How Microdermabrasion Benefits Your Face

By January 17, 2017Facial Rejuvenation

Microdermabrasion is one of the top dermatology treatments in the country, thanks to the affordable price point and the long list of benefits it can provide to those with minor to moderate skin issues. This procedure is still an excellent option for those who see the early signs of aging, redness, roughness, dullness, or other issues when they look in the mirror. Based on customer feedback for our popular microneedling and vampire facial procedures, we will be replacing microdermabrasion treatments with these two procedures in 2017; however, there is still plenty of time to get a treat microdermabrasion treatment in and take advantage of all these benefits.

Number One Benefit: Convenience

Microdermabrasion is one of the most convenient facial procedures, especially considering the results it can bring. It is frequently called the “lunchtime facial” because it takes roughly half an hour to complete one session of microdermabrasion. The procedure is non-surgical, doesn’t cause pain, and doesn’t require that you stay out of work for the rest of the day.

Long List of Treatment Areas

Microdermabrasion can treat a wide variety of issues or areas, including:

  • Dull skin
  • Overly oily skin
  • Clogged pores
  • Enlarged pores
  • Mild acne scars
  • Fine lines
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Redness
  • Poor circulation
  • Poor skin texture

Most patients see major results with just a single treatment, but a regimen of treatments results in lasting change.

Reverse Early Signs of Aging

Microdermabrasion is perfect for addressing the early signs of aging, such as fine lines, dullness, or creases. The exfoliation provided by microdermabrasion gets rid of the layers of skin that have been exposed to UV rays, leaving only younger-looking, fresher skin. Additionally, combining this procedure with other treatments like chemical peels can offer even better results. When the upper layer of tough skin is gone, new treatments can more easily penetrate deeply, and get better results.

Make Your Makeup Look Better

The skin that is beneath your upper layer is smoother, untouched skin that has never been pocked by acne or scarred by UV rays. This means that your makeup will lay over it smoothly, making your products look better and last longer. Don’t waste money on expensive new products when you can get all the amazing benefits of microdermabrasion in addition to improving your daily look.

Get All This Without the Pain

Microdermabrasion uses microscopic crystals to exfoliate the skin. Because these crystals are so small, and so closely sprayed onto the skin, your skin doesn’t feel any pain. Many clients report that microdermabrasion is akin to being licked by a cat. There’s no need to brace yourself for anything more painful, and you can easily go back to work or about your day without any lingering soreness.

Aftercare is Minimal

After you get a microdermabrasion treatment, the best thing you can do for your skin is to maintain a good skin care and moisturizing routine. Your clinician will be able to tell you more, but the point is to protect all the new skin that you’ve just revealed to the world. Keep it protected with sunscreen, keep it moisturized, and be sure to clean your makeup off every evening very well, and the effects of your microdermabrasion treatment will last for quite a long time. Your skin will be smooth, glowing, even, and beautiful.
