Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure in which the skin is gently sanded, removing the thicker rough outer layer of cells/skin. The procedure utilizes a laser-cut diamond tip in combination with light suction. So how does microdermabrasion improve your skin?
When the top layer of skin is removed through microdermabrasion, the body interprets it as an injury. It reacts by replacing the lost skin cells with healthy, new cells, doing so more quickly than usual. It results in firmer, more toned, and more youthful-looking skin. Microdermabrasion has been found to be an effective treatment for wrinkles, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, melasma, hyperpigmentation, and scarring.
A common reason that many people use microdermabrasion is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that result from stress, sun damage, and natural aging. The location of your wrinkles and the number of treatments you receive will be a determining factor in how effective your results will be. Incorporating a moisturizer and toner into your skincare routine may help improve results.
Microdermabrasion may be used to treat hyperpigmentation, which can refer to melasma or any type of darker patches or age spots on the skin. However, you may need more than microdermabrasion treatments to see results for hyperpigmentation, such as laser therapy and topical vitamin C.
Microdermabrasion is not recommended for those with an active acne breakout or irritated skin, including blackheads. If you get blackheads often, though, it may be a way to shrink your pores. Some dermatologists recommend microdermabrasion as a treatment for making pores less visible and improving the skin’s conditioning.
Although microdermabrasion will not work on an active acne breakout, it may have a positive effect on it, depending on what triggers your acne. It has been demonstrated as an effective way to decrease the visibility of acne scars.
Microdermabrasion encourages cell turnover, speeding up your skin’s ability to heal. The treatment is especially effective when stretch marks first appear.
