Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that removes the damaged top layers of skin, which will improve the texture and quality of the skin and trigger the growth of new, youthful-looking skin.
Microdermabrasion is perfect for reducing fine lines and wrinkles and can also help fade age spots or hyperpigmentation, as well as any minor scarring or acne. By removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, microdermabrasion can make your complexion look brighter and fresher, and if you have uneven skin tone, the treatment will help create a more even tone.
Microdermabrasion can eliminate common skin problems such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- uneven pigmentation
- clogged pores
- enlarged pores
- sun damaged skin
- age spots
- uneven skin texture
- Dry Skin
- post acne scars
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that exfoliates the skin by removing the top layer. Typically, approximately six treatments spaced four weeks apart are needed for excellent results.
People often ask questions about microdermabrasion treatment;
How does this treatment work?
After cleansing the skin to remove any oil or dirt, a light mist of crystals will gently and painlessly remove dull, dead cells from the top layer of skin. A vacuum suction simultaneously removes crystals and dead, dull cells, resulting in polished, smooth, glowing skin.
Does microdermabrasion work on wrinkles?
Microdermabrasion works on fine wrinkles. It unifies the skin texture through the abrasion of the upper layer of the skin. The effect is a reduction or even total elimination of superficial wrinkles.
Can it help treat scars?
The treatment will even out skin texture and help remove superficial scars by removing the top layer of skin; however, deeper scars will require more invasive non-surgical techniques, such as deep chemical peels or laser resurfacing.
How safe is microdermabrasion if you have eczema?
You should not use this treatment if you suffer from eczema, as the procedure is somewhat abrasive and can worsen this condition. This applies if you are also using microdermabrasion at home, despite its mild effect.
Can you do this treatment if you have rosacea?
No. The exfoliation process will worsen the redness, itching, and flaking symptoms of rosacea. However, there are other cosmetic treatments available for rosacea.
Is the treatment painful?
There is no pain during a microdermabrasion treatment, although you may feel a slight prickling or tingling sensation when the crystals make contact with your skin. There will be a slight redness after the procedure for about twenty-four hours.
Microdermabrasion takes no more than twenty to thirty minutes and can be used successfully on the face, as well as the body, neck, chest, back, and hands. One of the main advantages is that it only removes the top layer of skin, which is why it is considered the least invasive cosmetic procedure. You do not need anesthesia and you have almost no downtime after treatment. All skin types can receive this treatment without risk or side effects.
