What is microdermabrasion?
Skin microdermabrasion is a gentle treatment that promotes more youthful, fresh-looking skin. The outer layer of skin is removed with the help of aluminium oxide or bicarbonade crystals. This promotes renewal of skin surface cells while stimulating production of collagen and elastin within deeper layers of skin.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
What does microdermabrasion do?
Microdermabrasion erases superficial irregularities and improves dull and uneven skin color. Although usually it is not very effective for deep wrinkles and expression lines (smile lines, frown lines), it does soften soft lines. Also it alleviates clogged pores and blackheads, as well as it can be beneficial for acne scars and enlarged pores.
How is a microdermabrasion performed?
Before microdermabrasion treatment, your skin is well cleansed to remove make up and dust particles. Small hand-piece is used to apply microscopic crystals, which removes dead skin layer leaving smooth revitalized skin surface. The procedure takes around twenty to forty-five minutes and is usually painless. Normally there is little or no visible evidence that the procedure has been performed, however your skin might be slightly taut or red immediately after skin microdermabrasion.
For optimal results you will need five or more treatment sessions at intervals of seven to fourteen days. For lasting results maintenance treatments are required.
Microdermabrasion is not recommended for people with an acute inflammatory skin condition or for patients taking certain medications. When done by a medical professional, microdermabrasion is a safe and noninvasive treatment.
