When you get a facial, you can pair it with a microdermabrasion. By doing so, you will be accelerating the cleansing process. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive process that helps to reduce the dead skin, while also improving cell regeneration. We do not recommend pairing a microdermabrasion with your facial treatment every month. Once every couple months is satisfactory.
For more information about a microdermabrasion and setting up an appointment, please get in touch with us today. We will happily answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding this process. We want your skin to look healthy and fresh after every facial. Let’s learn a little more about microdermabrasion and how it works. And check out all of the skincare treatments we offer at our spa.
Who is Microdermabrasion for?
Microdermabrasion, like any skincare treatment, is not for everyone. It is considered a safe procedure for most skin types and colors though. There are some skin concerns that lead to one considering a microdermabrasion. Here is a short list of some of those skin conditions:
- fine lines and wrinkles
- stretch marks
- hyperpigmentation, age spots and brown spots
- sun damage
- enlarged pores and blackheads
- acne and acne scars
- dull-looking skin complexion
- uneven skin tone and texture
Our Microdermabrasion Treatment
At The Spa at Red Hots, we offer a treatment called “The Micro Manager,” which is our fun way of describing microdermabrasion. It is a non-invasive, resurfacing procedure that uses a spray of micronized crystal particles that will banish dead surface cells. This treatment helps to reduce the appearance of sun-spots, fine lines, and scarring. On top of that, it helps promote overall cell renewal and collagen production.
At the end of the treatment, we finish off with a hydrating vitamin C mask. This treatment costs $135 for a single microdermabrasion treatment. For a series of 6, we offer it for $688.
Prepping for Microdermabrasion
Since microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure, there is not much to need to do in order to prepare for it. But there are some considerations to keep in mind. It is always good idea to discuss your skin concerns with us beforehand to make sure microdermabrasion is the right option for you. We can discuss any past cosmetic procedures and surgeries to see if they play a role. And we will also be sure to discuss any allergies and other medical conditions.
In the week leading up to treatment, we typically recommend avoiding extra exposure to the sun, not using tanning creams, and do not get a wax. And in some cases, we may ask you to stop using exfoliating creams and masks about 3 days before the treatment. Otherwise you may compromise the treatment
And of course, you must remove any makeup before the microdermabrasion and cleanse your face before the procedure begins.
What to Expect After Treatment
After you receive the microdermabrasion, there is little to no downtime. So you should be able to get back to normal living as soon as you walk out of the door. We recommend keeping your skin fully hydrated in the aftermath of the treatment and to use gentle skin care products. In most cases, we recommend avoiding topical acne medication for at least one full day after the treatment. And it is very important to protect your skin with sunscreen in the few weeks after the treatment, because your skin may be extra sensitive to sunlight. Thus undoing all the work of the microdermabrasion.
The results of the treatment are immediate. You will notice a difference the moment you exit the spa room. Sometimes more treatments are necessary, but our staff will help you reach the best conclusion for your situation.
