An undesirable complexion can cause many cosmetic concerns that include pre-mature aging, enlarged pores and dull skin.
Although many over-the-counter remedies are available for poor skin texture, they may not be as effective as professional treatment. At Destination Aesthetics, we provide a variety of skin-care procedures that target many of the concerns that you may have about your skin. Microdermabrasion is one such technique that we use to thoroughly alleviate mild to moderate skin problems and rejuvenate appearance.
The Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Receiving a microdermabrasion is gentle and comfortable, and it works best on skin that has become susceptible to a dull skin tone or texture. Additionally, the procedure can treat those with oily skin, clogged pores and minor acne scars.Microdermabrasion is performed on an out-patient basis and can be completed in one 30-minute office visit to Destination Aesthetics. Most clients notice a difference in their skin immediately after treatment, and because of its affordability, many people receive microdermabrasion regularly.
Other benefits of microdermabrasion include:
- Radiant and clear skin
- Increased blood flow
- Minimal downtime
- Gentle and easy treatment
- Safe and highly effective
A microdermabrasion can also improve the effectiveness of other products used on the skin. Anti-aging creams and other skin-care products can penetrate the skin more efficiently after microdermabrasion has been performed. The treatment can be used on any skin color and will generally produce the best results for those with relatively moderate skin conditions.
The Microdermabrasion Procedure
Microdermabrasion treatment works by using a diamond-tip suction hand piece to remove the outermost layer of skin, which is what usually contains the cosmetic concerns most apparent on the face and body. Removing this layer of skin agitates underlying layers and enacts a natural healing process using a protein called collagen. The collagen in the skin promotes the creation of new and healthy skin cells, which help eliminate the appearance of skin conditions. Essentially, microdermabrasion uses the body’s own biological functions to improve the skin’s texture and tone.
During the procedure, a hand-held abrasion tool is used on the skin in conjunction with a slight suction technique, which aids in removing the dead skin cells. The abrasion device can be adjusted to an individual’s unique skin-type, making it a safe treatment that ensures vibrant results. Many clients who receive microdermabrasion experience a slight pinching sensation, but otherwise the procedure is relatively painless. Once the procedure is complete, you may notice a dry or tight feeling in your skin, which may last up to 24 hours. Using moisturizers and care instructions suggested to you by the Destination Aesthetics staff will ensure that your skin heals properly.
Microdermabrasion Risks and Side-Effects
When performed by a professional, microdermabrasion should not produce any side-effects in the skin, and clients can typically resume regular activities immediately following the procedure. Usually side-effects occur when the abrasion tool is not properly sanitized, which could increase chances of infection. However, a licensed professional in a medical environment will ensure that the procedure is performed in the safest manner possible.
Typically, anyone with noticeable skin conditions that are causing decreased self-esteem can receive microdermabrasion. Even individuals who simply wish to maintain a healthy skin-care regiment may wish to complete microdermabrasion treatment regularly. There are, however, some instances when microdermabrasion may not be appropriate, including the diagnosis of severe skin conditions, diabetes or any auto-immune disorders. It is best to participate in a thorough consultation to determine whether microdermabrasion is right for you.
