Microdermabrasion is quickly becoming one of the most popular and most accessible skin treatments on the market. While it promises a softer, smoother and more youthful complexion, does microdermabrasion really live up to the hype?
Firstly, it is important to understand the concerns that can be treated. Microdermabrasion can be great for mild skin conditions including congestion and fine lines but is not effective for deeper problems such as scars, stretch marks, wrinkles or acne.
It is also commonly proclaimed that microdermabrasion is suitable for most skin types, however it is not this straightforward! Withoutthe correct knowledge and a thorough examination, it can actually do more harm than good for certain skin types.
For example, those with darker skin tones have a higher risk of experiencing scarring or discolouration. It is also important skin conditions such as rosacea, inflammation, and sensitivity are avoided or treated with extra care,
If microdermabrasion is not performed correctly, there is a risk of causing damage to the skin, including abrasions and adverse reactions- ouch!
So, what’s the alternative, we hear you asking?
These treatments work by using natural enzymes to target and dissolve dead skin cells. The result? A gentle, but effective treatment to alleviate a wide range of common skin woes!
Benefits include removing dead skin cells, promoting younger cells as well as reducing scars, stretch marks, age spots, fine lines and discoloration. This means cleaner pores and improved skin texture.
The greatest advantage of enzyme treatments is the ability to customise. Unlike microdermabrasion, which uses the same device to manually exfoliate, enzymes can be personalised. This means that with the right concoction, they are suitable for all skin types!
