Exfoliation is an important cornerstone of a good skincare routine. However, are you concerned your at-home skincare routine is not accomplishing enough? Consider microdermabrasion! This gentle but powerful treatment clears excess dead skin cells and treats a variety of imperfections. Discover the possibilities during a consultation with us at Reno Sparks Medspa in Reno, NV!
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment to deeply exfoliate the skin. This skin rejuvenation treatment removes excess dead skin cells from the body to reveal a refreshed complexion. It may be used to minimize the appearance of:
- Age spots
- Enlarged or clogged pores
- Fine lines
- Skin texture
- Skin tone
As this treatment removes dead skin cells, it encourages collagen production. Collagen provides skin with structure and support.
What Types Are Available?
There are two different approaches of microdermabrasion, and they are dependant on the device used.
A crystal device is the classic approach to this exfoliation treatment. This device deploys aluminum oxide crystals to exfoliate the skin, impacting multiple layers of the skin. It gently vacuums skin cells as crystals impact the skin.
A diamond-tipped device is a new and exciting approach to exfoliation. This device allows for precise, controlled treatment on nearly any area of the face. The tip of the device gently treats the skin as the vacuum gently removes skin cells.
A consultation with our team in Nevada can help determine which type may be best for you.
What Could I Expect from the Treatment Process?
Microdermabrasion treatments are performed in the comfort of our Nevada office. During treatment, a handheld device is used to gently exfoliate the skin. In addition to exfoliating the skin, it simultaneously encourages collagen production and removes excess skin cells.
There is little to no discomfort associated with the treatment process, but you may experience a scratching-sensation. There is no set downtime associated with the process. You should be able to return to your normal daily activities, but skin may be sensitive and tender.
Results achieved with microdermabrasion will vary for each person and the specific type of procedure performed. Most people enjoy the results shortly after treatment, and they may last for up to a year. A series of treatments may be recommended to help achieve and maintain the best results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating skincare treatment that may be performed on a variety of skin tones and types. It may be well-suited for most generally healthy adults with realistic goals and expectations for treatment.
A consultation with our team in Reno can help ensure this is the best treatment for you and your goals. They can also help you determine which treatment approach is a better fit for you as well as develop your unique treatment plan.
