Ever wondered why skin begins to look dull and less vibrant as we get older?
Slowed cellular turnover and accumulation of dead skin cells can lead to uneven tone, rough texture, and make photodamage and signs of aging more evident.
Microdermabrasion offers women and men a fast, easy, and painless way to exfoliate skin and reveal a more refreshed and radiant complexion.
If you would like to achieve healthy and glowing skin, without downtime or irritation, microdermabrasion may be just what you’re looking for.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment designed to exfoliate the outer layers of skin. In doing so, it removes damage, dead skin cells, and other debris and revitalizes skin.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
There are two types of microdermabrasion – crystal-based and non-crystal.
With a crystal-based treatment, very fine crystals are delivered to the skin at a high speed in order to exfoliate the epidermis. At the same time, a vacuum suction is used to suction crystals back into the machine and remove dead skin cells.
A non-crystal microdermabrasion may involve exfoliation with a diamond-tipped wand or bristles. This approach also utilizes a suction to aid in the collection of cells and debris.
What Are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?
Many patients elect to undergo microdermabrasion for overall tone and texture improvements.
However, this skincare solution can also target specific skin concerns including sun spots, hyperpigmentation, congested pores, and acne scars.
What’s more, by eliminating damaged outer layers of skin, microdermabrasion allows for smoother makeup application, increased penetration of skincare products, and diminished appearance of wrinkles and lines.
What Can Patients Expect Post-Procedure?
Most microdermabrasion treatments can be completed in 30-45 minutes and require zero downtime.
Patients may experience mild and temporary redness and should take care to use a daily broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least a 30 SPF.
How Often Should You Undergo Treatment?
In order to thoroughly remove layers of damaged skin, a majority of patients will need a series of sessions.
Sessions can be completed every two weeks, or every four-to-six weeks for microdermabrasion beginners.
