There are so many different solutions to combat the onset of aging that it can make your head spin. That’s why we’ve put together this article series to help you better understand your options when it comes to achieving your health and beauty goals.
Here at Jiva Spa, we strive to be the best solution for microdermabrasion in Toronto because of the treatment’s many benefits. If you’re unfamiliar with it and what it can do for you, you’ve come to the right place. Read on to find out how a microdermabrasion can help you shave years off your look and reveal beautiful, radiant skin.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical method to restore smoother, more youthful looking skin.
The process works in a way similar to sandblasting. Using a tool uniquely developed for this specialized procedure, we’ll shoot tiny crystals at your skin. This removes the outermost layer of your skin, which is made up entirely of dead skin cells.
At the same time as the crystals are shot out, the same device sucks them away along with the dead skin cells, revealing only soft, smooth, radiant skin below. It also stimulates the growth of collagen in your skin, providing an added anti-aging benefit. As we grow older, the collagen in your skin regenerates more slowly, so giving your skin an added incentive to produce this important element is critical.
Not only does this leave you with nicer looking skin, it also has a number of anti-aging benefits as well. Microdermabrasions can work wonders when it comes to reducing the appearance of fine lines, scars, and wrinkles in the skin, since these are often more pronounced in the outer layer of your skin.
It can also help with acne prone skin, clearing out your pores and eliminating blackheads and whiteheads. It’s important to consult with your esthetician first, though – this treatment isn’t effective for everybody. If you’re suffering from acne prone skin, we have a number of treatments available here at Jiva Spa Toronto.
Those who suffer from hyperpigmentation, sun spots, excessively oily skin, and blemishes can also benefit from a microdermabrasion.
Does Microdermabrasion Hurt?
It may sound like it hurts, doesn’t it? Sandblasting your skin???
But don’t worry – it’s nowhere near as bad as it sounds!
Microdermabrasion is a non invasive procedure which is virtually pain free. Some report a slight amount of discomfort during the procedure, and if that’s the case we can reduce the intensity of the treatment for you. However, the vast majority of people who experience microdermabrasion treatment report no pain whatsoever.
Risks Of Microdermabrasion
Once you’ve finished your treatment, you may experience some mild redness or soreness in the first day or two, or slight shedding of skin depending on your skin type. These are natural reactions, and nothing to be concerned with.
It’s a good idea to avoid the sun, tanning beds, or any other excessive heat (hot showers, saunas, etc.) for at least 24 hours after treatment.
Your esthetician will fully discuss the risks and benefits of microdermabrasion with you prior to treatment.
