Best Doctors for Microdermabrasion Tips for choosing a good microdermabrasion doctor and what to ask your doctor.
A: Beauty Salon microderm abrasions device is safe for all ages and 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: 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 derm 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: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Micro dermabration kit stimulates collagen production, essential to healthy skin and also evens out skin texture and tone.
A: Compared to other non-surgical procedures, doctor-performed microdermabarasion is the cheapest skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, micro dermabration 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 microderm 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 microbrasion treatment cost around $1,600 per year.
A: Professional micro derma abrasion works because, by abrading the only a few microns of the outer layer of skin cells, it stimulates cell renewal and eliminates superficial skin imperfections (like scars, wrinkles, blemishes and age spots) without injuring the skin.
A: Microdermal abrasion set is effective on uneven pigmentation The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck. Several dermatologist-performed micro dermabration sessions are required to even out skin tone and get rid of irregular pigmentation.
A: According to thousands of online testimonials, office microabrasion does work on fine skin imperfections. But like with most non-surgical techniques, the effects depend on your medical condition, your body's ability to recover and on who does the procedure. Most people who have tried typical microderm abrasion effects include improving acne scars, age spots, fine lines, enlarged pores, red marks, stretch marks and dull skin More serious skin imperfections cannot be treated with this non-invasive technique, because it only removes the top layer of the skin, not being able to reach deeper layers of skin.
A: Rosacea is one of the main contraindications of microdermabrasion, because the exfoliation process worsens rosacea symptoms (redness, itchiness, flaking). self microabrasion sets are not recommended either (even though they are milder).
A: Professional micrdermabrasion tool is appropriate for all skin colors (including Asian 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 dermatologist-performed micro dermal abrasion helps the skin renew itself quicker and more effectively.
A: Yes, board certified estheticians can perform microdermibrasion if they have been specifically trained for it and can prove it with a diploma or certification.
