Microdermabrasion – Number of skin conditions it can help with.

What is microdermabrasion and what can it do? Microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure for most skin types and colors – it can sound painful to some, but it is actually one of the fastest, non-invasive and gentlest skin treatments around today.

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical facial resurfacing technique – to remove the dead skin cells and the outer layer of skin, the skin is mechanically exfoliated and the loose skin cells are vacuumed away. This results in a smoother, softer and rejuvenated skin.

Microdermabrasion can help with a number of different skin conditions or issues, including, but not limited to:

 – sun damage

 – age spots

 – acne scars

 – fine lines

 – wrinkles

 – stretch marks

 – skin tone

 – texture

 – melasma and more.

Oily skinhaving hydromicrodermabrasion done on oily skin will make it less greasy, and pores can be shrunk.

Acne Scars – mild acne scars can be reduced with hydro microdermabrasion.

Fine lines and wrinkles – can be decreased using hydro microdermabrasion

Puffy eyes have also been treated using hydro microdermabrasion.

Some studies have suggested there may be health risks associated with aluminium oxide-based microdermabrasion machines, with fears the small particles could enter the lungs if breathed in, or scratch the eyes – for this reason, hydromicrodermabrasion should be considered. It is even less invasive, using the water jets instead of crystals, diamonds or abrasive surface.

Hydromicrodermabrasion is a relatively fast treatment taking only about 30 minutes. There is no recovery to speak of – the skin might be a bit pink right after the procedure, but there should be know visible puffiness, strong discolouration or anything similar.

The procedure itself is gentle and relaxing – it is the perfect exfoliation as there is no discomfort whatsoever and even though the best results will take a number of applications, progressive results can be seen with every application, immediately after the procedure.
