Benefits of Microdermabrasion for Aging Skin

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation process typically done by an aesthetician or doctor in a spa or clinic. The treatment involves a small, rotating tool with an abrasive surface that moves over the face and removes the damaged top layers of skin. Microdermabrasion removes excess dirt and oil and unclogs pores, revealing fresh, new, youthful looking skin. 

Although anyone can benefit from microdermabrasion, those who are combating the negative impact of aging can really reap the rewards. In fact, going in for a microdermabrasion treatment is one of the best anti-aging processes you can get. Here are some of the benefits of microdermabrasion for aging skin.

Microdermabrasion Softens Fine Lines and Wrinkles by Removing the Damaged, Outer Layer of Older Skin

Microdermabrasion removes the rough, damaged outer layer of the facial skin. The process reveals a clean and glowing new layer that doesn’t show the severity of your previous fine lines and wrinkles. Although the complete elimination of wrinkles isn’t realistic especially as we get older, microdermabrasion is a great treatment to soften the appearance of these lines.

Microdermabrasion Decreases Pore Size on Aging Skin by Exfoliating the Epidermis

Another benefit of this facial treatment is that it can decrease the size of your pores. If you have large pores, whether through genetics or because of aging, your skin may be suffering from excess oil and dirt clogging them up. Microdermabrasion exfoliates the top layer of skin, getting rid of grime and effectively shrinking your pores. This not only makes your skin look younger, but can also add to a smoother makeup application.

Microdermabrasion Reduces Appearance of Age Spots and Blemishes by Encouraging New Collagen Growth

Microdermabrasion can also reduce the appearance of blemishes, age spots, and uneven facial tones. The process gets rid of the damaged outer layer of skin and encourages new collagen growth, which results in a more even skin tone and a smooth-looking face. 

Helps Alleviates Stress

One of the biggest advantages of receiving a microdermabrasion treatment is the stress relief. Regular treatments keep your skin smooth, fresh, and looking great, which can help alleviate your concerns when it comes to your skin care issues. 

Not to mention regularly scheduled spa treatments can give you a much-needed time to relax, sit back, and indulge in your beauty routine. 

Plus, stress can spark excess creation of the hormone cortisol, which can in turn, stimulate oil release and cause acne that will wreak havoc on your skin. So do yourself a favor and schedule a microdermabrasion appointment today!
