What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to rejuvenate your skin tone and texture. It is extremely beneficial to people with uneven skin tones, brightening even the dullest complexion up after a series of treatments. It also helps thicken your natural collagen, which is a protein found under your skin that makes skin appear smoother.
Microdermabrasion is generally better for people with oily skin, as opposed to dry skin. But can be used safely for all skin types and tones. It is a procedure similar to dermaplaning. However, while dermaplaning exfoliates by gently scraping away the skin; microdermabrasion gently sands the outer layer of the skin. The sanding process reveals a new layer of skin that replaces the old, dull, top layer.
After a treatment, your skin will feel and look like it has been lightly sunburned for approximately 24 hours. Moisturize and apply sunscreen regularly to protect the new layer of skin.
How does Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion uses tiny exfoliating crystals that get applied to the skin using a gentle spray and vacuum process. The process is completely painless to the applicant. The exfoliating crystals act as an abrasive, and remove dirt, dead skin and other materials, which are then carried away as the crystals are vacuumed up. The result is a new fresh layer of skin being left behind. One of the major highlights with this procedure is the quick recovery period (less than 24 hours) and the fact that no surgery is needed.
