Often, clients will complain about dry skin. What many don't know is that they have a buildup of dead skin cells that is creating a barrier between their absorbent skin and moisturizer. Microdermabrasion sweeps away dead skin that dulls your complexion and keeps out the moisture. The treatment is fast, safe and takes only minutes out of your day. You can see why this is the most popular service at the Blue Water Day Spa.

We all want younger looking skin. What so many people don't know is that new skin is growing beneath the dead cells, and all it needs is to be revealed. Microdermabrasion is one of the latest advancements in skin care and restoration, and is a great solution to many skin issues. While it used to involve blasting tiny crystals toward the surface of the skin, it now implements a diamond tip to minimize pain and irritation. Erase sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars as fresh new skin is gently revealed.

As a form of exfoliation, microdermabrasion helps you shed dead cells from the superficial layer of your skin. It also promotes the growth of new skin cells to give you a younger looking complexion. The following are just a few of the issues that microdermabrasion can help:

Age spots • Scarring • Sun damage • Acne • Stretch marks • Fine lines in the skin • Blemishes

If you've thought of microdermabrasion as something only the rich and famous could afford, understand that this treatments is now very mainstream and quite affordable. In fact, many clients are opting for this safe and effective service in lieu of a chemical peel, face lift, Botox or plastic surgery. Men, like women, are also discovering the benefits of microdermabrasion.

Human skin has two primary layers, the outer one being the epidermis, and the inner one called, simply, dermis. The epidermis has an outer layer of its own, and that layer is mostly dead skin cells. Beneath them, younger cells are constantly maturing. This most outer layer is referred to as the stratum corneum, and it functions as a barrier separating the younger skin from all but the smallest things from the outside world.

Moisturizing elements, for the most part, cannot permeate the stratum corneum of the epidermis. Along with this buildup, discoloration, fine wrinkles, and more populate the layer of dead skin. Microdermabrasion does not go any deeper than the stratum corneum, but is strong enough to remove it, along with many minor imperfections. The process is not painful, and does not come close to the more sensitive dermis layer.
