ATLANTA (February 16, 2006) – Microdermabrasion, a non-surgical skin exfoliation procedure, is an excellent way to improve the appearance and feel of facial skin. Tiny crystals are gently sprayed onto the face and suction is used to create an exfoliation effect to remove the dead outer layer of the skin. This procedure and accompanying facial mask takes about one hour to complete and helps to remove fine lines, superficial age spots and acne scars as well as refining large pores. Microdermabrasion has become an increasingly popular skin resurfacing choice because it is low risk and has a quick recovery time when compared with other techniques in this category. Clients will feel little to no discomfort and can resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure. Atlanta Institute of Aesthetics applies a skin calming treatment and intensive moisturizer to reduce any redness or mild flaking, which sometimes occurs after the procedure.
A word of caution, the newly exposed skin must be protected from the sun since it can easily burn. Apply a high SPF sunscreen and avoid the sun for a few days following the procedure. It is recommended that clients complete a course of 6-8 treatments spaced at least one week apart. Noticeable results are longer lived following a series of treatments.
