A: Micro derma brasion machines remove the outermost layer of the skin by sandblasting it with a jet of micro crystals. During the procedure, part of the pigment is physically eliminated and, at the same time, collagen production is stimulated so that your skin regains its density and elasticity. After 6 to 12 microabrasions treatments, the skin cells damaged by the sun are entirely removed and new, healthy skin cells take their place.
A: Self microabrasions tool 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 dermatologist-performed microderma helps the skin renew itself quicker and more effectively.
A: Microdermabration evens out skin texture and helps reduce superficial chicken pox scars. Deeper chicken pox scarring needs more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peeling or laser face rejuvenation.
A: By resurfacing the top layer of the skin, self microdermabrasian 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. Home microdermabasion is also not as effective as dermatologist-performed microabrasions.
A: Micrdermabrasion tools 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 microdermal abrasions 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: Best results are obtained after 6 to 12 professional sessions (depending on your expectations and severity of the skin imperfections), respectively one month of use for a at-home microderma abrasion cream.
A: Microdemabrasion units can only be operated by people with specific theoretical and practical training. Since this procedure is still relatively new, regulations regarding microderm abrasion qualification vary from state to state. Generally speaking, for a person to perform professional in-office micro derm abrasion. one needs to conclude a supervised 14 to 30 hour training and pass a practical exam with the institution offering the course. This institution can be a large spa, a vocational school, a dermatology clinic, a beauty academy or a device manufacturer.
A: Both at home and clinic micro dermabration work on the same principle and have the same reported results: reduction of fine lines, superficial scars, age spots and acne scars. But home micro dermal abrasion procedures cannot offer the same effectiveness you get from clinic microdermabration treatments on more severe skin imperfections.
A: Micro dermabration 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: Micro skin abrasion pulverizes away the dead skin layer (the outermost layer) in order to even out skin texture and reduce superficial facial scarring. Deeper facial scars needs more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peels or laser skin rejuvenation.
