will protect itself. Therefore, whey the skin is exfoliated , it goes into survival mode. The basal layer is where all the cells are produced and start kicking out new cells. These new cells  replace the old cells that have been removed fromt the epidermis.

During this process, collagen and elastin fibroblasts (connective fibers of the skin that support it’s form) both get stimulated, increasing the firmness of the skin.

Subcutaneous tissue lies under the skin, where blood and lymph are present. Lymph and blood flow are increased due to the negative pressure that removes the crystals and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin; these cells are drawn back into the machine. Lymph also draws toxins away from cells, keeping them in optimal health. Oxidation to the skin happens when the negative pressure moves the lymph and draws blood to the skin’s surface, which stimulates circulation to nourish and oxidize the skin.
