Nothing is more requested nowadays than Microdermabrasion. People are simply mad for this non-invasive and effective treatment. Yet the question remains: What is microdermabrasion and is it right for you?
Microdermabrasion utilizes a minimally abrasive instrument to exfoliate your skin. This sanding process removes the thicker, uneven outer layer. Depending on the machine, this may be a crystal micro which sprays exfoliating crystals across your face, or a diamond tip micro, which uses a diamond tip wand.
What can this treatment help with? Here are four benefits:
1. Improve post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (that's just a fancy way of saying it helps diminish any leftover scarring or discoloration from previous acne spots)
2. Exfoliates your Skin
3. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
4. Reduces blackheads by removing the dead skin that clogs our pores
After just one treatment you will feel smoother and refreshed. But to truly receive the above benefits from microdermabrasion you need a series of treatments, usually 6-10 is recommended.
Is there downtime with microdermabrasion? No. you may experience a little pinkness after your treatment and in some cases minimal flakiness on your skin. However, depending on your skin type you may have no redness at all! After your treatment, make sure to use sunscreen regularly, avoid waxing, and avoid any topical treatments such as Retin-A
