Skin is the largest organ in the body. The body naturally exfoliates the top layer of dead skin every three to four months. Microdemabrasion is a skin resurfacing treatment that gently exfoliates the top layer of dead skin. It is a non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedure which can be performed at home, in beauty salons, spas and medical or dermatological offices.
As you age the renewal process begins to slow down and your skin can become dull, not to mention the annual advancement of wrinkles. I use a home microdemabrasion treatment, exfoliating several times a month. Many of my friends use their home-based treatments several times a week. There are a number of home-based microdemabrasion treatments to select from; my preference is Susan Lucci's Youthful Essence microdemabrasion kit from http://www.youthfulessence.com/ specially designed to gently smooth away dead surface cells to reveal the silky soft skin beneath. I love the smell of this product and how it diminishes the fine lines and wrinkles on my face. Microdemabrasion can also refine enlarged pores and help to lessen age spots and since microdemabrasion only exfoliates the top layer of skin there are no risks. However if you have skin problems you should consult your health care practitioner before you try this treatment.
Regularly exfoliating your skin will improve texture and appearance, your face will be softer, smoother and younger looking and freckles, age spots and fine lines will diminish.
