The Ultimate Guide to Microdermabrasion in Costa Rica

Is your face looking dull and aged? Microdermabrasion in Costa Rica can turn back the clock. This non-invasive treatment can give your face its glow back, remove fine lines and blemishes and make your skin softer and smoother. And if you go to Costa Rica for a holiday, then you should definitely indulge yourself by getting this done at an affordable cost.

This treatment uses a special device to spray microcrystals on your face and then vacuum them. As the debris is cleared from your face, it also removes blackheads, dirt and both the actions also stimulate the skin so it becomes tighter.

Two kinds of devices may be used for microdermabrasion. One sprays fine crystals of different substances like aluminum oxide, magnesium oxide, sodium chloride or sodium bicarbonate to sand the skin and exfoliate it. Another device is actually a diamond-tipped wand that has the same effect.

Why consider microdermabrasion in Costa Rica?

Costa Rica sees hundreds and thousands of tourists annually from all over the globe and more particularly from the U.S. and Canada who come to see its many natural attractions. Of these, at least 50,000 are medical tourists, lured by its excellent medical facilities, well-trained doctors and reasonable prices for all kinds of cosmetic procedures and surgeries.

This country is located in Central America and borders both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. It is known for its many beaches and water sports in different areas. Because Costa Rica has many volcanoes (popular volcanoes to visit are Irazu, Poas, Arenal, Tenorio, Miravalles, Orosi and Turrialba) many of them active, it also has a rich soil. This has resulted in great biodiversity, high green cover and the country is known for its parks, forests and natural reserves. You can also check out UNESCO world heritage places like Cocos Island, Area de Conservación Guanacaste and La Amistad International Park that are huge parks and recreation grounds.

You can decide what kind of holiday you want as many of the attractions are in different parts of the country and then go to the nearest international airport of which the country has two. For example you can make the capital, San Jose, the base and then go to the Arenal Volcano and Hot Springs, the Tortuguero National Park, Manuel Antonio National Park, Irazu Volcano, La Selva Biological Reserve, which has UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status or go for an adventure tour on the Sarapiqui River, boat riding, hiking and taking an aerial tram ride. There are many combinations of tours and trips available or you can just check out the sites in the city.

This cosmetic treatment will not interfere with your holiday and will take minimal time as well. You can get it done on reaching or before leaving.

How long does microdermabrasion take and what is the recovery period?

Microdermabrasion can be used on the face, the neck, the back, shoulders and many areas that are visible. It has the same effect on all areas, removing blemishes and making the skin better. Depending on the number of areas you get done, the treatment can take between half an hour to an hour.

In case you have sensitive skin you may have mild redness and even some swelling but this will subside in a couple of hours. After treatment, you will be advised to use moisturizing products and you should do so, as the skin also becomes more receptive to creams and lotions. You should also use a sunscreen when going out in the sun.

Though one treatment will give you good results, if you have a series of treatments, the condition of your skin will show a significant improvement as the spots, scars and lines become soft and barely visible, if they do not disappear.
