What a Microdermabrasion and Vitamin C Peel
A microdermabrasion is a treatment that involves exfoliation of the first layer of skin. Our skin is made of two main layers, the dermis and the epidermis. The outermost layer, the epidermis, is made of two main layers. The outermost layer of the epidermis is the stratum corneum. This layer of skin consists mostly of mature skin cells that will slough off as skin emerges from beneath. A microdermabrasion removes the outermost layer of skin to reveal newly maturing skin underneath. This process, known as exfoliation, is great for a number of reasons. It decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduces the appearance of acne, and brightens overall skin tone. A Vitamin C peel also exfoliates the top layer of skin, but does o chemically, not mechanically. Our C Peel utilizes ascorbic acid to brighten and heal damaged skin. Vitamin rejuvenates skin cells and helps to tighten and brighten skin.
How is it Used
Microdermabrasion and C Peels go well together as a combined treatment. The Microderm exfoliates the top layer of skin to rid it of superficial skin imperfections. A C Peel penetrates deep into skin cells to revitalize and heal the cells. It may seem a bit redundant to have two treatments that exfoliate, but there is a great reason for this. The microderm exfoliates the top layer of skin, and allows for the vitamin C to penetrate deep into skin cells. This helps heal and brighten overall skin tone as well as build collagen to reveal young, fresh skin. This combination treatments is great for anyone with sun damaged skin or acne scars.
