Microdermabrasion is a well known and highly used dermal treatment that can help improve the skin and reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles and more. For those unfamiliar with how microdermabrasion treatments work, Open Door Med Spa would like to explain this amazing skin improvement procedure.
What Does Microdermabrasion Do for Your Face?
Microdermabrasion is essentially a process of exfoliation that carefully removes the outer layer of skin. In removing the outer layer of skin, it helps to remove the dull or dead skin cells. By removing the dead skin cells it will help to reveal the smooth, softer and healthier skin underneath. There are a number of different applications for microdermabrasion treatments. Some of the common reasons why people will seek microdermabrasion treatments are:
• Reduce Wrinkles and Fine Lined
• Treat skin Discoloration
• Reduce the Appearance of Acne Scars
• Decrease the size of Pores
• Promote Healthier Skin Development
Microdermabrasion Facial Consultation
When seeking a microdermabrasion treatment, you will first start by seeing a Med Spa doctor for consultation and evaluation. It helps for the med spa professionals to know what areas you are looking to improve. With a better understanding of your needs, you can schedule your first microdermabrasion session. You will see results in a single session. However, depending on your needs, you may benefit from multiple sessions scheduled several weeks apart.
What Should You Do & Not Do After Microdermabrasion?
A microdermabrasion treatment starts by apply tiny crystal to the surface of the skin. These crystals gently scrub the surface of the skin. Often a moisturizer is sent home to help sooth the skin. With microdermabrasion treatments there is no major recovery time. However, you will want to avoid sun light on the newly exposed skin for a few days and make sure to wear sunscreen when you are outside. The skin will feel sensitive for a few days but the moisturizer will help to keep your skin feeling more comfortable. You can also combine other facial treatments to enhance the microdermabrasion results. Often chemical peels are a great additional treatment for the skin.
How Often Should You Use Microdermabrasion?
You can have a microdermabrasion treatment every six weeks or so until you get the desired results. Afterward, you can maintain healthier looking skin with a microdermabrasion session every few months or so. How often a person actually needs microdermabrasion treatments will vary. For example, those outside in the sun may want more microdermabrasion treatments a bit more often than those that spend most of their time indoors. Those with certain skin conditions and have a life long battle against acne may also need microdermabrasion and other skin treatments more often. To help improve your skins health, you can seek microdermabrasion. However, don’t forget the power of your diet. Drinking plenty of water is key in having healthy skin. Avoid greasy food and take plenty of vitamins, including Biotin which promotes healthier, nails, hair, and skin.
