Reversing the Summer Sun

With summer coming to an end and the fall season upon us, it’s time to reflect on our skin and how to reverse the damage of the summer sun.  While there are many preventative steps to take in our skincare routines, sometimes even the best efforts can result in sun damaged skin at the end of the summer season.  At Alazzo Med Spa, we offer Microdermabrasion, a great way to get rid of the damage.

What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses a multi-level vacuum system to exfoliate and remove the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells.  By removing the dead skin cells on the surface we can stimulate the body to produce new skin cells giving you a more youthful, smoother, softer look and feel that’s close to truly ageless skin. Huffington Post offers to clear up common misconceptions in their article “What Is Microdermabrasion, And Will It Improve Your Skin?” which confirms that patients with fine lines, uneven pigmentation or clogged pores may benefit most from a series of microdermabrasion treatments.

Why Exfoliate?

When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of your skin, especially your face, it can leave skin looking dull, rough and dry.  In addition, the buildup of these skin cells result in excess oil and clogged pores, which lead to blemishes and acne.  Exfoliating your skin on a regular basis can improve the results of your skincare routine and help to rejuvenate your skin. So, if you want to look fresh and healthy, exfoliation is an integral part of your skincare and microdermabrasion is the best at exfoliation and bringing new life to your complexion.

What Does It Feel Like?

The treatment, which is scheduled for an hour to an hour and a half, is painless and feels like a gentle vacuum. You may experience mild tightening, warmth, and/or tingling after the treatment. The moisture of any topical infusions will leave your skin feeling cool and refreshed while the exfoliation process renders the skin smooth to the touch. You’ll leave with glowing skin that feels soft and supple.
