How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical treatment for renewing skin. The treatment can be performed on many areas of the body, including on the back, hands, and chest, but is primarily used to improve facial complexion. The main purpose of microdermabrasion is to exfoliate the top layers of skin; this treatment is mechanical, not chemical, such as in the case of chemical peels.
Microdermabrasion is completed in two parts, both of which work perfectly together to rejuvenate the treated area. The first part of the process involves the use of a handheld machine with small crystals. These are designed to very gently remove the upper layer of skin via a process of polishing and buffering.
Once the skin has been exfoliated, the second part of the treatment can begin. This part of the treatment uses suction to remove dead skin cells and any other debris from the skin. After the old skin cells have been removed, the body will begin to replace them with a new layer of skin. The end result is smoother, brighter, and cleaner skin.
The two-part process can be completed quickly and is completely non-invasive; there are no chemicals used or incisions made. Over the course of multiple treatments, the appearance of the skin will improve, and you’ll notice a large number of benefits to the look and feel of the treated area of skin.
The Benefits of Microdermabrasion
There are a number of reasons why people choose to undergo a course of microdermabrasion treatments; for some people the reasons are unhappiness with facial blemishes or premature signs of aging, and for others, the reasons are very different. No matter why you’re considering microdermabrasion, there are a substantial number of benefits that you can look forward to from the treatment, including:
• Microdermabrasion is considerably safer than many of the alternative skin treatments. There are few risks with microdermabrasion, and the treatment and recovery aren’t painful.
• After microdermabrasion, the absorption of skin products is greatly increased, making everyday skincare routines much more effective.
• The elasticity and health of the skin is increased as microdermabrasion improves circulation, allowing a greater quantity of nutrients and oxygen to reach to skin cells.
• Microdermabrasion can unclog pores, leading to a cleaner and fresher facial appearance.
• Pores that have grown larger due to external influences, such as inflammation, can be reduced during microdermabrasion treatment.
• The appearance of stretch marks and scars, and particularly scars from acne, can be improved due to the improvement in blood flow after microdermabrasion.
• Fine lines and wrinkles will be softened after multiple treatments, improving the texture of the treated skin.
• Discoloration of the skin can be reduced during a course of microdermabrasion treatment.
• Microdermabrasion can give the skin a healthy glow, making the face look younger and fresher.

How Many Treatments Will Be Required?

In many cases an average of 6 to 12 treatments will be needed to see a significant change to the texture and appearance of the skin. Normally, these treatments are scheduled at least every month, with intervals of 2-4 weeks being common.
Is Microdermabrasion Similar to Dermabrasion?
The procedure involved in microdermabrasion is very different to the procedure for dermabrasion. Whilst dermabrasion involves the removal of multiple layers of skin, microdermabrasion treatment is designed to exfoliate the outer layer of skin in a gentle way, making the skin smoother and fresher with no pain or extensive recovery times.
Is Microdermabrasion Safe?
Microdermabrasion is considered to be a very safe procedure and is suitable for all types of skin. There’s no risk of scarring or permanent changes to the skin during microdermabrasion, which is why many people choose this non-invasive treatment over the alternative skin rejuvenation treatments available.
Who Isn’t Suitable for Microdermabrasion?
Most people can have microdermabrasion treatment without concern, however, there are some instances where your consultant may suggest a different treatment. People with large scars, deep wrinkles, or other major blemishes may not benefit as greatly from microdermabrasion as those with minor blemishes. In some cases where a patient has very sensitive skin, microdermabrasion may not be recommended as the best treatment.
