A: Professional microdermation can only be performed by trained professionals. Because it can damage the top layer of the skin if not used properly, micro derma abrasion machines 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 home microdermabrasions systems by yourself if you carefully follow the instructions.
A: You can safely have microabrasion on skin with tattoos with no risk or side effects. This skin rejuvenation procedure is too mild to affect tattoos.
A: Do-It-Yourself micro dermabration kit 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 microbrasion helps the skin renew itself quicker and more effectively.
A: Microdermabrasia is not recommended for patients taking Accutane. This acne treatment works by reducing the amount of oil produced by the skin's sebaceous glands which reduces the skin's ability to recover after body or facial exfoliation. Having microderma while on Accutane may cause permanent scarring. This applies to personal creams and professional treatment.
A: By resurfacing the top layer of the skin, professional microdermabrastion does work. 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 microdermabration is also not as effective as office microdermibration.
A: By exfoliating the top layer of the skin, macrodermabrasion products clean deep into the pore and removes excess oil and dirt that clog pores - which causes whiteheads. Most whiteheads are removed while the more stubborn ones become less noticeable.
A: Uneven skin tone is the result of a skin disorder called hyperpigmentation. It can be evened out through several sessions of microdermabration. The micro-crystal flow abrades the top layer of the skin where unevenly pigmented skin cells are stuck.
A: This procedure exfoliates the top layer of skin which consists of dead skin cells. Micro derm abrasion cream stimulates collagen production, essential to healthy skin and also removes blotchy skin texture and tone.
A: First, clean your face immediately with a wet microdermabarasion cloth and hydrating toner to remove micro crystals residue and dead skin cells. Once the skin has dried completely, apply a rich moisturizer across the treated area. Continue to apply the moisturizer for 4-6 days to protect your face from excessive exfoliation. Don't leave the house without applying a generous amount of sunscreen. If you want to speed up the recovery process, you can use copper based lotions (to heal the skin), Vitamin A, C and E formulas (to increase skin elasticity) and thermal water absorbing cloths (to calm down any swellings or itchiness).
A: By removing the top layer of the skin, beauty salon microdermabrasian diminishes or even removes superficial acne marks. Deeper acne marks require a more invasive procedure, like a deep chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing.
