Microdermabrasion, or sometimes referred to in the beauty industry as 'micro' for short, is a very popular skin treatment due to how quickly and simply you can see positive changes to the skin.
It's a great all rounder for skin care as it can quickly improve skin texture and appearance, while also helping with things like visible fine lines, absorption of makeup and moisturisers.
So, what is Microdermabrasion?
It's easiest to think of this treatment as 'advanced exfoliation'. Being a non-invasive and non-surgical skin treatment it can be used on majority of clients, including women and men, as well as younger and older skin.
The procedure sees a therapist use a wand to manually exfoliate the outermost layers of skin to leave your face feeling smooth and fresh.
There are a few different Microdermabrasion treatments available in the industry, but at Miami Kiss we use what's called 'Diamond-Tipped' Microdermabrasion.
The diamond-tipped treatment method means the tip of the treatment device is coated in a diamond-hard substance (usually not actual diamonds!) which is passed over the skin to remove dead skin cells. As the diamond-tip removes dead skin, a small vacuum attached to the device sucks away the exfoliated debris.
How long does the effect of Microdermabrasion last?
As we always say, results may vary from person to person, however typically you should see the benefits of a Microdermabrasion treatment for 3-4 weeks. Age, skin type and how quickly your body turns over new cells are the biggest factors for how long the effects will last.
How often should I get Microdermabrasion treatments?
We normally recommend getting a treatment every 4-6 weeks, but again this depends on age and skin type.
For many clients, desired results are maintained with regular monthly appointments. However, if we are working towards treating other skin issues, we may recommend more regular treatments.
What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion?
The benefits of microdermabrasion can include:
- Improvement to look and texture of skin;
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles;
- Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores;
- Help to treat acne or acne scaring;
- Fresher and younger feeling skin;
