Exfoliate Your Skin
The Microdermabrasion is a facial that will help exfoliate the outermost layers of your skin to help reveal softer, smoother and more vibrant skin, for a serious slough without the ‘fluff’.
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion, also known as microderm, is one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments you can get nowadays. Its benefits are many: microderm softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring, decreases pore size, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots. Microdermabrasion also makes it easier for high-tech skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.
What is a facial?
A facial is one of the best ways to take care of your skin, especially when it’s given by an experienced, knowledgeable esthetician. A facial cleans and exfoliates leaving your skin silky smooth, hydrated and full of the healthy, youthful glow that we all desire. A smooth, relaxing facial guaranteed to have you feeling new and improved.
The Basic Steps of a Facial
- Consultation. A facial should begin with a consultation. The esthetician may have you fill out a form that has questions about your skin concerns, your diet, how much water you drink, drugs and supplements you take, and products you are currently using. This can affect your skin and what kind of treatments she recommends.
- Cleansing. After wrapping your hair with a towel or headband, the esthetician begins a facial with a thorough cleansing, using cotton pads, esthetician wipes or sponges.
- Skin Analysis. The esthetician covers your eyes and looks at your skin through a brightly lit magnifying lamp. He or she is determining your basic skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive or normal) and skin conditions (acne, blackheads, whiteheads, aging, sun-damage, dehydration, etc.) The esthetician then chooses the appropriate products and treatments, and consults with you about what he or she sees and recommends.
- Steam. Most facials use a machine that directs a thin vapor of warm steam to your face. This is relaxing and helps softens up any blackheads and whiteheads to be extracted. If you have very sensitive skin, the esthetician may not use steam.
