Microdermabrasion uses tiny exfoliating crystals applied directly to the skin to scrub away old cells in order to make way for a new, smoother, healthier layer of skin to replace the treated area. This treatment excels at dealing with problems like brown spots, dull skin, and age spots. Microdermabrasion is a less aggressive form of treatment compared to dermabrasion, so no numbing medication or anesthesia is required. The treatment offers a deep exfoliation and skin rejuvenation that will leave your skin looking softer and brighter than before.
Microdermabrasion treatment works on all skin colors and types. The treatment makes subtle changes to the surface of your skin, resulting in no changes to the color of your skin or the development of any unsightly scarring. However, the treatment is less effective at treating deeper skin problems, such as stretch marks, deep acne scars, or wrinkles.
After the treatment, your skin will appear pink and feel tight and dry, similar to how it feels after a sunburn. Recovery time from microdermabrasion treatment is quick, with the surface of your skin healing in just 24 hours. The procedure is so quick and painless that it doesn’t even require the use of an anesthetic. This makes microdermabrasion an excellent treatment option for patients who can't afford to take time off for healing. To aid the healing process, try using a moisturizer to help soothe your skin during the 24 hours following treatment, while also avoiding the use of certain makeups until after your skin has had a chance to recover.
