Dermabrasion facials are a popular treatment method that can remove the signs of aging from the face. This type of facial uses the power of two water and oxygen sources in order to effectively exfoliate and soften the facial skin. It usually consists of exfoliating, cleansing or T-zone, intensive moisturizing, and hydrating the face. In addition, this type of facial can address various skin concerns, including sun sensitivity and acne.
A dermabrasion facial usually takes around thirty minutes to an hour and uses different techniques depending on the area of the face that needs to be treated. One technique can be used to treat the entire face while others can treat fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and blemishes on specific areas. The main goal is to remove the outer layers of skin in order to restore a more youthful appearance to the face.
The main source of moisture that is used in a dermabrasion facial is the use of a fine aluminum plate that rotates at a high rate. This plate is made of ceramic and as such, has a gentle exfoliating effect. The other source of moisture is the oil-based product lotions that are placed on the face. The oil that is used has a dual purpose as it hydrates the surface of the skin as well as remove the dead skin cells that have accumulated on the surface. After a while, the dead skin cells wash away as the result is younger looking and smooth, along with the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes.
