Microdermabrasion is a type of skin resurfacing treatment that polishes the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresh skin underneath. It can help to stimulate the growth of new collagen and lead to smoother, more youthful skin. Regular use can help to brighten your complexion and enhance product absorption. It is a procedure you might strongly consider adding to your beauty routine.
How It Works
Microdermabrasion enhances the appearance of your skin by removing the top layer of organic material composed of dead skin cells, oils, dirt, and cellular debris. This helps in cases of rough skin texture and dull skin tone. The effect is similar to removing a layer of dust from a lightbulb. By removing this inorganic material, medically known as the stratum corneum, we can reveal the brightness of your skin underneath.
This treatment may benefit you if you are looking to brighten your complexion, smooth uneven skin texture, and reduce the appearance of light lines, wrinkles, and superficial acne scars. The treatment works best when you undergo it periodically to remove built-up inorganic material on the surface of your skin.
One of the main advantages to microdermabrasion is its ability to enhance the appearance of your skin without the need for incisions. You should notice immediate results and an improvement in light lines and wrinkles, scars, and enlarged pores.
Another key benefit to the treatment is its ability to enhance the absorption of topical skin care products like creams, lotions, gels, ointments, and serums. Enhanced product absorption leads to better results for your skin.
What to Expect
If you are undergoing a microdermabrasion treatment, we would begin by using a small device to spray microscopic crystals onto your skin’s surface. This has an abrading or gentle scrubbing effect similar to a mild form of exfoliation. The abrasive particles will break up the stratum corneum skin layer that can dull the brightness of your complexion. We then vacuum up these particles along with the top layer of cellular debris.
A second type of microdermabrasion involves the use of a diamond-tip device. Like the regular form of treatment, it involves breaking the molecular bonds holding the stratum corneum together. This debris is then vacuumed away from your skin to enhance its appearance. Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is best suited for treatment areas that have delicate skin such as around the eyes.
