Microdermabrasion for Facial Rejuvenation

Whenever you find yourself wondering if there is an easy method available to rejuvenate the skin on your face, you might want to consider microdermabrasion. This treatment is one of the top choices of both healthcare professionals and patients alike for providing the skin with a rejuvenated look that includes a smoother texture and more even tone.

Microdermabrasion should not be confused with dermabrasion. It is much less aggressive than dermabrasion and, as a result, allows individuals to get back to their normal lives much more quickly. Dermabrasion is done by using a hand-held device to basically sand off the outer cells of the skin. This can cause discomfort and take a week or longer before the patient can get back to their normal routine. Microdermabrasion allows you to enjoy the benefits of skin rejuvenation without having to worry about downtime.

Microdermabrasion gently removes the dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin. As a result, the healthier skin underneath is revealed. In addition, the process also cleans the pores and promotes blood flow. This helps increase the level of collagen present in the lower layers of the skin. Increasing the collagen level gives tightness and firmness to the skin, thereby reducing or eliminating some of the fine lines and wrinkles that come with aging.

Collagen is a substance that is naturally produced in the skin. It helps hold tissue together while also giving the skin a firm appearance. The body naturally decreases its level of collagen production as it ages. This impacts the appearance of facial skin as it will begin to sag. Hence, the wrinkles start to show up. By stimulating the production of collagen, the skin basically rejuvenates itself. The appearance of fullness and tightness returns and becomes more like what it was before the collagen level began to drop.

This is a quick treatment; it typically takes 30 to 40 minutes for the face and 20 minutes for the neck. After the treatment is finished and we moisturize your skin, you will be able to go back to your daily routine. We will also let you know what steps you can take after your appointment to ensure you get the best results possible.

Microdermabrasion is beneficial for the treatment of uneven skin tone, age spots, dark spots left behind by acne and a dull complexion. It gives the skin a smoother texture and more uniform appearance. Since this process allows for deeper penetration of skin products, many patients use it to greatly enhance their skin care routine.
