I booked a little mini spa day at Alba Organic Beauty Studio because I heard that they have a bunch of new services and products that I wanted to try out. They now have microdermabrasion, dermaplaning and a whole new line of organic peels for facials -- like a Fruit Peel, Botanical peel, and a Yogurt Power Peel.
I opted for the Microdermabrasion because I felt like my skin was looking dull after summer - I wanted to slough it all off and feel fresh faces for fall. A Microdermabrasion is a facial procedure that uses manual exfoliation to remove the outer layer of skin. This process works in a series to achieve the best results -- so, Benny my esthetician, cleaned, used the microdermabrasion machine, then extracted, then cleaned some more, then moisturized and gave me the most relaxing head, hand and neck massage ever.
Overall, Microdermabrasion reduces the appearance of wrinkles, removes acne scars, clears up blackheads, minimizes the size of the pores, reduces sun damage, and evens out your skin tone. It also helps to boost collagen production to provide firming and toning to your complexion!
It's not painful at all, very relaxing. And you know when you get it at Alba, that it's going to be all organic and good for you! Highly recommended!
