What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that exfoliates and removes the surface layer of dead skin cells. The procedure is non-invasive, and the tool uses tiny crystals to exfoliate the skin. Some of the systems have suction to vacuum loose skin cells from the face. People who have fine lines, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, and clogged pores will benefit most from the procedure.
Different Microdermabrasion Treatments
Microdermabrasion can be done in the comfort of your home, at a medical office, or even at a spa. The major differences are that the devices used in a medical office usually have larger motors and more power. Also, when performed at a medical office or spa, the tools can penetrate deeper into the skin to provide precise exfoliation. Ideally, drugstore treatments are a good form of maintenance in between in-office microdermabrasion treatments.
When microdermabrasion is done in an office or spa there are two general methods:
This form of microdermabrasion requires a handpiece that emits crystals onto the surface of the desired area. Dead skin cells are suctioned off of the skin.
Diamond -Tip Microdermabrasion
This type of microdermabrasion works with a diamond-tip handpiece. Just like the crystal microdermabrasion, the dead skin cells are suctioned off. The diamond-tip procedure is safer to perform closer to the eyes and the tool has more flexibility in sensitive areas or on more sensitive skin.
Works on All Skin Types
Microdermabrasion can be done on the face as well as the body and is effective on all skin types. Whether your skin is dry, oily, or normal, you can give this procedure a try. It is also safe for all skin complexions.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
While there’s no way to actually shrink the size of your pores, microdermabrasion can help significantly reduce the appearance, by unclogging the oil and dead skin that may be locked inside.
Stimulates Blood Flow
The delicate exfoliation of a microdermabrasion treatment boosts circulation in your face, which promotes efficient healing and restoration of your skin.
Increases Collagen Production
The amount of collagen that our bodies produce declines with age. Microdermabrasion can help develop more collagen and elastin. The result will be tighter, smoother, and younger looking skin.
Corrects Uneven Skin Tone
If you’re having difficulty with hyperpigmentation, dark spots, or acne scars, microdermabrasion can even out skin tone by eliminating dead and discolored skin.
Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Microdermabrasion minimizes the appearance of surface wrinkles, which makes it necessary to add to your anti-aging regimen.
If you begin to get microdermabrasion treatments on a regular basis, you can reap some of the incredible long-term benefits. Going for facials on a consistent basis can affect the way the deeper layers of your skin grow, eliminating skin problems permanently over time.
