Smoothing the skin and reducing the visibility of wrinkling is on the minds of many adults. Aging skin begins to show thin wrinkle lines as well as uneven tone. Abrasive resurfacing techniques can improve the overall texture of the skin by gently removing some of the epidermal layer. Microdermabrasion is a specialized form of resurfacing that isn’t considered invasive. There’s also no major downtime after the treatment, making it a popular choice for those who want an efficient solution to the problem of uneven skin texture.
We are experts in skin rejuvenation, and we highly recommend microdermabrasion to many of our clients who bring us their concerns about aging skin and rough skin texture. Below are some of the specifics of microdermabrasion, but to get all the facts about this skin revitalizing treatment, we suggest that you consult with us.
Why Resurface the Skin?
The outer layer of skin, the epidermis, is constantly under attack from environmental adversaries. Pollution, sun exposure, and injuries take their toll. Once in the mature adult years, individuals really start to notice things like fine wrinkle lines on the face and elsewhere, uneven and brittle skin texture, and more prominent spotting such as freckles and other blemishes.
Removal of the epidermis in a controlled manner kickstarts a rejuvenation process. The body accelerates the transformation of dermal tissue into epidermal tissue, and this is accompanied by an increase in collagen production.
How Microdermabrasion is Performed
We use a specialized instrument that sends out many tiny crystals. The air stream is directed at the skin surface. The crystals gently lift away the epidermis. This doesn’t happen all at once. Think of it as a layer by layer removal. After the process, the underlying dermal tissue is exposed.
We may schedule a series of treatment sessions. There’s little to no downtime for the client. In the weeks following the treatment, visual improvement in skin texture is noticed. Because the body accelerates the production of collagen in the skin layers where microdermabrasion is performed, the overall tone improves, and the skin surface soon becomes far more taut and supple.
This type of skin resurfacing treatment has its advantages over other treatments. The lower dermal layers aren’t exposed to the abrasive resurfacing, so there’s no chance of unwanted tissue damage. Unlike other treatments, microdermabrasion doesn’t bleach the skin. It’s gentler than other methods as well.
