Procedures that Prove Beauty is Only Skin Deep

The quest for beautiful skin is constant for many women around the world. They spend lots of money sampling any techniques that they believe will help them to achieve skin that makes them look youthful and healthy.

As a result there are thousands of creams, lotions, potions and techniques sold.  Some of these treatments have been introduced by companies and individuals who know very little about the science of skin care. Their treatments are merely marketing hype usually sold in pretty packaging while making impossible claims.

Anyone interested in getting good results from a treatment should steer away from this group because in addition to potentially purchasing treatments that don’t work, there’s also the real possibility that some of these treatments might permanently damage the skin.

There are other more reputable treatments that have been created by very experienced skin care doctors and scientists who have dedicated years to develop them. This group knows that there is great financial reward in providing legitimate skin care treatments to women. The positive word of mouth that occurs when a woman’s skin improves, can create hysteria for that treatment, and often does.

Here are a few of those doctor and scientist developed treatments that give great results and have very positive word of mouth.


Microdermabrasion has become a very sought after wrinkles treatment. The procedure uses a small spinning tool and fine abrasive crystals that are placed on the targeted area of the face, neck or hands. The tool comes in contact with the abrasive crystals and gently exfoliates the upper layers of the skin. The removal of these dull and often damaged layers of skin will release collagen which is a substance that promotes the growth of healthy and glowing skin.

Microdermabrasion is usually performed over several sessions with each going over the targeted area to remove a slightly deeper layer of skin. The treatment is one of the best for patients with fine lines, uneven pigmentation or clogged pores. It can also be useful for light acne scars, slight skin defects and has become a primary wrinkles treatment.

Micro needling

A newer procedure that continues to grow in popularity uses the body’s own healing processes to rejuvenate the skin and make it glow. Micro needling sometimes called Skin Needling has become very popular for removing fine lines, acne scars, rough skin and wrinkles on the face and neck. The treatment uses a sterile instrument that has dozens of fine needles that are used to poke tiny holes into the targeted area on the skin. This upper level skin damage triggers the skin’s natural healing process to begin and leads to clearer and more healthy looking skin. The process typically takes several sessions for it to be most effective and each session only lasts for several minutes. But the result is skin that gets clearer and smoother over the sessions.

Both microdermabrasion and micro needling are cost effective clinic solutions that are proven to work at giving patients better looking and feeling skin. The difference in the treatments is really based on your specific preference. One might work better for you based on your skin type of specific issues. Speak with a reputable professional clinic that offers both treatments to help you decide which one to try.
