Best Doctors for Microdermabrasion Tips for choosing a good microdermabrasion doctor and what to ask your doctor.
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 microbrasion.
A: Compared to other non-surgical procedures, clinic microdermabrasian is the cheapest skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, microderma kits cost between $15 and $200, depending on contents and brand. Kits that include a rotating hand-held device designed to massage the crystal cream onto your face are the most expensive (and the most effective). The price of a single micro dermal abrasion treatment at a beauty salon or spa varies between $75 and $200. One full face session at a surgeon or dermatologist office costs somewhere between $100 and $300, not including initial consultation fees (which may cost an additional $150). You may need an average of 9 treatments and 4 maintenance sessions for best results which makes a full microdermbrasion treatment cost around $1,600 per year.
A: Microabrasions machine works on hyperpigmentation. The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck. Several spa microabrasion sessions are required to even out skin tone and get rid of hyperpigmentation.
A: Microdermation works by sandblasting the outermost skin layer but cannot abrade deeper skin layers where tattooed skin cells are which is why it cannot remove tattoos. Tatoo removal needs laser or surgical procedures which are invasive enough to reach pigmented skin cells.
A: You can perform micoderm abrasion on yourself as long as you use a special at-home kit. Professional microderm abrasions can only be performed by trained professionals. Because it can cause damage to the skin if not used properly, microderm abrasion machines should only be operated by people with specific theoretical and practical training.
A: By removing the top layer of the skin, home microdermabration diminishes or even removes superficial red marks. Deeper red marks require a more invasive procedure, like deep chemical peeling or laser resurfacing.
A: Some specialists recommend using mild make-up to cover the redness on your face while others say that any type of liquid or powder foundation or any other type of cover up is absolutely forbidden in the first 2-3 days after micro dermabration The best thing to do is ask the doctor who performed the procedure whether you can use foundation or not immediately after the treatment.
A: The Do-It-Yourself microdermabarasion system from Dr Brandt is effective for some people and isn't for others. There are many satisfied consumers who say that Dr Brandt system does make their skin look younger and feel smother. However, there are some unhappy consumers who say the kit is either too aggressive, causing them skin irritations and break-outs, or not very effective in removing fine scars and wrinkles. The only way to find out if the product works for you is to try to get a free sample and test the formula on your face.
A: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Microdermabarasion cream stimulates collagen production, essential to healthy skin and also removes blotchy skin texture and tone.
A: Eczema sufferers should not use microabrasion This procedures is somewhat invasive to the skin (any skin rejuvenation treatment is to some extent) and can worsen their condition. This applies to home microderm abrasions as well, despite its mild effect.
