Certified Microdermabrasion Doctors What to expect from an approved professional when going for in-office microdermabrasion treatment.
A: Laser skin resurfacing is more invasive and also more effective on deeper skin imperfections. Micro skin abrasion gives better results on superficial scars, lines and stretch marks.
A: OTC microderma abrasion products can be used on your body as long as it's especially formulated as a body microabrasions set. Using a face micro derma brasion set on your body will not have the desired effect because it's much too mild to have a significant effect on your body. Professional microderm is suitable for use on the body except for the feet where the skin is too thin.
A: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Microdermabra set stimulates collagen production, essential to a beautiful face complexion and also evens out skin texture and tone.
A: Lupus patients should not have microderm abrasions This procedures is somewhat invasive to the skin (any skin rejuvenation treatment is to some extent) and can worsen their condition. This applies to OTC micro derma abrasion as well, despite its mild effect.
A: Freckles are a form of hyper pigmentation. They can be removed through several sessions of microdermation cream. The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck.
A: By exfoliating the top layer of the skin, microderma machine cleans deep into the pore and removes excess oil and dirt that clog pores - which causes whiteheads. Most whiteheads are removed while the more stubborn ones become less noticeable.
A: One major benefit is the minimum risks and side effects associated with microdermabasion Unlike dermabrasion or laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasions takes no more than 30-60 minutes and can be successfully used on the face as well as the body (neck, chest, back and hands). If time or money is an issue, the procedure is also available as a cheap self micro dermal abrasion kit (well known brands include Neutrogena, Mary Kay, L'Oreal, Oil of Olay, Homedics, etc). It removes only the very top skin layer which is why it's considered to be the least invasive cosmetic procedure. It doesn't require anesthesia and has virtually no down time after treatment. It can be performed on all skin types and colors without risks and side effects.
A: Micro derm abrasion is not recommended if you've had a chemical peel (glycolic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, TCA, Jessner or any other kind of peel) in the last 14 days because the two exfoliating procedures combined are too aggressive and might affect your skin's ability to recover. This applies to self cream and spa treatment.
A: By removing the top layer of skin, micoderm abrasion pulverizes away the dead skin layer (the outermost layer) in order to even out skin texture and fade superficial face scars. More severe face scarring requires more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peels or laser facial resurface.
A: Spa derma microabrasion machine is appropriate for all skin types (including those with sensitive skin ) because this procedure sandblasts only the outermost skin layer which is made of dead skin cells. There's no damage to live tissue which could cause scarring or severe irritation. The exfoliation process involved in office microabrasions helps the skin renew itself quicker and more effectively.
