Considering The Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Apr 3, 2008
Many people have now heard of the skin care treatment called microdermabrasion as it is one of the most popular skin care treatments in both Europe and America at the moment. Microdermabrasion employs the use of a special machine which creates a strong circular flow of air down a tube out through a wand and onto the face and then back up into the machine. Fine medical grade aluminum oxide crystals are mixed into the air to remove the top layer of dead skin cells which are collected, along with the crystals, back into the machine.

Microdermabrasion is a professional non-invasive cosmetic procedure which carries few risks if performed correctly by suitably qualified personnel. Though the process is rather simple a complete understanding of the skin is necessary to gain the most benefits from the treatments. Although it can now be performed by almost anybody in the comfort of their own home using equipment that costs around $200 the best results are often gained in the salon,spa or clinic.

One of the most immediate benefits that you will notice is the increased tightness of the skin and the fresh look and feel of it. Immediately following a session the skin can sometimes appear slightly red but this quickly settles to a healthy glow. Your skin will also have a nice sheen and far fewer open pores giving an incredibly youthful appearance which can improve of a course of treatments.

Acne sufferers are becoming increasingly aware of the incredible benefits they can gain from having regular microdermabrasion treatments. Although acne is not yet fully understood there has been much discovered in recent years. Part of the development process of acne is the formation of comedones, which are the plugs found blocking pores in blackheads and whiteheads. By using microdermabrasion regularly you can remove comedones and stop them from forming thus reducing new acne.

Acne can destroy a persons life, a once happy outgoing child can become something of a recluse and highly susceptible to depression. The fact that treating the areas of skin without active acne with microdermabrasion it can become less prone to a fresh outbreak. By having the treatment regularly this can almost halt it completely. This incredible fact makes this benefit one of the most important.

Because we understand so little about acne there is not a general cure all treatment and, in most cases, a selection of treatments may be used. This has led to a number of treatments being developed and, because it appears to be extremely effective, microdermabrasion is quickly becoming known as one of the best ways to bring acne under control.

There are many benefits of microdermabrasion and the most important are mentioned above but other benefits include the visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Furthermore it is extremely effective at reducing the visibility (or removing completely) of acne scars and other blemishes.

The truth is that microdermabrasion has a great many benefits, so many in fact, that virtually anybody would benefit after only a few appointments at their local medical spa or clinic. Because it is so popular the cost of the treatment has restocked slightly in recent years, especially in areas of increased competition and now more than ever it is within the range of almost all budgets. If you have considered it too expensive in the past maybe it is time to take another look?
