Is your skin still suffering from the effects of winter? The cold can cause blood vessels to constrict, while harsh wind can lead to dry skin, cracked lips and even squinting. All of this can cause our skin to look less vibrant. That’s where microdermabrasion comes in handy.

A Day at the Day Spa

Microdermabrasion is a popular procedure that reduces age spots and enlarged pores. It can be performed here at Skin by Lovely with no anesthesia or chemicals required.

Your aesthetician will thoroughly clean your skin before beginning the microdermabrasion treatment. The 20- to 30-minute procedure will feel like an exfoliation performed with a medical instrument. Microdermabrasion is less severe than dermabrasion and non-invasive, making it popular among med spa newbies.

Microdermabrasion’s Micro-crystals

Tiny crystals will be used to slough off the top layer, allowing the bottom layer of skin to appear more vibrant and less wrinkled. The crystals are removed by a vacuum, which helps stimulate collagen production and increased blood flow.

Microdermabrasion works on all skin types and colors. A little pinkness or redness may appear post-treatment, but usually disappears within 24 hours. Moisturizer can be applied immediately after microdermabrasion, but you should refrain from using makeup for up to 24 hours.

If you want to minimize wrinkles and show off a more even skin tone, talk to your favorite aesthetician at Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica today about microdermabrasion.
