Microdermabrasion is a popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure that removes the uppermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, chest, and hands by mechanical abrasion.
Microdermabrasion represents an excellent way to tackle the following concerns:
- Sun damaged skin
- Age spots
- Dark pigmentation
- Small scars
- Surface acne
- Enlarged pores
What Is Microdermabrasion and How Is It Performed?
Microdermabrasion uses a powerful device to spray microcrystals of very fine, hard sand-like aluminum dioxide across the skin’s surface which blasts away the uppermost layer of dead skin cells on the skin’s epidermis, exposing the skin beneath and promoting the growth of new, fresh skin while stimulating the production of collagen.
Microdermabrasion can be uncomfortable but is not normally painful. It is usually performed in a dermatologist’s or doctor’s office and can be performed on the face, neck, chest, back, and hands. Your microdermabrasion clinician may recommend a series of four to six treatments for best results, with healing time in between.
Microdermabrasion may be suitable for people who want to improve their facial appearance but do not want the cost, risk, or downtime associated with invasive cosmetic surgery.
Microdermabrasion Recovery and Healing
Depending on the area treated, most people can return to work straight away after treatment with microdermabrasion.
Normal activities after microdermabrasion can usually be resumed immediately, and discomfort is minimal. There is virtually no microdermabrasion recovery time, and you can return to work and your normal activities immediately.
You will probably experience some redness on your skin after the microdermabrasion treatment, though this lasts only a few hours. Your skin may also feel slightly sun burnt or wind burnt, but moisturizer will help to ease this.
You will find the excellent post-treatment care and advice helpful from the dedicated staff from the Parkcrest team.
