Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation treatment that removes dead cells and promotes the production of new collagen. The treatment works by moving a high-speed instrument across the skin that blasts the skin with tiny crystals, then sucks them up.
The treatment is normally performed in a day medical spa by licensed estheticians who have obtained their microdermabrasion certifications through esthetician school or an independent skin care product line.
Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective treatments available today for improving the appearance and texture of the skin. It can be used to treat a variety of different skin problems such as wrinkles, fine lines, scars, sun damage, age spots, pigmentation issues, dry skin, stretch marks, and more.
Microdermabrasion is sometimes called the “lunchtime facelift” because it can make a significant improvement to the skin in a short amount of time. Here are three benefits of microdermabrasion to help you decide if the treatment is right for you:
Although you benefit from a single treatment, the best results occur with multiple microdermabrasion sessions. A skilled esthetician will recommend the number of treatments that’s appropriate for your skin type and condition.
Because it’s such a popular, in-demand service, it can be very profitable for estheticians to become certified in microdermabrasion! The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts jobs for licensed estheticians to grow 25% between 2010 and 2020.
