How Microdermabrasion Works

How Microdermabrasion Works

Microdermabrasion is one of the most commonly used techniques to fight a number of common skin conditions such as acne and age spots. The process works by taking microcrystals and removing the outermost layer of skin through friction and intense exfoliation. The non-chemical formula naturally revitalizes your skin by removing old, dry material and replacing it with newer, younger skin. The microdermabrasion process is less intense than the original dermabrasion procedure. By using crystal technology, the patient does not need numbing medication treatment. For adults that are unable to take several weeks for recovery, microdermabrasion may be an option that provides quick results and less healing time.

What to Expect with Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that can remove unsightly blemishes or treat common skin conditions. For many men and women, oily skin, acne, and wrinkles can cause embarrassment in their personal and professional lives. The microdermabrasion technique can provide the following benefits to help alleviate negative feelings about your appearance:

  • Healthier looking skin
  • Younger appearance
  • Less acne scaring
  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smaller pores

Side effects of microdermabrasion are minimal. The skin may be red and tight for the following 24 hours after the procedure. The feeling will be similar to a windburn, with the skin feeling dry and sensitive. However, there should be little to no irritation of the skin due to the more gentle nature of the process.
