Microdermabrasion in Cedar Rapids is within reach - this skincare treatment is targeted at physically exfoliating the skin. This exfoliation removes dry and dead skin cells from the outermost layer of the skin - the epidermis - to reveal softer, brighter, younger looking skin underneath. The different types of microdermabrasion include using a diamond tip or tiny crystals and a suction to take away the dead skin.
You won't have any visible peeling, and you'll notice a healthy glow, radiance, and tightening of the skin for a youthful appearance. Microdermabrasion coupled with other various in salon and at home treatments, can help with a variety of skin challenges such as acne scarring, wrinkles, and sun damage. Multiple treatments coupled with a high quality sun screen will improve your results.
At our Cedar Rapids salon, we utilize the crystal microdermabrasion technique. The machine delivers a high pressure stream of thousands of tiny crystals through a wand that we swipe over the skin. A small attached vacuum then sucks up all of the crystals and dead skin. We have a variety of crystal intensities to best match the level of exfoliation you're looking for.
Your skin will be mildly irritated after treatment, so we follow our microdermabrasion sessions with cooling and relaxing masks to calm the skin so you can confidently leave the salon. Because your skin will be sensitive after your treatment, it's very important to avoid sun exposure and to use a quality sunscreen to protect your skin. We'll help you navigate selecting the best sunscreen for your skin type and any at home treatments to help you reach your skincare goals.
