A: By removing the top layer of the skin, spa microdermabrasian diminishes or even removes superficial acne scars. Deeper acne scars require a more invasive procedure, like deep chemical peeling or laser resurfacing.
A: Stretch marks appear on your skin as uneven skin tone and texture. By exfoliating the outermost layer of the skin, micro dermal abrasion product evens out skin tone and texture, thus reducing or totally removing stretchmarks.
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 derma abrasion The best thing to do is ask the doctor who performed the procedure whether you can use foundation or not immediately after the treatment. All doctors agree, though, that some mascara and lip gloss are completely harmless.
A: The Home micro dermabration products from Neutrogena works for some people and doesn't work for others. There are many happy customers who say that Nuetrogena product 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: Compared to other non-surgical procedures, salon microderm abrasian is the least expensive skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, microabrasion 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 microderma 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 microderm abrasion treatment cost around $1,600 per year.
A: Salon micro derma brasion is performed by a doctor, trained nurse, dermatologist or aesthetician who uses a hand-held, sandblaster-like device to spray and circulate a high pressure flow of aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin. The crystals gently exfoliate the very top layer of the skin. This hand-held tool also contains a vacuum system that sucks away the debris, dead skin cells and used micro crystals.
A: Microderm abrasion tools stimulate collagen growth which is why it works on large pores. Collagen production is stimulated through skin exfoliation. Furthermore, the vacuum function of most micro derma brasion 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: One major benefit is the minimum risks and side effects associated with microdermabarasion Unlike dermabrasion or laser skin resurfacing, microdermabasion 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 home micro dermabrasion set (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: According to thousands of online testimonials, professional microbrasion works on superficial skin imperfections. But like with most non-surgical procedures, the results depend on your medical condition, your body's ability to recover and on who performs the procedure on you. Most patients who have tried typical microderma results include getting rid of stretch marks, acne scars, age spots, fine lines, enlarged pores, red marks, and dull skin More severe skin imperfections cannot be improved with this non-invasive technique, because it only sandblasts the top layer of the skin, not being able to reach deeper layers of skin.
A: Derma microabrasion is not recommended if you've had chemical peeling (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 personal product and salon treatment.
