Microdermabrasion works on all skin types and colors making subtle changes, causing no skin color change or scarring. It is not effective for deeper problems such as scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, or deep acne scars.
With microdermabrasion, there is less down time than with dermabrasion. Skin is temporarily pink but fully recovers within 24 hours. It doesn’t require surgery or anesthetics. That may help people who cannot take “down time” for healing.
In a dermabrasion consultation, you’ll discuss your goals, and instructions to follow before and after dermabrasion and perhaps have “before” photos taken to compare with your results later.
In Microdermabrasion, tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin to gently remove the outer layer of your skin. This technique is less aggressive than dermabrasion, so you don’t need numbing medicine. It is basically an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that leaves skin looking softer and brighter.
After Microdermabrasion, your skin will be pink and feel dry and tight (like sunburn or windburn) for about 24 hours. Use moisturizer. Some types of makeup should not be applied for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments you can receive. Its benefits are many: microderm softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring, decreases pore size, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation also known as surface discoloration. Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion also enables high-tech skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin to help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful, supple appearance.
Microdermabrasion is essentially a powerful mechanical exfoliation that removes the uppermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, chest hands and body. Professional microdermabrasion gives results you can’t achieve with an at home microdermabrasion kit, which is an aggressive scrub for the face that is often too abrasive and causes damage to the skin.
