A: By removing the top layer of the skin, self microdermabarasion diminishes or even removes superficial red marks. Deeper red marks require a more invasive procedure, like a deep chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing.
A: Micodermabrasion is safe for young people of all skin types but most doctors recommend it for patients aged 14 and older, mainly because they want to make sure that all major hormonal changes are over and the results of the procedure are as good as they can be.
A: Laser resurfacing is more invasive and also more effective on deeper skin imperfections. Macrodermabrasion gives better results on superficial scars, lines and stretch marks.
A: Home microbrasion creams should not be used on your eye-lids even if it's especially formulated as a face microdermabarasion product. Using a face micro abrasion cream on your eye lids may result in irritation or scarring (the lids are too thin and can easily be damaged). Office microdermabrasion is not suitable for use on eye lids either.
A: No, if performed right, micro derm abrasion does not age your skin.
A: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Microderm abrasian product stimulates collagen production, essential to healthy skin and also evens out skin texture and tone.
A: After cleaning your face of make up and excess oil, the doctor uses a hand-held, sandblaster-like device to spray and circulate high pressure flow of aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin. The crystals gently exfoliate the very top layer of the skin, while the wand vacuums used crystals and exfoliated skin cells at the same time.
A: Yes, results are visible after the first microdermabrasia. especially if we are talking about doctor-performed microdermabasion which is more effective than at-home sets. Best results are obtained after 6 to 12 sessions (depending on your expectations and severity of skin imperfections), respectively one month of use for one of the home microabrasions product.
A: Micro abrasion is not recommended for Differin users. Differin works the same as Tretinoin (which prevents debris, excess oil and skin cells from clogging the pores) and increases the risk of scarring when used when having microdermabrasions This applies to over the counter sets and dermatologist-performed treatment.
A: Spa macrodermabrasion machine is safe and effective for many patients with acne-prone skin, but if your skin breaks out a lot or you suffer from moderate to severe acne then this procedure is not the solution for you (the exfoliating process may cause irritation and further breakouts). Some people with acne-prone skin have found that some or all personal micro dermal abrasion kits makes them breakout. This could be caused by certain ingredients found in the micro-crystal cream and is not necessarily linked to the way microdermabrasion works. If home kits make you breakout, consider professional microdermabrasion.
