You’ve probably heard of microdermabrasion–the latest Hollywood skin care trend to hit the mainstream market.  Microdermabrasion has been dubbed “an instant facelift.”  The process diminishes the appearance of blemishes and fine lines and unclogs pores by buffing away the top layer of skin.

Enter Nioxin Scalp Renew…an in-salon scalp Dermabrasion Service (or the facial for your scalp)!

Why, might you ask, would you want a facial for your scalp???  I mean, no one really sees your scalp (except for you, you brave shaved-headed men).  BUT, strong, healthy hair begins below the surface of the scalp, and new hair strands can’t grow out of clogged hair follicles. 

Nioxin Scalp Renew is just like microdermabrasion for your scalp–it removes build-up from products and the environment on your scalp and unclogs hair follicles.   The process allows younger skin cells to surface and can increase cell renewal by almost 40%.  Immediately after the process you’ll notice that your scalp is squeaky clean and that your hair is more shiny and bouncy.

This is what Nioxin has to say about the ingredients in their product:

“The exfoliants in the product are found in the beta hydroxy acid known as salicylic acid, which is derived from willow bark.  Beta hydroxy acid is lipid (oil) soluble, so it can easily penetrate the follicle pore and exfoliate the build up of dead skin cells from inside.

Alpha hydroxy acids utilize exfoliants derived from fruit and milk sugars such as glycolic acid, produced from sugar cane and lactic acid, produced from milk. Alpha hydroxy acids are water soluble only and are used to concentrate on thickened, sun/photodamaged skin, lifting the dead cells from the epidermis making room for regrowth of new skin.

Enzymatic exfoliants help dissolve dead skin cells and other follicle-clogging debris and contain botanical enzymes such as Aloe Vera and trimethylglycine that help increase skin moisturization, hydration and resilience.”

This natural anti-aging treatment is the first of its kind in the hair industry, and the application process is quick and easy.  Your stylist will divide your hair in to sections and apply the product all over your head.  Then he or she will massage the product in to your scalp, and you will feel a tingling, cooling sensation.  The processing time is about ten minutes, and then your stylist will shampoo and style your hair as usual.  Repeated treatments will result in less hair breakage and thicker, stronger, shinier hair.

To get the maximum benefits, Nioxin recommends that clients get the in-salon treatment once every 30-45 days to accelerate the removal of stubborn scalp and follicle debris, skin cell build-up, and excessive oil.

So indulge your scalp!!  You put your scalp through a lot, and it deserves to be pampered…
