Exfoliation is Your Friend
- Posted on: Sep 30 2020
Everyone is continually searching for the youngest, freshest skin. Facials, chemical peels, dermabrasion, ablative lasers — the goal is to get rid of the old, tired, outer layer of your skin. And, thanks to the high-altitude sun exposure we all get plenty of here in Utah, we have more need because our skin gets beat up even more.
Ah, if we could only go down to Zion National Park, climb up to the top of Angel’s Landing, lie in the sun and shed our skin just like some boa constrictor. Now, that would be some effective exfoliation!
Alas, us homo sapiens don’t have that skill. Fortunately, Spa Vitoria offers the next best thing — microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion removes that layer of dead skin cells, revealing the happier, healthier skin beneath. This non-invasive, easy-to-take treatment can really improve your skin.
What is microdermabrasion?
In microdermabrasion, a handpiece sprays tiny aluminum oxide or sodium chloride crystals onto your surface skin. At the same time, the handpiece includes suction to remove the crystals, dead skin cells, dirt, and other items separated by the treatment.
The degree of exfoliation depends on the amount of suction employed and the number of passes made.
A microdermabrasion session takes just 20-30 minutes. And you’ll be amazed at how your skin’s tone and texture improve by just removing that outermost layer of skin.
