Sometimes our skin shows a lot about our age and past, whether it’s wrinkles, scars or acne, blemishes can remain on our skin for longer than we wish. With Microdermabrasion, you can help reduce the appearance of your aesthetic concerns. The Georgia Center for Female Health, located in Peachtree Corners, GA, offers these treatments on a schedule that’s best for your skin.
When it comes to our skin, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Our skin is as unique as our personalities and choosing the right approach takes skills and knowledge. With Microdermabrasion, our staff of skincare professionals will sit down and discuss all your skin’s needs, including the right schedule for you. Even though each treatment plan is custom, there are some general guidelines you can follow to give you an idea of how many times you should get Microdermabrasion.
How Does Microdermabrasion Help My Skin?
Our facials consist of non-chemical microcrystals used to remove the uppermost layer of your skin by way of exfoliating. This process gets rid of any dead skin and impurities, making way for healthy, new skin to be revealed.
This is ideal for skin blemishes you want to improve, such as congested skin, age spots, enlarged pores, discoloration, wrinkles, minor acne scarring, and hyperpigmentation. These facials improve the look, feel and texture of your skin, giving you an all-around brighter glow.
Once you’ve had your facial, we will help you choose the right follow-up skincare plan, which may include creams, lotions or serums to make sure your skin gets everything it needs to improve and continue its healing and healthy appearance. We will also discuss a custom plan for follow-up treatments.
Why Do We Need Microdermabrasion?
The skin on our face is thinner and more delicate than the skin found on the rest of our body and because of this, our face usually shows signs of sun damage, aging, dry or oily skin before other parts of our body. However, Microdermabrasion isn’t just for your face. While most people love the results on their face, you can have this done to any area that is bothersome.
These facials can be applied to your neck, chest, arms or hands. Any area that is prone to oiliness, dryness or blemishes will benefit from this type of exfoliating. The same process is involved whether it’s your face or your chest. The exfoliating will bring out newer, healthier skin to give your body smoother skin.
Why Is Exfoliating so Important?
Think of all the environmental elements our skin is up against. One of the greatest elements to do harm to our skin is the sun. Sun damage attributes to many of our skin problems, including dark spots, premature aging, wrinkles and fine lines.
Other things like oily skin or dry skin can lead to breakouts or skin irritations. Oils can clog pores and enlarge them. Dry skin can collect causing uneven and congested skin blemishes. All of this can contribute to dull skin.
Exfoliating removes those dead skins cells that build up on our skin. By removing dead skin cells, we are giving our skin a chance to heal and improve its appearance and texture. Exfoliating speeds up the process of cell regeneration. Repeating the exfoliating process will continue to rejuvenate healthy skin and erase the signs of skin damage. By combining exfoliating treatments with a good skin regime and the right skincare products, your healthy skin will shine through.
How Long Do These Treatments Last?
The great thing about facial treatments like Microdermabrasion is that they can be done quickly; usually within an hour. You could even schedule a treatment over your lunch break. You don’t have to block out your whole day. These treatments can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 60 minutes to complete.
How Many Times Should You Get Microdermabrasion?
There is not a definite schedule for how many times you should have this facial, as each treatment plan is customized. The frequency will be determined by your consultation and how well your skin receives each facial but typically you will need between five and twelve sessions to get the most out of these exfoliating facials.
You will want to space out your treatments. Usually three weeks is enough time between treatments for your skin, but this is something we can help you figure out in your customized treatment plan.
Keep in mind that many people benefit from these facials when the seasons change. Summer brings on lots of time in the sun, which can increase sun damage. Having facials after summer is a great time to reverse sun damage and give your skin a youthful glow for the upcoming holiday season.
Another ideal time for facials is after winter when you might be suffering from dry skin. Cold winters, brisk windy days, and dry heat in our homes and offices can cause our skin to become dull and dry. Having a facial before spring can bring out our healthy skin in time for flowers and warmer weather.
We can work with you to determine the ideal time for you to get your facial treatments. When we discuss a plan with you, we will take into consideration any upcoming events you have or special occasions that you may want to look your best for.
What Can You Expect From an Exfoliating Facial?
A skincare professional will use a small hand-held device to go over your skin. It has a pad with rough grains on it that smooth away dead skin cells. This treatment provides a deep clean that brightens your skin, leaving it soft and nourished. Because healthy skin is revealed, your skin will be more receptive to follow-up treatments, creams and serums. Your newer, healthier skin will absorb these much easier, reveling even brighter, smoother skin.
This facial is non-invasive, which means there are no injections. It’s a great treatment for those that want to avoid openings or surgeries. Since this is non-invasive and doesn’t use any harsh chemicals, there is not a long recovery time. You will be in and out of the office in no time and it won’t keep you from doing your normal routine.
Why You Should Always Use a Professional for Facials
There are many do-it-yourself kits in big box stores for facials and exfoliating treatments, but you should always trust a professional to help you identify and treat your skin blemishes and perform microdermabrasion. With exfoliating treatments and facials, you want to ensure they are done properly so your skin can receive the greatest benefit.
Having a professional provide you with your skin treatments ensures you are treating the right condition, performing the facial properly, spacing them out, abiding to the correct schedule, and properly treating your skin afterward. Why go through the trouble of getting a facial if you aren’t going to get the best results?
A skincare professional works with people every day to help improve their skin’s health and appearance. They know what will and will not work with certain skin types and what will get you the best results. We recommend you always use a skincare professional to do your facials. Your skin is the first thing people see, and you wouldn’t want to trust that to anyone but the best.
Will You Need Any Other Treatments?
This depends on your skin and what your goal is in rejuvenating your overall skin health. Facials can pair well together. After your exfoliating facial, there may be other facials you may benefit from. We offer anti-aging facial treatments to help combat the signs of aging and help rejuvenate your skin.
We are committed to ensuring the best skincare regimens and offering custom plans to meet your skin’s demands. Our facials combine a mixture of nutrients and peptides to give your skin a more youthful appearance. We also offer other treatments you might benefit from as well. Some of them include:
- PRP therapy
What Types of Skin Products Should You Use After a Facial?
We will work with you after your exfoliating treatment to determine what is best for your skin. We offer a wide range of high-quality skincare products that are specifically selected based on their results and are physician-approved. Some of the products we offer are:
- Corrective serums
While moisturizing is key to having healthy skin, if you have overly oily skin, we can offer products that combat oily skin that may lead to clogged pores and blemishes. Skin that is properly hydrated helps protect against sun damage and environmental elements that can damage your skin.
It’s not just what you put on your skin either than can make a difference. Drinking water and staying hydrated is just as important. Drinking plenty of water daily will not only help your skin look healthier but it will help your body flush out toxins that may have a negative impact on your skin.
We also offer sunscreen products that not only help protect your skin from the damaging sun but also moisturize it and provide key elements to help it stay healthy. Wearing sunscreen is vital to keeping your skin young and protecting your from premature aging, discoloration and age spots.
Combining Microdermabrasion with great skincare products that are right for your skin type, wearing sunscreen, and drinking plenty of water every day will help your skin look its best.
We aim to guide you to your best self, and that means looking at your skin through a holistic approach. It’s not just about one treatment or one product. It’s about doing what’s best for your skin that includes protecting it and giving it the best chance possible to have the best results.
