What is Microdermabrasion? Microdermabrasion may be considered a form of skin polishing where the superficial layer of skin is gently abraded away. It is a non-surgical procedure that can be used on any area of the body although the face is the most popular location. This treatment can be useful for men and women with all skin types and skin colours, and has been used to diminish a variety of flaws. It can treat dull and leathery skin, reduce mild acne scaring, lighten blemishes and discolorations, smooth fine wrinkles, even skin tone, and reduce acne and razor bumps. It has also been used to exfoliate clogged pores and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. Microdermabrasion not only helps to remove unwanted irregularities in the skin, but also stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. It is also an excellent alternative for people with skin that is sensitive to or unable to tolerate chemical peels. How does it work? Microdermabrasion uses a closed vacuum device or machine that gently sucks air through a tube, into a hand piece, and onto your skin. The machine mixes the gentle abrasion of the particles with suction to remove the dead and damaged outer layers of your skin. The skin debris and particles are then sucked back into the tube and into a waste canister for disposal. This gently polishes your skin and the suction stimulates blood flow and collagen production. In most cases, treatments last between 10-30 minutes and do not require any downtime. You can go straight back to work. As with many other rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be required to restore your skin to its natural beauty. Most therapists will recommend between 6 to 12 treatments, spaced 2-3 weeks apart, to achieve the desired results. After you complete the initial treatments, it is recommended to have regular treatments.
