Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion

This is a minimally invasive procedure that renews skin tone and texture.
An abrasive material like fine particles of diamond chips, sodium bicarbonate or aluminum oxide crystals is sprayed on the affected skin with a handpiece. A vacuum attached to the instrument sucks away the dead skin as it gets dislodged from the surface due to abrasion. The abrasive action stimulates the top layers of the skin to exfoliate.

  • Microdermabrasion improves skin in various conditions like:
  1. Wrinkles
  2. Scarring
  3. Fine lines
  4. Sun damage
  5. Age Spots
  6. Melasma
  7. Acne scarring
  8. Uneven skin tone
  9. Stretch marks
  10. Dull skin.
  • It is also done at regular intervals like a maintenance procedure to delay the signs of aging.

How is microdermabrasion performed and who does it?

Microdermabrasion is an in-office procedure performed usually by certified skincare expert. The procedure generally lasts an hour. No anesthesia is needed.

You are made to sit in a reclining chair as the expert starts spraying the particles gently to sand away the outer layer of the targeted skin. A moisturizer and sunscreen are applied to your skin at the end of the procedure.

Types of Microdermabrasion:

  1. Crystal Microdermabrasion.
  2. Crystal-free Microdermabrasion.
  3. Hydra dermabrasion.

Various devices are used for this procedure

Diamond-tip handpiece

This type of device is generally used in facial areas that are sensitive; like near the eyes. A diamond-tip handpiece gently exfoliates dead cells in your skin and at the same time, it suctions them off.

Crystal microdermabrasion

Aluminum oxide, sodium bicarbonate and other types of crystals may be used for this procedure. Crystal microdermabrasion sprays fine crystals which rub away the outer layers of skin. The dead skin cells are removed by suction.

Hydradermabrasion

This procedure involves crystal-free exfoliation with a simultaneous dermal infusion. This process increases blood flow to your skin. It also stimulates the production of collagen which improves the skin health significantly.

Likely side effects of microdermabrasion

You may develop mild tenderness, redness, and swelling that will disappear within a few hours post-treatment.

Using a moisturizer helps to minimize dry and flaky skin. Minor bruises may occur.

Advantages:

  • Minimally invasive.
  • No downtime.
  • Quick and convenient procedure.
Precautions to follow after microdermabrasion
  • Hydrate your skin with gentle skin care products.
  • It is advisable not to use topical medications for a couple of days after treatment. So consult your dermatologist on the post-procedure products that you can use.
  • Protect your skin with sunscreen for a few weeks at least.

Noticeable results like textural improvement are seen immediately post procedure. Multiple sessions might be needed depending on the severity of the skin concerns to get desirable results.

When Microdermabrasion is done as a maintenance procedure, it is done once in 30 – 40 days.
