Taking care of your skin is a crucial aspect of maintaining a radiant and youthful complexion. Besides a great skincare routine, facials is another way to add to your skincare arsenal. Among the myriad of facial treatments available, three stand out as my personal favorites– Dermaplaning, Microneedling, and Microdermabrasion.
Dermaplaning has gained immense popularity for its ability to deliver results with minimal downtime. This non-invasive exfoliation technique involves the use of a blade to gently scrape away the top layer of dead skin and "peach fuzz." The result is a smoother complexion that allows skincare products to penetrate more effectively, and allows makeup to go on more smoothly. Dermaplaning leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft. Doing this every 3-4 weeks is enough, and if you are careful you can do this at home.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is an amazing facial treatment that stimulates the skin's natural healing process. During the procedure, tiny needles create micro-injuries in the skin, triggering collagen and elastin production. This boost in collagen helps to improve skin texture (including scars), reduce fine lines, and minimize the appearance of your pores. Microneedling is really a good “workout” for the skin, and will help with your overall complexion over time. This treatment is recommended every 4-6 weeks.
Microdermabrasion is a classic facial treatment that has stood the test of time for its effectiveness in revitalizing the skin. This exfoliation method uses a device to gently sand away the outer layer of dead skin, revealing a smoother and more youthful complexion. Microdermabrasion is particularly beneficial for treating acne scars, sun damage, and uneven skin tone. The procedure not only enhances the texture of the skin but also promotes increased circulation, leaving you with a refreshed and revitalized appearance. And who wouldn’t want that? Only do this about once a month.
Indulging in regular facials is a luxurious and effective way to maintain the health and beauty of your skin. Incorporating even one of these three into your routine will help in your skins’ overall revitalization. Have fun discovering!
