Even though the word microdermabrasion is pretty mainstream by now not everyone in Minnesota knows what it means. Microdermabrasion usually improves skin texture, the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, freckling, dry spots, and pore size in a gentle way. Some people in Minneapolis and St Paul areas don’t take advantage of these great treatments because they have never had a skin care treatment before and are not sure what it involves. They fear that they will be very red and that it will feel painful during and after. That is not the case.
A Microdermabrasion is a step up from a facial and is a relaxing treatment that gently polishes the skin. After cleansing the skin, I use a diamond tip wand attached to a small vacuum hose. The diamond tip wand loosens up the top most layers of dead skin. The suction of the vacuum takes away the dead skin cells, helps to increase circulation and bring nutrients to the skin. I then put on a mask for 5-10 minutes and do either a hand and arm massage or a neck and shoulder massage followed by a moisturizer for the client’s skin type. The skin will feel very soft and smooth after the treatment and it will have a youthful glow. It is a great treatment to get before an event where you want to look your best. It is recommended that this treatment be done once a month to maintain healthy skin.
