How Good Is Microdermabrasion Skin Care?

Jul 13, 2008
Since it first appeared in Europe the skin care treatment known as microdermabrasion has grown in popularity year after year. Today it is one of the, if not the, most popular treatments on both sides of the Atlantic ocean. Utilizing a microdermabrasion machine fine crystals of aluminum oxide are blown, under pressure, onto the surface of the skin. The crystals remove the dead and dying skin cells on the surface which are then sucked back up into the machine.

Microdermabrasion is a professional non-invasive cosmetic procedure which is considered entirely safe if/when it is performed by a suitably trained person. The painless process is actually rather simple and it is now possible to have the treatment at home using relatively cheap equipment (around $200). Though the results of home treatment are impressive the best benefits are gained if it is performed in a cosmetic clinic, beauty salon or spa.

Sometimes, immediately following a session, face can sometimes seem slightly reddened though this quickly subsides to leave a fantastically healthy glow. You will also notice that open pores will be noticeably reduced and, rather than looking dull and lifeless, your skin will look radiant with a pleasant sheen. Overall the look will be far more youthful than prior to the treatment and this will improve more with further treatments.

For many the most important benefit from microdermabrasion is the removal of comedones. These are the plugs in pores which are visible in blackheads and unseen in whiteheads. As these are part of the cause of acne by using microdermabrasion to condition the skin (which is free from active acne) so the new acne does not form, it is possible to bring outbreaks quickly under control and minimize the risk of new outbreaks.

Acne can be devastating and the effects can only be fully understood by those who have suffered from the disease. Not only is it considered unsightly but it is also really painful and certainly uncomfortable at the best of times. It is little wonder that so many suffers also suffer from depression and for this reason the benefits, and importance, of microdermabrasion can not be understated for such people.

There are plenty of acne treatments available but the regime has to be specific to the person as not all work for all people and it is very much a case of trial and error. Fortunately microdermabrasion appears to work to great effect on virtually anybody who suffers from acne and, because of this, it is extremely popular as both a cure and a preventative treatment.

The benefits of microdermabrasion are plentiful. Although I have focused on acne 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?
