What is Microdermabrasion?
“Nature gives you the face you have at twenty, but its up to you to merit the face you have at fifty’’- Coco Chanel
Your skin goes through a lot, from sun exposure and blistering heat, to freezing cold. These external elements can make you look tired and older than you are.
The good news is microdermabrasion is a treatment that can help, but what exactly is it? Microdermabrasion is a gentle, non-invasive skin treatment that exfoliates your skin. It is suitable for all skin types and requires little to no down time.
At Aim Cosmetic & Wellness Centre, we use a diamond tipped wand to gently exfoliate dead skin cells to reveal a softer, glowing, more youthful skin. The high-speed tip will work to remove your skin’s outer layer, but is gentle and does not require any numbing or anaesthetic.
There are many benefits to microdermabrasion treatment, including:
Reducing the appearance of age spots
Helps repair uneven skin tone and/or texture
Brightening your complexion- making your face appear more youthful
Helps to reduce dark spots associated with acne scarring
Though there is little to no downtime after the treatment, you may look slightly pink and feel as though you have a slight sunburn, however these sensations usually fade within 24 hours. The after effect of smooth, youthful skin is immediate although we recommend 6-8 treatments for optimum results.
