How Does Microdermabrasion Work?The specially designed diamond-headed tool buffs and polishes the skin while suction pulls away the skin cells. This process also encourages your skin to produce collagen and elastin, two proteins that your skin needs to maintain smoothness and elasticity. During your Microdermabrasion treatment, a trained technician will run the tool over your skin. You will feel some vibration and scratching, but the gentle treatment should not cause any pain.
What Skin Issues Does Microdermabrasion Help?
Microdermabrasion improves skin health and reduces the appearance of many skin issues, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Large pores
- Poor skin texture
What Happens After Microdermabrasion?After your treatment is over, you have no downtime. While you might have a little redness, it should fade quickly. You may have some dryness or flakiness over the next few days which can be helped with moisturizer. Your skin will immediately have a new glow, but results will improve over time and with repeat treatments. You may need two treatments per month to begin, then just one treatment per month to maintain your results. You can also make your results last longer by caring for your skin with gentle moisturizer and wearing sunscreen every day.
