If you are looking for a way to achieve skin that is smoother and brighter, microdermabrasion is an excellent option for you. At Newport Face N Body in Irvine, CA, we offer this service to clients who wish to rejuvenate their skin in a way that is mild and safe. This is a straightforward, minimally invasive treatment that can improve the appearance of your skin in under an hour.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a quick, minimally invasive treatment that can brighten your skin and improve its overall tone and texture. It is one of the most popular methods used to address specific skin conditions. It is also an excellent way to generally enhance one’s appearance.
This service is an effective way to treat dull skin, large pores, acne marks, and an uneven complexion, among other concerns. Following the treatment, your skin will feel renewed, smooth, soft, and healthy.
During this service, we use a special, hand-held applicator to remove the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing brighter, healthier skin underneath. Microdermabrasion is essentially a sophisticated means of exfoliation that can provide more thorough results than one could achieve with cleansers or textured tools at home.
What Are the Benefits of This Service?
Microdermabrasion can improve the texture of your skin and address specific issues. After just one session, you will notice that you have a healthier, more radiant appearance. A series of sessions can have enhanced benefits, including:
- Brighter skin
- More youthful appearance
- Reduced acne scars
- Improvement of dry, flakey skin
- Improvement of adult acne or oily skin
- Reduced appearance of stretch marks
- Minimization of fine lines
- Lessened appearance of wrinkles
- Improved hyperpigmentation
- Reduced poor size
How Will Your Skin Respond?
This service activates your skin’s natural rejuvenating processes. The top two layers of your skin are the epidermis and the dermis. This service works by thoroughly exfoliating the epidermis, which then stimulates cell growth and renewal in the dermis. After the treatment, your skin will restore itself and the new skin will be fresh and supple.
In addition to the above-mentioned benefits, this treatment can improve your circulation and enhance the efficacy of certain topical products. This means that if you are using anti-aging creams, special moisturizers, or products to address acne, they will absorb into your skin better following a treatment. Lotions that contain vitamins and anti-oxidants will also have greater benefits to your skin.
What Happens Before Your Treatment?
Prior to your treatment, you will have a consultation with one of our dermatologists. They will assess your skin and ask you about your medical history and any treatments you have previously had. During this consultation, you should let us know what results you wish to see following the treatment, and we will most likely recommend a series that will specifically address your situation.
What Should You Do to Prepare?
We recommend that you avoid sun exposure and discontinue any at-home exfoliation a few days prior to your treatment. Leave your skin makeup-free on the day of your session.
What Happens During the Treatment?
The Most Advanced Medical Technology
Microdermabrasion was invented in Italy in the 1980s. Since then, hundreds of devices have been approved for use in medspas. At Newport Face N Body, we are dedicated to staying on top of the most cutting-edge techniques to help our clients look and feel their best. For this service, we use the Diamond Tip, which is one of the most powerful and effective tools available.
When applied to the skin, the Diamond Tip gently sands away a thin outer layer of skin and simultaneously suctions it clean. The suctioning action also serves to bring the skin closer to the device where it can be treated. This stimulates the natural process by which your skin keeps itself new and supple. The skin that grows back will be smoother and have a finer, more even complexion.
An Optional Facial
During your session, you will change into a gown and lie on a bed. One of our licensed estheticians will cleanse and prepare your skin. The actual dermabrasion takes less than half an hour, during which the device will be applied to your face, gently polishing away the rough outer layer of skin. To conclude, we will apply a moisturizer and an SPF.
If you like, we can add a facial to this service. This will include a mask and a massage. With the facial, the total time for the appointment will be about one hour.
How Does Microdermabrasion Feel?
This service is painless and does not require any anesthetic or a numbing agent. You will feel a light scrubbing sensation as the Diamond Tip polishes your skin.
Who Can Benefit From This Service?
People of Many Skin Types
This service is safe and effective for people of all skin types and complexions. Every complexion can benefit, and it is even suitable for those prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Men As Well As Women
Both men and women can enjoy the benefits of this service.
People With Challenging Skin Concerns
People with adult acne and/or oily skin can minimize the appearance of this condition with this service. Conversely, people with overly dry, flakey skin will feel softer and more even after their appointment.
Those Who Wish to Remove Damaged Skin Tissue
If you have skin tissue that is sun-damaged or stressed for any other reason, this service will help revitalize it. Sometimes, even harsh weather or pollutants in the environment can accumulate and take a toll on our faces. The exfoliating action of the Diamond Tip buffs away the old tissue, allowing it to be replaced with new, healthy skin cells.
Those Who Want to Reduce the Signs of Aging
If you have goals for minimizing the signs of aging, this service can help you meet them. You will look revitalized after just one treatment, and the benefits will accumulate progressively with each additional session. You can look forward to a softer, more youthful texture, with smaller pores and reduced fine lines. Your true beauty is on the inside, below the surface. Microdermabrasion can help you bring it forward.
How Many Sessions Should You Schedule?
The number of sessions that is right for you will depend on the results you wish to see and the current condition of your skin. You will notice more vibrant-looking skin after just one treatment. If you wish to improve the appearance of fine lines, acne marks, or hyperpigmentation, we recommend 6-10 appointments, spaced about 10 days apart. For the best anti-aging results, we recommend regular weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly appointments.
Looking Your Best for a Special Occasion
If you have a special occasion coming up, this service can help you look fresh and feel prepared. In addition to finding the perfect outfit and planning your hair and makeup, this service will give you the confidence you deserve. When you feel your best, you can relax and enjoy your special day or night.
Renew Your Skin and Give Your Face a Fresh Start
If you just want to refresh your appearance and uncover the most beautiful skin you have, several treatments can be extremely effective. Maybe you want to start some new phase in your life or usher in a new season with a radiant glow. This service can help you show the world that you are ready for a bright future.
When combined with a good skincare regimen, ongoing treatments can help you feel that you are always looking your best.
What Should You Do Following the Treatment?
Avoid Sun Exposure and Use Moisturizer
After the treatment, we recommend that you stay out of the sun for a few days and use only gentle products on your skin. During this time, it is not necessary to exfoliate. If you usually use products to treat acne, you can give them a rest for a few days.
You should be sure to use sunscreen and moisturizer every day. In fact, we recommend that every person use SPF daily, regardless of the other aspects of their skincare regimen. This service is most effective in combination with a daily routine that includes an SPF.
Resume Normal Activities
This is a gentle service that does not require any downtime. You can usually expect your skin to be fully recovered within 24 hours. This treatment was specially developed to be easy on your skin and to work for people who cannot tolerate more intense services.
There is no scarring and no lasting change to the color of your skin. You can resume normal activities and go about your day as usual immediately following your treatment. Therefore, microdermabrasion is especially beneficial for people whose schedules do not allow any recovery period.
You will enjoy a luminous glow immediately following your service, and you can schedule it prior to a special event. If you are planning to use this service in preparation for an important occasion, our expert estheticians can help you determine the optimal time to book your appointment. This service is a great way to feel beautiful before a wedding, gala, birthday party, vacation, or other event.
Learn How to Best Care for Your Face
As part of your session, our licensed aestheticians will discuss your skin care regimen with you. We will give you information about how you can maintain your new glow following your treatment.
