The Microdermabrasion Procedure
During the microdermabrasion procedure, which is usually performed by an aesthetician, a handheld device is used to transmit tiny crystals of aluminum oxide across the targeted treatment area. The crystals and dead skin are then suctioned away with a vacuum tool, revealing fresh underlying skin. A treatment session can last from five to 60 minutes. The results of a single microdermabrasion treatment are temporary. For continued improvement, treatment should be repeated every 2 to 4 weeks.
What Does Microdermabrasion Treat?
Microdermabrasion is used to treat a variety of mild-to-moderate skin problems, including acne, scarring, sun damage, age spots and fine wrinkles. Because it only affects the outermost layer of skin (epidermis), it is not effective for repairing deep tissue damage, or removing congenital marks, tattoos, moles and scars.
What Are The Benefits Of Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion safely and effectively, with no pain and no downtime, improves the color, tone and texture of skin.
Microdermabrasion is considered safe for all skin types, and is especially effective for Asian and dark-skinned patients who may be at risk for skin discoloration with other types of treatment.
The vacuum used during dermabrasion enhances circulation and lymph flow, rejuvenating the skin internally as well as externally.
Is It Necessary To Wear Sunscreen After Microdermabrasion Treatment?
After microdermabrasion is performed, the newly exposed layer of skin is vulnerable to sun damage, so wearing sunscreen is necessary. Avoiding the sun the first few days after treatment is recommended.
How Long Do Microdermabrasion’s Results Last?
Microdermabrasion’s results are temporary. To sustain results and/or for continued improvement, microdermabrasion should be repeated at 2- to 4-week intervals.
What Are The Risks Of Microdermabrasion?
There are no serious risks associated with microdermabrasion. Possible minor side effects of microdermabrasion include skin tightness, redness, minor bruising, fine broken blood vessels, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and cold sore reactivation around the lips. Patients older than 70 may have a slightly escalated risk of bruising and skin abrasions.
Dermapen is a type of medical grade microneedling technology used for facial and skin rejuvenation.
After numbing the skin with topical anesthetic, microneedling is applied to the skin for resurfacing purposes.
Microneedling can help blend hyper and hypo pigmented skin changes.
Microneedling can help minimize scaring, and is especially helpful for acne scarring.
PRP, platelet rich plasma, can be used in conjunction with microneedling, in order to promote a more intense healing.
The mechanism of microneedlings effectiveness is in penetrating through scarred/damaged/discolored skin, and allowing the healthy skin to grow through the microneeded regions. Multiple treatments are needed for increased benefit. There is no down time, and the next day redness can be covered with make-up and light concealer.
Microneedling and prp can be used for all skin types.
