Looking for shinny and glowing skin, then Microdermabrasion is the best treatment. It is a good skin rejuvenation procedure. Let’s check the treatment more in detail.
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure in which a special machine applies a slightly rough applicator tip to the surface of the skin of the face or neck. Hence, this removes the uppermost layer. As a result, this allows the renewal of skin tone and texture.
Microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of:
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
If you’re considering microdermabrasion, your dermatologist will review your medical history. In fact, he will even conduct an examination to ensure you are a good candidate for it. Accordingly, the dermatologist will also discuss your expectations, optimum outcomes, and potential risks of the procedure as well as post-treatment skincare routine.
Microdermabrasion treatment proves to be effective in removing fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and acne scars
It helps with hyperpigmentation and age spots, melasma, and sun damage. Those with a dull complexion or an uneven skin tone can benefit from microdermabrasion as this technique improves the overall skin appearance. It is considered a safe treatment for most skin types and colours, and has minimal side effects. The microdermabrasion procedure takes about 15-20 MIN to complete and you can resume your daily routine immediately thereafter. Microdermabrasion achieves the removal of dead skin, deep exfoliation of the skin, and leads to an improved complexion.
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure in which a tool or applicator with an abrasive surface is used to remove the outermost layer of the skin. The other technique includes spraying fine particles of aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate with a suction, instead of using a tool with an abrasive surface. It is carried out by a licensed skin care professional or dermatologist at his/her office. Anesthesia or a numbing agent is not required. After the microdermabrasion procedure, sunscreen and moisturizer is applied on the skin. Microdermabrasion aftercare includes sun protection and hydration. Topical acne medications should be avoided for a few days after the treatment and only gentle skin care products should be used.
What Are the Types of Microdermabrasion?
There are three types of microdermabrasion, namely, crystal microdermabrasion, diamond-tip microdermabrasion, and hydro-microdermabrasion.
Crystal microdermabrasion is also called microcrystal dermabrasion. In this procedure, super-fine crystals are sent from the microdermabrasion machine through a tube into a glass or stainless steel wand and sprayed over the skin. The same wand is used in removing the crystals as well as the outer skin layer particles, which are vacuumed out.
Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is referred to as crystal-free microdermabrasion. In this procedure, a wand with a diamond-encrusted tip is run over the skin’s surface. The diamond tip sands away the skin’s outer layer. These removed skin particles are sent out through the same wand. Unlike the crystal microdermabrasion procedure in which crystals may be left behind on the skin, the diamond-tip microdermabrasion procedure does not leave crystals behind and is thus a cleaner and safer procedure.
Microdermabrasion Treatment Cost
One session of the microdermabrasion treatment costs around Rs.1000 to Rs.2000. The total cost of this treatment varies based on one’s skin condition, body area, and the number of sessions required.
How does microdermabrasion work?
It works on all skin types. It solves skin problems without causing any skin color changes or scarring. The tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin to remove the skin layer. You don’t need to apply any anesthetic creams to apply. It helps in skin exfoliation and skin rejuvenation to get healthy-looking skin.
Therefore, before starting the treatment pre-care is really important. Do take proper care.
- Avoid exfoliating creams three days prior to the procedure.
- Don’t go out to avoid sun exposure.
- Don’t go for waxing.
- Cleanse your face and neck with a non-soap-based cleanser.
To get good results, its really important to understand your skin and the procedure you going to do.
Therefore, after the treatment is over, follow the post-care guidelines given by your dermatologist.
- Keep new skin clean and moisturized.
- Protect skin with sunblock.
- Avoid direct sun exposure.
- Avoid scratching or picking new skin.
- Use a gentle cleanser.
- Avoid topical medicated creams for a few days.
Hence, any treatment is done, but its post-care is really important, don’t neglect it.
Microdermabrasion may rarely cause skin irritation and infection. Hence it is not a good option for people with medical conditions such as psoriasis, warts, lupus, and other skin disorders. Microdermabrasion is otherwise a painless and non-invasive procedure that results in smoother, clearer skin.
