Do you ever look in the mirror and wish that your face had a more even skin tone? If you answered yes, you may want to consider microdermabrasion. This non-invasive treatment gently exfoliates your skin. After a series of treatments, your complexion can appear smoother, brighter, and more even in color.
The microdermabrasion that is performed in a dermatology office differs from the one that you can do at home with a kit. A dermatologist treatment goes a bit deeper into the skin. Still, the procedure is safe for all skin colors.
Microdermabrasion appeals to many patients. They like that they can see more youthful skin without having downtime.
What does Microdermabrasion treat?
- Dull complexion
- Uneven or rough textured skin
- Age spots
- Clogged pores, acne (superficial)
- Superficial scars
Dermatologists also use microdermabrasion to improve the results gained from using anti-aging products and skin-bleaching products. Microdermabrasion allows these products to penetrate the skin more easily.
What happens during microdermabrasion
A handheld device is gently moved across the top layers of the skin. You may feel a sanding sensation, but this is considered comfortable by most. Afterward, a moisturizer and sunscreen are applied.
When will I see results from microdermabrasion
Although the skin will look and feel smoother after one treatment, most people need a series of treatments to see their best results. After a series of treatments, patients say their skin feels smoother and they notice a more radiant complexion.
How long will the results last?
The results tend to be temporary. Patients who protect their skin from the sun and follow the recommended skin-care plan will maintain their results for a longer time. Yet, no matter what we do, our skin continues to age. Follow-up treatments are usually necessary to help retain smoother skin and a more radiant complexion.
