A: Microdermabarasion 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.
A: Do-It-Yourself microdermabration kit is appropriate for all skin types (including those with dry 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 beauty salon microdermbrasion helps the skin renew itself quicker and more effectively.
A: Benzoyl peroxide users should not have microdermabrastion Used at the same time as BP (benzoyl peroxide) microdermabasion can make the skin overly sensitive and can severely irritate the skin. This applies to over the counter product and specialist treatment.
A: Rosacea is one of the main contraindications of microdermabrasion, because the exfoliation process worsens rosacea symptoms (redness, itchiness, flaking). OTC microdermabrasion systems are not recommended either (even though they are milder).
A: By resurfacing the top layer of the skin, do-it-yourself microbrasion 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. Over The Counter microbrasion is also not as effective as beauty salon microdermabration.
A: Doctors and patients alike agree that microderm abrasian has very few side effects, like temporary discoloration of the treated area, sun sensitivity, flaking and redness. These are not abnormal reactions, but you should discuss them with your doctor if they occur.
A: Microderm abrasion set works on hyperpigmentation. The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck. Several spa microdermabrasion sessions are required to even out skin tone and get rid of hyperpigmentation.
A: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Microbrasion tool stimulates collagen production, essential to a beautiful face complexion and also evens out skin texture and tone.
A: The Self microdermbrasion set from Youthful Essence is effective for some people and isn't for others. There are many happy customers who say that Youthful Essence set does make their skin look younger and feel smother. On the other hand, there are some unhappy costumers who say the kit is either too harsh, causing them irritations or break outs, or not very effective in diminishing fine scars and wrinkles. The only way to find out if the set works for you is to try to get a free sample and test the formula on your skin.
A: By removing the top layer of the skin, OTC microdemabrasion diminishes or even removes superficial acne scarring. Deeper acne scarring require a more invasive procedure, like a deep chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing.
