Every day, your skin is exposed to a number of different environmental elements. Pollution and sun damage can have significant effects on your skin. Microdermabrasion can be effective for removing dead skin cells and improving your appearance. This treatment can reduce the appearance of age spots, fine lines and acne scars. It can also reduce the appearance of several other types of unwanted skin pigmentation.
How Does It Work?
The microdermabrasion process doesn’t use chemicals, and since it’s a non-invasive procedure, you don’t have to worry about serious side effects associated with surgery. The procedure consists of introducing the outer layer of skin to tiny particles. Once they come into contact with your outer layer of skin, the particles begin to remove dead skin. By removing the old layer of dead skin, the procedure is able to reveal the beautiful layer of skin underneath.
Microdermabrasion can also encourage the production of new skin cells because it stimulates the production of natural elastin and collagen. These natural compounds can have a profound impact on your appearance.
Are You a Candidate?
You could be a good candidate for microdermabrasion if you have problems with skin texture, clogged pores, uneven pigmentation, age spots, wrinkles or facial lines. You might also be a great candidate if you have acne or rosacea. The micro-particles used during the procedure can improve a variety of skin conditions. Once the outer layer of skin has been removed, the fresh skin beneath it will shine through and improve your appearance.
The Microdermabrasion Procedure
During the procedure, tiny particles move through a special device, which is placed against your skin for exfoliation. The system that is used for the procedure provides mild suction to remove dead skin cells from your face. Microdermabrasion is used to create healthier, thicker layers of skin.
To get the best results, you’ll likely want to undergo multiple treatments. Each treatment encourages your body to produce new skin, which contains more elastin and collagen. These compounds are very important for healthy, vibrant skin.
A typical treatment session may take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. The procedure hasn’t been reported to cause much discomfort, but since it’s used to exfoliate dead skin cells, it can cause slight warming sensations. A lot of people say it feels very similar to getting a facial massage. Microdermabrasion is extremely versatile and doesn’t require any recovery time.
