Uneven skin tone is caused by aging factors as well as environmental exposures. Thinning skin wrinkles more easily, and if collagen production has decreased, skin becomes more susceptible to discoloring. Abrasive resurfacing strips away the uppermost layer of skin and stimulates new growth. This is actually a gentle procedure that causes just enough skin damage to trigger healthier growth. Microdermabrasion is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures, and it is an outpatient treatment. If you are looking for a simple, effective way to diminish surface-level spotting, blemishes, or injury scarring, microdermabrasion may be the answer.
About Abrasive Resurfacing
Microdermabrasion doesn’t target deeper scars or discoloration that occurs beneath the skin layers. It is effective for reducing the appearance of surface spotting, uneven skin texture, and light scarring. In a nutshell, the skin is subjected to carefully controlled sandblasting.
Tiny crystals are packed into a pressure tube and sprayed directly onto the skin. The crystals perform two functions. The first is to lift away the outer layer of epidermis. The second is to partially exfoliate the skin by unclogging pores.
How the Procedure is Performed
We ask our clients to schedule a consultation so that we can examine the facial skin in detail. We take a close look at the skin and its elasticity, thickness, and color variations. We then design a customized treatment session that factors in the amount of pressure of the crystal stream as well as the duration of the resurfacing procedure.
The instrument used is like a vacuum hose except the pressure has been reversed. The crystals are sprayed directly onto the skin. After spraying, the vacuum sucks up the crystals and skin cells.
During the treatment, the client may feel some discomfort. The skin may remain pink for a day or so. Afterward, normal cleaning and moisturizing of the face is resumed by the client.
Advantages of Microdermabrasion
Unlike deeper dermabrasion techniques, only the surface skin is disturbed during microdermabrasion. When the upper skin layer is removed, the supporting tissue begins to produce collagen.
The new skin growth is healthier, and age spots, light scars, and blemishes begin to fade because the upper skin layers are now thicker. Fine wrinkles also begin to disappear.
