What is Microdermabrasion?
A microdermabrasion is a mild yet effective exfoliation treatment that gently sands the skin. This treatment is perfect for routine skin care maintenance or for those patients who need to prep their skin for more aggressive skin care treatments. During your microdermabrasion treatment, your aesthetician will be using a device that utilizes vacuum technology to remove debris and cleanse the skin. Simultaneously, aluminum oxide crystals can be released at high speed during your treatment to encourage this cleansing and exfoliation process. In about 30 minutes, the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells is removed revealing fresh and vibrant looking skin.
Who Should Consider Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that can be the perfect addition to anyone’s skin care regimen because the procedure is safe and effective for all skin types. Since no chemicals are used, it is a compelling choice for those who have topical sensitivities or for women who are either pregnant or nursing.
Medical grade serums can be applied directly after microdermabrasion for maximum absorption such as hyaluronic acid or Vitamin C. Like other exfoliation methods, the benefits of dermaplaning are most evident when performed on a consistent basis as part of your healthy skincare regimen.
Recovery From Microdermabrasion
Patients may have some mild pinkness of the skin in the treatment areas immediately after their microdermabrasion treatment, but this pinkness will typically dissipate within a few hours. The skin will immediately feel lighter and smoother with greater effects apparent after each subsequent treatment. Oftentimes we will recommend post-treatment skin care products to help promote a smooth and youthful complexion and to enhance your results between appointments.
