- Deep Exfoliation
The wand used in microdermabrasion releases a jetstream of fine crystals that remove the superficial layer of skin, revealing newer, fresher skin underneath. Many patients are surprised at how much healthier and brighter-looking their skin appears after just one treatment. When performed by a qualified aesthetician, microdermabrasion is much more effective than at-home microdermabrasion kits.
- Boosts Collagen Production
Collagen, the protein that is responsible for density and elasticity, is stimulated during microdermabrasion treatments. Just one or two sessions can make your skin more taut and youthful-looking.
- Helps Heal Acne and Acne Scars
By removing the outer layer of skin, topical acne treatments can reach the deeper layers and work more effectively to treat and prevent acne. In addition, microdermabrasion can reduce the appearance of shallow scars caused by acne.
- Fades Stretch Marks
The process of microdermabrasion smooths the topmost layer of skin and encourages cell turnover, which can speed up the skin’s healing process and gradually make stretch marks less noticeable.
- Helps Erase Dark Patches
Hyperpigmentation (or melasma) causes a person to develop dark patches on their skin. During microdermabrasion, the fine crystals abrade off part of the melanin that is stuck in these dark patches. Some patients with melasma have seen noticeable improvements in the evenness of their skin in as little as two treatments.
- No Anesthesia or Recovery Time Required
Microdermabrasion is known as a “lunchtime treatment” because it only takes one hour from start to finish. And since there is no cutting or lasering involved, patients don’t need to receive anesthesia beforehand. Your skin may feel tight following the treatment, but this is normal, and it will return to normal in 24 hours or less. If you’re looking for a quick, easy, minimally-invasive way to refresh your skin, microdermabrasion is an ideal option!
