Microdermabrasion, also referred to as mechanical exfoliation or micro resurfacing, is a method for facial rejuvenation that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation along with adjustable suction to sweep away the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. It is a non-invasive procedure, which is performed in-office by a trained skin care professional. Candidates include individuals struggling with sun damage, acne prone and blotchy skin, fine scars, slight wrinkles, keratoses, large pores, non-inflamed whiteheads caused by keratin-clogged pores, or unfavorable skin texture.
The exfoliation and suctioning disrupts the skin’s surface causing cell division. As the skin cells divide fibroblast activity is stimulated leading to collagen production, which leads to thicker, firmer skin. Human skin sloughs off at a slower rate with age, so the exfoliation of several layers of the stratum corneum (surface skin layers) leaves skin fresh and radiant. Microdermabrasion can be done to decrease the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, photo-damage, diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and shallow acne scars, which helps to even out the texture. Removing the dead skin will aid in the penetration of skin care products by up to 50% and makeup will go on much more smoothly.
Microdermabrasion is not recommended for people with the following conditions: active bacterial, viral or fungal skin infections (such as cold sores, shingles, impetigo, cellulitis, folliculitis) if you suffer from any open skin lesions, rashes or burns if you have extensive telangiectasia (broken capillaries) or rosacea you should not consider microdermabrasion.
The microdermabrasion exfoliation process worsens rosacea symptoms (redness, itchiness, flaking). You should consider an IPL skin rejuvenation treatment instead. history of problems with healing and excessive scarring (keloids) you should not undergo a microdermabrasion procedure if you have had a recent facelift.
You also need to wait at least ten (10) days post Botox or filler injections such as Restylane, Juvéderm or Radisse into your skin. if your skin is very sensitive, other methods of exfoliation and skin rejuvenation should be considered.
you should not undergo a microdermabrasion procedure if you have any immune system deficiencies or suffer from HIV and AIDS, Hepatitis C, Lupus or skin cancer.
If you are considering having Microdermabrasion before a holiday or last treatment before a wedding ( courses are recommended), please come a week before those event for the maximum result to show. Considering also the time for your skin to fully heal from sensitivity.
