Want Perfect Skin? Turn to this A-List-Approved Treatment

How celebrities manage to transform tired skin to a radiant one just in time for awards season has always been a mystery. When asked, however, stars are almost always hesitant to credit nothing else but “sleep and plenty of water” for their ethereal glow. For those of you who have tried downing eight glasses (or more!) of water to achieve supple skin, know that water alone doesn’t exactly result in flawless skin.

The truth is, stars achieve that gleaming complexion with microdermabrasion. For those who are looking to achieve that red-carpet glow, here are some things you need to know about this top skincare treatment A-listers swear by:

The Magic Microdermabrasion Wand

Microdermabrasion involves the use of a wand with tips made of microscopic diamonds to help the skin exfoliate. The aesthetician will drag this wand across your face, as its vacuum suction rids the skin of dead skin cells and excess oil.

While the process may sound intimidating, there’s no need to fear, as most users reported that the procedure didn’t feel as scratchy or rough as it seems. Some people experience some slight reddening of the skin, but a calming moisturizer and sunscreen should help reduce that reaction.

Renew Tired Skin, the Celebrity Way

Celebrity skin often takes a beating from sleepless nights and frequent heavy makeup. Stars look to regular exfoliation to renew tired skin and combat dull skin. Microdermabrasion also cleans old skin layers better than any regular exfoliating routine, creating a better, more active surface for makeup, anti-aging serums, and creams.

Celebrities usually book their procedure a week before a major event, but fortunately for those who wish to own flawless skin, microdermabrasion in NYC is not anymore reserved for celebrities but a procedure that’s readily available for anyone who wants to own healthy-looking, glowing skin. Dr. Leslie Gerstman can help you find out if a microdermabrasion treatment is your best choice.
