Microdermabrasion is a very popular minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that can restore and rejuvenate your skin if it has been affected by things like aging, sun damage, or overall dullness. It is a fairly fast treatment that can offer you smoother and younger-looking skin.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Your provider uses a handheld device to spray tiny crystals onto the outer surface of your skin. Technically, this skin layer is known as the stratum corneum – a layer of skin that is mainly made up of dead skin cells, dirt, and cellular debris. Think of this material as dust on a light bulb. By removing it, we are restoring the natural radiance found underneath. Microdermabrasion also helps to stimulate the production of new collagen to help your skin appear smoother, fresher, and more youthful.
Microdermabrasion stimulates the turnover of old skin cells in favor of newly formed cells in the epidermis and dermis, gradually brightening your skin and giving you a more uniform skin tone. Even better, since microdermabrasion does not damage living skin tissue, there is no downtime involved.
Here are just a few of the many benefits of microdermabrasion:
Brighter Skin Tone
When we remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin using microdermabrasion, it stimulates your body into speeding up the rate at which it replaces old skin cells with new ones. When we vacuum away the abraded material from your skin, it also stimulates your blood circulation and promotes the formation of new collagen to renew your skin.
Minimize Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As you grow older, your body’s natural production of elastin and collagen begins slowing down. This eventually results in the steady encroachment of fine lines and wrinkles. Microdermabrasion helps to encourage the formation of new collagen in your skin to stimulate skin renewal and enhance the appearance of the surface of your skin to help smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
Reduce Skin Pores
The exfoliating effect of microdermabrasion will help to remove any oils, cellular debris, and other impurities that may be clogging up your skin pores. This clears oil glands and helps your skin pores regain their natural shape and size.
Improves Topical Absorption
Finally, microdermabrasion works to make any topical serums, gels, ointments, or other topical products, much more effective. The outer layer of your skin acts as a barrier to slow down, or even prevent, the absorption of topical skincare products. By removing it with microdermabrasion, we allow your skin to more fully absorb anything applied to it after your treatment.
