Benefits of Microdermabrasion – 10 reasons to try it instead of your next facial

Benefits of Microdermabrasion treatmentIf you’re a fan of facials and curious to try something more rejuvenating, Microdermabrasion is the stand-out choice.

While traditional facials are great for moisturising and softening skin, Microdermabrasion is all about deep exfoliation. It’s a facial that means business!

There are several great reasons to try Microdermabrasion next time you fancy giving your skin some TLC. Here’s ten of the best.

Top 10 Benefits of Microdermabrasion

1. Improves the skin’s texture

Microdermabrasion is a great treatment for coarse skin. The deep exfoliating action of the micro-crystals helps remove the rough outer skin to reveal the smooth, fresh skin underneath.

2. Reduces the appearance of scars, including acne scarring

Though you’ll need a course of treatments for the best results, Microdermabrasion can help significantly improve the appearance of scars, including chickenpox and acne scars.

3. Cleans congested skin and minimises enlarged pores

If blackheads, whiteheads or enlarged pores are a problem for you, ongoing Microdermabrasion treatment can be used to regularly unclog pores, leaving your skin cleaner and healthier.

4. Improves fine lines and dry, sun-damaged skin

Regular Microdermabrasion treatments can help make tired, dry and damaged skin look more youthful by stimulating the turnover of skin cells and encouraging collagen production.

5. Brightens dull skin

As our skin cells die, they sit on the skin’s surface until they’re removed, and it’s this build-up that makes skin look dull. Microdermabrasion removes the top layer of dead skin, making way for the fresh, radiant skin underneath.

6. Treats hyper-pigmentation (age spots)

Perhaps one of the lesser-known benefits of Microdermabrasion, a course of treatments can help even out skin tone, minimising the appearance of age spots and other pigmentation problems.

7. Improves absorption and effectiveness of skincare products

Microdermabrasion is a fantastic treatment to have before applying moisturising products. Because the treatment removes the dead skin ‘barrier’ on the surface of the skin, products applied topically are able to penetrate into the skin much more easily and work their magic.

8. Instant improvement

Unlike some non-surgical treatments where results emerge slowly in the days and weeks afterwards, with Microdermabrasion you’ll notice an improvement in your skin right away. Once the initial redness has subsided, you’ll really be able to see and feel the difference.

9. Relaxing and comfortable 

This is hands-down one of the best benefits of Microdermabrasion in our book! The treatment is completely painless, and the action of the crystals on the skin actually feels quite soothing and relaxing. Whoever said no pain means no gain?

10. Suitable for all skin types

And finally, as a minimally invasive treatment that doesn’t introduce any products into the skin, Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types and can be enjoyed by everyone.
