Who is a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?
Patients have reported mild scratching as the procedure removes the dead and loosened skin cells. Patients will experience a vibrating sensation, similar to that of a massage.
A microdermabrasion is a light “peel” used to remove the outer dead layer of skin, which requires no downtime. It may improve shallow acne scarring, skin tone and wrinkles. Dermabrasion is a much deeper procedure used to remove the deeper layers of the skin to treat harder-to-reach acne scars and deep wrinkles and generally requires a surgeon to perform the procedure.
After your microdermabrasion treatment, there will usually be some redness in the treated areas. This redness will fade quickly, and many patients return to work and normal activities the next day. There is generally little discomfort from a microdermabrasion session (though sometimes the areas of skin around the eyes can be extra sensitive). In those cases, sometimes ice can be applied to help with bruising, redness, or any discomfort the patient may suffer from.
Microdermabarsion is a great way to rejuvenate your skin–to reward it for all the hard work it does for you. With Mircodermabrasion, you can enjoy smooth, replenished skin. And because most of that is accomplished by your skin’s natural properties–by tricking it into rejuvenating instead of repairing–the results will also look quite natural. This means that people won’t notice all the work you’ve had done. Instead, they’ll just notice how great your skin looks.
