Microdermabrasion has been able to help individuals deal with a wide variety of skin issues, such as signs of aging and uneven texture. So if you are bothered by blotchy skin, mild scarring, or sunspots and wrinkles on your face, microdermabrasion can be all you need to help you deal with these irritating skin problems.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
The very first question that most people have about this treatment is how it actually works. The treatment is very simple. While most microdermabrasion techniques involve spraying crystals on the skin, the Diamondtome system provided at our medical spa offers a much gentler method by using nothing more than a diamond-tipped wand to exfoliate the skin.
This treatment can be used on many different areas of the body, including the face, arms, chest, neck, hands, and back. By simultaneously removing dull, dead skin cells and encouraging collagen production, microdermabrasion actively helps your skin look younger.
Is Microdermabrasion Right for You?
Only you can answer this question. However, if you are dealing with issues such as acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and dull skin, this treatment can help. The great thing about this treatment is that it increases the collagen production in your skin, which improves its elasticity. This leaves your skin looking fresh, bright, and firm.
While you will definitely be able to notice a change in your skin after just one treatment, microdermabrasion can produce even better results after undergoing multiple treatment sessions. The exact number of treatment sessions needed varies from patient to patient depending on their skin issues and individual goals, so our medical professional will help you decide during your consultation.
Something else that you may be wondering about is if you have to do anything to prepare for the treatment. Thankfully, this is a treatment that does not require you to do much beforehand. You do not need to take any kind of medication before your session. However, it may be beneficial to temporarily stop waxing or using skin products prior to your appointment, as this can help you achieve better results. We can let you know about any steps you may need to take to prepare for treatment during your consultation.
If you are looking for a simple, effective, non-invasive way to improve the tone and texture of your skin, microdermabrasion is one of the best ways to do it.
