What is Microdermabrasion?

Acne Facial Treatment

Microdermabrasion is a gentle yet effective anti-aging and skin clarifying process that is suitable for most skin types. During microdermabrasion, tiny crystals are blasted onto the top most layer of the skin known as the epidermis. The epidermis contains the first several layers of skin, and it is located above the deeper dermis layer. As the crystals exfoliate the skin, they are sucked back up into the hose, removing dead skin cells and dirt. This service is not a medical procedure, and there is no numbing cream needed. While there is no downtime with microdermabrasion, though skin may be mildly ruddy or have minor swelling in the hours after the service.

How can microdermabrasion help the skin?

The goal of microdermabrasion is to rejuvenate skin at the first layer of the epidermis. This layer houses breakouts, blackheads, light acne scars, sun spots, and some fine wrinkles. By removing a fine layer of skin cells, this damage is removed from the skin. As the skin recovers from this minor damage, a smoother and better looking layer is revealed. This change is due to both the removal of dead skin and an increase in collagen in the new skin. A single microdermabrasion treatment will improve the skin, however, the results of monthly sessions are greater. The treatment also can reduce breakouts and help clear acne-prone skin.

Microdermabrasion as part of an anti-aging regimen

Regular treatments are an important part of any anti-aging regimen. For those with sensitive skin, microdermabrasion is a mild and painless service that improves the face. Regular microdermabrasion followed by the recommended usage of sunscreen can, over time, prevent fine lines and dullness as a person ages. With any face treatment, daily use of a sunscreen over 15 SPF is essential. One of the biggest causes of aging is the UVA and UVB rays that are absorbed by the skin when we are outside. To protect against future damage, daily sunscreen is a must along with regular microdermabrasion treatments. While those looking for dramatic results for deeper skin damage would be better served by a laser photofacial or chemical peel, microdermabrasion treatments do make a difference.
