Microdermabrasion Facial Treatments at La Fontaine
For many of us who are recovering from our acne-filled teenage years, we need a solution to the scars and damages left behind from our awkward years. Skin creams and other holistic treatments might do the job temporarily, but what is going to give us that lasting skin-fix? The answer is microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion is a facial treatment for exfoliation and skin rejuvenation. It is a great solution to help fade away pimple scars and very mild acne scars. It’s also very effective for brightening dull complexion, polishing uneven skin tone, lightening age spots, unclogging pores, removing blackheads and/or whiteheads, and improving fine lines and wrinkles.
This deep exfoliating treatment uses fine crystals or minute diamond-studded tips (diamond microdermabrasion) and vacuum suction to gently exfoliate the top layer of skin. The circulatory stimulation across the skin’s surface buffs away old skin cells that make skin dull-looking and stimulates collagen production that boosts the growth of new, healthier-looking skin cells.
In addition to improving the texture and feel of your skin, it is also an excellent procedure to help you get the most out of your regular skincare regimen. As unwanted dead cells and debris are removed and clogged pores are cleaned out, all those expensive skin care products you use will be able to penetrate deeper and work better giving you more value for your dollar.
One thing great about these facials is that there is absolutely no downtime at all. You can return to your normal routine immediately after treatment. Side effects are hardly noticeable. Generally, it may leave the skin slightly red and possibly more sensitive, but this will usually fade within a few hours.
One session is so brief. It will take only about thirty minutes to one hour to complete. You can basically walk in and out of the clinic in your lunch hour.
Another thing that makes the treatment appealing to many patients is the fact that you will not need to go under the knife or even use anesthesia. It’s painless, low-risk and totally non-invasive.
So who is an ideal candidate for a microdermabrasion? Well, there are basically no limitations when it comes to skin tone and texture, even for people with sensitive skin. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the treatment will work very well for people with fine facial lines or wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, uneven pigmentation, clogged pores, skin texture problems, or superficial blemishes and minor scars.
Facials are nice, but microdermabrasion goes a bit deeper into skin. It’s an affordable professional treatment (starting at $79) that can really get your skin looking the best it can be.
