Are you looking for a skin care treatment that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage and acne scars? If so, microdermabrasion may be the perfect solution. This non-invasive procedure is becoming increasingly popular due to its ability to improve overall skin health and provide noticeable results with minimal downtime or discomfort.
What is Microdermabrasion and What are its Benefits?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, skin resurfacing procedure designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and other blemishes. It works by gently exfoliating the outer layer of skin to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion below. This procedure is often referred to as the “lunchtime peel” because the process is quick and requires minimal downtime.
The primary benefits of microdermabrasion include the elimination of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and other blemishes on the face. This procedure can also improve skin texture, tone, and overall complexion. Finally, it can diminish acne scars and discoloration, reduce enlarged pores, and even out blotchy skin.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical skin resurfacing procedure that utilizes a mechanical abrasion tool to gently exfoliate the outer layer of the skin. During the treatment, tiny abrasive crystals are sprayed onto the surface of the skin to help remove dead cells and other impurities from the epidermis. The abrasion tool then suctions away the loosened debris and exfoliated cells, creating a smoother, brighter looking complexion.
As an additional benefit, some microdermabrasion machines also use special attachments to infuse skin with hydrating serums that can help improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. At the end of the procedure, a moisturizing cream is applied to the skin to soothe and hydrate it.
Microdermabrasion treatments are usually performed every two weeks, depending on the patient’s desired results and skin type. The number of sessions required will vary from person to person, but typically a series of five or six treatments is recommended for maximum effects. With regular treatments, patients can enjoy brighter, smoother, younger-looking skin.
What Skin Types are Suitable for Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is often recommended for people with normal to oily skin who have minor signs of aging, mild to moderate sun damage, age spots, hyperpigmentation, shallow scars, enlarged pores, or clogged pores. It can also be beneficial for those with sensitive or dry skin, as it helps to increase circulation and stimulate collagen production to improve skin texture and elasticity. However, those with active acne should usually avoid microdermabrasion, as it may cause irritation and worsen the condition.
