One of the biggest reasons for the development of skin that appears dull and lifeless is the buildup of skin cells on the surface of your skin. Over time, these dead skin cells can create a thick layer of debris that really dulls your skin complexion. If this is the case with you, you should consider undergoing a microdermabrasion treatment. But before undergoing any type of cosmetic treatment, you should ask certain questions so that you completely understand what the treatment involves.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a type of skin exfoliation that removes the buildup of dead skin cells, oils, and cellular debris on the surface of the skin. This material can block the natural radiance of your skin, and removing it reveals fresher skin underneath.
The treatment can be used for a number of skin conditions including dull skin tone, superficial acne scars, light wrinkles, and enlarged pores. Those who respond best to this treatment are those who have regular treatment sessions because the skin buildup tends to return over time.
How Is the Treatment Performed?
We use a small device to spray microscopic crystals onto the surface of your skin in the treatment area. These abrasive particles will break up the inorganic material found on the surface of your skin. At the end of the treatment, we use a vacuum to suction away both the inorganic material and the particles used in the treatment.
Are There Any Precautions That I Should Be Aware of before My Treatment?
Do not use exfoliating creams or Retin-A for a few days before your treatment. Do not use tanning creams or sprays or expose yourself to UV radiation for a minimum of one week before your treatment. You should wait about three weeks before undergoing microdermabrasion if you have had collagen injections or a recent chemical peel.
How Should I Care for My Skin after My Treatment?
After your microdermabrasion treatment, be sure to keep your skin clean and moisturized. Use a gentle cleanser and feel free to use cold compresses or anti-inflammatory creams. Avoid picking or scratching in the treatment area. Do not risk irritating your skin by rubbing or using harsh chemicals. Refrain from prolonged sun exposure for a minimum of one week after your treatment.
