In theory Microdermabrasion is one of the simplest procedure available to dermatologists and cosmetic medicine professionals. In practice, the technique demands a lot of attention and expertise.
Microdermabrasion is very popular in cosmetic medicine circles because of the fact that it is one of the safest techniques that offer a wide range of benefits to the patients. In many cases, this technique is enough on its own to resurface skin and reduce wrinkles and discoloration.
For many patients, the most attractive feature of the process is the cost. Given a typical Microdermabrasion session, the apparent benefits far exceed the prices charged by the clinic. The technique is very efficient in removing early signs of aging and minor skin issues. Many people opt for the technique because of its invigorating effect on the skin. Many people have compared the procedure to getting a completely new skin
What does the process involve?
In very simple terms, Microdermabrasion strips away the dead cells and encrusted grime from the face. The main aim of the procedure is to even out the skin by removing all accumulated deposits from the pores. This leaves the skin with a clean look. The resulting improvement in softness and texture of the skin is very noticeable.
The process is carried out by using hand held natural and synthetic abrasive tipped rotary instruments. The speed of the rotation is controlled by the machine while the depth of the procedure that determines how much skin is removed, is determined by the person administering the process. The pressure applied during the process determines the depth of the abrasive action of the instruments.
Microdermabrasion is one of the few procedures in cosmetic medicine that has a very high involvement of the person providing the service. The success of the treatment is highly dependent on the skill and experience of this person.
Another attraction of the procedure is the lack of any special pre procedure preparations. This means that the patients could come in on their convenience and get the procedure done without any disruptions in their normal routine. The person administering the procedure often does a light cleansing of the skin to provide a clean surface.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Perhaps, the most important benefit of the procedure is the quick results that are visible as the patient is walking out of the clinic. This is one of the most important aspects of the procedure. The patients develop a very high level of trust in the clinic and the procedure because the impact of the procedure is very visible.
Many experts recommend that a sunscreen should be the only precaution after a Microdermabrasion session. The new layer of skin is very sensitive to elements, particularly sunlight.
The procedure is completely painless. For many people who associate pain with many cosmetic medicine procedures, this is an important factor for opting for Microdermabrasion.
The process of Microdermabrasion is highly developed to ensure the best possible skin resurfacing at the most economical costs.
