Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin refreshing procedure that uses a spray of tiny crystals to remove the outermost layers of the skin that contains skin cells that are dead, dull, or dry or have become clogged by environmental pollution and dirt. Microdermabrasion also increases the production of collagen and elastin, tightening your skin and improving its quality.
As the crystals gently abrade the skin and slough off skin cells, a vacuum simultaneously suctions away the discarded dead cells, revealing new skin.
Microdermabrasion is an excellent option for treating sun-damaged skin. Other ideal candidates are patients with light to moderate acne scars or skin that has dulled over time from because of the aging process.
Microdermabrasion can make significant improvements in the quality and appearance of the skin. To maximize results, patients should have repeated microdermabrasion sessions every 4 to 6 weeks, or combine them with another skin rejuvenation procedure like a chemical peel or laser skin rejuvenation. Microdermabrasion can be performed on the face, neck, chest, and hands. After the procedure, the skin is sensitive to the sun for 7 to 10 days, so it is critical that patients wear sunscreen to protect the new skin.
