A: Microderm abrasian is safe for young women (and men) of all skin types but most doctors recommend it for girls 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: The Do-It-Yourself microdermabrastion sets from Neutrogena works for some people and doesn't work for others. There are many satisfied consumers who say that Neutrogena 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: Over The Counter microderm abrasian tools can be used on your back as long as it's especially formulated as a body microdermabration cream. Using a facial microdemabrasion product on your back will not have the desired results because it's much too mild to have a significant effect on your back. Surgeon-performed microderm abrasions are suitable for use on the back.
A: Chemical peeling involve applying a mild acid solution to the skin that exfoliates the upper layers of the skin, while microderm abrasion is a mechanical peel that uses a stream of crystals (or a diamond tip wand) and suction to gently exfoliate the skin. Deeper chemical peels can be more effective than microdermabrasion treatment. because they exfoliate a thicker layer of skin, thus being able to remove deeper skin imperfections. On the other hand, a deep chemical peel requires 14 days downtime and involves serious side effects like flaking, redness and swelling.
A: Eczema sufferers should not use cosmetic microderm abrasion This procedures is somewhat invasive to the skin (any skin rejuvenation treatment is to some extent) and can worsen their condition. This applies to home microdermabrasian as well, despite its mild effect.
A: Yes, thanks to its non-invasive nature microdermabration is recommended over other procedures like chemical peels and laser for superficial skin imperfections.
A: Micodermabrasion tool is effective on uneven pigmentation The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck. Several professional microderm abrasion sessions are required to even out skin tone and get rid of irregular pigmentation.
A: Microderm abrasian systems stimulate collagen growth which is why it's effective on enlarged pores. Collagen production is stimulated through skin exfoliation. Furthermore, the vacuum function of most micro dermal abrasion devices 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: By resurfacing the top layer of the skin, do-it-yourself microderm does help the skin. 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. Do-It-Yourself microdermabrasion is also not as effective as professional micro dermabration.
A: Microbrasion is not recommended if you've had a chemical peel (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 OTC set and spa treatment.
