Microdermabrasion or Skin polishing is a safe, simple and painless way of getting that glowing skin you always wanted with almost no downtime. This procedure which can be done during your lunch time promises to polish away your dull outer skin to reveal the much younger and radiant skin underneath.
In microdermabrasion, usually tiny crystals are gently blown on the skin and the dull and dead skin layers are vacuumed off. This treatment works best on acne scars, dull skin, age spots and on fine lines and wrinkles. As the dead layers of skin get exfoliated, the new skin production gets stimulated. An increase in the blood flow adds to the glow on the skin, making this a popular pre party treatment.
If you are looking for a safe method for regular skin maintenance, then Microdermabrasion may be the answer for you. Microdermabrasion can treat acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and rejuvenate dry and dull looking skin. Microdermabrasion can be effectively used over the skin of the face and body, and used to smooth skin over the shoulders, back and arms.
Microdermabrasion is a very safe treatment. No pain is involved, and it is a commonly performed procedure in the Dermatologist’s office every day. It is safe for all skin types, including sensitive ones.
Microdermabrasion is a minor treatment for mechanically exfoliating the skin. The skin feels sensitive upto 24 hours after treatment, and thereafter settles down to reveal a warm glow. The new skin feels smoother, looks more radiant. However, you will need more than one treatment to maintain the results and build up better skin.
Skin polishing can leave the skin a little sensitive, using a moisturiser will usually take care of any dryness or redness. Most patients feel their skin return to normal within 24 hours of treatment. Do not forget to use your sun screen post treatment.
Many microdermabrasion kits are available, however, the results they yield may not be as effective as that of a medical Microdermabrasion. The irregular size of the crystals may actually harm your skin by making microcuts into it; choose wisely and see a Dermatologist instead.
Though Microdermabrasion is a relatively simple treatment, make sure to choose a Dermatologist to initiate the treatment. These physicians are qualified to make sure that you are ready to undergo the treatment, and will advise you on the correct home care to make the most of these treatments.
