What Is Microdermabrasion
Who doesn’t want better skin? Well, there are a lot of procedures out there which can cater towards better skin: one of the many processes is microdermabrasion.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure which involves rolling the skin with an applicator which has small spikes on it, not big enough to hurt your skin, but effective enough to make micro-abrasions in your skin. These small holes in your skin are very effective for cell regeneration and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Microdermabrasion helps to improve skin texture and overall appearance.
Procedure of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion may sound like a scary procedure, but it is not painful at all. It is very minimally invasive.
When the micro tool is applied on your skin, and the pores are punctured, this acts as a signal for the skin that the skin is being injured and the process of new cell generation occurs. This is a speedy process for skin cell renewal. Once the skin is punctured, special serums are applied which helps to rejuvenate the skin and promote better skin health. The tool is positioned at a certain point, so it punctures the skin in a proper way, which will help the skin to heal itself, rather than making the skin worse.
By the process of microdermabrasion, the old skin cells are fluffed off and new skin comes forth, giving you the look of a polished and smoother skin. Microdermabrasion is an excellent technique if you are looking to improve your skin and make it look youthful again.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Here are some benefits of microdermabrasion.
1. It Is Great for Reducing Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Microdermabrasion makes the skin look youthful and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. During microdermabrasion the punctured skin gets sanded off and new skin develops. This process quickens the cell turnover and renewal, making wrinkle-free and youthful skin emerge from underneath.
2. Amazing for Sun Damage
Microdermabrasion is an amazing process to lighten and brighten your skin tone and get rid of excessive sun damage. During microdermabrasion, the old and damaged skin gets fluffed off and new skin emerges, so microdermabrasion is an excellent way to exfoliate your skin. Of course, microdermabrasion is a more extensive exfoliation process, but it helps a lot to get rid of old skin and promote better skin health.
3. Great for Enlarged Pores
If your pores are large you can reduce their size by microdermabrasion. This technique involves using applicators with different sized abrasions to give a unique result every single time. Your pore size will reduce within the first few sessions and you will feel a significant difference in your skin texture as well.
Things to Be Cautious of After Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion does have some limitations, some of which are:
1. The skin should not be exposed to sun right after the treatment. Sun exposure can make your skin burn, especially after microdermabrasion, when the skin is very sensitive.
2. You cannot wax or shave the area which has undergone microdermabrasion, otherwise it can have severe side effects.
3. Your skin might be red after microdermabrasion, and that is completely normal. Swollen and tender skin is also one of the side effects post-procedure. It should go away after some days.
