MICRODERMABRASION AMAZÔNICO FACIAL (Diamond)
Microdermabrasion is one of the more recent skin-care techniques to have crossed over from Hollywood to the mainstream. It's being advanced as an "instant facelift" -- an effective alternative to costlier and more invasive procedures like plastic surgery, chemical peels and Botox injections.
Your skin is made up of two main layers, the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is the layer closest to the outside world. Microdermabrasion targets the epidermis (and not the dermis), it is more accurate to call it micro-epi-dermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of tiny diamond grains that buff away the surface layer of skin. All of the action in microdermabrasion takes place at the stratum corneum, which is the topmost layer of the epidermis skin. The stratum corneum mostly acts as a barrier between the outside world and the lower skin layers. When you put lotions or creams on your skin, some of the moisture passes through the stratum corneum, but not all of it. This layer is home to many minor skin imperfections like fine wrinkle lines and blemishes. The process removes or breaks up the stratum corneum so that the body can replace it with new and healthy skin cells, and your skin begins to look and feel smoother. Some of the skin's visible imperfections, like sun damage, blemishes and fine lines, are removed. Also medicinal creams and lotions are more effective after this procedure because more of their active ingredients and moisture can find their way down to the lower layers of skin.
You will receive a specialised tool for the procedure. The technician will steadily move a diamond-tipped wand over the targeted area, applying even and steady pressure to remove the stratum corneum without affecting the lower skin layers. Repeated microdermabrasion treatment at regular intervals may influence the way the lower layers of skin grow, also removing deeper blemishes over time.
