Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a treatment that involves the use of fine crystals to gently exfoliate and remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells. This reveals healthy new skin that is smooth, plump and receptive to nutrients. Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen growth, which results in a younger looking complexion. It can be performed on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, and other parts of the body.

This type of skin rejuvenation is primarily used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and to treat light scarring, discolouration, sun damage, and stretch marks. Microdermabrasion can also improve age spots and black heads, improve hyperpigmentation, reduce or eliminate enlarged pores, and treat acne and the scars left by acne.

Procedure

During the procedure, a handpiece emits crystals onto the surface of your skin resulting in a gentle abrasion or "polishing" process. Then the dead skin cells along with the crystals are suctioned off either instantaneously in the same handpiece, or in a secondary process. According to the National Health Service, microdermabrasion usually takes less than 30 minutes. For best results, a course of four to six treatments is often recommended, along with maintenance treatments when required.

The treatment area may appear red for up to half a day after the procedure. Your skin will also be more sensitive to the sun immediately after treatment, so you should avoid direct sun exposure for a few days afterwards.

Risks

The side effects of microdermabrasion, such as redness and swelling, tend to be short-lived. Your skin may also be dry and flaky for a few days after treatment and the suction may temporarily bruise your skin.
