As well as clearing away the dead skin cells, microdermabrasion also has other advantages.
Depending on your reason for having a microdermabrasion, you will notice results after your first treatment. This is particularly the case when being used to brighten the skin or remove blackheads. Other conditions, however, may require more sessions before you are able to notice its effects. Often between 3 and 6 treatments are suggested for the best results.
How Often Will I Need To Have Microdermabrasion?
In salons, microdermabrasion is often performed as a series of between 3 and 6 sessions, often spaced out by a week or two. After the initial sessions, you may find you need a monthly maintenance treatment to top up and continue the good condition of your skin.
A great benefit of microdermabrasion is how quick it is. Depending on the area, a single session may be as quick as thirty minutes long.
The process can improve blood and lymphatic circulation deep within the skin, which can improve the internal health of the skin. The enhanced blood flow means more oxygen and nutrients are supplied to the cells. This improves cell processes and therefore enhances the skin, improving elasticity.
Enhances Product Efficacy
By removing the dead skin and promoting circulation, microdermabrasion has been shown to enhance the absorption of skincare products by the skin by up to 50%. This means that if you are treating your skin for acne, the skin will be more receptive to the product, so it can have better results than it normally would.
Many people now choose microdermabrasion over other treatments options like laser procedures and chemical peels because it is safer and still achieves great results. It is one of the safest cosmetic procedures you can have done and does not require medications or a long recovery time. You can even have it in your lunch break!
Range Of Uses
Microdermabrasion has been used for multiple skin conditions. These include ageing, acne, acne scarring, age spots, dull skin, fine lines and wrinkles.
Does Microdermabrasion Hurt?
No, microdermabrasion should not hurt. It may feel a little uncomfortable during the treatment, and your skin will likely feel tight for a few hours after, but it should not be painful. It is one of the softest, non-invasive skin treatments available today and can achieve great results.
