Microdermabrasion For Skin Care
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive epidermal resurfacing procedure that aims to improve overall skin tone and texture. This popular treatment is widely available and is commonly used to address various cosmetic concerns, including uneven skin tone, photoaging, striae (stretch marks), melasma, and scars, including acne scars. It was first introduced in 1985 as a gentler alternative to chemical peels and dermabrasion, and since then, it has become one of the most common nonsurgical cosmetic procedures performed in the United States.
How Microdermabrasion Works:
During a microdermabrasion session at Valley Laser and Skin Clinic, a trained clinician or aesthetician will use a handheld device to gently exfoliate the skin’s top layer, known as the stratum corneum. The procedure can be performed using either crystal microdermabrasion, where microfine crystals are sprayed onto the skin and then vacuumed back up, or diamond microdermabrasion, which uses a diamond-tipped wand for exfoliation. The exfoliation process removes dead skin cells, promoting the growth of new, healthier skin with improved cosmesis. It is a relatively quick and painless procedure that typically does not require anesthesia.
The Benefits of Microdermabrasion:
Improved Skin Tone and Texture: Microdermabrasion can help even out skin tone and smooth the skin’s texture, leaving it feeling soft and radiant.
Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: This procedure has been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a more youthful look.
Diminished Acne and Acne Scars: Microdermabrasion can help improve acne-prone skin and reduce the visibility of acne scars.
Minimized Pores: Enlarged pores can be addressed through microdermabrasion, making the skin look more refined.
Improved Skin Permeability: Studies have indicated that microdermabrasion can enhance the delivery of topical medications, making them more effective.
Reduced Sun Damage: The procedure can fade hyperpigmentation, age spots, and other skin discolorations caused by sun exposure.
Softening of Stretch Marks: Microdermabrasion may help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Enhanced Skin “Glow”: Patients often report an improved skin “glow,” softness, and overall texture after the treatment.
