What is microdermabrasion? A cosmetic procedure that is versatile and still provides peace of mind, while saving you time because it is quick. Generally it takes five to sixteen sessions with your cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist in order to see the results most people want from the procedure. However, single visit procedures are available as well. Microdermabrasian allows you to gain a refreshed look to your skin without more invasive procedures like laser treatment and intensive chemical peels.
Peace of Mind
Microdermabrasion provides peace of mind in many ways, such as those below. For those worried about their procedures involving plastic surgery, this is a good option.
Non-Invasive: Because microdermabrasion only deals with the surface level of the skin using a handheld device, it is very non-invasive. The device spreads small crystals over the surface of the skin which are subsequently suctioned up. They may also be administered using a wand with a diamond tip. Each method accomplishes the same goal: removing the surface layer of dead skin cells via gentle exfoliation, resulting in no abrasion beyond the epidermis.
Effective & Safe: Microdermabrasion is much safer than home kits or similarly marketed services provided by salons and spas because it does not lack proper medical oversight, a fact noted by the Society of Plastic Surgeons. Beware of the home kits because the results will be far less effective, according to the Academy of Dermatology. Qualified medical professionals should only be used when seeking out microdermabrasion services to prevent complications and optimize benefits.
Painless: Worried about the pain of microdermabrasion? Don’t because it is a nearly painless procedure. All you may feel is a mild stinging or vibration similar to a massage. The procedure requires no anesthesia and the only side effects you may notice is somewhat swollen or pink skin.
You’ll be glad to hear that microdermabrasion works for all skin types, making it an incredibly versatile procedure. It helps reduce the signs of aging such as discoloration, age spots and sun damage and restores the natural glow to your skin, anywhere on your body. Those with oily skin often see a reduction in acne scarring — the Mayo Clinic even cites microdermabrasion as potentially beneficial for blemishes. When you need to make your skin look better for a special event, get a single treatment about a week before so you are recovered in time.

You don’t have to waste time with lengthy treatments when it comes to microdermabrasion, though for more thorough treatments you’ll have to go back multiple times to your cosmetic surgeon for the procedure, which usually lasts under an hour for the face. The neck only takes about 20 minutes to complete, while some persons only need a couple of sessions during a single month, in addition to monthly treatments for maintenance, according to the Society of Plastic Surgeons.
