MICRODERMABRASION- WHAT IT IS AND HOW IT WORKS

Microdermabrasion is a skincare treatment that removes the  top layer of dead, dry skin cells through the use of a crystal or diamond tipped wand. As these tired cells are sloughed away, healthier, fresher skin is brought to the surface, allowing for a more youthful glow and sunnier complexion. While dead skin cells are sanded off with a specialized wand, a built in suctioning system absorbs this waste and makes discarding them easier and more hygienic.

 

Microdermabrasion is an attractive treatment for many because it has proven successful in the treatment of a wide variety of skin conditions and disorders, for all skin types and shades. With minimal risk of scarring, discoloration, and pain, it is no wonder that this is such a highly sought after treatment.

HOW MICRODERMABRASION BENEFITS YOUR SKIN

Because microdermabrasion is non invasive, treats only superficial layers of skin, and does not require chemicals or injections, it is generally pain free and requires no post- procedure down time. This skin care regimen is rather versatile too, as it is used to treat facial lines, scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, decreases pore size, and can adjust uneven skin tone and discoloration.

 

In addition to giving you a brighter complexion, microdermabrasion can also improve your circulation by stimulating the lymphatic system. By extension, this process enhances your skin’s health by improving blood flow and the cascade of oxygen and other nutrients your cells need. Microdermabrasion also allows your skin to better absorb skincare products and has been shown to be safer in the treatment of blotchy, discolored skin than laser treatments or other harsh procedures.

FAST RESULTS

Microdermabrasion yields quick results and takes little time per procedure. With less than an hour per visit and a total of roughly six to 10 monthly sessions, this procedure yields impressive results for most patients. While there is little to no downtime after each procedure, you can expect a bit of skin tightening, facial flushing, and in some cases, eye irritation as a result. Eye irritations are most often prevented by the use of goggles that protect you from the crystallized debris that is removed from your skin. Nevertheless, some sanded down skin manages to escape from time to time, which is why the use of goggles or eyewear are highly recommended.
