Ever heard of a “Micro Facial” and thought is that a really small facial? Maybe someone has said you should try “Microdermabrasion” but you are not really sure what that means. Well here is an explanation of what Microdermabrasion Facials are and how the team at Elements Beauty Spa in Applecross can use it to give your fresher skin today.
Types of Skin Exfoliation
Microdermabrasion, often called micro, is basically a method of skin exfoliation. Skin can be exfoliated in two ways. One is chemical exfoliation and you may have heard it referred to as a skin peel. At our beauty salon and skin clinic we do offer these types of facials and they are fabulous for correcting skin issues but there is also another type of exfoliation, mechanical.
Mechanical Exfoliation in a Microdermabrasion Facials
There are two versions of mechanical exfoliation microdermabrasion. One is done using a machine that uses micro crystals. The other version uses a machine with suction and a diamond tipped wand. At our Elements Beauty Spa skin clinic we use the diamond tipped wand microdermabrasion. It is very effective but cleaner and more controlled than crystals.
Our fast but super effective Microderm facial uses the power of our diamond wand microdermabrasion machine to really refresh your skin. It’s perfect for a good, deep and instant exfoliation. It’s only forty five minutes and there is no down time. We even apply a calming treatment mask to soothe your skin The diamond wand removes dead skin cells gently but very effectively.
It’s a great facial as a starting point for a new skin care program giving you a clean slate to start with. It can also be used as every month or so as a skin boosting treatment. The fact that it is a fast and simple appointment makes it a great add on to your regular waxing, manicure or pedicure appointment.
