If you’ve been hearing a lot about microdermabrasion, it’s no surprise as this procedure is becoming increasingly popular. This procedure is non-invasive and uses tiny crystals to help remove the superficial layer of dead skin cells. Other exfoliating surfaces may be used depending on the dermatologist and once the top layer of the skin is removed, the body will treat it as an injury and quickly replace those lost skin cells with new ones that are healthy. The procedure is safe and takes about half an hour for the face. Microdermabrasion machines are able to buff and polish the skin through the use of fine crystals and some are also able to vacuum loose skin cells directly from the face. Kits are also available if you would like to complete this treatment at home. 

It’s natural for the skin to be a little tender and red after the procedure but the treatment itself does not hurt. It may be slightly uncomfortable but if the treatment is done by a certified professional, it will be perfectly safe and more cost-effective when compared to chemical peels and laser treatments. 

One of the reasons microdermabrasion is so popular is because of the results it produces. You will notice a difference in the elasticity, texture and clarity of your skin, especially if you are in the early stages of ageing. Those between the ages of 35 and 50 will see the best results if they receive the number of treatments recommended by their dermatologist. 

There are many benefits to microdermabrasion and it is designed for those with uneven pigmentation, fine lines and clogged pores. A series of treatments will help with all of these conditions because the procedure stimulates blood flow, resulting in an increase in the nutrition that is delivered to the skin cells. This helps improve cell production, resulting in an improvement in the skin’s elasticity and texture. It is particularly effective for anyone who has scarring, as this treatment will help reduce the appearance of any acne scars. 

If you were considering using an at-home kit, the main difference between this option and professional treatment is the devices that are used. The ones that dermatologists use have a lot more power, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin and providing the client with precise exfoliation, which a home kit may not be able to do.
