A: Office micro derma abrasion machine 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: Personal microderm tools can be used on your body as long as it's especially formulated as a body microderm abrasions cream. Using a facial micro abrasion tool on your body will not have the desired effect because it's much too mild to have a significant effect on your body. Specialist micro dermal abrasion is suitable for use on the body except for the feet where the skin is too thin.
A: Compared to other non-invasive procedures, office micro abrasion is the cheapest skin rejuvenation procedure. For example, micro derma abrasion 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 microabrasion 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 micro dermabration treatment cost around $1,600 per year.
A: Microdermibrasion pulverizes away the dead skin layer (the outermost layer) in order to even out skin texture and diminish superficial pimple scars. More severe pimple scarring requires more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peels or laser skin rejuvenation.
A: Professional microdermbrasion can only be performed by trained professionals. Because it can damage the top layer of the skin if not used properly, microdermabrasions tools should only be operated by people with specific theoretical and practical training. A surgeon, dermatologist, esthetician or nurse can perform this procedure professionally after they have been specifically trained by an authorized institution (a medical facility, a cosmetic academy or a specialized company). You can use personal microdermabrasion sets by yourself if you carefully follow the instructions.
A: The Do-It-Yourself cosmetic microderm abrasion kits from Youthful Essence works for some people and doesn't work for others. There are many satisfied consumers who say that Youthful Essence kit does make their face feel smother and look young. On the other hand, there are some unhappy people who say the kit is either too harsh, causing them skin irritation and breakouts, or not very effective in reducing superficial scars and fine wrinkles. The only way to find out if the kit is effective for you is to try to obtain a free sample and test the formula on your skin.
A: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Microdermabarasion tool stimulates collagen production, essential to healthy skin and also removes blotchy skin texture and tone.
A: Some doctors say that office microderm abrasian can work on mild acne without any risk of irritation or break-outs. There are a few studies published online that show that microdermabration can be an effective treatment for mild acne. Other specialists recommend against using microabrasion as acne treatment, especially on moderate or severe acne. Acne makes the skin more sensitive and prone to breakouts and exfoliation can cause severe scarring and additional inflammation.
A: derma microabrasion diminishes age spots, uneven skin texture, clogged pores or enlarged, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, acne scars, fine wrinkles and dull skin by removing the top layer of the skin with a high-pressure jet of micro crystals or using a diamond-tipped wand.
A: According to thousands of online testimonials, self micro dermal abrasion does work 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 microdermal abrasion say the treatment worked well in removing fine lines, age spots, enlarged pores, acne scars, 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.
