What We Treat

What is Microdermabrasion and What Benefits Does it Provide?

Microdermabrasion is a chemical-free and non-invasive procedure that involves exfoliating the skin using small crystals and vacuum suction to peel dead skin cells that have collected on the skin’s outer layer over time.

This treatment treats uneven skin tone and texture, sun damage, stretch marks, skin redness, and acne scars to guarantee glowing and younger-looking skin.

Microdermabrasion is considered safe for all skin types and tones because it leaves no scars or discoloration. In addition, it is a painless procedure that does not involve using any medications or anesthetics.

If you’re looking for the best solution to healthier and vibrant skin with no downtime, microdermabrasion is a less invasive procedure than standard chemical peels, with a faster recovery process and excellent results!

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

Microdermabrasion sessions usually take 30–60 minutes to be complete, and our skilled dermatologists at Novomed will cleanse your skin and provide you with safety glasses before your treatment begins.

Your doctor will move a crystal-tipped wand all over your skin to shoot pressured crystals against the epidermis (the outer skin surface) to exfoliate it thoroughly. Meanwhile, the built-in vacuum will help remove blackheads and gunk, address clogged pores, and strip away dead skin cells, making your skin cleaner and brighter.

Our specialists may gently rub a soothing lotion into your skin after treatment to reduce irritation and redness. The procedure will be carried out at the convenience of our clinics, and you’ll be able to resume your regular activity as soon as it is over.

Please note that this treatment might require several sessions spaced out by at least one week to help the skin heal. However, patients with sensitive skin might need up to 8 weeks to fully recover.

Microdermabrasion Benefits

Although microdermabrasion is most commonly used on the face, it can also be used on the neck, chest, back, and hands to achieve the following:

Boosting Collagen Production to Smooth Wrinkles

Ageing, genetics, stress, and photoaging (sun damage) all contribute to collagen reduction, which causes the skin to lose flexibility and firmness over time, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. Microdermabrasion treatments promote collagen production to fill in and smooth wrinkles and fine lines for youthful and shining skin.

However, microdermabrasion effectiveness will vary depending on the depth of your wrinkles and the number of sessions you get. Your dermatologist might recommend a facelift for better results.

Improving Absorption Rate

Microdermabrasion helps unclog pores, reduce their size, improve blood circulation, and remove dead skin, increasing the absorption of skincare products by up to 50%. This implies that if you’re using a cream/serum to treat a skin condition, your skin will be more responsive to it, and you’ll get better results.

Treating Acne And Large Pores

Large pores may result from several skin issues, such as sun exposure, oil build-up, collagen loss, and harsh chemical products. In addition to being an aesthetic issue, large pores contribute to acne and skin breakouts.

Microdermabrasion is an excellent solution to exfoliate and suck the extra gunk and oil out of your pores, making them less visible less likely to become clogged in the long term.

Reducing Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are common side effects of significant and rapid weight fluctuations, particularly during or after pregnancy. Microdermabrasion is proven to be an efficient treatment for reducing stretch marks in certain body areas, especially when combined with (PRP) therapy.

Reducing Scars

Microdermabrasion can help treat permanent scars caused by acne, surgery, or accidents. This procedure will work around the uneven scar edges to minimize their size and reduce hyperpigmentation that makes them noticeable.

While scars may require more sessions to get the expected results, microdermabrasion treatment provides excellent outcomes without the pain or prolonged recovery times that other cosmetic treatments need.
