How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

Microdermabrasion Treatment

Microdermabrasion is the most suitable treatment for patients who want to have younger-looking skin without going through a surgical procedure, chemical contact, or injections. It is a painless treatment that will remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells that makes your appearance dull and uneven.

Microdermabrasion is one of the safest and non-invasive procedures of skin resurfacing in which damaged skin is removed to reveal new and glowing skin. Today, we will discuss its procedure in detail so that you can better understand the treatment.

So, let’s begin!

How does it work?

Microdermabrasion does not take long and is a quick procedure. It does not involve any pain or incisions so you don’t need anesthesia during the procedure. Your doctor will use equipment that is like a spatula for sloughing off the dead and damaged cells of the skin from the uppermost layer. It does not cause any damage to healthy skin. Your doctor ensures that your skin has enough moisture by using special hydrators. During the procedure, the blood flow is also triggered.

Who can opt for Microdermabrasion?

You can opt for microdermabrasion treatment if;

  • Your skin has an irregular texture.
  • You have large pores
  • You are experiencing age spots and pigmentation issues.
  • You have sagging skin on the face, neck, and chest.

Who should not opt for microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is not a very good option for you if;

  • You are pregnant
  • You are prone to cold sores and blisters
  • You are suffering from any medical or skin conditions, like rosacea, dermatitis or allergy.

How you should prepare for microdermabrasion?

Your doctor will let you know about the pre-treatment instructions in the initial consultation that you need to follow. However, here are a few general instructions that you must follow to avoid any complications and get the best results.

  • Share your detailed medical history with your doctor.
  • Protect your skin from sun exposure, use a strong sunscreen to avoid sun damage.
  • Stop using blood-thinning medications before the procedure.
  • You will have to follow a prescribed skincare regimen
  • Stop waxing or harsh exfoliation before the procedure.

What to expect after treatment?

You may feel redness or swelling on the treated skin for some time after the treatment. These effects will subside in a day or two. There are no long term side-effects associated with the procedure.

What is the downtime?

The microdermabrasion treatment does not require downtime as other skin treatments may do. However, in rare cases, a patient might experience slight pinkness of the skin or swelling which goes away in 24 hours. If you feel any change in the skin that your dermatologist has not told you to expect, call, or consult your dermatologist right away to avoid any complications.
