Before and After Microdermabrasion

Mar 20, 2008
Every year there are new skin care products coming onto the market. Usually these creams use the latest techniques and ingredients. Nearly always it is found that the new product costs more money than the older products available. One of the most popular descriptive terms used in skin care creams at the moment is 'microdermabrasion'.

Clinical tests, under laboratory conditions, have proven that microdermabrasion can remove fine lines and wrinkles as well as being highly effective in the fight against other signs of aging. It can also help greatly in clearing up acne outbreaks. The whole process is rather simple, a special machine forces a stream of air down a tube to which very fine, but highly abrasive, crystals are added. When these crystals hit the skin they painlessly remove the very top layer and any other debris.

As microdermabrasion is one of the most popular skin care treatment it can be found in most spas and clinics. Only a few years ago it was relatively unknown in the USA but now it can be seen almost everywhere. Even skin care creams are said to be 'microdermabrasion' but in reality they often offer little more than very strong exfoliation of the skin.

Competition in the area of microdermabrasion is very strong and every salon, spa and clinic is fighting to gain your custom. So great is this competition that nearly everyone has a web site advertising their establishment. Sadly some over exaggerate their results when there is little need to.

Most web sites show photographs of their products and in skin care most show before and after photographs to show improvements. When viewing such images it is important to study them closely as they have, sometimes, been manipulated to show increased benefits. The most common trick is to use slightly different lighting and make-up which enhances the look of the person in the after photograph. Ideally the conditions must be the same in both images to give a true picture of the result. A popular trick in microdermabrasion photographs is to have the model screw her face up for the before shot and then stretch the face for the after shot thus showing less wrinkles etc. Sometimes such instances may be purely by accident but you need to be aware.

Basing your decision on only an establishments before and after microdermabrasion photographs would be rather foolish. Sometimes it might be the site's designer that messed things up and the place might have an excellent reputation. Ask your family and friends if they know anyone who has been there or if they have heard anything about them. You should also ask for any customer testimonials or further before and after photos that they may have.

Microdermabrasion is considered a, non invasive, cosmetic treatment and it is therefore extremely important that you investigate any clinic, salon or spa in which you plan to have your microdermabrasion treatments. It is common for qualified personnel to have any certificates, that they have earned, openly on display. They are usually on the wall so it should be easy enough to look at them closely to check if they are relevant. The person performing the treatment will, in most cases, have been trained on it's correct usage.

You will be happy to know that mostly all spas, clinics or salons that include microdermabrasion in their list of services employ highly trained and vastly experienced technicians or surgeons. A respectable reputation means everything with such establishments to try their best to make sure you get the best possible results. Before any treatment is carried out you will need to attend a short consultation during which you will have your skin examined to determine it's type. Before and after treatments will be discussed and it will also be explained to you what would be the most likely outcome of the treatment in your case. Once everything is sorted and it is clear what to expect you can go ahead and book your first session of microdermabrasion.
