At its simplest, microdermabrasion gently sands your face with tiny crystals. During the treatment, the upper layer of the skin is exfoliated, encouraging regeneration and cell production.
If you are unhappy with your skin tone or suffer from dark spots or age spots, this could be the treatment for you.
Here’s what you can realistically expect.
The Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Dead skin cells result in clogged pores and a dull complexion. With microdermabrasion, the upper layer of skin is removed, revealing a smoother, fresher complexion. The treatment also boosts collagen production, resulting in a firmer and brighter appearance.
While you won’t notice dramatic results after your treatment, you can look forward to a more even and brighter skin tone over time and with repeated treatments.
It Takes More Than One Session
Skin sheds naturally every month, and with so much dead skin, a high-quality exfoliation treatment is a must. Repeated sessions train your skin to look youthful and reduce spots and scars.
While just one session will leave you looking brighter for a few days, continued treatments have lasting effects on issues like fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, coarse skin, sun damage, and age spots.
If you choose microdermabrasion for specific skin issues, you’ll likely need around 6 to 12 sessions to achieve lasting and noticeable improvements.
At first, you can schedule your appointments every 2 to 4 weeks apart, gradually stretching them out to monthly sessions.
Will It Hurt?
While the sheer thought of crystals blasting your skin to remove the uppermost layer seems a bit scary, it isn’t as dramatic as it sounds. Some people report that microdermabrasion feels like a cat’s rough tongue licking their face. Others say it feels like a little tugging on their skin.
But there is no need to worry. This treatment works merely on the surface of your skin, which means there is no pain and no downtime.
