Microdermabrasion is a procedure done on the skin to clear blemishes and scars. It is an excellent alternative to other pricey procedures like plastic surgical treatment, botox injections or chemical peels. The uppermost layer of the skin is called the epidermis. This is the layer that protects the inner skin. It is bound to get flaked due to the effect of various creams and lotions used. Microdermabrasion scrapes off this layer to reveal a newer and fresher skin. Microdermabrasion treatment involves the use of a specialized tool that sprays a stream of petite crystals such as aluminium oxide or sodium chloride onto the skin to remove the old outer skin, and gathers the leftover skin and the used crystals. This procedure is less invasive and painless; it leaves you with fresh rejuvenated skin.
A session takes between 20 to 30 minutes for a face treatment. It takes more than an hour if other areas like the neck, are involved. 6 to 8 sessions every two weeks are recommended for a complete treatment after that once every 3 months to maintain the skin glow. You are likely to see the results after the 5th session. It is wise to take a photo before the treatment so that you can compare with the results later.
What are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?
If you are looking for a brighter, glowing and blemish-free skin, then microdermabrasion is recommended. It clears out the scars, and evens out the skin tone.
It helps clear blemishes, sun damage, noticeable skin imperfections and gives you a smoother fresh looking skin. Since the outer layer has been removed, the moisturizers and creams get deep into the skin making it very effective. It enhances hyperpigmentation and age spots; lessens blackheads and wrinkles. It trims down the appearance of fine lines and stretch marks and heals acnes.
Microdermabrasion does not require recovery time you get to work as soon as you are out of the treatment room. Microdermabrasion is a cost-effective procedure for that young, glowing skin you have always wanted for a long time.
