Facials are not only a great way to relax after a tough week, they are also a great way to rejuvenate and give you soft and glowing skin. If you have never gotten a facial before, the first thing you should know is that not all facials are the same. Due to the many different types of facials and the way they are personalized for your skin, you will receive a facial that is meant for your skin type and your needs.

At Belle Ross Spa & Salon, we offer three different facials as well as organic skin care treatments using Eminence Organic Skin Care. Our facial services include:

  • Microdermabrasion
  • Dermaplane (comes with masking)
  • Dermaplane with facial

In this blog we are going to take a deeper look at microdermabrasion—how it works, the benefits, and why you should get it done.

How it Works

During a microdermabrasion treatment tiny aluminum crystals travel through a handpiece that is held against the skin. These tiny crystals exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin, which is sucked up by the handpiece.

Since this treatment removes the outer layer of dead skin cells, your skin is left looking younger, healthier, and smoother. Multiple microdermabrasion treatments are essential for the healthiest skin. The more treatments you get, the more your skin can create new layers with skin cells with high levels of collagen and elastin. Those are two essentials for healthy and beautiful skin.

The Benefits

An obvious benefit stated above is the appearance of healthy and youthful skin. This treatment lasts one hour, is non-invasive, and requires no chemicals. This treatment can reduce signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.

This treatment can improve acne scars, leaving skin smooth with a healthy glow. This is a great treatment for people with sensitive skin because it doesn’t use chemicals and the crystals are non-allergenic.

Who Should Get It

Microdermabrasion is a great treatment for many different skin types, but there are some people who should avoid this facial type. These include people who have deep scars, active keloids, active acne in stage three or four, unstable diabetes, and more.

This treatment can’t remove deep wrinkles or sagging skin, but it can help with mild cases of acne, can help reduce the redness from rosacea, and is great for people with relatively healthy skin who want to improve the appearance of their skin.
