What Is Microdermabrasion And How Does It Improve Your Skin?

Without a doubt, one of the best benefits of living in San Diego is the eternally perfect weather. San Diegans spend a lot of time outdoors, taking advantage of the beautiful beaches and balmy breezes, soaking up the California sunshine.

But all that sun exposure can wreak havoc on your skin. Not only does sun damage make your skin dull and dry, but it also causes discoloration and wrinkles, prematurely aging your appearance.

The good news is, there’s a way to help reverse the signs of aging caused by sun damage and other environmental factors. With microdermabrasion from Siti Med Spa, you can improve the tone and texture of your skin, and turn back the hands of time.

Microdermabrasion: What is it?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that exfoliates your skin and rejuvenates your complexion. Miniscule crystals are used to remove the surface layer of epidermal cells, revealing the smooth, flawless skin beneath. Superficial imperfections, such as acne scars, discoloration, and sun damage, are buffed and polished away, allowing your body to replace dead, dry skin with new, healthy cells. The result is a fresh face and a younger-looking appearance.

The many benefits of microdermabrasion

There are so many ways microdermabrasion can improve your skin – both aesthetically and physiologically.

  • Refine pores.

While there’s no way to shrink the actual size of your pores, microdermabrasion can help to significantly reduce their appearance by unclogging the oil and dead skin trapped inside.

  • Stimulate blood flow

The gentle exfoliation of a microdermabrasion treatment improves circulation in your face, which encourages efficient healing and restoration of your skin.

  • Increase collagen production

The amount of collagen our bodies produce declines with age. Microdermabrasion can help you generate more collagen and elastin, resulting in tighter, smoother skin.

  • Balance uneven skin tone

If you’re suffering from hyperpigmentation, dark spots, or light acne scars, microdermabrasion can help to even out your skin tone by sloughing away dead, discolored skin.

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles

Microdermabrasion can minimize the appearance of superficial wrinkles, making it a must-have in your arsenal of anti-aging treatments.

Pumpkin Peel: the perfect complement to microdermabrasion

To help speed up the healing process and soothe your skin after microdermabrasion, we recommend a pumpkin peel to breathe new life into your complexion. Rich in antioxidants, such as Vitamins A and C, a pumpkin peel can infuse your freshly exfoliated skin with nutrients to foster healthy cell growth. And by applying the pumpkin peel immediately following microdermabrasion, you reap the full benefits of this nourishing treatment.
