The Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion treatments used to be known as the lunchtime peel. This short but effective anti-aging skin procedure involved a visit to a dermatologist or spa.  

Professional microdermabrasion treatments involve the use of a tool with chipped diamonds around the hand piece to get rid of old exfoliated skin cells and encourage new skin cells to grow.  The stimulation to the smaller blood vessels in the facial skin is often immediately obvious because it brings a fresh baby pink glow to the face.

Microdermabrasion involves removing the superficial damaged layers in a non-invasive way.  These skin layers look healthier, and the thickness of the skin is improved. However, microdermabrasion works best if you attend a series of treatments so that the cells have the constant opportunity to renew and rejuvenate themselves. If you have acne scars or severe damage, microdermabrasion won’t be able to repair them because the skin tissue was damaged.  But microdermabrasion can help with healthier skin texture.

Whether you are getting microdermabrasion in a spa or using a home microdermabrasion kit, it is quite common and normal for the skin to suffer from some irritation and redness immediately after the treatment. This is due to the exfoliation of the skin, but it eventually leads to the birth of new skin cells. These new skin cells will cause wrinkled skin to look plumper, dull skin to look more vibrant and skin with acne scars to appear less pitted. 

For maximum results, you should avoid wearing makeup for a few days after a treatment so that you don’t hamper the renewal and healing of your newly abraded skin in any way. As microdermabrasion only removes the top superficial layers of the skin it is considered to be quite safe. The skin’s growth cycle is 28 days, therefore visiting the spa once per month for treatment is recommended.
