When factors like aging and sun exposure have significantly damaged your skin, you may need to use measures beyond over-the-counter products that you can buy in stores. Rather than undergo extensive facelift or scar removal surgery, however, you may prefer to use a less invasive procedure to regain your youthful good looks. Microdermabrasion could be your best option for improving the look, feel, and quality of your facial skin.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that is performed as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our office. The treatment itself is relatively comfortable and non-invasive. It involves the use of tiny crystals that are sprayed over the surface of your skin. The crystals exfoliate old, dead skin and make it possible for new skin cells to grow in its place.
Microdermabrasion is safe to use on all types of skin and can be an effective method for targeting brown and age spots, as well as dull skin. This procedure also requires little to no downtime and lets you progressively resume your normal activities.
The results of your microdermabrasion treatment can last for months and help you look younger for quite a while. In the first hours and days after the treatment, your skin will likely be pink and sensitive to the touch. However, this pinkness and sensitivity are temporary and minor.
What to Expect After Microdermabrasion
One of the great things about microdermabrasion is that the results tend to get better and better with some time. This is largely due to the fact that natural collagen production is stimulated during the treatment process. This means that in the weeks and months following the treatment, as more natural collagen is produced, the skin will continue to look healthier and more attractive overall.
