Microdermabrasion Benefits

Jul 11, 2008
One of today's skin care treatments which has continued to grow in popularity is a procedure known as microdermabrasion. Simply put it can be described as facial sandblasting or facial vacuuming these descriptions refer to the two methods / functions of the microdermabrasion machine. Primarily the machine creates a circular air flow that forces aluminum oxide crystals to be blasted onto the skin's surface which are then sucked back up together with the resulting debris. The debris consists mainly of the crystals but includes dead and dying skin cells. The overall result is the removal of the very top layer of skin.

If performed by a suitably qualified person Microdermabrasion, a professional non-invasive cosmetic procedure, carries few, if any, risks. Skin is an extremely complicated organ of the body and to gain the most benefits from the procedure it is vitally important that the operative has a greater understanding of it. Because of this fact the best results are, inevitably, gained in the salon,spa or clinic but it can now be performed by almost anybody in the comfort of their own home using equipment that costs around $200.

The skin on our face is continually exposed to the elements and can often appear dull and lifeless however, following only a single treatment, your skin can be transformed into a more youthful and radiant look. To gain the most benefit further treatments will be required but you will immediately notice that the number of open pores has dramatically decreased producing and there is a healthy sheen to the surface of your skin. Sometimes, immediately following the treatment, some folk notice a reddish look to the skin. This is nothing to worry about as it fade very quickly to a fresh and healthy glow.

Microdermabrasion is well known to be extremely effective against the formation of acne. Acne begins with the formation of 'comedones' (a comedo is a plug which blocks the opening of the pore found in both blackheads and whiteheads). Microdermabrasion blasts away these comedones and deep cleans the skin to such a degree that the risk of a fresh outbreak of acne in that area is vastly reduced.

The fact that treating, with microdermabrasion, those areas of skin which do not have active acne it will become less prone to a fresh outbreak. Having the treatment on a regular basis decreases the formation of comedones to such a degree that it can completely stop an acne breakout.

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.

Many people find that after acne they are, sometimes, left with scarring. Luckily microdermabrasion can be very effective at removing (or vastly reducing the visibility of) acne scars. As well as removing acne scars it can also remove other skin blemishes and also have a profound effect upon freckles. However most people know of the treatment because of it's excellent reputation for being able to remove spider and fine lines together with fine wrinkles. It can also greatly reduce the visibility of deeper wrinkles.

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?
