Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular beauty treatments around, and that is due to the fact that is so effective, easy to complete, and offers a range of fantastic benefits.
How Does It Work?
There are two types of microdermabrasion treatments: crystal treatments and diamond treatments. For the crystal treatment, super-fine crystals buff and exfoliate your skin through the use of a wand and then are vacuumed back into the device. The diamond treatment uses a diamond-tipped wand, which is moved smoothly along your skin, buffing it and clearing away impurities. At Orange Blossom Women’s Group, we offer this treatment with a diamond-tipped wand.
Does It Treat Acne?
Yes, microdermabrasion can help eliminate acne breakouts as well as those little blackheads. One cause of acne is due to the dead skin cells and bacteria that clog your pores. As the wand clears away all those impurities, it can help clear your skin as well as lessen inflammation.
Does It Treat Wrinkles?
This treatment helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by aging. Basically, the increased circulation that microdermabrasion provides and the way it is able to encourage collagen production can help fill out and erase lines and wrinkles on your face.
Does It Treat Scars?
Yes, microdermabrasion will also help reduce the look of scars, especially those that are left behind after an acne breakout. For one, the diamond-tipped wand buffs away old, unhealthy scar tissue, while also promoting collagen production that will restructure that scarred tissue so that your scar is less noticeable.
What Are the Other Benefits?
Along with the aforementioned benefits, this treatment will improve the overall look and texture of your skin, leaving it not only smoother but tighter as well. It can also help minimize the size of your pores by getting rid of the dead skin cells and other impurities that are clogging them up.
When Will I See Results?
You should begin to see results right after your microdermabrasion treatment. Our patients report that their skin is tighter and more youthful looking almost right away. And the great thing about microdermabrasion is the more treatments you have done, the better your skin will look and feel.
How Long Does a Treatment Last?
Usually, our microdermabrasion treatments only take a half hour to an hour to compete. The time will be determined by which areas of your face you want to treat.
Is There Downtime?
There is little to no downtime with microdermabrasion. Most of our patients have the treatment done and go right back to work without any trouble. We recommend avoiding makeup and sun after your treatment and applying a light moisturizer.
