Nothing says summer like glowing skin, and at VIDA we can help you take your summer skin to the next level with microdermabrasion. Our highly-skilled estheticians can give you incredible results using a gentle microdermabrasion technique to exfoliate the skin and vanquish dead skin cells. These sessions are short and can help reduce signs of sun damage and hyperpigmentation. It’s a great option to combine with other treatments such as chemical peels and microneedling.
Using microdermabrasion before a facial can help medical-grade skin care products best penetrate the pores and top layers of the skin. Microdermabrasion is an umbrella term that can mean many things (and methods), but at VIDA we only use a specialized diamond-tipped wand in order to give you the skin you want and deserve. DiamondTome is safe and soft on your skin so there’s no downtime.
Why Microdermabrasion is Important
The skin is the largest organ we have—we’ll help you take care of it. Dead skin cells, clogged pores, makeup, and environmental factors can all lead to dull skin tone, texture, and even breakouts. Routine washing is important, but every now and then your skin needs something a little more TLC. Microdermabrasion is the key to getting skin truly clean and prepped for other treatments.
Dermaplaning pairs especially well with the DiamondTome’s microdermabrasion. Dermaplaning is the removal of “peach fuzz” and other debris from the face using a small scalpel. Many clients opt for back-to-back microdermabrasion and dermaplaning sessions for the ultimate results. The best part? You don’t have to wait to apply makeup, sunscreen, or any other topical. Neither treatment is invasive or requires any after-care.
The results of microdermabrasion can last a few weeks. However, routine sessions are a good idea in order to treat yourself and keep enjoying the results. How often you should schedule treatments depends on several factors, including your unique skin cell turnover, at-home skin care regimen, other office treatments you choose to undergo, and environmental factors. Many clients schedule monthly sessions.
You might also want to schedule ongoing superficial chemical peel treatments to take your exfoliation to the next level. Chemical peels are available at various depths, and the lightest requires no downtime. You will look a little pink afterward for a few hours, but this sun-kissed look will simply have others thinking you spent your lunch break outdoors. A chemical peel is the perfect complement for microdermabrasion because it takes the treatment further, actually peeling away that top layer of skin to also kick-start collagen production.
Your Microdermabrasion Appointment
There’s nothing you have to do to get ready for a microdermabrasion appointment, though it helps to not have any products on your face when you arrive. These sessions are short and sweet, easily fitting into your lunch break. First skin is cleansed, then one of our experienced VIDA estheticians gently rolls the diamond-tipped wand across the treatment site.
Microneedling is not uncomfortable and many clients find it quite relaxing. If you’re looking for a way to pamper yourself or someone special in your life, microdermabrasion is a great choice. It’s also a fantastic “introductory” treatment for those who are just beginning their professional skin care journey.
Taking care of your skin doesn’t have to be costly, time-consuming, or uncomfortable. Microdermabrasion plays well with just about every other procedure and also makes a great gift for Father’s Day or the recent grad in your life.
