How Can Microdermabrasion Improve Your Skin?

Have you heard of microdermabrasion? This aesthetic treatment was invented in the mid-80s and can make significant improvements to your skin. Microdermabrasion is a practical and minimally invasive treatment option for many patients seeking a brighter, smoother complexion.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

During microdermabrasion, the diamond tip wand is used to remove the topmost layer of the skin. It gently exfoliates the skin with natural diamond chips, simultaneously vacuuming away the dead skin cells. This process is sterile and controlled to protect your skin. 

The microdermabrasion process stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells. As healthy cells replace the dead or damaged skin cells removed from the topmost layer, the look and feel of the skin will noticeably improve.

Get Beautiful Lip with a Lip Flip

Do you dream of youthful, rejuvenated lips? In that case, achieving stunning lips may be easier than you ever imagined with the help of the lip flip treatment. This non-surgical treatment utilizes Botox to enhance the appearance of the lips and give you a boost of confidence.

How Does the Lip Flip Work?

During the lip flip treatment, Botox is injected into the cupid’s bow of the lip and the corners of the mouth. Botox contains the active ingredient Botulinum toxin type A, which is a neurotoxin that stops muscle contractions. When it’s used to target the lip area in a lip flip, it relaxes the muscles around the lips. This makes the part of the upper lip that’s inside of the mouth turn up and out, reducing the appearance of vertical lip lines.

Does Microneedling Help With a Sagging Neck?

As we age, the skin becomes less elastic due to reduced collagen and elastin production. This is part of the natural aging process, but it causes the skin to sag, contributing to an aged appearance. In addition to the skin on the face, the skin on the neck can sag with age. This can often cause  a “turkey neck” when the skin on the neck appears loose and droops. 

If you’re experiencing loose skin on the neck, you may want to consider RF microneedling, called Morpheus8, from Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness. This advanced treatment option has shown exceptional results for sagging skin, giving patients a tighter, more lifted appearance.

Speed Up The Healing Process

At Hermann Wellness, we utilize the advanced Bellus microneedling system for its ability to promote healing with few (if any) side effects. We also offer Morpheus8, a cutting-edge treatment that combines microneedling with fractionated radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin.
