Microdermabrasion has become one of the more popular cosmetic procedures performed within the United States. In time, factors like sun damage, aging, genetics, or acne can result in changes to the texture of your skin. Microdermabrasion can help to reduce skin damage, leading to skin that is brighter and smoother overall.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a type of skin exfoliation involving the polishing of the outer part of your skin comprised of dried skin cells, oils, and cell debris. This material can build up on the surface of your skin and block the appearance of fresher skin underneath. It can also prevent the absorption of some topical skin care products. Microdermabrasion helps to remove this material and restore the vibrancy and luster of your skin while helping to improve the absorption of lotions, creams, ointments, and serums.
How Does the Treatment Work?
The treatment works by removing the stratum corneum layer of nonliving material found on your skin. We use a special diamond-tipped device to cause an exfoliating effect that breaks up the stratum corneum. Then we remove these abrasive particles and the dead skin cells from the surface of your skin.
There are actually two different forms of microdermabrasion: crystal and diamond-tip. The diamond-tip variety works in the same way as the crystal form but is more appropriate for use in delicate skin areas like below the eyes.
The best candidates for microdermabrasion are those with an overall good skin condition who are looking to brighten their complexion that has been dulled by surface buildup. The treatment is safe and effective for light wrinkles, superficial scars, dull skin tone, and enlarged pores. Clients who respond best to the treatment are those who undergo regular sessions as part of their ongoing beauty regimen.
This procedure is a non-aggressive treatment that helps to remove superficial skin layers. It stimulates the regeneration of a healthy and attractive outer skin layer. In addition to its ability to improve many common skin conditions, it also helps to improve the topical absorption of many skin care products that typically have a hard time penetrating the skin due to larger molecular sizes.
