Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that exfoliates the skin and removes the outermost defected and dead skin layer. With the help of sprays or rubs fine crystals, the skin is exfoliated with a wand that gently works on the skin surface, removing the top layer. The aim is to make the skin appear younger by removing dead cells and debris and stimulating collagen production through micro-injuries to the skin. The procedure is non-surgical, does not hurt too much, and takes 30-40 minutes for the face and approximately 20 minutes for the neck. Afterward, there may be slight swelling or sunburn-like symptoms for a few days. This versatile skin treatment addresses various skin concerns, including acne scars, pigmentation, poor texture, uneven skin tone, and aging signs.
The treatment results depend primarily upon the skin condition and how worse the damage is. Still, Microdermabrasion allows the clients to address most of their skin concerns with a minimum of 3 to 4 sessions. However, aging signs are more deeply rooted and may require more sessions, but the results promise evident results.
The Basics Of Microdermabrasion
Simply put, Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation process that gently removes the outer layer of your skin, where the dull, dead skin cells lie. The treatment uses tiny crystals that break up these cells to reveal the smoother, softer skin underneath. The crystals are gently worked into your skin by a handheld device. You can remove dead skin from your face and neck without damaging the fresh, healthy skin below.
Microdermabrasion: Long-term Uses and Benefits
Microdermabrasion is safe and effective for all skin types. The exfoliating crystals are delicate and won’t cause damage to your skin. Since microdermabrasion requires no incisions or anesthesia, there’s no risk of scarring or infection. Treatment is painless and can take an hour or less. After just your first microdermabrasion treatment, you can expect to see brighter, more vibrant skin. Additional treatments may be necessary to help you optimize your results.

- Dullness in the complexion

Dermatologists may also use microdermabrasion to enhance the results of anti-aging or skin-bleaching products. The procedure can help these products penetrate the skin better. People can have microdermabrasion treatments every two weeks or monthly, depending on their skin type and the reason for treatment. Most people request microdermabrasion to rejuvenate the complexion of the face and neck, but a specialist can perform the procedure on any area of skin. The results are not permanent but can help the skin look fresh in the longer run.

Microdermabrasion vs. Dermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is less invasive than dermabrasion. Dermabrasion uses more intensive methods to remove the top layer of skin. A dermatologist may recommend dermabrasion for older acne scars or scars from accidents or surgery, as microdermabrasion may not be fully effective on such skin problems. Dermabrasion is only suitable for people with fair skin. However, Microdermabrasion can be suitable for people with any skin color as it is much more versatile.
