Microdermabrasion is a treatment used to help treat superficial scarring, age lines, blemishes and age spots. The treatment involves exfoliants and a special machine to help buff your face to remove these minor imperfections and leaves your face smooth and beautiful. The treatment is painless and doesn't take much time at all. This is a good treatment if you have some of these minor imperfections and are looking for a painless and fast treatment. See below for some of the benefits of having a mircodermabrasion treatment.
1. Little To No Side Effects
Unlike other skin treatments, microdermabrasion has little to no side effects. You may feel some tingling while having the procedure done, but you shouldn't feel numbness in your face at all. You also may have a little bit of redness, but the redness will go away after a few hours. Be sure to use a professional microdermabrasion specialist, as there are risks if you use a non-professional, such as non-sterile conditions or misuse of the application.
2. Inexpensive And Fast
This procedure is inexpensive compared to other skin treatments, as it can be done in office rather quickly. The procedure is done without any anesthetic or needles and is not considered a surgical procedure like some other anti-wrinkle treatments. In fact, this is something that can be done on your lunch break.
3. Skin Improvements
Microdermabrasion will help liven your skin, as the procedure helps slough off dead skin cells and other built up dirt. The procedure will rejuvenate your skin, increase collagen production, improve skin tone, and even out texture, pigment and color. It will also help reduce clogged pores, fine lines, enlarged pores and acne scars. With these improvements, your skin will be able to absorb skin products better, which makes using other types of skin-care products such as anti-aging lotions, sunscreens and acne washes more effective.
Microdermabrasion is not for every type of skin though. This is a treatment for those looking for quick results, but who have minor imperfections such as superficial scarring, minor wrinkling and dull skin. Those that have deep scarring or wrinkles should look into other types of treatments in addition to microdermabrasion in order to get the best results.
Always consult a professional cosmetic physician, like Merkel William D MD, before beginning any type of anti-wrinkle facial treatment to see what is the best type of treatment for your skin.
