Crystal Microdermabrasion for Crystal Clear Beauty

The skin’s natural process of getting rid of dead skin cells and then eventually restoring them with new cells takes a slow path as a person becomes older. This process of slowing down builds up dead skin cells which results in the following:

  •          Your skin appears dull.
  •          Pores get blocked.
  •          Wrinkles become more visible.

As I celebrated my 30th birthday, I was worried about these problems. As time flew, I started experiencing them, until I discovered crystal microdermabrasion. This is a treatment that eliminates excessive dead skin cells and dirt. Crystal microdermabrasion uses crystals to discharge the skin’s outer layer. It then sucks the dead cells out of your skin. This process gave my skin a smoother and younger look.

How Crystal Microdermabrasion Works

Crystal microdermabrasion gives you your desired look. When you go for professional service from a salon, crystal microdermabrasion is done through a machine which vacuums your skin. The suction stimulates lymph node draining, as well as increases the flow of blood in your skin. This increase in blood flow makes the skin restore itself quickly. The machine then discharges small crystals that break up the accumulated dead cells on the outer layer of the skin.

The process goes with the machine draining off the crystals while sucking the dead skin cells. The result is obvious – smooth and young looking skin.

The Wonderful Effects of Crystal Microdermabrasion

Crystal microdermabrasion gives you many other benefits, aside from its beautiful effect on the skin.

  • Reduces wrinkles
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Diminishes acne scars as well as freckles
  • Requires no recovery time

A lot of people undergo crystal microdermabrasion because, as compared to surgical procedures, crystal microdermabrasion is harmless and entails no risks. You also need not worry about allergies. Since the procedure only involves the outer surface of your skin, the tendency of allergic reactions is low.

Drawbacks of Crystal Microdermabrasion to Consider

Every good thing has a few limitations. Crystal microdermabrasion also has its downfalls. Though none of this happened to me, but I’m including them as a precautionary measure.

  •   Not advisable for young teens and pregnant women going through hormonal changes
  •   May cause respiratory problems
  •   May irritate eyes
  •   May bring light or dark spots on the skin
  •   Your skin may become too sensitive to face a bright day
  •   Your skin may peel off and may contain red flakes 

Knowing about the side effects of microdermabrasion will help you take proper precautions, and so you can be more careful in trying out this treatment. It is always best to consult a skin care specialist to give you the best advice for your skin type.
