Benefits Of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion helps improve the texture and smoothness of the skin, as well as promoting the production of fresh collagen and cells. When combined other cosmetic treatments it can be used to treat a wide range of skin problems including wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, flaking skin, enlarged pores, acne scars, pigmentation, dry skin and age spots.
What is the Microdermabrasion?
Actually, microdermabrasion is a light-cosmetic procedure and it involves an exfoliation’s mechanical medium in order to remove the outermost layer of the dead -skin cells.
Microdermabrasion combines tubing attached to a hand piece that simultaneously projects mineral crystals or other granules onto the skin, and provides variable levels of suction to remove the crystals along with dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin. Or in the case of a diamond tip type machine. The diamond tip machine uses vacuum suction but no crystals. Instead, the tip is textured with various sizes of diamond grit. The suction creates friction on the skin, resulting in physical exfoliation. There are no anesthetics needed for microdermabrasion. Speed as well as vacuum pressure is adjusted and depend on sensitivity as well as tolerance of skin.
No down time is needed after a treatment. You have a simple glow!
A microdermabrasion treatment may last from thirty to sixty minutes. After the treatment, most of the people return to their daily activities. A non-irritating cream as well as make up may be applied right after the microdermabrasion treatment.
How Often Should You Get A Treatment?
The benefits you get from a microdermabrasion treatment are not permanent.
The Stratum Corneum turns over rate is about 20 days in young adults, while in older adults, the Stratum Corneum regenerates at rate of thirty days or more. Consequently, treatments should be repeated at an interval of 2 - 4 weeks.
Multiple treatments along with protecting the skin with 30+ UVA/UVB sunscreen will produce the best results.
