Microdermabrasion is a light cosmetic procedure that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation to gently remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. Most commonly, microdermabrasion uses two parts: an exfoliating material like crystals or diamond flakes and a machine based suction to gently lift up the skin during exfoliation. It is a simple, easy, painless, non-invasive, skin rejuvenation procedure using a combination of a fine abrasive tip or crystals and vacuum suction applied to the skin. Typically there are no needles or anesthetics required for microdermabrasion. The vacuum pressure and speed are adjusted depending on the sensitivity and tolerance of the skin. This procedure gives you smooth skin, reduced fine line/wrinkles.
Microdermabrasion is very useful for people with active acne, mild acne discoloration, pick marks, and very superficial or raised acne scars. Dermatologists use microdermabrasion to help unclog pores and clear acne.
Long-term benefits of multiple microdermabrasion: Although even a single treatment of microdermabrasion will leave you noticing the difference immediately, for the best results you should consider multiple treatments. The benefits of ongoing treatment include:
Clean Pores: You will not have to worry any more about clogged pores because ongoing microdermabrasion treatment will clean out pores to leave your skin smoother and healthier.
New Skin Cells: When a microdermabrasion facial becomes a regular treatment, your skin cells will be replaced with new, healthy ones which will make your skin look and feel better.
Smoother Skin: You will be able to enjoy much smoother skin which is free from blemishes and fine lines when you take advantage of multiple treatments.
Reduced Scarring: If you suffer from acne scarring then a regular microdermabrasion facial treatment can significantly help to reduce the appearance of scarring.
