New year, New Skin (literally)
- Posted on: Jan 15 2018
This year, make beautiful skin one of your resolutions. Microdermabrasion can see even skin texture, reduce lines and scars, and present a more polished and even appearance. If you are looking for an effective skin treatment that requires zero downtime, microdermabrasion is for you.
How it works
Microdermabrasion uses a minimally abrasive instrument to sand away the old top layer of your skin, revealing a new and fresh layer beneath. Overtime the top layer of your skin can become thick and uneven. Microdermabrasion is a quick and effective skin rejuvenation technique that will exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance.
Microdermabrasion delivers a variety of benefits. It can decrease the visibility of age spots and pores, improve hyperpigmentation, decrease the appearance of stretch marks and wrinkles, and treat scars. As we age, the supple, elastic skin we had as children will slowly change. This is because collagen production naturally declines with age, revealing loose and uneven skin. Microdermabrasion can aid in enhancing collagen in the skin to create a smooth and taut look once more.
No down time is needed after your microdermabrasion treatment. Although you can resume your regular activities, it is recommended to avoid sun exposure for the first few days if possible.
The potential problems associated with microdermabrasion are minimal and temporary if they do occur. After your treatment, you may experience swelling and redness, but this will diminish within a few days. You may also experience bruising due to the suction of the microdermabrasion instrument. Since the skin will be extra sensitive post-procedure, all patients should limit sun exposure and use sunscreen.
Depending on your skin type and the severity of your skin damage, the number of microdermabrasion treatments you need will vary. With the recommendation of a skin specialist, many patients get treatments every two to four weeks to maintain the smooth look and feel of their skin.
