The microdermabrasion facial has come into the UK but started in Hollywood. It’s what they like to call an ‘instant facelift’, which is obviously a lot less money and a far more invasive treatment than plastic surgery.
Basically the treatment involves the application of tiny rough grains which help to exfoliate away the surface layer of your skin. The idea is that the back and forth motion they use for this treatment removes the top layer (the stratum comeum). This then makes the skin thinks that an injury has occurred and rushes to replace the lost skin cells with new and healthy ones.
Once the skin heals it brings with it newer skin cells which look and feel smoother and any skin imperfections like sun damage, blemishes and fine lines are removed, leaving you with a fresh, clean, bright and new complexion.
They say that having a microdermabration treatment every four to six weeks will keep your skin looking radiant and bright all year round.
