What Is Micro-dermabrasion // Beauty Treatments

So you may know i am doing a blog series about beauty therapy, i started of by doing posts on the courses Beauty therapy level 2,3,4 and 5. And now im going to start doing posts on the treatments you can have in a salon or a SPA, that either people don't know about or people don't know what it actually does or the benefits of it are.

So today im going to start of with micro-dermabrasion.
The picture below shows you what the machine and the micro-derm head looks like.

Micro-dermabrasion is a deep exfoliating treatment which removes the top layer of dead skin cells and revels new cells making your skin look healthy with a refreshed glow. The top layer of skin gets rejuvenated, which means collagen production is stimulated leaving feeling plumed and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
The treatment also helps to reduce scars, pigmentation, rosacea and redness.

The tool that is used has either a diamond or crystal head, crystal heads are a lot more harsh and can hurt a tiny bit unlike diamond head.

You can have the treatment on your face, decolletage and back.

The head of the machine spins round, the faster it goes the less harsh it is and the slower it goes the more harsh it is, your therapist will change this depending on your skin type. Half of your face and decolletage are done at one time and then the therapist will move on to the other side. As the head spins the therapist will also move their hand around in circles whilst holding the machine and will also taught the clients skin so the skin doesn't get pulled by the crystals or diamond head.

The treatment is included into a regular facial and is done instead of using an exfoliater. The machine is used on dry skin, with no product underneath. A collagen ampule is used after to add moisture back into the skin.

I hoped this helped and if you have any questions feels free to ask.
