Microdermabrasion Questions Answered!
Isn’t Microdermabrasion a Scary Medical Spa Treatment?
Exfoliation and microdermabrasion seem like big, scary words only appropriate for medical spa treatments or super expensive, designer skin care products. We are here to tell you that they aren’t scary. And they are not just reserved for uber wealthy facial lovers. Microdermabrasion in particular has been thought to only be available as an in-depth spa treatment. Now, it is right at your fingertips in Camille Coton’s Smooth, Erase, Reveal skin care regimen. It consists of a soft microdermabrasion cream and a hydrating serum. The words soft and microdermabrasion seem to negate one another, but this is the kind of treatment that is recommended by dermatologists. Free from harsh, scratchy microbeads and irritating acids, the cream dissolves the dead skin cells while the dry wash cloth gently buffs the remaining cells away.
Why is microdermabrasion important?
Your skin has many layers, and in order to achieve that coveted glow, microdermabrasion is key. Think of an artist getting ready to paint something. He or she needs to start with a blank canvas to create a masterpiece. It is the same with your skin. Microdermabrasion makes your skin into a clean slate, clearing away all the unnecessary junk that clogs pores. In addition, incorporating microdermabrasion into your skincare regimen can cause the skin to be refreshed and bright. It is important to use high quality products at a recommended frequency of no more than 2-3 times per week. This helps your skin receive the optimum benefit without damaging it. Camille Coton’s formula is especially gentle. Our microbead-and-acid-free microdermabrasion cream removes dead skin cells without causing harmful irritation.
Why does frequency matter?
The microdermabrasion cream should be done 2-3 times per week for normal to oily skin, and once a week for dry or sensitive skin. Your skin needs time to fully regenerate before the next round of microdermabrasion. Treatments too often can cause the skin to become sensitive, thinner, and more susceptible to wrinkles. It can also cause irritation, splotchy complexion, and breakouts that result from stripping your skin of its natural oils. In short, a little microdermabrasion goes a long way and it’s important to find the right balance for your skin.
What do I do after microdermabrasion?
After exfoliation or microdermabrasion, it is important to make sure your skin is hydrated and nourished. It is recommended to apply a serum or moisturizing cream after treatment. Camille Coton’s Cotton BB Bloom Balm Oil serum helps the skin be rejuvenated and rebuilds the healthy layers. It also tones the skin, tightens pores, and evens out your skin tone so that your whole complexion is brighter and smoother.
