Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells and makes the skin a fresh, clean canvas for treatment.
To speed up the rate at which dead skin is exfoliated, and jump start the proliferation of new skin cells,your a esthetician or dermatologist may recommend a series of microdermabrasion treatments. Using a diamond- or bristle-tip head, skin is lightly “buffed,” gently lifting away dead skin cells that contribute to a lackluster appearance. “I do microdermabrasion on my clients before every facial since it’s great for breaking through the top layers of damaged skin and getting off that ‘city grime.’ It’s so hard to do a facial on someone whose skin is essentially suffocating,” says New York a esthetician Joanna Vargas. “When the dead skin cells are eliminated, products can penetrate better and skin won’t feel as dry.” Used to treat a variety of different skin concerns, including hyper pigmentation, sun-damage spots, dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, and even minor acne scars, microdermabrasion can be coupled with just about any other type of skin treatment and is usually recommended to be done every few weeks to every two or three months.
Microdermabrasion clears out pores and helps keep skin blemish-free.
Treatments: Microdermabrasion just prior to your period can help keep pores clear of dirt and debris that can lead to pimples. dermatologist Julie Voss, MD, of Kirkland, Washington notes that some antibiotics, such as tetracycline, doxycycline and minocycline taken over the long-term “help to calm down the hormonal cycle,” as can Ortho-TriCyclen, the only oral contraceptive that has been proven to improve mild to moderate acne. And yet another option is Ziana, which just recently received FDA approval. This is the first and only topical that combines clindamycin (an antibiotic) and tretinoin (a retinoid) to treat acne.
Microdermabrasion facial is a deeply effective treatment for renewing a fresh, young-looking glow to your skin.
Microdermabrasion can best be described as plastic surgery without the plastic… or the surgery! It’s one of the simplest and least disruptive skin treatments and is ideal even for people with sensitive skin.
The microdermabrasion technique works with microcrystals, which are hard enough to disrupt unwanted tired skin cells that cause dull looking skin. But small enough not to do any damage or even cause discomfort or pain. The technique involves propelling the microcrystals across the skin’s surface, removing only the top layer of skin cells. This technology reveals new, living cells leaving a healthy glow. The epidermal layers of the skin are rejuvenated leading to collagen production and plumper skin.
Microdermabrasion is a progressive procedure. After the first session your skin will feel softer and you may see a very subtle improvement. Generally a course of sessions is required to gain visible improvement. Your skin however will improve with additional treatments as increased circulation is noted within the dermis and newer, healthier skin cells are produced.
Not only does undergoing a microdermabrasion facial mean not having any artificial or even natural substances injected, but it also works in harmony with your body. Once the treatment has removed dead and tired cells, your body will work to replace them with fresh, healthier looking skin.
Having a microdermabrasion facial does not cause any pain or even discomfort.
Not only can you return to your normal routine immediately after treatment, but you can even reapply your make-up right away. The only real side effect is possible temporary redness of the skin, which soon fades. Other existing medical conditions should be highlighted during your consultation and advice will be given on an individual basis.
Although microdermabrasion is fundamentally safe, you should still make sure to get treated at a reputable clinic with staff that can provide their credentials and experience.
