The first time you notice that lines and wrinkles are beginning to form on your face, it can be disheartening. For many people, it can almost lead to a state of panic. This can be especially the case if you notice them and you feel that you are still too young for this to be happening. If you are in a situation like this, you might want to look into microdermabrasion. This is a safe and gentle treatment at our med spa in San Antonio that can help you maintain that youthful appearance, including getting rid of those fine lines and wrinkles.
Microdermabrasion has an exfoliating effect that will rejuvenate the skin, making it look smoother and younger. This non-invasive treatment is effective for several reasons. It will remove any dead skin cells and other debris, giving the skin a new level of smoothness. Any pores that may have been clogged will be unclogged. Likewise, enlarged pores can become smaller from the therapy. The skin will have an overall more even texture and tone, making it look younger. There will be some immediate tightening of the skin as well. This will help to reverse those fine lines and wrinkles that almost sent you into a state of panic whenever you first saw them.
Microdermabrasion can help with lines and wrinkles in another way also. It can help to stimulate the growth of collagen in the skin. This is a substance that helps tissue to stick together and gives it fullness. The body naturally produces it in the layer of the skin called the dermis. It is the one beneath the epidermis, or outer layer. However, as you start to age, less collagen will be produced in the skin. This takes away some of its fullness and causes it to sag, leading to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. By restoring collagen to higher levels, the skin will regain some of its tightness and the lines and wrinkles will disappear.
If you are considering microdermabrasion, you should not get it confused with dermabrasion, which is much more aggressive. Dermabrasion is when a harsh device is used to basically sand away the outer layer of the skin. As a result, there is much more discomfort and a period of downtime necessary for recovery. Microdermabrasion is much gentler. Our specialist at Spa Black in San Antonio can explain to you in more detail how it can be used to reduce lines and wrinkles on your skin.
