Facials & Microdermabrasion
Facials and microdermabrasion are a great way to rejuvenate your face without the use of overly harsh tools or chemicals. At Seattle Skin & Laser, we have facials and microdermabrasion techniques available for your unique skin concerns.
What is a Facial and Microdermabrasion?
Facials and microdermabrasion are noninvasive treatments for facial rejuvenation. The outer layers of skin are targeted to improve the following:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Acne scarring
- Other mild discoloration
Facials are customized to your specific skin type and concerns using cleansing, steam, exfoliation, and massage. Microdermabrasion offers exfoliation of the outer layers of skin to smooth away dead skin cells and imperfections to reveal new, healthy skin. Facials and microdermabrasion can be done alone or combined for a more effective result.
What to Expect with a Facial and Microdermabrasion
During microdermabrasion, a mildly abrasive tool will be used to gently exfoliate the skin. The top layer is removed to show smooth skin underneath. Collagen growth is also stimulated to replace lost skin cells, resulting in stronger skin. With dead skin cells smoothed away, facial cleansers and masks can penetrate the skin more effectively to deliver optimal skin rejuvenation.
Results and Recovery
Side effects after microdermabrasion are minimal. You might experience mild redness and your newly revealed skin might be more sensitive at first. You should avoid sun exposure because you can burn more easily. You can enjoy your results of a facial and microdermabrasion through your skins natural cycle, then you might choose to return for future treatment to maintain your smooth skin and receive further improvements.
