Many people walk around each day uncomfortable in their own skin. With age, daily life, and exposure to the sun, our skin starts to change and this can lead to unwanted blemishes, scars, and more. Vibradermabrasion is a treatment to help improve skin quality and help you feel better about your appearance overall. At Bella Tu MedSpa in Nyack, NY we don’t only provide skin treatments: we provide solutions. We’ll happily work with you to settle on the right treatment to help you reach your skin goals.
What Is Vibradermabrasion?
This treatment involves applying a textured paddle to the outside of your skin to remove the outermost layer of skin using crystals. Trained professionals perform this on you with the goal of removing dead skin, acne scars, pigmentation, and dull skin.
Ideally, the ultimate goal is to improve the quality of skin overall and to rejuvenate the way you feel about your skin. Once the outer layer of skin is removed then we can apply various exfoliants and antioxidants. They can now deeply penetrate into your skin providing added moisture and vitamins.
Vibradermabrasion does not irritate the skin or cause any adverse side effects like some other treatments. It’s safe for people of all skin types and no matter what issues you’re dealing with when you come in, we’ll work with you to determine the best course of action for your skin goals.
Who Should Get It?
The ideal candidate for this treatment might notice things about their skin that they didn’t before. They might notice wrinkles, sagging, acne scars, or discoloration of the skin. This can make you feel concerned or even depressed if the problem progresses far enough.
Everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin, so there aren’t really any set requirements to receive this treatment. If you feel you need it, then we’ll be happy to perform it for you. Of course, there are situations where we may not be able to help with this treatment but we can happily recommend something else if that is the case.
Does It Hurt?
A stainless steel paddle vibrates against the skin while we treat the affected area. It removes the outer layer of skin, oil, and debris without causing any pain or discomfort. It feels as if something is vibrating against your face and this stimulates the skin and helps to produce more collagen.
Many people confuse this treatment with other options that buff the skin or scrape it. Those can cause your skin to feel irritated so that’s not what we’re trying to do. We want your skin to feel exfoliated and fresh when the treatment is over and that’s the joy of vibradermabrasion.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion uses a slightly abrasive tool to remove the outer layer of skin. Instead of simply vibrating against the skin like vibradermabrasion, now it’s gently scraping the skin to remove the thick and uneven section. That doesn’t mean that one is better than the other, but this treatment is more likely to cause irritation.
Microdermabrasion is used to treat discoloration, sun damage, stretch marks, and scars. It can reduce their appearance, exfoliate the skin, and help treat acne scars. It will also add more collagen to the skin which gives it that flexible, fresh, and youthful appearance that everyone looks for.
Vibradermabrasion vs Microdermabrasion
The goal of both these treatments is the same, but they have some differences in how they’re performed. As mentioned, microdermabrasion scrapes the skin whereas vibradermabrasion buffs it. They’re both great for removing dead skin and reducing the appearance of various blemishes.
The reason we prefer one over the other is because of the risk of skin irritation. We feel that Vibradermabrasion does a well enough job at improving skin quality without having to scrape the skin and risk irritating it further. We’re able to comfortably perform this treatment, exfoliate the skin, and make our patients feel much better about themselves.
How Often Should You Get Treatment?
A typical session can last between 10-40 minutes and can treat various parts of the body where you might feel uncomfortable about your skin. It’s recommended that you undergo multiple sessions to achieve the best results but some people don’t require as many. It really depends on the individual.
When you come in for your initial consultation, we’ll work with you, identify the problem areas, and work out an action plan that helps you reach your goals. We’ll space out treatments and work around your schedule to ensure you’re able to make your appointments but also achieve the results you want. It’s important that you also receive touch-up sessions every few months.
