What is Microdermabrasion ?
It is a question many people ask when inquiring about various skin treatments. Microdermabrasion is performed with a machine that uses light crystal or diamond abrasion materials to remove the outer dead layer of the skin.
Microdermabrasion can be performed by oneself at home. After a microdermabrasion treatment, the skin is left clean and fresh. This is in contrast to a typical alternative treatment –dermabrasion.
Dermabrasion treatment is usually performed on an outpatient basis by a doctor or trained practitioner. Sandpaper is used to literally abrade the skin which can lead more discomfort and the use of localized anaesthetics and or sedation is typical. Microdermabrasion is less painful and does not require any anaesthetic.
With age, our skin gets thicker due to accumulation of layers of dead cells on it. Microdermabrasion not only stops the regrowth of these cells but leaves the skin smooth and soft as well. It is just like pruning the dead branches or bark of a tree to give it a renewed healthy life. With the help of microdermabrasion, you just do the same thing by removing layers of dead cells, scars, and acnes on skin and providing it with improved healing ability and new growing cells. The success of removing dead cells with microdermabrasion is well documented. If one has elevated scarring or acne, these types of skin problems can be “levelled” through microdermabrasion therapy leaving minimal post treatment markings.
If one has deep acne scars or craters that reside deep in the skin, treatment with microdermabrasion is less effective. Microdermabrasion can help rid one of those hard-to-remove scars but it generally takes more time. Moderate cases of dead cells on the skin can be treated in a few sessions while it might take more sessions for more severe skin cases.
Those, who have taken either Isotretinoin or Accutane medication in the past one year, should avoid microdermabrasion. It is advisable for someone who has cleared acne at anytime with the help of Accutane to avoid microdermabrasion for removal of scars. There are sebaceous glands in our skin that produce sebum. Accutane clears acne by removing sedum which in turn reduces the skin’s curative capabilities. If you use microdermabrasion just after using Accutane, there are chances that the affected area of the skin might get permanent scars. Before using microdermabrasion, it is recommended to wait for least a year. So the bottom line is, if you have used Isotretinoin or Accutane at anytime, before proceeding with microdermabrasion check with your doctor.
Diamond microdermabrasion also works the same way as crystal microdermabrasion i.e. sucking the dirt and dead cells with the help of a vacuum tube but diamond microdermabrasion is far more effective as it does not cause any harsh irritation on the skin. Several exfoliator kits are available in the market that claim to offer effective microdermabrasion treatment but these treatments help the skin glow from outside without healing it from the inside. Moreover, such exfoliator type machines are likely to cause redness and irritation at the treated area.
Microdermabrasion At Home
With microdermabrasion at home you need not rely on any professional salon or clinic to give your skin a fresh appearance. These effective and affordable systems not only help in removing layers of dead cells on the skin but also serve to build and nourish the new cells. It is a completely painless procedure that can be performed at the convenience of your own home. Most of the microdermabrasions available in the market exfoliate and scrap the skin without much irritation. Do not be under the impression that home microdermabrasion systems are not as effective as those used in spas. These products are designed to not only stimulate the skin cells but also treat wrinkles, acne, and fine lines on the face. With the use of microdermabrasion at home, your skin is sure to appear youthful and glowing.
You may find some creams in market that claim to be microdermabrasion tools but these are just exfoliates. They do a good job in terms of offering the skin a glowing look but they do not remove the dead skin completely. Microdermabrasion treatments leave no scars or fine lines on the skin but there are chances that they may cause a little irritation and redness.
There are a number of skin products, particularly moisturizers, out there that can do wonders in preserving your skin for longer periods of time. Using these in combination with microdermabrasion can have magnificent effects on the skin. With microdermabrasion at home, you need not spend a fortune in expensive health spas. You can avail of all the wonderful advantages of microdermabrasion while sitting in the comforts of your home. The myth that only celebrities can have the privilege to benefit from microdermabrasion has become a thing of the past.
Most Microdermabrasion at home kits scrub the face using aluminum oxide crystals. Such at-home versions are definitely safe and can show good exfoliation results on the skin. However, although microdermabrasions at home have shown effective results, it is recommended to consult your dermatologist before use. This is especially necessary if you have sensitive skin since some ingredients and medicines used in the products provided inside these kits might increase sensitivity
