A: Microdem abrasion kit is effective on fine lines. It evens out skin texture through abrasion of the top layer of skin. The effect is a reduction or even total removal of fine lines.
A: Microdermabarasion system stimulates collagen growth which is why it's effective on enlarged pores. Collagen production is stimulated through skin exfoliation. Furthermore, the vacuum function of most microderm abrasions machines 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: Microderm abrasions are 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 over the counter sets and dermatologist-performed treatment.
A: Over The Counter micro derma brasion set is appropriate for all skin colors (including black 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 doctor-performed microderm abrasion helps the skin renew itself quicker and more effectively.
A: You can do micodermabrasion on your own as long as you use a special at-home kit. Specialist microdermal abrasion can only be performed by trained professionals. Because it can cause damage to the skin if not used properly, microdermabrasion equipment should only be operated by people with specific theoretical and practical training.
A: Liver spots can be reduced or even removed entirely through several micro derm abrasion sessions - the flow of crystals exfoliates the top layer of the skin and evens out skin tone.
A: Personal microdermabasion kits can be used on your back as long as it's especially formulated as a body microderm abrasion kit. Using a face micro dermal abrasion tool on your back will not have the desired effect because it's much too mild to have a significant effect on your back. Spa microdermal abrasion is suitable for use on the back.
A: By removing the top layer of the skin, personal microdermal abrasion diminishes or even removes superficial acne marks. Deeper acne marks require a more invasive procedure, like a deep chemical peel or laser skin 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 dermal 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.
A: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Microdermabrasia tool stimulates collagen production, essential to a beautiful skin complexion and also evens out skin texture and tone.
