Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation treatment that removes dead cells and promotes the production of new collagen. The treatment works by moving a high-speed instrument across the skin that blasts the skin with tiny crystals, then sucks them up.
The treatment is normally performed in a day medical spa by licensed estheticians who have obtained their microdermabrasion certifications through esthetician school or an independent skin care product line.
Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective treatments available today for improving the appearance and texture of the skin. It can be used to treat a variety of different skin problems such as wrinkles, fine lines, scars, sun damage, age spots, pigmentation issues, dry skin, stretch marks, and more.
Microdermabrasion is sometimes called the “lunchtime facelift” because it can make a significant improvement to the skin in a short amount of time. Here are three benefits of microdermabrasion to help you decide if the treatment is right for you:
1. Instant Results – You don’t have to wait days before you see an improvement to your skin. You’ll be able to notice a difference as soon as you walk out of the treatment room! Your skin will appear tighter, smoother, younger, and more radiant.
2. Quick – Another benefit of microdermabrasion is that the procedure is short. A typical facial treatment only takes about 30 minutes.,
3. Harmless – Because microdermabrasion is non-invasive, it is a nearly painless procedure. If you have sensitive skin, you may experience some discomfort but your esthetician should be able to adjust the force of the machine to meet your personal needs. Your skin may also become slightly irritated during the treatment, but these side effects will usually only last a day and your esthetician will give you moisturizer that will help soothe your skin. And the end results will be a radiance you’ll love!
Although you benefit from a single treatment, the best results occur with multiple microdermabrasion sessions. A skilled esthetician will recommend the number of treatments that’s appropriate for your skin type and condition.
Because it’s such a popular, in-demand service, it can be very profitable for estheticians to become certified in microdermabrasion! The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts jobs for licensed estheticians to grow 25% between 2010 and 2020.
