Microdermabrasion, also known as microderm, is one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments you can receive.
Softens fine lines and wrinkles
Helps to smooth coarsely textured skin
Decreases the appearance of scarring
Decreases pore size
Reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots
Allows professional skin products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.
How does it work?
At Plum Natural Nail & Skin Spa, we utilize the safe, effective diamond microdermabrasion technique. A diamond-tipped wand is used to resurface and exfoliate while gentle suction removed ebris and cleans pores, while helping to stimulate cell turnover and collagen production.
The service is not painful at all. The wand is very lightly run over the skin, with the slight feeling of sandpaper (some have compared it to the rough lick of a cat!). One of the advantages of microdermabrasion is that it has no downtime. You can return to your normal routine and apply cosmetics directly after treatment.
Microderm can be used alone, or combined with Enzymes, Peels or other treatments such as Nano-Needling for increased results. Your esthetician will recommend a course of action, depending on your skin type.
While one microderm treatment will help with exfoliation and provide a smooth, beautiful glow, for the best results treating the appearance of fine lines or hyper-pigmentation, multiple treatments are generally recommended. Your esthetician can recommend the number that is appropriate for your skin type and condition*. A typical protocal is six treatments about 10 to 14 days apart.
Who should not get Microdermabrasion
Do not get microdermabrasion if you have extremely sensitive skin, diabetes, vascular conditions like rosacea, skin inflammation, bacterial infections, lack of tactile sensation, keloid scarring, cuts and abrasions, or have gotten Botox within 72 hours. Other contraindications to microdermabrasion include sunburn, viral infections like herpes simplex, and if you are taking anti-coagulant drugs.
Apply sunscreen and stay out of the sun after your treatment. Along with the dead skin cells, you have removed some of your protection.
