THE MOST EFFECTIVE SKIN CARE TREATMENTS:
YOUR GUIDE TO MICRODERMABRASION, DERMAPLANING AND LIGHT CHEMICAL PEEL
If you’re like most people interested in facial skin care, you probably know about the most common skin care treatments offered by salons and spas, including facials, hydrofacials, relaxation massage, deep cleansing and hydrating facial masques. However, more effective skin care treatments performed by skin care experts or medical aestheticians are available.
Medical aestheticians are trained in advanced facial skin care. Medical aestheticians often work hand-in-hand with a facial plastic or cosmetic surgeon. These professionals treat more than just your basic skin care needs. In fact, their treatments are one or two levels beyond the services commonly offered by the standard salon or spa. Some of the most beneficial skin care treatments they offer include microdermabrasion, dermaplaning and light chemical peel.
The best part: these treatments are safe, painless, inexpensive and require no downtime.
Microdermabrasion and Dermaplaning
Microdermabrasion and dermaplaning are exfoliating treatments. Exfoliating the skin simply means removing the outermost, or superficial, layer of skin cells. As new skins cells form, old skin cells are shed from the superficial layer. This natural cycle is gradual and occurs on a microscopic level. During this cycle, the skin accumulates a build-up of dehydrated, dead and flaky material causing the skin to appear dry and dull. It also makes the skin appear unhealthy. Microdermabrasion and dermaplaning remove this build-up of unhealthy material. By removing this build-up, microdermabrasion and dermaplaning reveal the underlying healthy skin which improves skin tone and texture. The skin will appear younger, healthier and more radiant.
Light Chemical Peel
Light chemical peel is another type of exfoliating treatment. However, unlike microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, it exfoliates in a way that provides additional benefits. The activity of the chemicals that make up the peel solution allows for this unique effect. The unique composition of chemical peel treats age spots, brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles in addition to removing dead skin cells. Chemical peel solutions also contain alpha and beta-hydroxy acids which remove debris from within the pores. This gives the pores a smaller appearance. The effect of light chemical peel is often enhanced with the use of serums. Serums contain antioxidants and growth factors that prevent aging and preserve youthful looking skin.
One of the most exciting benefits of microdermabrasion, dermaplaning and light chemical peel is that people will immediately notice your improved appearance but they won’t know you’ve had anything done. Patients undergoing these safe and effective skin care treatments walk away looking younger, more refreshed and energized, and leave with a greater sense of confidence and well-being.
