Dermatology and spa services provide you with ample opportunities to get the healthy, glowing, and youthful skin of your dreams. Microdermabrasion is one of the techniques professionals use to help you achieve this. A common step in an exfoliating facial, it helps smooth the skin and remove impurities. If you’ve never heard of this option before, here’s what you should know about this treatment and its benefits.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion involves applying tiny crystals to slough off the top layer of the skin, also known as the epidermis. When this surface is removed, the skin replaces the cells with new, healthy ones.
There are two main types of microdermabrasion. One utilizes a wand, and another applies pressurized granules to the skin. Both forms are natural, gentle, and do not require medications or anesthetic. As the esthetician or dermatologist removes dead and damaged skin, they use a small vacuum to clear these particles from the face, leaving it clean and smooth. This treatment is more effective than over-the-counter exfoliants and masks because it provides a deeper clean.
What Are Its Benefits?
Unlike traditional dermabrasion, which may only work for people with lighter skin tones, microdermabrasion facials are beneficial for many different skin types and tones. In less than 30 minutes, skin texture will be removed, which will give you a more youthful appearance and may address oily skin, minimal acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and clogged pores. To maximize its effects, this option can be paired with complementary treatments, such as chemical peel facials and specialized creams designed for your skin type and condition.
