Microdermabrasion is one of today’s most popular nonsurgical anti-aging treatments and is available in both dermatologist offices and skin spas. This method of physical exfoliation involves buffing away the surface layer of your skin while simultaneously vacuuming up dead cells, oil, and other yucky debris that’s trapped in your pores. The benefits of microdermabrasion are many. It removes dull skin, softens fine lines, smoothes out coarse skin texture, reduces acne and pore size, fades scars and brown spots, and stimulates cell turnover and the creation of collagen.
There are two types of microdermabrasion, crystal and non-crystal. Crystal microdermabrasion blasts tiny medical-grade crystals across the skin’s surface. Non-crystal microdermabrasion uses a rough or diamond-tipped disc to slough the skin.
Microdermabrasion is effective on all skin types and skin tones, and offers a great alternative to chemical peels for anyone with sensitive skin or who’s pregnant and wants to avoid harsh ingredients. It’s also great for people who have a lot of acne, whiteheads, and blackheads.
The microdermator machine has a wand at the end of which is a 6 millimeter head (that’s slightly larger than a pencil eraser) that has either the crystals or rough disk that will exfoliate your skin. As the wand is moved methodically over your skin, you may feel a slight gritty tugging sensation, similar to the lick of a cat’s rough tongue, but otherwise there is no discomfort. Once the microdermabrasion is complete, a hydrating cream is usually applied to dry or normal skin and anti-acne medicine would be used to treat blemish-prone skin. There is also virtually no downtime.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF Microdermabrasion?
If you have overly sensitive skin or received an extra aggressive treatment, your face will likely show redness for about an hour or so after the treatment. You may also notice some mild dryness or flaking.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF Microdermabrasion?
You’ll see an immediate improvement in skin’s radiance, texture, and tone, but you’ll need to go through several sessions to witness the benefits of reversing pigmentation issues, minimizing fine lines, and boosting collagen production.
RECOMMENDED COURSE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?
Microdermabrasion isn’t a one hit wonder. If you want to smooth out those old acne scars and new fine lines, it’s going to take a series of about 6 treatments to see those results. Generally, your skin can handle one microdermabrasion treatment each month. Regular treatments also offer the best anti-aging benefits as well.
In our studio we are use both, crystal and also diamond microdermabrasion.
