How it works?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses exfoliating surfaces to help remove the superficial layer of dead skin cells.
When you remove the stratum corneum, or the top layer of skin, the body interprets it as an injury. It then quickly replaces the lost skin cells with new, healthy ones. The entire procedure usually takes about 30 minutes for the face.
The machines can buff and polish the skin using a a diamond tip, while some also vacuum loose skin cells from the face
Is microdermabrasion safe?
Yes. As with all treatments that penetrate the skin or disrupt the skin’s surface, the safest procedure will be carried out by a professional. In fact, many people choose microdermabrasion over chemical peels and laser treatment because it is generally safer and more cost-effective.
The procedure may be a little uncomfortable but shouldn’t hurt. However, your skin will be slightly tender afterwards and a bit red.
People with uneven pigmentation, fine lines and clogged pores can benefit from a series of microdermabrasion treatments.
The procedure stimulates blood flow, which increases the nutrition delivered to skin cells. This improves cell production, which improves skin’s elasticity and texture. So, if you have scarring, it may help reduce the appearance of acne scars.
However, it’s not recommended if you have skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, active sunburn, herpes, lupus, open sores, psoriasis, fragile capillaries or widespread acne. This can irritate the skin and cause further breakouts
