Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in the world. If you have acne or superficial scars, microdermabrasion could be the treatment you need. When compared with some of the alternatives, this procedure is preferred.
It can greatly improve the appearance of surface hyperpigmentation, whiteheads and blackheads. Microdermabrasion can treat the body or face, and it can be more effective than chemicals peels for non-inflammatory acne.
How the Procedure Works
Many dermatologists choose to offer microdermabrasion treatments to their patients. The procedure consists of removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, which form the epidermis. During treatment, a special type of machine is used.
The machine releases tiny crystals in a controlled manner. The crystals come from a hand piece, which is gently swept over your skin. The purpose of the crystals is to exfoliate the skin. While the hand piece is releasing crystals, it’s also using suction to remove the crystals and dead skin cells.
The procedure eliminates the sticky materials that can clog pores. The procedure can give you smoother skin texture and minimize the appearance of large pores.
It’s possible that you’ll notice an improvement in your skin texture after a single procedure, but the best results are achieved when you receive consistent treatments. A typical microdermabrasion procedure causes minimal discomfort and can cause your skin to have a pink glow, which resembles mild sunburn.
While microdermabrasion treatments can help, they provide optimal results when used in conjunction with daily skin care and preventive maintenance. After achieving desirable results from the procedure, you may want to consider getting monthly treatments.
Are You A Candidate For Microdermabrasion Treatment?
The procedure is safe and effective, but while it does have the power to reduce the appearance of acne and superficial scars, it cannot eliminate these problems.
Microdermabrasion is quite an aggressive procedure. If you’re someone who is prone to something called inflamed acne, then you’ll want to avoid this procedure.
If you regularly break out with cysts, nodules, pustules or pimples, microdermabrasion can actually make these breakouts worse. You might be a great candidate for the surgery if you have rough skin texture, blackheads, whiteheads, excessively oily skin, mild acne scars or dark spots.
What Results Can I Expect?
Microdermabrasion is effective at dislodging impacted plugs from within your pores, smoothing skin texture and evening out surface scarring and dark spots.
