Microdermabrasion is a popular cosmetic treatment that offers a number of benefits in the appearance and texture of the skin. This effective anti-aging procedure is convenient and non-invasive. It has been shown to be effective in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, along with the improvement of uneven skin tones.
Microderm, as the procedure is often called, also smooths rough and uneven skin texture and can help your skincare products to absorb more completely. Collagen growth is increased through treatments, leading to skin with more volume and a younger appearance.
Microdermabrasion exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal healthier skin beneath. A crystal or diamond tip is typically used to deliver this exfoliation in a precise manner using innovative technology that can’t be replicated in over-the-counter microderm products used at home.
Crystal microdermabrasion was the first type to arrive on the market. Aluminum oxide crystals are sprayed through a wand in order to produce the ablation effects on the skin, and then are quickly vacuumed off.
Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is the newer technology and is able to be used in more sensitive areas, such as around the nose and mouth.
Candidates for Microdermabrasion
Microderm can address a number of skin issues and is a very versatile treatment. It works quite well to clear blocked pores and for patients who cannot tolerate harsh skincare products or prescription creams.
You may be a good candidate if you are currently dealing with issues such as age spots, uneven skin texture, mild acne scars or dull-looking skin. Those with skin conditions such as psoriasis or dermatitis or who have open wounds and lesions typically are not good candidates.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microderm’s benefits are many, and best results are usually achieved through a series of treatments. Your ideal amount of treatments will vary depending on your needs.
Microdermabrasion is ideal for even the most sensitive skin because the device used can be adjusted in intensity. Microderm is a highly-tailored procedure that can address each patient’s unique problematic areas. There’s no downtime with microderm, and a session only requires minimal time.
As you can see, this non-surgical skin resurfacing procedure can help to solve a number of the most common skin problems and offers many advantages.
