The Importance of Exfoliating

Exfoliating is thought of by most people as a purely cosmetic skin treatment. It certainly helps to brighten your complexion by polishing the outer layer of the skin. However, its benefits go beyond mere aesthetics. Regularly exfoliating not only helps make your skin healthier, it helps it more fully absorb many topical skin care products.

What is Exfoliation?
Skin exfoliating is a simple and safe process involving the removal of the outer layer of the skin. Although you may not be aware of it, this skin layer is not really living tissue. Instead, it is comprised of non-living substances like dead skin cells and oils. This debris can really pile up on the surface of your skin, making it appear dull and tired. Exfoliating can be easily accomplished at home with the ZO® Exfoliating Cleanser, ZO® Exfoliating Polish, or ZO® Dual Action Scrub, all of which can be purchased at Ästhetik RX in Bowmanville, Ontario.

A skin exfoliation can also occur mechanically using a special device that sprays microscopic particles onto the skin. These particles act as tiny, scrubbing abrasives that are very gentle on your skin. This treatment has the effect of breaking up the molecular bonds holding dead skin cells together. All of this material is then scooped up using a secondary device.

What Are the Benefits of Exfoliating?
The main benefit of exfoliating is its ability to brighten your complexion by removing inorganic matter that has accumulated on the surface of your skin. An additional benefit is that skin care products will penetrate more completely after this material is removed by exfoliating because it acts as a barrier to their absorption. Any topical skincare product applied to your skin after an exfoliating treatment will penetrate much more deeply, greatly amplifying the benefits of serums, lotions, creams, and ointments.

Clients about Ästhetik Rx

  • I went for a consultation at Asthetik Rx. I have always wanted Botox to erase some lines on my forehead but was always very nervous. The place is very clean and modern. The Staff was very knowledgeable and explained the procedure from start to finish, and also answered all my questions and concerns. The results were amazing and the price didn’t break the bank either. Excellent place!
