As we age, our skin loses its natural plumpness and elasticity. This can lead to an increase in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It’s also common to notice a sallow appearance or loss of glow to your face. If you’re experiencing these issues, you don’t have to simply accept them. A skin resurfacing treatment known as microdermabrasion can restore the youthful glow to your face and improve your skin’s condition.
Microdermabrasion is a convenient and non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a hand-held device to slough off the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal the healthier skin beneath. There are two main types of microdermabrasion, which are crystal and diamond-tipped. Crystal dermabrasion employs a fine spray of tiny crystal fragments to polish the skin. The dead skin cells and crystals are then vacuumed away. With the diamond-tipped option, a hand-held device uses a circular motion to provide the abrasion needed to remove the top layer of skin cells. This option is more precise and better for delicate areas around the eyes.
How it Works to Increase Collagen
The gentle abrasion of microdermabrasion sloughs away the top layer of dead skin cells. You may notice some redness. This is normal. It will subside over a couple days to reveal brighter skin tone. Something unique also happens in this process. Collagen, the natural protein within skin that provides volume and elasticity, is stimulated. This boost gradually improves the overall health of your skin. You’ll likely notice an increase in fullness, along with firmer and more elastic texture.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
There are many benefits of microdermabrasion. The process actually improves circulation and nutrient delivery within your skin. This contributes to the glow you experience after treatment. You may also notice your skin care products absorb more fully into your skin once those dead cells are removed. Your creams and lotions will work better when they can penetrate more deeply. Microdermabrasion also removes blockages of dirt and debris that clog pores, leading to reduced pore size and healthier skin. The procedure is non-invasive and convenient. It’s performed in-office and can be done over your lunch break. There’s no downtime, so you can return to your regular activities right away. Microdermabrasion is safe with few side effects.
