Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure that exfoliates your skin, using fine crystals, along with a controlled vacuum device, without the application of incisions.
Microdermabrasion instantly leaves your skin with considerably improved texture and softness, with fewer imperfections, such as wrinkles or acne scars. Minor wrinkles can be diminished with the production of new collagen. Your skin tone will be improved, leaving you looking and feeling more radiant and rejuvenated.
Microdermabrasion can be used to rejuvenate skin of any type. Those seeking to reduce minor flaws or wrinkles without downtime are encouraged to consider microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion can also be helpful in reducing the appearance of scaring caused by acne or previous medical procedures.
About the procedure
First, your skin is thoroughly cleansed and toned. This is followed up with a smooth stream of aluminum oxide crystals, which are poured over sections of the face. The crystals lightly polish away old, dead skin cells, which the vacuum then picks up with light, gentle suction. Microdermabrasion advocates the development of new skin cells, through the action of stimulating fibroblasts, which are the cells within your tissue that alerts the body to produce collagen and elastin.
You will see an immediate difference in the overall look and feel of your skin after your microdermabrasion treatment. However, if you wish to reach optimum results, it is recommended that you come in for multiple treatments over the course of several weeks. The exact number of microdermabrasion treatments need is based on the individual patient and the condition of his or her skin. On average, you can expect anything from five to six treatments.
Is microdermabrasion safe?
Microdermabrasion is a very commonplace procedure. Some patients may experience some minor redness or discomfort very much like how a sunburn might feel, after the microdermabrasion treatment—however, a soothing, calming mask is applied following microdermabrasion to help reduce sensitivity.
