What is Microdermabrasion?

It is one of the more recent skin-care techniques to have crossed over from Hollywood to the mainstream public being deemed an “instant facelift” and a better alternative to more invasive procedures like chemical peels, surgery or Botox. Microdermabrasion does not actually deal with the dermal layer of skin like its name suggests but targets the epidermis, the top layer of skin. If you were to try and target deeper layers you risk getting the tiny grains used embedded in your skin and it would be very painful and damaging to your skin.

Should I Get Microdermabrasion?

There are quite a few things to consider when thinking about getting microdermabrasion. Most people turn to microdermabrasion if they:

  • have clogged pores and experience whitehead or blackhead breakouts often
  • suffer from acne, sun damage, or wrinkles
  • want to maintain clear and healthy skin
  • want brighter, healthier, glowing skin

Any skin type can benefit from microdermabrasion except those that have open wounds on the skin or are in the middle of an active acne breakout.

What is The Treatment Like?

We use a medical grade, crystal-free system that removes all the dead skin cells on the top layer of your skin and promotes healthy cell turnover leaving you with softer, more radiant skin. On top of increasing healthy cell turnover antioxidants and anti-flammatory ingredients are infused into the treated skin for extra hydration leaving your skin feeling smooth and supple.

Simply put, a microdermabrasion treatment is like taking a handful of sand and scrubbing your face with it minus the irritation. Rough grains buff away the top layer of your skin and then a cream or moisturizer is placed on your skin to promote hydration, elasticity and a healthy glow. Since there is no downtime the treatment is pretty simple although it can take a few sessions for most to achieve desired results. For the best results a series of 6 treatments every week is recommended.

The Good and the Bad

Every cosmetic procedure has its pros and cons and microdermabrasion is no different. Let’s start with the bad news first. If you have serious skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis or deep acne then microdermabrasion cannot help you because those conditions go deeper than the first layer of skin. Some people experience sensitive skin and a harsh response to the sun after treatment. It also requires multiple sessions and maintenance outside of the doctors’ office. The good news is that you can expect immediate results with little to no pain, side effects or downtime. It can improve the look of scars, wrinkles and dark spots as well as being effective on all skin types and colors.

Just a few ways microdermabrasion can change your life is by diminishing the appearance of scars and dark marks, help control acne breakouts and by keeping your skin smooth and glowing. For a procedure that takes a short amount to perform with minimal effects there’s no wonder why it is one of the most popular services in medical spas.
