Healthier and younger looking skin with Microdermabrasion

skin peelYou want to look your best and having smooth and glowing skin is certainly something that will turn a few heads. There are creams and lotions to help and a suntan can really give your skin a healthy look too. However, skincare goes deeper than that and something that is worth doing on a regular basis is making an appointment at your local beauty salon, spa or health club to get your dead skin removed to allow the fresh skin to breathe.

Skin rejuvenation
There are different ways to achieve it and it’s certainly important not to overexpose yourself to the sun even if you have suitable sunscreen. If you want your skin to be healthy and young looking, try microdermabrasion which is a non surgical procedure designed to gently remove your dead skin. You can try it yourself with different products but the best results usually come from professionals trained in the process.

It is a painless procedure which doesn’t involve using any needles or anaesthetic. The machine used can be adjusted both in pressure and speed depending on the sensitivity of your skin. If you have an appointment for this treatment you may just need a few minutes or alternatively as much as an hour.

You can return to your normal daily activities after a session and start to use makeup and creams after a short time, perhaps a couple of hours. However, listen to the advice your skincare professional gives you about anything that is likely to cause any irritation following your session.

A traditional crystal microdermabrasion machine has a pump and a vacuum. The pump creates the pressure using inert crystals to abrade the skin and the vacuum takes the dead skin and crystals away. Typically the crystals are sodium bicarbonate, sodium chloride, aluminium or magnesium oxide. The latest types of machines use diamonds which cause fewer problems around the nose and mouth areas.

The easiest way to describe this skincare treatment is – it’s like brushing your teeth – which you do to remove plaque, in this case removing dead skin. Skin regenerates every 30 days or so; it means abrasion needs to be done on a regular basis but it certainly helps keep your skin soft, smooth and young looking.

If your skin is in better condition then it goes without saying you are likely to need less creams and lotions and what you do use can be more effective in getting deeper into your skin. In rare cases, the treatment can cause some bruising, but it is rare. Most people experience no side effects from the treatment.

If after several appointments at a salon, spa or health club for the treatment you fancy trying it yourself at home, look for a microdermabrasion machine for sale from a reputable supplier. Simply make sure you follow all guidelines and instructions given and you can look forward to enjoying healthier and younger looking skin on a regular basis.
