It is a journey we all must take. Years roll by, and so too do the days of youth. Aging takes a toll on everyone, leaving many with scars, rough skin, and wrinkles. Years after acne breakouts, normal wear and tear, and harsh weather all take their toll on the human experience. Rough, aged skin doesn’t have to be the norm.
At Wax Spa, we are proud to provide a service that can help turn back the clock. Interested? Well, keep reading to understand the story of diamond microdermabrasion.
The roots of microdermabrasion stem back some 4000 years. Ancient Egyptian doctors are recorded to have used a type of sandpaper to remove the upper layers of the skin to rejuvenate and smooth scars and wrinkles. Thankfully, today we use a process that is much less frightening. Actual microdermabrasion as it is know today was created in Italy in 1985 by doctors Mattioli and Brutto.
The first machines created amazing results and quickly were put into production. By the middle of the 1990’s, their popularity exploded. Today, there are well over 150,000 microdermabrasion procedures performed each and every year.
Microdermabrasion at Wax Spa works by targeting fast-moving crystal flakes at the skin to gently exfoliate and remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. Simultaneously, the dead skin cells are suctioned away to leave smoother, more radiant skin. Taking the journey towards smoother, more beautiful skin doesn’t have to be painful.
Our experienced beauty professionals adjust vacuum pressure and treatment speed based on the sensitivity and tolerance of the skin. If you are curious as to what the treatment feels like, we can promise you it won’t be like sandpaper. Most people compare the feeling to a cat licking your skin. Trust us, it’s worth the feeling.
