What is Microdermabrasion? Will It Improve Your Skin?
To sum it up quickly, microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that often uses tiny crystals to exfoliate and remove the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells. A lot of people have heard of this procedure but aren’t exactly sure what it is.
Patients with fine lines, uneven pigmentation, or clogged pores may benefit the most from a series of microdermabrasion treatments. It is also recommended for melasma patients and individuals using retinoids such as a Retin-A. Melasma is a form of pigmentation caused by a combination of hormones, ultraviolet light and inflammation.
The difference between an in-office microdermabrasion and an at-home treatment is that the devices used in the medical office generally have larger motors and more power, and they penetrate deeper into the skin. There is also the fact that a professional office like ours sterilizes in the same way as our surgical instruments, which is important for safety. How often you should receive treatment depends on your skincare needs and finances. The powerful equipment we have packs a bigger punch than the in-home methods so many of our clients visit in 1 to 2 month intervals.
