Exfoliation has long been one of the most effective ways to brighten and renew the surface of the skin. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that takes exfoliation to the next level. These treatments are designed to lighten sun spots and age spots, diminish the appearance of fine lines and unwanted freckles, minimize pores and reduce mild to moderate acne scarring. The application and agitation of fine, coarse materials gently lifts away dead and damaged skin cells. These treatments also stimulate the proliferation of new, healthy skin cells and increased collagen production. The results include firmer, clearer and more youthful-looking skin overall.
Is Microdermabrasion Right for You?
Both safe and non-invasive, microdermabrasion entails very little to no recovery time. If you want to brighten and refresh your skin while eliminating minor cosmetic issues, such as sun spots or fine lines, this could be the perfect solution for you. This is a safe and effective skin rejuvenation procedure for all skin colors and types. It is fast and simple enough to be completed on a lunch break and capable of producing rapid and remarkable changes in both skin texture and tone.
How Microdermabrasion is Performed
At the start of a microdermabrasion procedure, the skin is thoroughly cleaned. A small device that blasts aluminum oxide micro-crystals will then be passed over the face. This gently abrades away dead skin cells. The device has a small tube that simultaneously sucks up the used micro-crystals and other debris. The microdermabrasion tool is passed over the entirety of the face, rather than used solely for targeting areas of special concern. This ensures that the results are even and consistent in both color and texture.
After the microdermabrasion treatment, you can immediately resume your normal activities. This procedure typically lasts between 20 and 30 minutes; however, some microdermabrasion treatments can last up to one full hour, particularly if extended areas, such as the neck, are treated.
Side effects are very minimal after a microdermabrasion treatment. While some patients report noticeable changes after just a single session, most people require multiple treatments before seeing marked improvements in dark spots, pore size or mild facial wrinkling.
