Microdermabrasion is a gentle exfoliation of the outer layer of skin. It stimulates collagen, helps with elasticity, and also reduces the appearance of fine lines.
Microdermabrasion helps make skin smoother, healthier, and improves texture.
Over time, the skin is going to start showings its age. While there are different ways you can use specialty products and creams to maintain your skin for as long as possible, there are some issues that you just can’t avoid, especially depending on how much time you spend in the sun and what you end up doing for a living. One such service you can use though to correct these issues is known as microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a process that uses small exfoliating crystals that are directly sprayed onto the skin.
Typically, this sort of skin process is used in order to enhance dull and gray skin and remove brown and age spots as well. This, however, should not be confused with dermabrasion, as dermabrasion is slightly different, where a surgeon essentially sands down your skin in order to remove a smooth layer of skin. With the microdermabrasion process though the most common areas are the décolleté, neck and face, however the procedure may be applied anywhere on the body where you can use it and when it is going to prove the most helpful.
An esthetician can use microdermabrasion on any type of skin or skin tone. There is not going to be any sort of change in the skin color and it is not going to leave scarring, which is desirable for anyone who wants to return to work or their daily life (the procedure typically takes 30-45 minutes). Certain skin treatments and procedures can require an individual to stay out of the sun and even away from general work for an extended period of time, but that is not the case with microdermabrasion. Please be aware that microdermabrasion is not something that is going to work with deep scars, wrinkles, deep acne scars or extensive wrinkles. A free consultation is available where an Azia Medical Spa esthetician can determine if Microdermabrasion is right for you.
There really is no downtime with microdermabrasion. The skin after a microdermabrasion treatment is going to be slightly pink due to the exfoliation process, but within 24 hours it is going to completely recover. It also doesn’t require any sort of surgery or anesthetics, which is perfect for someone that really doesn’t have much free time in their day.
The microdermabrasion process is rather straightforward. Basically, it uses the tiny crystals that are sprayed onto the skin in order to remove the outer layer of the skin. The technique is gentle and doesn’t require any sort of numbing agent. Basically, it is just a more direct exfoliation process than what you might have used during daily showers and facial scrubs. Right after the process, your skin is going to feel a bit dry and tight, kind of like you have slight sunburn, but after 24 hours this feeling will go away. It is important to use moisturizer though and to stay away from certain make-up for 24 hours (your esthetician can point out what products should be avoided for the day).
