We all do our best to avoid the sun, from adding a high powered SPF to our morning routine to donning wide-brimmed hats and oversized glasses. Even in spite of our best efforts, dark spots, or hyperpigmentation can occur. If you are noticing that you have a new dark spot, or one that you’ve noticed before has gotten darker, MacMed Spa is here to help!
Age spots really are aging
Hyperpigmentation, whether on your face or hands, can make you appear older than you actually are. If you utilize concealer and foundation to cover up these spots it may not work as effectively as you would like. In fact, many women look older when they wear heavy makeup such as foundation, concealer, and powder. Rather than trying to hide your age spots, wouldn’t it be easier to just get rid of them?
Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective way to diminish age spots
If you’ve never experienced microdermabrasion before, now is the perfect time to give this effective procedure a try! Our microdermabrasion technicians are highly skilled in this treatment procedure and will review all of your problem areas with you prior to your facial. This technique gently sloughs away the dead skin cells that become lodged on your face and help to reveal the newer skin underneath. In fact, age spots are one of the most popular reasons that our clients opt for a microdermabrasion treatment with their facial.
Short recovery times and virtually painless
While you will need to make a concerted effort to avoid the sun following your procedure, your recovery time will be short. You may experience a little bit of redness or peeling, but these effects will be gone before you know it! Because microdermabrasion removes that top layer of dead skin cells, the skin beneath is quite fragile and must be protected from sun exposure! Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn and don a stylish wide-brimmed hat for a few days following your appointment!
If you would like to stop relying on heavy makeup to hide your pigmentation irregularities, microdermabrasion is an easy and effective choice. In addition to helping to diminish age spots this treatment technique will also help to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
