How To Have a Great Complexion

Aug 17, 2007
Microdermabrasion is a popular and successful technique for removing and repairing aging effects on the skin, as well as sun damage. It is also used to allow medications and cosmetic products to enter the skin. It is designed for use on the face area and is performed by qualified cosmetic surgeons. It often is combined with other procedures. Either alone or in combination, the results can be amazing and more people are choosing this treatment to give them back the skin of their youth.

There is a tool that is especially for microdermabrasion and it is similar to a fine, petite sand-blaster. It forces a spray of miniscule crystals over the skin and has suction for the dead skin cells. The outer layers of facial skin are abrasively yet precisely removed, leaving only fresh skin and encouraging rejuvenation. To see dramatic results, you would require several sessions.

Microdermabrasion treatments are not only effective for repairing and reducing small, fine lines and wrinkles, but is also used on age spots, brown blotches and acne scarring. When the dead skin cells are firmly blasted away, the production of collagen and new skin cells is stimulated. People who have crows feet have found these treatments very effective and it is popular because it is non invasive and is not surgery.

The tool sprays a fine crystal emission over the skins surface, which polishes the skin. Each session lasts for up to sixty minutes and some only half an hour. Depending on why you are having the treatment, you could require anywhere from five to twelve sessions, with one every two or three weeks. To maintain lasting effects, it would be recommended that you attend maintenance treatments at designated intervals.

Some surgeons choose to use Microdermabrasion with a mild chemical peel. This furthers the depth of the skin removal, thus encouraging more new skin growth. You are able to have the treatments done with little interruption to your normal schedule, however those who have a chemical peels could take a little longer to heal.

Microdermabrasion will give your skin a fresh, healthy and clear look and feel. It is great for all kinds of skin and all colors. If you have a problem with skin sensitive to chemicals, you won't have any problems with Microdermabrasion, as no chemicals are used. If you do have good skin tone already, you will see the best results after the treatments.
