How Microdermabrasion Works To Improve Your Skin

Nowadays, you don’t need invasive cosmetic procedures to improve the appearance of your skin. With advancing cosmetic technology, there are numerous non-invasive procedures available to attain a bright, youthful complexion. Microdermabrasion is one such procedure, and it can be used to reduce the appearance of many different skin imperfections. 

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

The microdermabrasion procedure involves a small, hand-held device with tiny crystals on its surface. Your provider will gently apply this device to the skin and move it across the skin, providing powerful exfoliation. In this process, the outermost layer of the skin is removed, taking away dull, dead skin cells and impurities.

Another method of microdermabrasion involves spraying the skin with fine, pressurized particles of sodium bicarbonate or aluminum oxide, providing the same exfoliating benefits. Both microdermabrasion methods are appropriate for all skin tones and are non-invasive alternatives to dermabrasion, a more invasive skin treatment. Unlike dermabrasion, microdermabrasion is gentle on the skin and typically requires no recovery time. 

Stimulate Cell Turnover and Collagen Production

By removing the skin’s top layer, microdermabrasion makes it possible for new, healthy skin cells to reach the surface. These new skin cells will replace the old skin cells, repairing damaged skin tissue for a more even complexion. Additionally, microdermabrasion stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, boosting the production of collagen for firmer, healthier-looking skin. 

What Can Microdermabrasion Be Used For?

Microdermabrasion can be used for a broad variety of cosmetic concerns affecting the skin’s tone and texture. Common skin complaints that may be improved with microdermabrasion include:

  • Fine lines
  • Enlarged pores
  • Scarring, including acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation 
  • Age spots
  • Dull skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough skin texture
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma
