From minimizing fine lines to improving your pores, microdermabrasion provides many benefits. It is one of the three most commonly performed dermatology treatments in the United States, and its relatively low cost makes it a practical choice for patients with minor skin problems and early signs of aging.
Microdermabrasion sloughs off the dead and dull surface layers of the skin, stimulating an increase in collagen production and rejuvenation. Many patients see dramatic improvements in the tone, texture, and color of treated areas after just one treatment. Microdermabrasion can also improve:
- Oily or dull skin
- Enlarged pores
- Clogged pores
- Fine lines
- Mild acne scars
- Mild complexion problems (such as uneven pigmentation or poor skin texture)
The benefits of microdermabrasion also include enhanced circulation and lymph flow, which promote the internal health of the skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
Convenience is one of the significant microdermabrasion benefits that make this procedure so popular. Microdermabrasion treatments are often referred to as the “lunchtime facial” because they can be completed in as little as thirty minutes at an aesthetic clinic or cosmetic dermatologist’s office. Because the microdermabrasion procedure is non-surgical and virtually painless, it is a safe and highly effective way to restore a clear, youthful glow to the skin.
Microdermabrasion can be done as frequently as weekly or up to every eight weeks depending on your skin’s tolerance and desired cosmetic effects. Many people choose to start with weekly treatments for three sessions, then change to a monthly maintenance regimen.
Your skin is first cleansed with a special cleansing gel. The doctor then starts the micro abrasion procedure using a hand-held device. The aluminum oxide micro crystal flow is sandblasted through a small tube pressed against the skin. The tube also vacuums back dead skin cells and used micro crystals.
The crystal flow starts as soon as the microderm abrasion wand touches your skin. The doctor slowly moves the wand across your entire face and not just on treated areas, so that you don’t experience inconsistence in skin texture or color. After microdermabrasion, your skin is soothed with a special nourishing sun blocking cream, allowing you to go back to your daily routine immediately after treatment.
