Microdermabrasion treatment exfoliates the surface of the skin and helps improve overall skin tone and texture.Book Now
Daily exposure to the environment can affect your skin over the years and in some cases, cause damage that is difficult for your skin to repair on its own. Sun rays, pollution, cold dry weather, and other damaging elements can hurt your skin. Microdermabrasion treatment can reduce and correct fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, acne scars, dark pigmentation and spots of aging that appear on the skin over the years.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that contains no chemicals or invasive elements. The procedure involves a spray of microcrystals to strip the outermost layer of skin cells to uncover younger and healthier skin. The procedure helps to produce a new layer of skin cells that contain higher levels of collagen and elastin that work to improve your skin’s health and appearance.
Adults with fine lines or wrinkles, age spots, sun damaged skin, uneven pigmentation, clogged pores, poorly textured skin or minor scars are the perfect candidates for microdermabrasion and can greatly benefit from the procedure. Those who suffer from acne or rosacea can also benefit from microdermabrasion treatment. After treatment, their skin will greatly improve to reveal a newer, fresher layer of skin cleared of blemishes and scarring.
Benefits And Risks
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, safe procedure that produces results. The benefits of microdermabrasion include: elimination of fine facial lines and signs of aging, improved appearance of acne/other scars, enlivening of all skin types to produce a fresh and healthy glow. All these results are possible with hardly any side effects. Skin that is sensitive to chemicals won’t be irritated by a microdermabrasion because the treatment does not include any chemical ingredients, only non-allergenic crystals. Microdermabrasion also does not come with any serious risks when administered by a trained professional. Some may experience minor skin irritation after microdermabrasion. However, since everyone’s skin and health history will differ, the benefits and risks should be considered individually.
Who Should Avoid Microdermabrasion?
Those who have deep scars, active keloids, underlying lesions, herpes, warts on the face, active Stage 3 or Stage 4 acne, an autoimmune disorder, or untreated diabetes. Pregnant women should also avoid microdermabrasion treatment. Candidates who have undergone a recent chemical peel, collagen injection, or any other skin procedure should wait two to three weeks before microdermabrasion treatment. Those considering microdermabrasion should also avoid waxing and tanning in the weeks leading up to treatment.
Your clinician will perform your microdermabrasion procedure by moving a stream of tiny, micro aluminum oxide crystals through a hand-held tool that is placed against the skin. These dermabrasion crystals have exfoliating properties that will heal the skin, and coupled with a mild suction created by microdermabrasion, the skin will be stripped of debris and impurities.
Microdermabrasion aids in producing thicker, healthier layers of skin. However, it is important that a patient undergoes multiple treatments because the added treatment encourages the production of new layers of skin cells that provide extra stores of collagen and elastin. Both of these components are critical for maintaining vibrant, healthy skin. Microdermabrasion is an extremely popular treatment that improves the complexion and appearance of your skin.
