Skin can be damaged by hormonal changes, exposure to environmental elements, and aging. If the appearance and texture of the skin have been affected by these factors, a procedure called microdermabrasion may be of help.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is mechanical exfoliation that removes the uppermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, chest and hands. The face is sprayed with exfoliant crystals to remove dead epidermal cells. This procedure takes about 30-45 minutes and there's no down-time for the skin to recover. The discarded crystals and debris are simultaneously vacuumed into a receptacle and are later disposed.
Will I Experience Any Discomfort During Treatment?
Microdermabrasion treatment is painless. Some patients have reported some itchiness or stinginess when micro crystals came in contact with their skin. You may feel some discomfort around the eyes, but as microdermabrasion treatment continues, your skin gets used to crystal flow. It feels like the mild facial massage from a special wand. Your face may appear a little pinkish in the first 24 hours, but you should not experience any itchiness or pain.
What can Microdermabrasion do for me?
Microdermabrasion can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, helps fight acne, removes acne scarring, evens skin tone, eliminates white and black heads, minimizes large pores and revitalizes dull skin. Microdermabrasion helps skin regeneration by increasing its elasticity and collagen production.
What are the results?
Microdermabrasion leaves skin fresher and glowing, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and coarse textured skin. Several treatments may be needed to achieve the desired results.
