Microdermabrasion Benefits at Any Age

It is never too early or too late to take care of your skin. Keeping your skin looking youthful and healthy is an ongoing process, and microdermabrasion can be an excellent addition to any skincare routine. You already remove your makeup, cleanse, and moisturize daily, but adding in affordable spa skincare treatments like microdermabrasion can up the ante on your anti-aging routine.

What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a deep exfoliating process that can be done at a spa. The aesthetician sprays tiny crystals onto the skin to remove the outermost layer, or stratum corneum, and vacuums the skin cells away. Over the course of several sessions, the microdermabrasion treatment exfoliates that layer of the skin, which prompts the body to create fresh, new skin.

Microdermabrasion is effective on dark spots, age spots, fine lines, and shallow scars. The procedure produces results that you can see right away, and extended treatment results in skin that looks younger, smoother, and better.


Benefits of Microdermabrasion

For a relatively easy and painless procedure, microdermabrasion has a host of benefits for women of all ages and skin types. Though women with early signs of aging, usually aged 35-50, get the best results, there are still a host of benefits for others.

Preventative Measure

Young women interested in preserving their skin and preventing signs of aging should start microdermabrasion. The deep exfoliation allows for deeper penetration of moisturizers and serums, which allows you to get the most out of your anti-aging products.

Recapture a Youthful Glow

The immediate result of microdermabrasion is glowing and smooth skin. This youthful glow is emphasized with continued treatments, which can help with early signs of aging like dark spots, hyperpigmentation, or other damage caused by sun exposure.

Diminish Lines

Fine lines are one of the first signs of aging, and many women dread them. Microdermabrasion stimulates blood flow to the face, which improves skin elasticity and diminishes fine lines. Other spa treatments like chemical peels or laser treatments also work on fine lines, but microdermabrasion is a more cost effective and easier on the skin.

Works on All Skin Types

Unlike dermabrasion, a procedure done by a dermatologist that more deeply exfoliates, microdermabrasion is safe to use on all skin types. Dermabrasion is only suitable for those with fair complexions, as darker skin types may scar from the dermabrasion machine.

Fast Recovery Time

Microdermabrasion produces real results—soft and glowing skin—in a short time and with little to no recovery. Because of the exfoliation, your skin may be pink for the next 24 hours or so, but otherwise there is no recovery. You can even go on your lunch break to revive your skin, just bring your foundation along to touch up afterward.

Minimized Pores

Large pores can make your skin look uneven and discolored, so shrinking pores is a high priority for women. Microdermabrasion is effective at unclogging pores, and treatment results in smaller pores for smoother skin.
