Microdermabrasion in St. Louis
Many consider skincare to be an important part of any beauty regime. Skincare is important because every day we battle external elements, such as pollution and sun damage, which can make our skin look tired or less than youthful. Other conditions ,such as normal aging or acne, can also affect the skin. Microdermabrasion skin rejuvenation is a popular, non-invasive procedure that improves the skin’s appearance by removing some of the outer top layers of the skin.
Improves the Skin’s Appearance
This procedure is a great option for improving skin tone, acne, and removing the appearance of acne scars. If your skin is looking dry or dull, microdermabrasion will give your skin a renewed, fresh look — especially if this procedure is combined with one of our custom facials. Microdermabrasion can also leave your skin softer to the touch because of the collagen stimulation properties of the procedure.
The Microdermabrasion Procedure
During the microdermabrasion procedure, an applicator is moved over your skin which applies little crystals that are, in essence, polishing the top layer of the skin. The applicator also has a vacuum device that will suction away the dead skin cells. After this, your skin will be treated with moisturizing skincare products.
The procedure takes about 60 minutes—30 minutes for the microdermabrasion, and another 30 minutes or so for the moisturizing treatment. Overall, this is a relaxing and rejuvenating procedure. There is no discomfort or pain associated with this procedure and you can immediately return to your normal routine.
Results can be seen after the first treatment. Microdermabrasion results are cumulative; additional treatments will bring even better results. One microdermabrasion treatment about once every two weeks over a 12-week period will produce the best results. This, of course, depends on the overall condition of your skin.
Depending on your desired results, this procedure can be combined with other procedures such as BOTOX or dermal fillers for even more amazing results. Dermal fillers can plump up wrinkles and/or creases, while BOTOX can also reduce the look of lines and creases.
