Microdermabrasion is touted as the secret weapon for a youthful looking skin. It is a minimally invasive treatment that exfoliates the dead skin cells and kick-starts the proliferation of new skin cells, making you look your best. This technique is highly effective as it combines vacuum suction with tiny abrasive crystals to polish and resurface the skin. If you wish to get a lighter and even skin tone, consider Microdermabrasion today!
In order to prepare your skin for the treatment, your dermatologist will cleanse and defat your skin. Then, with the help of a handheld device your dermatologist will spray tiny aluminum-oxide crystals that generate a specific pressurized effect to buff away the surface of your skin. An attached vacuum simultaneously suctions the dead skin cells along with the exfoliating crystals.
You may need a Microdermabrasion if you
- Have a sun-damaged or discolored skin
- Have age spots, acne scars or clogged pores
- Suffer from uneven skin pigmentation
- Suffer from skin texture problems
- Have surface acne
- Have a dull complexion
- Have fine lines and wrinkles
You are eligible for a Microdermabrasion if you
- Are a healthy adult and have relatively minor skin conditions or imperfections
- Have a skin that is sensitive to chemicals
- Have a clear understanding of the technique and a reasonable expectation of the results
Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types. However, the minor risks associated with this technique are infection, hyper pigmentation, temporary discoloration, sun sensitivity, allergic skin rashes or reactions, scarring, flaking and redness.
You will notice a visible improvement in your skin tone and texture even after the first Microdermabrasion treatment. However, lasting results are achieved through a series of sessions performed over the course of several weeks.
A soft, supple and blemish-free skin has been the bench mark of beauty since time immemorial. Exfoliate and suck up those dead skin cells. Go for a Microdermabrasion - a key to a velvety smooth skin! No wonder, it is touted as an “instant face-lift”, because it is one of the instant gratification treatments that stay with you.
