La Vie MedSpa
If you’ve been thinking about getting a microdermabrasion treatment, then you’re likely wondering about its effects and benefits. Renewing your skin texture and tone is big, but there are lots of other reasons to consider the treatment. Let’s get into these reasons so you can make an educated decision about whether to proceed with microdermabrasion in Opelousas, LA!
What does a microdermabrasion facial do?
Consider getting a microdermabrasion treatment if you want to exfoliate and renew your face’s skin. The treatment is a technique for physical exfoliation whereas a treatment like a chemical peel is a technique for chemical exfoliation. It’s possible to get both of these treatments together, but you may only want one.
Microdermabrasion is a deep, medical-grade exfoliation. Even though the exfoliation is really deep and thorough, microdermabrasion could be considered less invasive than a treatment like a chemical peel. An advantage of microdermabrasion is that often, only one treatment is necessary, but a series of treatments can offer longer-term and maintained results.
Is microdermabrasion good for your face?
Generally, yes, it sure is! However, it’s important to understand your particular skin type before you get a treatment. This is why you should have a consultation with us here at La Vie MedSpa. If you’ve got relatively normal, healthy skin and you’re worried about damaging your skin, then you really shouldn’t worry, as the only common side effects are minimal and temporary. They’re generally some skin tightness, redness, bruising, and sensitivity. These issues usually go away within about three days, and after about seven to ten days, you’ll be completely healed. After that, that’s it, and you can enjoy your new look!
Because microdermabrasion is a form of exfoliation, it is good for the skin and has a ton of benefits. Let’s get into those next!
What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?
Overall, microdermabrasion is great for the quality of your complexion, offering smoother, brighter skin and a refreshed look. This is the main benefit of microdermabrasion, but there are others too! As a form of exfoliation, microdermabrasion has benefits like unclogging the skin and uncovering new, healthier skin. For many patients, there are additional benefits like improving dry skin or oily skin, lessening the appearance of large pores, treating acne-prone skin, treating fine lines and wrinkles, and evening skin tone. You may have even more benefits beyond these. And did we mention yet that the effects of microdermabrasion are long lasting?
How long do the effects of microdermabrasion last?
You can expect to see significant results after your treatment, but keep in mind that the results vary from patient to patient and the results are generally cumulative. Cumulative results means additional treatments will usually give you better results. Also, maintenance treatments will help you prolong your results, and so can proper skin care. It’s recommended that you get a treatment every two to four weeks with six to twelve sessions. After that, maintenance sessions will help prolong results.
