Crystal MicrodermabrasionIs the frigid air making your face feel rough and dry? Get an instant facelift with a quick and non-invasive crystal microdermabrasion procedure! Offering immediate results of a softer and smoother complexion, crystal microdermabrasion was originally developed in Europe and is now the most popular type of microdermabrasion treatment available in the United States.

The Procedure

Aluminum oxide crystals are sprayed over target areas on your face by a microdermabrasion specialist. The crystals exfoliate your skin using heat, force and friction, while the machine’s vacuum system sucks away dirt, dead skin cells and used crystals from your face.

Convenient and virtually painless, crystal microdermabrasion treatments can be performed during your lunch hour! Appointments take only 30­-60 minutes.

While crystal microdermabrasion recovery is nearly nonexistent, results are immediate. Although the treated skin may be pink for an hour or two after treatment, there is zero risk of peeling. You can even apply makeup right after a treatment to conceal any visible signs of the procedure.

The Results

After the crystal microdermabrasion treatment gives your face a good scrub, the healing process brings thicker, smoother, more elastic skin. The treatment will not only make your face feel fresh and healthy, it also effectively fades and removes a variety of skin conditions, including:

  • Age Spots
  • Mild Acne
  • Fine Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Other Blemishes

It is important to apply moisturizing cream after your procedure, as microdermabrasion temporarily removes some moisture from your skin.

The Verdict

Crystal microdermabrasion is simple and effective for all skin types and colors. If you are looking for a quick, non-invasive procedure that will help your face look and feel refreshed and rejuvenated, crystal microdermabrasion is the treatment for you!

Age spots

Did you spend LOTS of time in the sun during your younger days? Have brown spots recently popped up on your hands or face? From around the age of 40 and up, your skin becomes less capable of dealing with sun exposure and expands with extra pigment as a result. These “age” spots, which look like large freckles, are also known as sun spots or liver spots and are completely harmless. While age spots are benign, they can be unsightly. Treatments for age spots range from home remedies to procedures at skin clinics. Here are five treatments worth checking out.

  1. Laser Therapy: Backed by science and research, laser treatment eliminates melanin-producing cells without damaging your skin. While laser treatment can require multiple sessions, it is minimally invasive and fades age spots over the course of a few weeks. Sun protection is highly recommended following a laser procedure.
  2. Chemical Peel: Exfoliation to the next level. This technique uses a solution to improve the look of your skin so it looks and feels new and healthy. While more than one treatment may be recommended, your new skin will be smoother and undamaged by the sun. Sun protection is necessary following a chemical peel.
  3. Medication: Prescription bleaching cream (hydroquinone) is often used to fade age spots over several weeks or months. Sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 is strongly advised if you use medication treatments, along with the application of 4% zinc oxide.
  4. Micro-Dermabrasion: This treatment exfoliates your skin with aluminum oxide crystals for an immediate softer and smoother effect. Akin to controlled sandblasting, the crystals remove your dead skin and stimulates your skin to produce new, healthier skin cells.
  5. BroadBand Light (BBL): BBL gently heats up your skin to stimulate the growth of new, smoother skin cells. Safe and non-invasive, BBL’s photothermal energy also removes unwanted melanin responsible for extra pigment. Typical BBL treatment ranges from 2-5 procedures at 4-8 week intervals.

Try any of these treatments to get rid of those pesky age spots and enjoy healthy, younger looking skin.
