Microdermabrasion, also known as microderm, is one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments you can get. Its benefits are many: microderm softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring, decreases pore size, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots.
Microdermabrasion also makes it easier for high-tech skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.
Microdermabrasion is a technique for removing the topmost layer of skin leaving it supple and vibrant. The microdermabrasion wands with diamond tips remove this layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips, while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner. Removing this outer layer of dead skin cells leaves a smoother texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells.
Microdermabrasion using wands with diamond tips (machanical exfoliation) is similar to particle microdermabrasion and chemical peels in its results but without the adverse effects of loose particles, irritation and skin reaction. Microdermabrasion is a viable alternative to laser or chemical peels because it is non-invasive, non-surgical and requires no down time after treatment. Normal activities may be resumed immediately. Your skin will have a radiant glow, free of irritation and loose particles. Patients experience softer, smoother and cleaner skin after the first treatment. Treatment series vary from four to ten sessions depending on the condition being treated and the type of skin.
Microdermabrasion treatments using a hand piece with diamond tips are virtually painless yet effective. The degree of effectiveness is controlled by a widely adjustable vacuum in conjunction with the varying coarseness of the diamond-tipped wands. Your skin care professional is trained to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatment while at the same time ensuring your comfort.
Acne sufferers can see quality results with Microdermabrasion treatments because of the procedure’s ability to unclog pores and clear away dirt, oil, and dead skin. This removes much of acne’s damage while also allowing the skin to heal more quickly. Furthermore, when dead skin cells are removed, acne-causing bacteria cannot survive as easily. While every patient’s situation is unique, most people experience obvious, posituve changes in their skin’s tone and texture after after just one Microderm session, and a noticeable reduction in skin imperfections in as little as two sessions.
