Microdermabrasion Treatment Offers Dramatic Results
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that improves skin condition. It is effective at reducing fine lines, fine wrinkles, small scars such as acne scars (although it is not effective on deep wrinkles or deep scars), and age spots. Microdermabrasion works by emitting tiny (micro) crystals that polish (abrasion) the skin (derma). This stimulates the production of collagen and other skin cells that make the skin look healthier. The treatment sessions last for about an hour but several must be done every few weeks. Microdermabrasion does not have a permanent effect, but it has other benefits that recommend it above other skin rejuvenation techniques.
First, it has virtually no side effects. Immediately after the procedure is done, the patient is able to go about his or her life without restricting time spent in the sunlight. Second, it is a non-surgical procedure so it can be done quickly (which has given rise to calling microdermabrasion a "lunch peel") and without anesthetic. Furthermore it works on all types and colors of skin. Unlike other skin treatments, there will not be negative effects on skin pigmentation because of microdermabrasion. People with skin types that are not suitable of these other procedures can safely undergo microdermabrasion without worrying about the negative side effects.
