Microdermabrasion is one of those cosmetic procedures that most people have heard of, but don’t really know much about.
Microdermabrasion facial treatment is a recommended solution for fine lines, superficial blemishes and marks, congested skin and mild pigmentary problems.
It's one of the simplest and least disruptive skin treatments and is ideal even for people with sensitive skin.
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells. According to licensed medical aesthetician Maria Barry at Union Square Laser Dermatology, microdermabrasionmachines can buff and polish the skin using a stream of fine crystals or a diamond tip. Some systems have suction to vacuum loose skin cells from the face.
Microdermabrasion stimulates blood flow, which increases the nutrition delivered to skin cells. This improves cell production, which improves skin’s elasticity and texture. So, if you have acne scarring, microdermabrasion may help reduce the appearance of acne scars. However, it’s not recommended if you have skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, active sunburn, herpes, lupus, open sores, psoriasis, fragile capillaries or widespread acne. This can irritate the skin and cause further breakouts.
Microdermabrasion is a progressive procedure. After the first session your skin will feel softer and you may see a very subtle improvement. To gain visible improvement we generally recommend a course of sessions because additional treatments cause an increase in circulation within the dermis and newer, healthier skin cells are produced.
