Skin is the largest and fastest growing organ of the human body. It shares the first signs and conditions of our health, internally and externally. For example, dark circles, skin break out, and numerous certain things can appear as an absence of good health.
Skin care is the first and most important defense against aging, acne, even other conditions, including those that result in autoimmune skin reactions. As long as you become familiar with your own skin, by taking care of it, surprises should less likely occur or become manageable.
Most facial treatments involve microdermabrasion, which is known to be a very effective exfoliation process. It helps remove dead skin cells by buffing it sucking it out in a vacuum-like fashion. This makes exfoliation much more accurate than those done at home.
A good exfoliation makes way for newer, healthier skin cells. After all, bacteria, blemishes, brown spots, and other unpleasant skin issues can appear when pores are dirty and clogged.
How Light Therapy Improves a Microdermabrasion Treatment
Altair Instruments is known for the gentle effects of their wands and microdermabrasion machines. However, there are rare occasions when a person’s skin may be more sensitive than most. This means a possibility of redness and sometimes irritation can occur.
There are 2 major reasons light therapy should follow a microdermabrasion:
- Reduce redness or irritation – redness after a microdermabrasion can appear right away or sometimes an hour or more after the treatment. Light therapy can help reduce any chances an irritation can occur.
Green light therapy is known to be very effective for any signs of inflammation and blue light is known to be a great antibacterial.
Blue light therapy is also very common for acne treatments. As mentioned, it is a great antibacterial, which means it creates a very uncomfortable environment for bacteria to grow and reduces the chances of its future growth.
- Collagen boost – red light therapy is very common for anti-aging treatments due to its well known rejuvenation effects. After a microdermabrasion, cells are immediately triggered to begin its regeneration process.
Many Estheticians, like Tru Skin Rituals who have both the NewApeel® by Altair Instruments and VersaClear® by Theralight, Inc. says their clients (especially those who visit for acne treatments) notice a difference of a longer remission period after a light therapy treatment than ones without it.
