The same goes for microdermabrasion. Let’s learn a bit more about this treatment and find out if microdermabrasion is right for you or if you should consider other treatments:
Who Should Use Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that revitalizes your skin and increases its elasticity to allow it to regenerate while producing collagen.
In other words, microdermabrasion can remove severe scarring and the dead cells of your skin. Microdermabrasion is not suitable if you want to get rid of deep skin discolorations. It is also not right for you if you have skin lesions or skin conditions like psoriasis.
Microdermabrasion is suited for:
- Getting rid of acne scars, uneven skin, large pores and fine wrinkles.
- Better skin texture and a more youthful look.
How Microdermabrasion Works
As the name suggests, microdermabrasion is a procedure that removes the uppermost layer of your skin, allowing a new, fresh one to surface. Don’t worry – it’s minimally invasive. The upper layer of your skin is mostly made of dead cells that do nothing else than make you look older.
Using state-of-the art technology and top quality products, the skin is infused with nutrients that boost its natural production of collagen. Thus, scars are repaired and fine lines and wrinkles are filled.
Is the Process Safe?
Microdermabrasion is safe and painless. Although some patients complain of itchiness, this depends mostly on the products they used prior to the treatment.
Before going for microdermabrasion treatment, you’ll want to consult a dermatologist or beauty expert on how to prepare your skin before the treatment.
In case, there is any skin sensitivity or reaction that you experience, rest assured that it will last for no more than a day.
Microdermabrasion is right for people who want an anti-aging treatment that doesn’t involve the scalpel and a long recovery period. The redness commonly associated with it will subside in a couple of hours to a day. Thus, you can have it done on a Saturday and look your very best for Sunday’s brunch.
