Microdermabrasion is the name of the cosmetic procedure in which the specialist gently “sands” the skin to eliminate the uneven outer layer of it, revealing a new, smoother layer. It is a skin rejuvenation therapy that treats minor scars, discoloration and sun damage.
This treatment uses microparticles of crystals or diamonds to gently exfoliate your skin, providing a fresher and healthier appearance. Unlike dermabrasion, this technique does not need anesthetic medications, as it is less aggressive.
One of the advantages of this procedure is improving the production of collagen, which makes your complexion get better. These are some of the benefits of Microdermabrasion:
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Treating acne scars.
- Exfoliate and refresh your skin.
- Hyperpigmentation (malluscula) can be improved, as well as points and black spots caused by age.
- Promotes new cell growth.
After the procedure, you may expect some level of redness due to friction, but gradually it will return to its normal color. In addition, you may feel stiffness and dryness during the first 24 hours. Most doctors recommend using moisturizers, sunscreen and avoid makeup for at least 48 hours
