The facial treatment consists of a face massage, cleanse, tone, crystal exfoliant, lift, skin matched mask with cooling and moisturizing.

What Happens Af​ter Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is going to essentially abrade the top layer of your skin, peeling back all of the dead skin cells that naturally collect on the surface layer of our body.

Scraping all of these dead skin cells, as well as plenty of dirt and debris – not to mention a fair share of facial oil – is going to leave your skin naturally rejuvenated and refreshed. You’ll be able to better oxygenate your skin, and younger layers of skin are going to be pushed to the topmost layer. After a microdermabrasion treatment, you’ll see improved elasticity, a more consistent complexion, and an easier opportunity to hydrate your skin at the same time.

What You Should DO After A Microdermabrasion

The most important thing you can do after a microdermabrasion treatment is to keep your skin perfectly hydrated – almost over hydrated – around the clock.

This is especially important in the first seven days following your microdermabrasion, as this is when your new skin layers are going to be at their “thirstiest”. This is when these new skin layers are going to be exposed to environmental factors they wouldn’t have been exposed to previously. Also, this is when your skin is in need of external moisture rather than forcing your body to generate more facial oil that leaves you looking shiny and blotchy.

You’ll want to drink plenty of water after microdermabrasion, but you’re also going to want to use a quality moisturizer that adds a lot of extra hydration to your skin. Not all moisturizers are created equally, however, and you want to get your hands on a moisturizer that offers hydrating elements that are highly bioavailable. The moisturizers recommended above are a good place to start for immediate use after microdermabrasion.

It’s also important that you stay out of the sun for at least the first week (or as much as you are able to) after your microdermabrasion, and that when you do go outside you apply a moisturizer that offers some kind of SPF protection (ideally 30 SPF, if not more depending upon how much sun exposure you anticipate).

A healthy diet rich in cruciferous vegetables, fibre, and fresh fruit will also do wonders to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. A good diet is great for skin before or after microdermabrasion. It’s just good practice if you want flawless skin.

What NOT to Do After A Microdermabrasion

it’s important that you do everything you can to avoid wearing cosmetics – any kinds of cosmetics – for at least the first 24 hrs after your microdermabrasion. Your young skin cannot take the exposure to these chemicals the way that dead skin cells can, and any exposure to these chemicals – even those found in organic cosmetics – could wreak havoc on your complexion and create a world of trouble for you moving forward.

It’s important that you don’t expect absolute magic in the first two or three days after your microdermabrasion procedure, either. Your skin is going to naturally look more youthful and healthier over time after this procedure has been conducted, and it may take you anywhere between seven days and 14 days to see the kinds of results that you are after.

Why Microdermabrasion Became So Popular?

Microdermabrasion really exploded in popularity during the early 1980s, and today it is recognized as one of the most powerful and effective ways to rejuvenate your skin and to slow the inevitable ageing process.

Working as a bit of a modern Fountain of Youth, this procedure gives you an opportunity to completely restore your youthful complexion with a scientific approach to removing and exfoliating the dead skin cells left on the topmost layer of your skin.

There are a couple of different approaches to microdermabrasion (including traditional exfoliation and a crystal microdermabrasion approach), but no matter how to approach this solution you’re going to need to make sure that your skincare routine following microdermabrasion is pitch-perfect as well in order for you the achieve optimal results without scarring and discolouration.

The right moisturizer can dramatically improve the results of your microdermabrasion. Whereas the wrong moisturizer could leave you with skin that is anything but youthful, glowing, and restored.
