Skin aging is a natural process. However, in the modern world we have at our disposal several techniques that can make our skin look and feel younger and healthier. One of the best methods for skin rejuvenation is Microdermabrasion. This is one of the newest skin-caring techniques that was first available only to very few celebrities but has evolved since then and is now a treatment anybody can afford.
Microdermabrasion is known as the ‘instant facelift’ providing you with the quickest results in forever young skin treatments. In such a way, it is a very good alternative to sometimes more expensive and, more importantly, more invasive surgical procedures such as plastic surgery and Botox or Juvederm injections. With the benefits microdermabrasion offers it is quickly becoming one of the best choices for skin rejuvenation. Microdermabrasion is very simple in concept and can be similar to techniques used in laser hair removal or skincare. A diamond tipped head is used to peel away the surface layer of skin, revealing the healthy and young-looking skin underneath. Usually it is applied to the face, but can also be used on chest, necks, arms or hands making it very versatile. The part of the skin microdermabrasion peels off is called epidermis – underneath the fresh young dermis is just waiting to shine through.
One of the best things about microdermabrasion is that it has quick but long-lasting effects. This is why it is advised by some of the best skin doctors in the world. On the other hand, microdermabrasion is also a lot more affordable than other skin treatments – which of course need to be repeated at least every half a year as it is the case with Botox or Juvederm.
