What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a popular cosmetic procedure because it is effective, affordable, and convenient. It works on both the outer layer of the skin (called the epidermis) as well as the deep layer of the skin (the dermis). Laser MD Medspa offers Microdermabrasion treatments for patients in the areas of Boston, Braintree, Burlington, Danvers, Natick, Needham And Westford.
The epidermis is the layer most exposed to the environmental elements. It’s a set of dead skin cells on top of another layer of cells that are in the process of maturing. The topmost layer of the epidermis is called the stratum corneum. All of the effects of the microdermabrasion take place at the level of the stratum corneum, which is home to many minor skin imperfections like fine lines and blemishes.
The Skin Issues Microdermabrasion Can Treat
Microdermabrasion can be used to treat a variety of common skin issues and concerns. In addition to this, microdermabrasion can also help to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen helps to tighten and strengthen the skin which will help to smooth the surface of the skin for a more youthful and radiant appearance. Many people receive a microdermabrasion facial multiple times a year as a way to maintain the beauty of their facial skin. Microdermabrasion is often used to treat skin issues like:
- – Acne
- – Acne scars
- – Stretch marks
- – Age spots
- – Hyperpigmentation
- – Sun damage
- – Light scars
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion is a term describing the application of tiny rough grains to scrape away the aforementioned surface layers of skin. This skin-care treatment can serve as an effective alternative to more invasive, and more costly, procedures like plastic surgery, chemical peels, and injections. However, the treatment is also helpful in preparation for more involved facial procedures.
The procedure is quite simple, beginning with the application of a calming gel or foam to cleanse the skin of dirt and oil. The medical professional then applies the microdermabrasion tool to the skin. This tool is filled with tiny crystals or diamonds to exfoliate the top layers of skin cells.
What to Expect After Your Microdermabrasion Treatment
Once the outermost layer of the skin is removed, the healing process involves the production of new skin cells to replace the old ones, leaving clients with a newer, smoother-looking appearance to their skin.
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment and there is no downtime or recovery period required. It is recommended that patients apply a moisturizer to the treated areas to help keep the skin hydrated and nourished which will help to prolong the results of their treatment.
