Have you noticed that your skin is looking dull and lifeless? No matter how carefully you take care of your skin, sometimes no amount of creams, lotions, and serums can help rejuvenate your complexion. Thousands of people have been helped by undergoing a microdermabrasion treatment to rejuvenate their skin and encourage the formation of new skin tissue.
Why Microdermabrasion is Needed
Most people are unaware that the outer layer of skin is actually composed of non-living material like dead skin cells, oils, and cellular debris. As skin cells mature, they rise to the top of the skin and are normally able to replace dead skin cells found there. Sometimes, dead skin cells will build up on the surface instead of sloughing off, dulling your complexion.
Microdermabrasion works by removing this buildup. Think of a lightbulb with a layer of dust on it – you can’t see the light due to the obstruction on the surface. This treatment works by removing the stratum corneum skin layer to reveal fresher skin underneath that is more youthful and radiant.
The treatment is better than many other similar procedures because it can resurface your skin in a non-invasive way, as it gently exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells and stimulates the growth of new collagen to reveal smoother skin underneath. The treatment helps to improve the condition of blemishes, fine lines, sunspots, and dull skin. Patients respond best when they undergo several treatments a year, as inorganic material can begin building up again on the surface of the skin.
How It is Performed
A microdermabrasion treatment is quite simple and fast. We use a small device to spray tiny, abrasive particles onto the surface of your skin. This breaks up the stratum corneum skin layer that blocks the natural radiance of your skin. After the treatment, we vacuum up both the abrasive particles and the inorganic material that was blocking fresher skin underneath it.
This treatment may benefit you if you’re wanting to brighten your complexion and enjoy a healthy glow. It also helps those who are dealing with acne scars, fine lines, or sun damage. If your pores are clogged or you want to maintain clear, healthy skin, you may also want to consider undergoing this treatment.
Microdermabrasion makes a good treatment choice for those who would like immediate results without any downtime or adverse events. It helps those who would like to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and skin blemishes. It is safe and effective for all colors and skin types.
