When skin obsessed beauties want to improve their overall skintone and texture, one of their first steps is a microdermabrasion. It’s been called the “half hour facelift” or “glowing skin miracle worker”.
A microdermabrasion treatment is the mechanical abrasion of the epidermis. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is typically performed by a licensed skincare professional. Providers will use either a crystal tip or a diamond tip that basically serves as a strong exfoliator, kind of like a mini sander for the superficial layer of dead skin layers sitting on the top of our faces. Along with the “sander”, there is a usually a small vacuum device to ensure those exfoliated layers go straight to the filter and off your face or body. Diamond-tip has been hailed as the gold standard since crystal tip devices run the risk of spraying debris back into the skin whereas diamond tip devices simply vacuum the debris immediately away.
When you remove the stratum corneum or the top layer of skin , the body interprets it as an injury. It then replaces the lost skin cells with new, healthy ones! You will notice a change in the clarity, elasticity and texture of your skin. Since it improves cell production, you will also see a reduction in fine lines, clogged pores, sun damage, melasma and acne scarring. Microdermabrasion treatments have become wildly popular, not just on the face but on the body as well. At Bio2 Skin Studio, clients can sign up for a low cost monthly micro membership that will allow a deep cleansing and exfoliation once every month. If that sounds great, just imagine how it feels.
