Microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliation that removes the uppermost layer of dead skin that takes a beating from the sun and effects of aging from the face, chest and hands. A device like a fine sandblaster is used to spray tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin. For best results, it is recommended to get a series of treatments to encourage collagen and elasting growth, further improving skin appearance, and use in conjunction with anti-aging skincare products. Extractions can be performed if needed to get rid of blackheads.
There is no recovery time from Microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a great procedure to undergo during your lunch hour.
How Long Does this Procedure Take?
Microdermabrasion treatments only last for about 30-45 minutes. The number of Microderm treatments required is based on the severity of the skin condition, but many medical spas, laser clinics, and aesthetic professionals sell treatment packages of 5-6.
Microdermabrasion Side Effects:
You can expect a slight dryness and flaking for a few days after your Microdermabrasion treatment.
Length of Microdermabrasion Results:
The duration of your Microdermabrasion results should be fairly long lasting, however, it depends on the severity of the skin damage and the number of treatments received. While you may require up to 2 treatments per month initially; with time many, people require only one treatment a month as a part of a consistent skin care routine.
Will I feel pain or discomfort after treatment?
You should not feel any pain or discomfort during your Microdermabrasion treatment. If you have extra sensitive skin, your Microdermabrasion provider may suggest some soothing moisturizers to use after treatment to make sure your skin is properly hydrated.
Microdermabrasion can be combined with Chemical peel.
