Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scars, melasma, and other skin-related problems and conditions. Microdermabrasion is a dermatological procedure that gently removes the top layer of the skin. It is used to even out skin tones, attenuate acne scars, and brighten a dull complexion.
Microdermabrasion works by removing some of the upper layers of the skin called the stratum corneum. Like brushing your teeth, Microderm helps to gently remove plaque and debris from the skin. Since human skin normally regenerates at intervals of approximately 30 days, skin improvement with microdermabrasion is temporary and must be repeated at average intervals of two to four weeks to achieve continuous improvement. Multiple treatments in combination with sunscreen, sunscreen and other skin care creams produce the best results.
In microdermabrasion, tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin to gently remove the outer layer of the skin. This technique is less aggressive than dermabrasion, so there is no need for anesthetic medications. It's basically an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that leaves the skin looking smoother and brighter. These homemade microdermabrasion kits often can't provide the depth of skin abrasion or remove dead skin cells by vacuuming them like professional microdermabrasion.
Most home microdermabrasion machines and kits are generally weaker than professional in-office treatments. You can find microdermabrasion and exfoliating machines online or at cosmetic stores. Microdermabrasion is a very safe procedure for most people (although there are some people who shouldn't have microdermabrasion treatment).
