Microdermabrasion: The Secret Plastic Surgeons Don’t Want You to Know!

Reversing the signs of aging doesn’t have to mean going under the knife for a painful procedure with a long recovery time. There are many non-invasive methods to reducing those annoying fine lines and wrinkles while also bringing out your skin’s natural glow.  Doing Microdermabrasion at home is one of those do-it-yourself skin care treatments that every plastic surgeon wishes you didn’t know about.

What is Microdermabrasion?

You probably know all about Botox and its anti-aging properties, but you may know little about Microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that lifts away dead skin cells to show smoother skin through exfoliation. When done by professionals, it involves equipment to spray small crystals across the facial tissue, mixing mild exfoliation with suction to get rid of the dead skin.


The DIY Treatment

While it can be done at a dermatologist and spa, there are many effective products that allow you to conduct the treatment at home.  After all, a weekly appointment at the spa can be difficult to manage while juggling work and home responsibilities.

Like a quick Dysport treatment at the spa, Microdermabrasion also offers you fast anti-aging results in just minutes. Microdermabrasion sloughs away the top layer of your skin which has been harmed by pollution and the sun in order to increase cell turnover. It can also help to reduce the appearance of acne scars.

Many ‘Microdermabrasion at Home Formulas’ not only smooth those fine lines, but can also clear up any pigmentation issues. These at home products typically work like exfoliators without the need for the tools used at the dermatologist or spa. While at home products work great for mild exfoliation, professional treatments offer quicker results.

Why You’ll Love It

Microdermabrasion can easily become an integral part of your home skin care regimen, especially after you see the results of your first time. It helps to remove skin debris, rejuvenate your skin and give you a fresh face.  Depending on your skin type, it can be done weekly or monthly.

Microdermabrasion may not turn back the clock as quickly as a Juvéderm treatment, but it can certainly keep you looking your best in between trips to your medical spa.

Now, if you feel like you HAVE to choose Microdermabrasion because your wallet doesn’t allow a professional treatment, don’t worry. At Borges Medical Spa we are proud to offer a Care Credit financing plan to our valued clients to help them in their pursuit of beautiful, healthy skin that defies time.
