Many people are turning to microdermabrasion as a non-surgical way to clear their skin from acne scars and other unwanted skin conditions. This procedure has been shown to be an effective treatment against wrinkles and sunspots. What makes microdermabrasion so powerful is its ability to gently exfoliate the top layers of the skin. Patients are attracted this procedure because it does not require the use of lasers, and no chemicals are used.
The exfoliation is done using micro-crystals. When the procedure is done, you are left with skin that is fresh and smooth. The exfoliation process produced by microdermabrasion stimulates your body’s natural healing abilities. This includes an increased production of collagen. As your body makes more collagen, it encourages your skin to heal faster than it normally would.
The microdermabrasion procedure is relatively straightforward. First, your skin is cleansed. Then the tiny micro-crystals are directed at your skin. At the same time, controlled vacuum suction is used to remove the dead skin cells and the micro-crystals.
Once the procedure is complete, you can simply return to your daily activities. There is no downtime required, and so there is no interruption in your schedule; there are only positive results that will last for a long time. The treatments can be repeated at our office as needed for ongoing benefits.
Sometimes people confuse microdermabrasion and dermabrasion. The two treatments work on the same principle, but they are carried out in different ways. During a dermabrasion procedure, a powered handheld device is used to basically sand off the top layers of the skin. Because of how rough the procedure is, it is usually performed under general or local anesthesia. Microdermabrasion is not nearly as invasive. It does produce powerful results, but it does not remove so much skin that you will be sensitive to touch for multiple days.
