Microdermabrasion revitalizes dull skin by removing dead skin cells leaving skin fresh and feeling smooth as soon as treatment is over. Microdermabrasion can also improve the quality of your skin by reducing the appearance of:
Your skin is first cleansed with a special cleansing gel. Microdermabrasion is done using a handheld device. The aluminum oxide micro crystal flow is sandblasted through a small tube pressed against the skin. The tube also vacuums back dead skin cells and used micro crystals.
The crystal flow starts as soon as the microdermabrasion wand touches your skin. The doctor slowly moves the wand across your entire face, not just on treated areas, so that you don’t experience inconsistencies in skin texture or color. After microdermabrasion, your skin is soothed with a special nourishing sun blocking cream, allowing you to go back to your daily routine immediately after treatment.
Aluminum oxide crystals are perfectly safe and non-toxic if ingested. They don’t cause adverse skin reactions and they are non-carcinogen. During microdermabrasion, your eyes are protected by special glasses to prevent micro crystals from getting in your eyes. The special wands in microdermabrasion machines are designed to vacuum back all micro crystals released during micro dermabrasion. That way, chances of inhaling the aluminum oxide are fairly slim.
All skin types and colors can be treated with microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion treatment is painless. Some patients have reported some itchiness or stinginess when micro crystals come in contact with their skin. You may feel some discomfort around the eyes, but as microdermabrasion treatment continues, your skin gets used to crystal flow. It feels like the mild facial massage from a special wand. Your face may appear a little pinkish in the first 24 hours, but you should not experience any itchiness or pain.
You will experience brighter, softer skin immediately after your treatment. However, our team recommends frequent exfoliation treatments to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores 3-4 times a year.
