How to Care for Your Skin After Microdermabrasion
Our last blog post introduced our microdermabrasion treatment, a non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery. It is used primarily to treat scarring, dark marks, textured skin, dull or aging skin, enlarged pores, and hyper-pigmentation. As an added bonus, it can help treat oily skin. That’s a lot of benefits!
Our beauty crew loves microdermabrasion because of its rapid recovery time and results that are seen almost immediately. Usually, you will notice a change after the first treatment. You can reserve a consultation to discuss a customized treatment plan for your skin goals.
What to Expect Following Your Microdermabrasion Treatment
Most of our gorgeous clients experience dramatic improvements in color, tone, and texture of treated areas. Generally speaking, microdermabrasion helps skin become thicker, healthier, and more youthful-looking because your body will begin to produce new layers of skin that contain higher levels of elastin and collagen. It does this over a course of receommended treatments, improving the complexion and giving the skin a more radiant, vibrant glow.
It’s typical for the complexion of the skin to appear pink or red following microdermabrasion. This usually fades after a day. You may feel as though your skin was sunburned or windburned, but this subsides fairly quickly. You may use moisturizer and wear makeup immediately following your microdermabrasion treatment.
You’ve Completed Your Microdermabrasion Treatment. What Now?
To minimize recovery time and maximize microdermabrasion results, it is important to keep the new skin clean and moisturized. It is also important to avoid sun exposure immediately after microdermabrasion until the skin heals. Use moisturizer daily to reduce any peeling that may occur.
Be sure to drink plenty of water and eat a diet rich in vitamins and minerals (even when you aren’t post treatment!) to stimulate healing. Feeding the body what it needs keeps skin healthy, and promotes healthy cell growth.
We recommend using the following Perfec-Tone products to enhance your results.
Products to Use After Microdermabrasion Treatment for Best Results
Quench skin’s thirst for moisture after microdermabrasion with Miracle Moisturizer. Organic avocado, mango and shea butter blend with natural vitamins and antioxidants derived from green tea extract, and replenish skin’s moisture balance. Extra-strength elastin restores skin’s elasticity while powerful peptides or ‘mini-proteins’ penetrate skin’s protective barrier, prompting cells to produce more collagen so skin acts and feels younger.
Resurfacing Crème should be used at night to exfoliate dull, dry cells while you sleep. It also helps diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and the appearance of dark marks and scars.
Additionally, if you are treating five marks or less, Spot Treatment fades dark blemishes and works deep below the skin’s surface to enhance your microdermabrasion results. You may also turn to our very popular Refining Crème if there are no dark marks to treat. This nourishing crème hydrates and smooths skin, repairs cell growth, and refines skin’s tone and texture. Sculpting Serum is great for healing skin after using Resurfacing Crème. It stimulates cell renewal and replenishes essential nutrients.
