Microdermabrasion: What You Need To Know
At Aura Day Spa, we offer a Microdermabrasion service and we usually get a few questions on the procedure, so here is the low down.
Microdermabrasion is an incredibly minimally invasive procedure that’s carried out in one hour sessions. It is used to renew overall skin tone and texture.
It can help to improve the appearance of any solar damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring and so much more!
A special applicator with an abrasive surface is used to sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it - but don’t worry it is not painful at all!
Microdermabrasion is a really safe procedure for most skin types and produces strong results that you will be lusting after!
Microdermabrasion can often help with
- fine lines and wrinkles
- dull skin complexion
- acne and acne scars
- stretch marks
- uneven skin tone and texture
- enlarged pores and blackheads
Prep for the Procedure
Microdermabrasion is a totally nonsurgical procedure so there is very little preparation for it.
However, feel free to discuss your skin concerns with any of our team at Aura Day Spa and we can best advise you!
As a precaution, you may be told to avoid sun exposure and waxing for about a week before treatment.
We want to see you fresh faced for this procedure so no makeup necessary!
There is no down time with Microdermabrasion. However, on occasion there can be common side effects of microdermabrasion include mild tenderness, swelling, and redness. These generally disappear a few hours after treatment.
