Microdermabrasion is a very effective procedure during which a layer of your skin is removed. Your skin will be softer, smoother, and more even as a result, and in addition to these advantages, microdermabrasion will also stimulate your skin as well.
There are different types of devices that can be used, and there are two distinct procedures you can choose from, including microcrystal-based microdermabrasion and diamond-tip devices. The first option is a tried-and-true method that is efficient, comfortable, and flexible. During this procedure, corundum crystals are launched at high speed through a specialized stylus and all of the dead skin cells, dirt, used crystals, and other impurities are simultaneously suctioned off through an integrated vacuum system.
The new diamond tip device is considered an improvement because this new technology allows for direct contact between the abrasive surfaces and the skin. There are no volatile particles involved, so clients can choose to treat the zones that are closer to their eyes and mouth. This technology is also very easy to deal with and more economical in the long run because one would not have to continue purchasing crystals to operate the device. The end piece does have to be cleaned and sterilized after each use, and in terms of comfort, this is a personal matter that will be different for every individual. Some people find diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments to be more comfortable, while others prefer the default method.
What is great about these treatment options is that you don’t have to choose just one because it’s possible to enjoy both. The traditional microcrystal treatment method is not obsolete, and in some cases, this can be a more efficient way to deal with highly irregular surfaces because a stream of particles is by nature better suited to conform itself to the uneven features of the skin. You would also get more power output with this treatment method, and this would allow you to deal with deeper-set lesions. Finally, because corundum is inert matter, you will not have to worry about contamination, and the end piece will not have to be cleaned or sterilized because it is designed for single-use.
There are benefits to both methods and you can choose to take advantage of each. Professionals do have access to a device that would be able to seamlessly transition from one technique to the other so that you can experience the strength of each. Or, you can choose to stick to one method depending on your concerns and circumstances.
Choice is always a good thing, and when it comes to microdermabrasion, you will have options. Waterfront Laser can provide you with more information, so if you are interested in younger and healthier-looking skin, contact us today!
