What is microdermabrasion? Microdermabrasion is a facial process in which a diamond-tipped wand is passed over the skin, effectively scraping away dead cells on the surface. The machine also has a vacuum that will remove them as well as stimulate blood flow to the area. This technique is essentially an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that leaves skin looking softer and brighter. It stimulates collagen growth and reveals healthy new skin that looks and feels smoother.
Other benefits include: rejuvenating sun damaged skin, easing age spots, improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles, making other cosmetic procedures more effective (like chemical peels or topical products), help makeup look smoother, improving acne scars, and shrinking pores. Who doesn’t want that?!
Microdermabrasion is also painless and works quickly! It is effective on all skin types and colors, making subtle changes with no skin color change or scarring. Skin is temporarily pink after microdermabrasion, but fully recovers within 24 hours. No anesthetics or surgery are required! There is no recovery time needed, and you will want to use moisturizer and sunscreen and avoid certain types of makeup for 24 hours after the procedure. The procedure allows moisturizers to be better absorbed into your skin as well. You will want to avoid sun exposure for several days after the procedure also.
In 2014, microdermabrasion was the #5 medical aesthetic procedure performed! Unlike chemical peels and laser skin treatments, microdermabrasion does not penetrate beneath the epidermis (outer layer of skin).
