How Microdermabrasion Creates Radiant Skin

How Microdermabrasion Creates Radiant Skin

Commonly, people choose microdermabrasion to revitalize their dull skin, but this advanced skin treatment can also be used to address specific skin health concerns. Microdermabrasion is more intense than any related at-home procedures, which is why it can be used to treat skin conditions that regular exfoliation cannot. Unlike more invasive treatments such as surgical procedures, microdermabrasion offers lower costs, quick treatment time, no surgical risk, minimal side effects, instant, natural-looking and long-lasting results, and little to no downtime. Here is how this treatment works and what skin concerns it can address.

The Benefits Of Microdermabrasion

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion is a form of intense exfoliation. This treatment is administered by a skin care professional who operates a hand-held device that uses tiny crystals to break up dead skin cells to remove dead skin and reveal smooth, soft skin. Microdermabrasion also helps to remove oil and other buildups on the face, neck, chest, and back. This minimally invasive procedure is typically performed in-office and does not require numbing cream. After your treatment, your skin care professional will administer a facial moisturizer and will give you instructions about how to care for your skin after microdermabrasion. For more noticeable results, intensive microdermabrasion can be used. This combines physical and chemical exfoliation, a Microdermabrasion treatment and a Medical-Grade Chemical Peel, to brighten and improve overall skin texture.

What Skin Concerns Does Microdermabrasion Address?

Wrinkles And Fine Lines
When the top layer of skin is removed during microdermabrasion, shallow wrinkles and fine lines become less visible. This is because microdermabrasion signals to the body that the area of treatment needs repair, which boosts the production of naturally occurring collagen. This boosts skin elasticity and plumpness, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dull And Dry Skin
Because microdermabrasion is an intense exfoliator, dead skin in your treatment area will be removed. When the topmost layer of skin is removed, it reveals newer, fresher skin that has a youthful, radiant glow.
Hyperpigmentation, Melasma, Age Spots, Sun Spots, And Sun Damage
By removing the outermost layer of the skin, discolouration is reduced. When dead skin is removed, it encourages more rapid skin cell turnover, which helps minimize the appearance of hyperpigmentation. It will likely take several microdermabrasion treatments to address pigmentation-related concerns and the number of treatments needed will depend on the severity of the including the depth, size, and tone of the discoloured area.
Acne And Acne Scars
The exfoliating properties of microdermabrasion remove oil buildup, unclog pores, and shrink pore size, which can help reduce mild acne. Microdermabrasion can also help to reduce the appearance of acne scars by removing damaged skin. Microdermabrasion should not be used on cystic acne or acne that is already inflamed. Although microdermabrasion can be used to address several types of acne scars, it can’t flatten hypertrophic or keloid scars.
Uneven Skin Tone And Texture
By removing the top layer of the skin, uneven skin texture is resolved, and fresh smooth skin is revealed. It should be noted that while microdermabrasion can help even out skin texture, it does not change the appearance or texture of cellulite.
