Microdermabrasion Treatment Elmhurst, IL
Microdermabrasion is an extremely effective no-downtime treatment that will leave your skin glowing. People with skin that has been damaged by the sun, age spots, acne or has a rough texture may benefit from microdermabrasion.
How a Microdermabrasion Treatment Works
The gentle abrasion and suction technique works to remove dead skin cells, unblock clogged pores, and smooths the appearance of facial lines and minor scars. In addition, Microdermabrasion reduces the appearance of blemishes and uneven skin tone. A highly controlled stream of fine crystals plus suction is applied to the surface layer of the skin. Suction massages deeper layers of the skin to stimulate healthy circulation and allow oxygen-rich blood to flow more freely near the skin’s surface to feed and repair unhealthy cells.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that offers no downtime following treatment. As the new layer of skins appears it will be more sensitive and requires more protection from the sun. Use moisturizing creams and sunscreen to keep your skin hydrated and help prevent any possible irritation.
What to Expect from a Microdermabrasion Treatment
During a microdermabrasion treatment, patients may experience a slight warming sensation as the crystals exfoliate the skin. The length and number of treatments solely depends on each individual’s condition. Microdermabrasion will create smoother, softer, and fresher feeling skin with a healthy, youthful glow.
