Microdermabrasion is a technique used for resurfacing the skin by removing the surface cells. It stimulates cell regeneration in the dermis and epidermis.
Microdermabrasion can be used to treat conditions such as:
Aging and sun damage
Fine Lines and wrinkles
Acne Scarring/ pigmentation
Results of microdermabrasion include: improvements of skin tone, improved luster of skin, more elasticity in skin, more refined pores and diminished scarring. Microdermabrasion cannot be used if the skin has been treated with Retin A, renova, any product with Vitamin A or any products containing glycolic acid within 24 hours of the treatment. For best results, Microdermabrasion is done in a sequence and can be combined with other treatments such as chemical peels, enzyme peels, galvanic current or LED treatments. Post treatment care involves keeping the skin hydrated and daily use of sunscreen is required. Sun exposure for the following 3-5 days should be avoided. Used of make-up following the procedure is ok. Though microdermabrasion is an effective method of resurfacing, it is necessary to use appropriate home care is very important to achieve skin care goals.
