Skin Rejuvenation Treatments Compared Microdermabrasion vs other skin rejuvenation procedures in terms of cost, effectiveness, risks and side effects.
A: By removing the top layer of the skin, personal microabrasion 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: Derma microabrasion 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: Surgery has more dramatic results and is also effective on more severe skin imperfections. Superficial lines, scars, stretch marks and acne marks are best treated with derma microabrasion.
A: Personal Microdem abrasion tools should not be used on your eye-lids even if it's especially formulated as a face microdermabasion cream. Using a facial micro derm abrasion tool on your eye lids may result in irritation or scarring (the lids are too thin and can easily be damaged). Beauty Salon micro derm abrasion is not suitable for use on eye lids either.
A: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Microderma abrasion machine stimulates collagen production, essential to a beautiful skin complexion and also evens out skin texture and tone.
A: The main ingredient of a micro dermal abrasion kit is the aluminum oxide micro crystal. Being in a high pressure flow coming from a professional hand held device or in a special at home cream, these micro crystals are the abrading agent specific to microdermabrasion. Other microdermabrasion kit ingredients are water, natural oil and healing agents.
A: Micro abrasion machine stimulates collagen growth which is why it's effective on enlarged pores. Collagen production is stimulated through skin exfoliation. Furthermore, the vacuum function of most microdermbrasion equipment sucks out hardened oil, dust and other dirt which may clog your pores. This way, the oil in the glands can again reach the surface of your skin and your pores can return to their natural shape and size.
A: By resurfacing the top layer of the skin, spa microdermal abrasion is effective. After a full treatment of 6-12 sessions, most people notice significant improvement in skin tone and texture. The face looks younger, feels smoother, and has fewer superficial scars, fine wrinkles, enlarged or clogged pores. More severe skin imperfections require more invasive procedures like laser or chemical peeling. Personal microdermal abrasions is also not as effective as spa microdermabrasion.
A: Microdermabrasions is not recommended for patients taking Accutane. This acne treatment works by reducing the amount of oil produced by the skin's sebaceous glands which reduces the skin's ability to recover after body or facial exfoliation. Having micro dermal abrasion while on Accutane may cause permanent scarring. This applies to OTC set and spa treatment.
A: Microderm abrasion works by sandblasting the outermost skin layer but cannot abrade deeper skin layers where tattooed skin cells are which is why it cannot be used for tattoo removal. Removing tattoos requires laser or surgical procedures which are invasive enough to reach pigmented skin cells.
