Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that involves the use of a special device to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the face or body. The procedure uses tiny exfoliating crystals or a diamond-tipped wand to gently scrub the skin, increasing the blood circulation, removing the dead skin cells and revealing smoother, brighter skin underneath.
Microdermabrasion is often used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. It can also be used to unclog pores, reduce the appearance of large pores, and improve skin texture and tone.
Microdermabrasion is usually done in a series of treatments, with each session lasting between 3 minutes to an hour. The number of sessions needed will depend on the individual's skin concerns and goals. The procedure is usually under 30 to 60 minutes. After the procedure, the skin may be slightly pink and sensitive for a few hours, but there is generally no downtime or recovery period required.
It is important to note that microdermabrasion is not recommended for individuals with active acne, rosacea, or skin infections, and it may not be suitable for individuals with very sensitive skin or certain skin conditions. It is always best to consult with a skincare professional before undergoing any cosmetic treatment.
