Everyone wants to have youthful, radiant looking skin and one way to achieve that is by opting for skin care treatments such as microdermabrasion and hydrodermabrasion in our penrith salon. These treatments have become extremely popular over at Penrith because it works by exfoliating your skin and removing dead skin cells to reveal healthier, younger-looking skin. The only difference is how they exfoliate your skin which we’ll talk about in detail down below.
What is Microdermabrasion and how does it work?
Microdermabrasion is a skin care procedure that exfoliates your skin by spraying microcrystals. This removes the thick outer layer of your skin and is mainly used to revitalize your look by lessening the appearance of wrinkles and reducing fine lines caused by aging. Another benefit of opting for microdermabrasion is that it helps thicken your facial skin’s collagen which in turn results in a youthful-looking complexion.
Here are the benefits of opting for Microdermabrasion in Penrith
- Rejuvenated appearance
- Minimizes wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduce acne spots and scars
- Treat sun-damaged skin
The only downside to microdermabrasion is that patients will sometimes experience redness or itchiness on their skin after the procedure. Since it uses microcrystals, it can sometimes irritate the patient’s skin. It’s an uncommon side-effect but still do keep that in mind. Dryness can also be experienced but don’t worry, these won’t last long and usually takes only a few hours before it goes away.
What about Hydrodermabrasion? How does it work?
A new and popular alternative over microdermabrasion is hydrodermabrasion. It’s a much better skin treatment procedure since it only uses water and oxygen to effectively cleanse and remove dead skin cells to promote new, healthy skin. Another advantage of hydrodermabrasion is that it’s pain free and you’re less likely to experience redness, itching or dryness because it doesn’t use abrasive microcrystals. People at Penrith are opting for this skin treatment instead due to the fact that it hydrates your skin and makes it look smoother and firmer.
Here are the benefits of opting for Hydrodermabrasion in Penrith
- Smoother, firmer and more hydrated skin
- Helps you achieve a more revitalized look
- Tightens your pores
- Drastically improves aging, tired facial skin
So, which treatment is right for you?
Both skin care treatments are a great way to exfoliate your skin and remove unwanted dead skin cells. They differ in procedure but the results are comparable on their own. People at Penrith prefer opting for hydrodermabrasion since it provides a more hydrated, rejuvenated look and it doesn’t come with any lingering side effects after the procedure is done.
