Microdermabrasion: What is it and what are the benefits?

For centuries, people have been looking for the secret to perfect skin. At some point or another, various substances have been used to peel, exfoliate, and rejuvenate the skin. Such substances include acids, compounds from minerals and plants, even sandpaper and fire- like materials! With the advancements in modern technology, less intrusive methods of skin resurfacing have emerged; Microdermabrasion is one of them.

Developed in Italy in 1985, microdermabrasion is a quick, low risk procedure in which skin is “sandblasted” to remove the top layer of the skin while promoting the production of new skin cells in the deepest layer of the dermis. This procedure also promotes collagen production, which is a protein in the skin that we start to lose with age. Lack of collagen in the skin results in fine lines, wrinkles, as well as the universally dreaded “crows feet.” This procedure not only evens out the skin, but if used on a regular basis, can help prevent future break outs.

Benefits of microdermabrasion include:

  • Mobilized collagen production
  • Fades the appearance of scars
  • Evens out fine lines and wrinkles
  • Works for all skin colors and types
  • Clears pores
  • Prevents future break outs
  • Gives skin that fresh, healthy glow
  • Rejuvenates cell production within the skin
  • Works for skin with Hiperseborrea or Hiperqueratosis actinic
  • No recovery time needed; go ahead and resume your daily activities

Sure, by now you’re thinking that microdermabrasion is a miracle procedure and you’re absolutely right, however it is not a one-time thing miracle. In order to achieve the best results, microdermabrasion must be done in a series. Its not possible to put a number on that series right away because not everyone’s skin changes differently; we all react differently to stress, the environment, food, and hormonal changes. The standard treatment is usually repeated around 5-8 times in 2 week intervals.

Although microdermabrasion is a relatively simple procedure, it is VERY important that it is performed by licensed esthetician who is certified for microdermabrasion .
