5 Beauty Benefits of a Microdermabrasion

Posted in Beauti-Med Tips


Exposure to environmental factors, lifestyle behaviour, and aging, all impact your skin negatively. To help regenerate your skin and remove wrinkles, flaking skin, acne scars, age spots, or stretch marks, there is a highly successful treatment you can try:a microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion Benefits

Introduced in North America in 1996, microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, restorative procedure that deeply exfoliates the skin on your face, neck, hands, and cleavage to create a youthful glow.

So, why should you consider microdermabrasion?

  1. It is a safe and effective procedure

Many people would like to know whether a procedure is safe before trying it out. So, for microdermabrasion, is it safe? According to the Society of Plastic Surgeons, it is much safer when performed by a proficient dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon in a professional setting, spa or salon, compared to when you use the home kits, due to the absence of medical oversight.

As long as you’re microdermabrasion is being conducted by a professional, it’s completely safe!

  1. It’s a non-invasiveprocedure

This technique involves the superficial polishing of the patient’s skin with the use of micro-crystals (using a hand-held device) to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells and impurities from the epidermis surface. This is done by suctioning, or with the use of a diamond-tipped wand. Basically, the technique does not abrade or wound the skin past the epidermis.

  1. It can be used for all healthy skin types

The treatment works by stimulating the production of collagen and new skin cells on the epidermis, as well as by improving blood flow. It can:

  • Clean and regenerate all types of skin including oily skin
  • Eliminate blackheads and whiteheads
  • Smooth coarsely textured skin
  • Tone the skin
  • Shrink pores
  • Reduce the appearance of acne, acne scars, brown spots, and fine lines.
  • Increase product penetration

All you need is a single treatment to make your skin look healthy and refreshed.

  1. It’s incredibly fast yet has long lasting results

One of the best things about this technique is that you’ll be able to compare your skin condition, microdermabrasion before and after, in as little as 20 minutes for neck treatment, and 30 minutes for face treatment, with no downtime necessary for the skin to recover.

The Society of Plastic Surgeons claims that people typically need two sessions in the same month, followed by monthly maintenance treatments to achieve optimal results.

  1. It’s relatively painless

The treatment is overall painless, with the patient experiencing a light scratching, vibration, or mild stinging sensation during the treatment, which is similar to the feeling you get during a massage. No anaesthesia is necessary, and any microdermabrasion effects, such as the skin turning pink and slight swelling after the procedure, only last for a day, on average.

In addition, the treatment delivers immediate, long-term effects, reducing the signs of aging and giving you youthful looks that cannot be obtained with the use of standard skin care products. For best results, your microdermabrasion specialist will recommend some moisturizer products that you should apply every day.
