Microdermabrasion has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures out there. With the passage of time, sun damage, genetics, aging, or other forms of damage can alter the appearance and texture of your skin. Microdermabrasion can assist in reducing these types of damage, leading to youthful-looking skin that is much smoother.
In the past, your skin treatment choices were restricted to types of surgery. Today, patients have more choices than ever before when it comes to skin rejuvenation. Non-surgical cosmetic techniques have quickly risen to become the treatment of choice for many patients. These methods offer the advantages of less downtime and fewer complications.
You may want to consider this form of treatment if you are looking to brighten your complexion and enjoy a healthy skin glow. It is also suitable for those with light acne scars, sun damage, or fine lines and wrinkles. Other patients use the treatment for clogged pores and to maintain clear, healthy skin.
It is important to understand what the treatment can do and what it cannot do. The treatment offers immediate results with no real side effects or downtime. It helps to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and sunspots. The treatment is safe and effective for all skin tones and types.
How It Works
The stratum corneum layer of skin is composed of non-living material like lipids and cell matter that create a barrier against pathogens, injuries, and pollutants. Constant skin cell turnover is needed for the epidermis skin layer to serve its functions effectively. Skin cells are constantly migrating from lower levels to the stratum corneum, where they are eventually shed.
In some cases, the process of skin cell maturation is slow enough to allow for an accumulation of dead skin cells at the skin surface, leading to the appearance of dull, dehydrated skin. The treatment works by removing this blockage, leading to a brighter appearance.
