I would say that every bride wants to shine on their big day. And for your makeup to look good, your skin needs to be in top shape. I have heard a lot about Microdermabrasion which is a mechanical exfoliation that is performed by passing a hand held device that uses a highly controlled flow of fine, medical grade crystals over the skin. These crystals which are delivered at high velocity onto the skin surface are immediately vacuumed away, taking the top-most layer of dead skin cells with it. This is a type of skin exfoliating which improves the tone and texture of the skin and reveals the newer, more vibrant skin below. Once the dead and damaged skin cells are removed, skin immediately feels and looks smoother, fresher, healthier and more youthful. Microdermabrasion can be good for treating:-
- Shallow Acne scarring
- Blackheads & blocked pores
- Sun damaged skin
- Dull or patchy skin
- Reducing and smoothing fine lines & wrinkles, producing a smoother, more rejuvenated skin.
I went along to Clinic 178 in Wallsend to experience microdermabrasion for myself. After a very thorough consultation about my health and wellbeing, I was taken through to one of the treatment rooms where I lay down and got comfy. I was told that the procedure can be a little uncomfortable and to say if I needed a break.
I actually really enjoyed the treatment. At no point was I uncomfortable, never mind in any pain. I found the suction of the machine quite relaxing. The treatment took about 20 minuted then a vitamin E cream was massaged into my face, again a very relaxing experience.
After the treatment I noticed that my skin was much brighter, softer and the blackheads on my nose had almost vanished. It is recommended that you have 3 treatments to see the full benefit of microdermabrasion and I know I will definitely be returning for more.
