Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure targeted at removing dead cells, stimulating the production of more living cells to replace them, as well as the production of collagen to give skin a more supple look. Simply put, microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, laser-free, chemical-free and acid-free way of achieving healthier and younger skin. Using a deep exfoliation process to remove the uneven outer layer, this method rejuvenates the skin, plus treat various kinds of skin damages, including acne scars, spots, and blemishes, uneven skin color, large pores, and blackheads. It is considered generally safe for all types and colors of skin.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR MICRODERMABRASION?
Magic wand takes a new definition with this procedure, as it uses a handpiece that performs two tasks: first, it releases crystals called Corundum on the skin’s surface, that causes the gentle abrasion process. This removes the problematic top surface layer of the skin, revealing newer and smoother skin. Secondly, the device uses a vacuum process that suctions those exfoliating crystals back into the machine, along with the dead cells. It also causes stimulation of blood circulation, as well as the production of collagen to make skin smoother and improve its elasticity. You might feel a mild scratching as the procedure removes the superficial skin cells. Additionally, you will notice a vibrating sensation akin to a massage.
A session, usually conducted weekly, involves two treatments, lasting for an average of thirty to forty minute, depending on the thinness or thickness of the skin being treated.
Afterward, your healthcare provider may recommend a special moisturizer or facial product to enhance and prolong your result. Your skin will be more sensitive to sun exposure. Be sure to use sunscreen, especially immediately following a microdermabrasion session.
