For most people, trying to find the right skin care products for their needs is like trying to find a needle in a haystack…without knowing what a needle looks like. At Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, it’s our goal to not only offer the professional treatments that can help you have the best skin of your life, but to also help you better understand your own skin and how you can keep it looking healthy and beautiful. As part of this mission, our experienced staff is choosing one skin care product each month to highlight, and this November, laser specialist Christine has chosen Revision® Finishing Touch Microdermabrasion Scrub.
This product provides a crucial step in any skin care routine: exfoliation. While using a gentle cleanser twice per day is important, exfoliation offers a deeper clean by buffing away dead skin cells, oils, dirt, and other irritants that hold back your skin. The result is smoother, softer skin which is less likely to develop acne or a dull complexion.
How does Revision® Finishing Touch Microdermabrasion Scrub work?
There is no shortage of exfoliation products on the market, but the key to this one’s success is in the unique ingredients. The combination of natural Polynesian Black Sand and ultrafine Pumice effectively clear away debris from the skin’s surface, while other ingredients like volcanic sand and shea butter nourish and hydrate the refreshed skin.
It’s important to note that exfoliation should not be done every day, as this can deplete your skin of vital nutrients and ultimately do more harm than good. As Christine explains, “You want to avoid using this product excessively for risk of breaking the pH balance of the skin, so it should be used twice per week at the most.”
Who can use Revision®’s Finishing Touch Microdermabrasion Scrub?
Nearly everyone can benefit from regular exfoliation, and this product is specifically ideal for people with normal, combination, oily, or mature skin types. As Christine explains, it’s particularly helpful for patients who are prone to acne due to oily skin and clogged pores. These issues can affect far more people than the stereotypical teenage acne patient, so the best way to address acne is often a combination of a carefully tailored skin care regimen and regular SilkPeel® microdermabrasion treatments, facials, or other treatments designed for acne control.
We hate to break it to you, but no skin care plan is one-size-fits-all. Revision®’s Finishing Touch Microdermabrasion Scrub can be a highly successful product for many patients, but it’s only one piece of the puzzle. To get the best possible results, you need to pair it with the right cleanser, the right moisturizer, and other products that fit your skin’s needs.
