At Bliss Facial Spa we use a diamond tip microdermabrasion wand instead of a micro-crystal flow machine that offers increased results in medical skin care.  This machine uses sterile diamond heads to remove the outer layer of the skin, and all excess particles and dirt are vacuumed from the surface of the complexion. This treatment allows for better product absorption to see greater results from your skin care products that you use at home.

Q: What Is Microdermabrasion?

A: Microdermabrasion is a facial procedure that uses topical and manual exfoliation to remove the outer layer of skin. This process works in a series to reduce hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and acne scars through exfoliation. You will leave the treatment with fresh and smooth skin, which will begin to repair and rejuvenate itself to treat a number of skin concerns.

Q: What Can I Expect from a Treatment?

A: Within a microdermabrasion treatment, the skin will first of all be cleansed with a cleanser appropriate to each skin type. At that point, a cooling gel will be applied to the surface of the skin so that the microdermabrasion wand can flow smoothly over the complexion to remove all dead skin. The entire procedure should take roughly 20 minutes, and it will conclude by removing the cool gel and dead skin, toning the skin, applying the treatment serum, and applying a moisturizer and SPF.

Q: What Will Microdermabrasion Do?

A: Overall, microdermabrasion will reduce the appearance of wrinkles, remove acne scars, clear up blackheads, minimize the size of the pores, reduce sun damage, and even out the skin tone. Microdermabrasion also helps to boost collagen production to provide firming and toning to the complexion.

Q: Is There Any Downtime After a Treatment?

A: Microdermabrasion is a safe and gentle procedure with no downtime. The client will need to protect his or her skin with moisturizer and sunblock for 24 hours after the treatment and may experience mild redness and peeling. However, the client can return to work immediately, which is why many clients prefer to have microdermabrasion treatments on their lunch breaks since there is no downtime.

Q: How Many Treatments Do I Need?

A: When it comes to microdermabrasion, one treatment will not provide visible results, however, it is important to have a series of microdermabrasions, and 4 to 6 are recommended for the best results. These initial 4 to 6 treatments can be spaced one week apart, and from that point, the client can continue to receive one treatment on a monthly basis for the best maintenance.
