Microdermabrasion includes not only the microdermabrasion but also the important and necessary preliminary discussion with a skin analysis and aftercare. For this, it is essential that the beautician has knowledge of dermatological processes in the skin and how to care for it. This is all the more important with microdermabrasion, as it removes the old horny layer and thus the skin’s natural self-protection. Therefore, the pre-and especially the after-treatment and the products used are of great importance.
If there are no contra indicators, microdermabrasion facial in Huntington Beach, CA can be started immediately. Gentle cleansing and an enzyme peel prepare the skin for microdermabrasion. The enzymes in the enzyme peeling gently loosen the “glue” between the dead horny cells.
The microdermabrasion treatment that follows takes about 30 minutes, depending on the treatment goal. A special treatment head is guided over the skin for this purpose. The crystal’s vacuum crystal microdermabrasion is “shot” painlessly onto the skin under a vacuum. This loosens dead skin cells and removes them directly. With microdermabrasion, the strength and intensity of the removal can be controlled and determined very well.
Active ingredient concentrates and soothing masks effectively soothe the skin. Skin-activating active ingredients that are applied after each microdermabrasion can penetrate particularly well and unfold their effect. Better drug absorption can last up to a week after treatment.
To protect and optimally care for the skin after the treatment, appropriate products with UV filters are recommended. Products containing fat, fruit acid and salt should be avoided. Products containing fat in particular would promote keratinization of the skin.
What can be expected after microdermabrasion?
In the first few days after the treatment, cosmetic microdermabrasion can lead to a deterioration in the appearance of the skin. The effect can occur in particular in the treatment of impure skin through to acne, although this is intentional.
Depending on the intensity of treatment, the skin is slightly pink, but without open wounds. Short-term feelings of dryness and tightness of the treated skin are possible reactions to the treatment that has started. This condition returns to normal within a short time.
After the treatment, the skin needs 2-3 days to rebuild its protective acid mantle and thus the natural barrier function and to normalize the condition. After the treatment, the skin is also sensitive to light and must be protected from UV radiation. Heavy sweating (sports, sauna, etc.), swimming pools and exposure to dust should also be avoided.
