Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure which combats the signs of aging on the skin. This procedure does not require any recovery time and instantly enhances the skins appearance by promoting the production of new skin cells while cleansing the pores and stimulating collagen production to improve the texture of the skin. The treatment can be done in the office by a skin care professional.

As we age, our skin cells slough off at a slower rate making our skin seem more dull and less bright. Microdermabrasion works by exfoliating the skin to loosen the dead surface skin while simultaneously spraying a medicated fluid on to the skin which will leave it smooth and revitalized. Microdermabrasion is a painless procedure that will impart you with younger looking skin by minimizing fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.

You may also be a good candidate for microdermabrasion if you have sun damage, scars from acne or chicken pox or enlarged pores. The microdermabrasion can actually decrease the size of the pores and make the pigment of the skin more even.

The entire treatment can be done in under and an hour and should be performed by a licensed aesthetician without the use of anesthesia. After cleaning the treatment area, the aesthetician will begin to exfoliate the skin while streaming fluid onto the surface of the skin. This takes off dead skin cells while imparting a vibrant and refreshing glow to the complexion at the same time. Clients also notice that their make-up goes on much more smoothly after the treatment.

There are few concerns when it comes to the complications of microdermabrasion as it is a non-invasive procedure. Other than a small amount of redness following the procedure, clients should see noticeably brighter skin almost immediately. Because of the non-invasive nature of the treatment, microdermabrasion requires no recovery time and clients can go back to their regular activities immediately. Sensitive skin may remain red for up to one day after the treatment. As you continue to get more treatments, the results become increasingly more noticeable.

Microdermabrasion is a good first step for someone looking to see a change in their skin without an invasive and potentially dangerous surgery. The minimal risks and the painless procedure make microdermabrasion a great tool for combating skin issues.
