Austin Microdermabrasion Treatments
If you’ve noticed your complexion looking a little dull and lackluster lately, there’s probably a good reason why. Maintaining a glowing complexion depends largely on our body’s natural ability to replace dead skin cells. This regenerative process is known as skin cell renewal, and it happens roughly every 28 days.
During skin cell renewal, the skin produces new skin cells which are pushed up from the lowest level of the epidermis to the top layer, shedding the older, damaged skin cells at the surface. Cellular renewal is what keeps dead skin cells from building up at the surface. However, as we age, this process begins to slow down. This leads to a buildup of dead surface cells which are responsible for giving the skin a rough, devitalized appearance.
Microdermabrasion Treatment for Glowing Skin
Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive, exfoliating treatment that restores a glowing complexion by removing the buildup of older surface cells while stimulating the cellular renewal process. At Personique On The Spot in Austin, we have both diamond tipped and crystal microdermabrasion machines. Both microdermabrasion procedures have the capacity to produce the same results, but differ in their techniques.
Crystal Microdermabrasion is an ablative procedure that involves the use of a hand-held device that propels a high-speed flow of crystals that are “blasted” out onto the skin. Simultaneously, the machine’s vacuum system sucks away dirt, dead cells and the used crystals.
Diamond Microdermabrasion on the other hand is an abrasive procedure that employs a diamond tipped wand that is used to “scratch or sand” away the top level of the dermis while the device’s vacuum system sucks away dirt, debris and dead skin cells.
Both treatments aim to buff away the surface layer of dead skin cells to reveal a fresh palette of soft, clear skin beneath. This gentle process also stimulates the production of fresh collagen, giving your skin a smooth, velvety texture afterward. Microdermabrasion is also great for reducing the appearance of age spots, fine lines and hyperpigmentation.
