What is Microdermabrasion?

Last updated 6 years ago

Looking your best can help you feel more confident and achieve better success, and cosmetic treatments like laser hair removal and microdermabrasion can help you look great. Here is some more information on this cosmetic procedure to help you decide if it is right for you and your beauty regime:

  • How Microdermabrasion Works

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that involves removing the outer layer of skin to reveal brighter, younger, fresher skin cells. It can be compared to a deep exfoliation that removes dead cells and other impurities from your skin. Various materials may be used for microdermabrasion, including diamonds, minerals, and oxide crystals.

  • What Microdermabrasion Can Treat

Microdermabrasion can treat superficial wrinkles, scars, and acne spots. It can clear up dark spots or sun damage and help prevent new pimples or blemishes from occurring. As it sloughs away dead skin cells, microdermabrasion removes contaminants on the outer layer of skin, effectively eliminating dry, dull skin.

  • How Many Treatments Are Required

With one treatment, you'll see improvements. You may need additional treatments in the future to keep your skin looking its best, or you may need additional procedures to complete your treatment process. Like other skin rejuvenation procedures, the depth and magnitude of your problem will determine the exact number of microdermabrasion treatments you need.

  • How Long Recovery Takes

The recovery time for microdermabrasion is very limited. In fact, most people can carry on with their day after their appointment, because there is little, if any, pain, and very few risks associated with this procedure. Make sure to ask your skin care technician about any limitations or special instructions for care after your treatment.
