Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that rejuvenates your skin by improving its overall tone and texture, making you look younger. It is a simple and gentle treatment for sensitive skin that can be used on the face, neck, and chest.
Microdermabrasion scrapes the dull and tired superficial skin layers using microcrystals without causing discomfort or harm to the skin layers underneath. This treatment works by activating your skin’s regenerative abilities rather than injecting chemicals. Your body will replace dead and weary skin cells with healthier and fresher ones after the treatment.
Am I a suitable candidate for this treatment?
People with lighter skin tones can benefit from microdermabrasion. If you have a darker skin tone, your dermatologist may suggest a skin peel or HydraFacial as alternatives to achieve more youthful and glowing skin.
You may want to consider getting the treatment if you have any of the following skin-related issues: sun damage, wrinkles, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, stretch marks, UV damage, and discoloration.
What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion can exfoliate your skin and provide you with a more youthful appearance by:
- Stimulating the collagen in your skin.
- Revealing new skin that is healthy and radiant.
- Increasing blood circulation and improving skin texture
- Reducing the appearance of blackheads and large pores.
- Decreasing unsightly pigmentation marks caused by acne or sun exposure.
What to expect during the consultation?
During the consultation, our expert dermatologist will go over your medical history and analyze your skin to determine the suitable treatment for your skin. They will also discuss the likely outcomes of microdermabrasion, explain all its potential side effects, and recommend the best treatment to help you accomplish your goals.
Your dermatologist may advise you to avoid sun exposure, waxing, and tanning creams for about a week before treatment. You should also follow the medication directions given by the doctor to avoid any complications.
Make sure to discuss your skin concerns with your dermatologist and ask them any questions you may have, so you can make an informed decision and have a clear understanding of the treatment and its result.
What happens during microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is usually performed on the face and neck but can also be performed on other skin areas.
The specialist will use a hand-held machine to spray microcrystals over your skin to remove the surface layer of dull and dead skin cells. The microcrystals are hard enough to remove tired skin cells that cause dull-looking skin but small enough not to damage or cause discomfort or pain. As the process eliminates the surface skin cells, you may experience slight scratching. You’ll also feel a vibrating feeling like that of a massage.
What to expect after microdermabrasion?
After the first session, you can expect to see noticeable improvement right away, and your polished new look should last a long time. Your skin will feel softer, and you will notice a subtle improvement that will last for up to three months. However, due to the progressive nature of the treatment, we propose a series of sessions for optimal results and long-term outcomes. The number of sessions required will be determined based on your skin condition and cosmetic goals.
After microdermabrasion, there is minimal to no downtime; you should be able to resume your usual activities right away; you can go back to work and apply make-up. Remember to use sunscreen on your newly revitalized skin to prevent sun damage. You should also use gentle skincare products and keep your skin nourished. Our expert will guide you on how to maintain the effects of the treatment.
