When your skin is looking less than its best, it is sometimes because of the buildup of dead skin cells on the top layer of your skin. The outermost layer of your skin is actually comprised of dead material that can block fresher skin underneath. By removing this layer with a microdermabrasion treatment, we can brighten your complexion for a more youthful look.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a form of exfoliation of the outer layer of skin. We use a device to break up the molecular bonds that make up what is known as the stratum corneum, or outer skin layer composed of dead skin cells, oils, and cellular debris. This layer can act as a barrier against pathogens or pollution, but an abnormal buildup of this material can block the radiance of your skin and have a dulling effect. Regularly undergoing a microdermabrasion procedure as part of your beauty routine can ensure that the natural radiance of your skin always shines forth.
What Are the Benefits of the Procedure?
Microdermabrasion has been proven to be effective in restoring skin radiance and minimizing problems like fine lines and wrinkles, superficial sun damage, and light acne scars.
This procedure uses a device to spray microscopic, abrasive particles onto your skin to break the molecular bonds holding the stratum corneum together. We then use this or another device to scoop up these particles and the cellular debris.
Our professionals are able to ensure that your skin is exfoliated efficiently without damaging the healthy tissue or causing scars or other blemishes. At your consultation we will make sure you have suitable skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
The vast majority of patients would make good candidates for a microdermabrasion treatment. You may want to consider it if you would like to brighten the complexion of your skin and enjoy a healthy glow. Appropriate candidates also would like treatment for light acne scars, minor sun damage, or fine wrinkles. You may also benefit from the treatment if you have clogged pores or simply want to maintain healthy, clear skin.
In addition to its anti-aging benefits, microdermabrasion helps to boost the absorption of topical skin care products like creams, lotions, gels, ointments, and serums. Removing the outer skin layer helps product absorption because it can act as a barrier to topical products.
