So what exactly is microdermabrasion, what does it promise and what effect does it actually have on your face? Do you need a doctor, or is it something you can do yourself? In this article, we’ll look at the science behind microdermabrasion, see what a treatment is like and find out what it does to your skin.
Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. Many different products and treatments use this method, including medical procedures, salon treatments and creams and scrubs that you apply yourself at home. It’s usually done to the face, chest, neck, arms or hands. Before we can understand how microdermabrasion does what it does, it’s important to understand how skin works.
Your skin is made up of two main layers, the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is the layer closest to the outside world. It’s a set of dead skin cells on top of another layer of cells that are in the process of maturing. The topmost layer is called the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum mostly acts as a barrier between the outside world and the lower skin layers. It keeps all but the smallest molecules from getting through.
Microderm abrasion is done with two methods:
The treatment method can be administered with crystal microdermabrasion technology or diamond-tip technology. The use of diamond-tip technology is the newest method for treating skin conditions like acne. Treatments like this are usually performed in specialized clinics by providers who are licensed to administer this type of treatment.
The treatment process may include multiple sessions to achieve the best results. The treatments are usually spaced anywhere between 10 to 14 days apart. Once the series of treatments are completed, the person will begin to see the mild redness or even bruising. As the redness and bruising subsides, the skin renewal process begins. It takes approximately one month for the new skin to grow in the areas being treated.
Our office uses diamond microdermabrasion exclusively as the depth of penetration is well controlled and the complication rate is low to nonexistant.The effects of microdermabrasion are directly influenced by the skill of the practitioner. Microdermabrasion is an important method of reducing skin impurities, clogged pores, oily skin, and resurfacing superficial skin irregularities.
Diamond microdermabrasion system results are excellent for normal to oily skin.
we normally put lotions or creams after the treatment so some of the moisture and useful ingredients can pass through the skin and nourish it.
The treatment focuses on the epidermis layer of the skin. The treatment is used to treat conditions like hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines and mild scarring resulting from acne.
The conditions treated with microdermabrasion tend to affect the outermost layer of the skin. People with more severe scarring or other skin conditions may be directed toward alternative treatment methods which are also available in our clinic.
Treating facial skin is one of the more popular ways microdermabrasion is treated; however, it can be used to treat other areas as well. It can be used to treat the neck area, back, upper and lower extremities, and stomach as well.
We normally prefer to offer a combination of options in hyperpigmentation and skin rejuvenation treatment. this includes skin masks and special lotions or creams to maximize the treatment effects. these additional treatments are optional and have their own charges.
