Understanding Microdermabrasion

Are you interested in microdermabrasion but you’re not sure about what it entails? A beauty treatment that makes use of specialized tools that will be able to restore a healthy and naturally rejuvenated glow to your skin, microdermabrasion is a painless procedure. It is also an alternative that is equally as effective as surgical procedures for skin resurfacing, like dermal abrasion, chemical peels, and laser skin resurfacing.
The Procedure
Microdermabrasion was originally a procedure that was exclusively performed by plastic surgeons in a cold and sterile operating room. They used hand-held tools that are essentially similar to a sandblaster to spray a highly-pressure crystalized substance onto the skin. With advances in technology, the microdermabrasion procedure can be performed by a trained and licensed cosmetologist.
The machines used for microdermabrasion consist of a compressor and a pump that combine a gentle abrasive substance with suction in order to carefully peel the outer layer of skin. The layer is skin is very fine, and consists of primarily dead skin cells.
The complete procedure won’t take much more than half an hour to a full hour; unlike laser skin surgery or the any other skin abrasion procedure. Microdermabrasion can be done on your face, feet, hands, neck, chest, or your back.
Benefits Of Microdermabrasion
There are several great benefits to the microdermabrasion procedure with the primary factor being that it is a completely pain-free procedure. Many people who undergo the procedure report that they sometimes feel a mild tingling sensation; but they never felt any pain at all. For the first 24 hours after the procedure the skin might be a little bit red, much like a windburn, but it will quickly fade.
Unlike other skin procedures that are much more invasive, microdermabrasion allows you to return to work or go out with your friends. Just one hour after the procedure you will be ready to resume your normal routine. You may need a few sessions to get the best results, unlike the invasive procedures that will give you quicker results but a harsher recovery time.

 

The Short-Term And Long-Term Results
The first microdermabrasion can give you almost immediate results with healthy glowing skin while the long-term effects can provide you with several other types of great benefits.
