How to tell if you need Microdermabrasion
We discussed about Microdermabrasion on our previous article (Microdermabrasion: What to Expect at Your First Treatment). For those who haven’t read it, let me give you a brief run down
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure. It uses a hand-held device that gently exfoliates the superficial layer of the skin with the use of crystals or diamond tips and vacuums away the dead skin cells to reveal a healthier and younger looking skin. It works best with superficial acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, light scars and stretch marks, lightens skin pigmentations and as a pore minimizer. As a bonus, it also stimulates your system to produce more collagen on the treated area. It doesn’t work much (maybe possible for a lot more sessions but not guaranteed) for people with deep lines, wrinkles, and scars as well as dark brown pigmentations. The procedure is fast as it lasts only for half an hour, you can even do it during your lunch break. Not painful but for a tingling sensation during the treatment. Requires no downtime or recovery period as the procedure is non-surgical. Any effects such as a little redness and swelling will gradually fade over a short number of hours.
