The skin’s texture and appearance are both enhanced with microdermabrasion. Stretch marks, skin discoloration, UV damage, and acne scars can all be treated with it microdermabrasion in the field of SOMATOLOGY/HEALTH AND SKINCARE/ AESTHETICS.
Microdermabrasion does have some treatment restrictions, though. Particularly, it cannot completely eliminate wrinkles and is ineffective in treating severe or cystic acne. To help you make an informed decision about receiving treatment, this blog will explain the technique, its benefits, and its drawbacks.
A therapist qualified in HEALTH AND SKINCARE/SOMATOLOGY/AESTHETICS will use a portable instrument during a microdermabrasion procedure to delicately remove the top layer of skin.
Procedures come in two different varieties. With one, the machine spreads small exfoliating crystals across your skin while a vacuum system draws the crystals and the loosening or dead skin back into the machine. The other kind of therapy involves the practitioner gently exfoliating your skin with a diamond-tip wand.
Each session lasts between 30 and 40 minutes. As the process eliminates the superficial skin cells, you can experience a moderate scratching or “sanding” feeling.
You will be instructed to apply sunscreen after the operation because your skin will be more susceptible to the sun’s rays.
Therapists in the field of SOMATOLOGY/HEALTH AND SKINCARE/ AESTHETICS can perform microdermabrasion. There are also kits for at-home microdermabrasion, but these are less efficient and don’t penetrate the skin as deeply.
Microdermabrasion can improve the tone and texture of your skin since it exfoliates deeply. If you undergo a series of treatments, as is advised, you should see an evening out of your skin tone. The appearance of fine lines and superficial wrinkles may soften. Additionally, microdermabrasion can improve the efficacy of anti-aging products and help prevent UV damage.
Even while severe or inflammatory acne cannot be treated with microdermabrasion, minor acne can be improved with a series of treatments that help stop the development of comedones. Additionally, it can aid in reducing oiliness and minimizing big pores.
Therapists in SOMATOLOGY/HEALTH AND SKINCARE/ AESTHETICS recommend microdermabrasion because you are able to reduce post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, or dark acne scars that persist after a pimple has healed, in some people using this treatment
The majority of people undergo several microdermabrasion procedures. A normal schedule consists of five to sixteen treatments, separated by a week or more, depending on the cause of the treatments.
But there are limitations to what microdermabrasion can fix; it’s not a miracle cure.
For instance, severe or cystic acne cannot be treated with microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion can aggravate acne that is already irritated, making it seem and feel worse.
Deep acne scars, such as ice pick or boxcar scars, won’t be improved by microdermabrasion.
It can sometimes make keloid or hypertrophic scars worse and cannot be used to flatten either type of scar. Your dermatologist may be able to cure your acne scars more effectively than microdermabrasion would.
