Microdermabrasion is considered skin polishing where the superficial layer of skin is gently abraded away giving an overall fresh healthy glow. Microdermabrasion is useful in treating dull skin and leathery skin, reduce mild acne scaring, smooth fine wrinkles, even skin tone and exfoliate plugged pores. Microdermabrasion stimulates the production of skin cells and collagen which gives the skin its youthful appearance. It is a good alternative for people with skin that is sensitive to chemical peels.
A machine with a closed vacuum device with a diamond tip is applied to the skin surface. The machine mixes the gentle abrasion of the particles with suction to remove the uppermost layer of dead skin cells. The skin debris is vacuumed back into the tube and filtered for disposal. The diamond tip gently polishes your face and the suction stimulates collagen production and blood flow. Treatments last about 30 minutes with monthly treatments recommended to achieve optimal results.
Some patients may experience mild redness, minor irritation and dryness after the procedure.
