Certified Microdermabrasion Doctors What to expect from an approved professional when going for in-office microdermabrasion treatment.
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 one of the over the counter micro derma abrasion kit.
A: Healthy-looking skin needs elasticity and density, both achievable through skin cell renewal. Microdermabration machine abrades the outermost skin layer and stimulates skin renewal. An effective skin renewal process results in increased elasticity and density. Moreover, the vacuum function of the macrodermabrasion machine sucks up dirt and hardened oil to reveal an even skin texture and tone.
A: Yes, skin redness is one of the side effects of professional microderm abrasian The redness will disappear in a few hours after the procedure.
A: Age spots can be made less visible or even removed entirely through several microdermabration treatments - the flow of crystals exfoliates the top layer of the skin and evens out irregular skin pigmentation.
A: Microderma abrasion works by sandblasting the outermost skin layer but cannot abrade deeper skin layers where tattooed skin cells are which is why it cannot remove tattoos. Tatoo removal needs laser or surgical procedures which are invasive enough to reach pigmented skin cells.
A: By removing the top layer of skin, microdermabrasian evens out skin texture and helps remove superficial face scars. Deeper face scarring needs more invasive non-surgical techniques, like deep chemical peeling or laser skin resurface.
A: Microdermation 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 microdermal abrasions while on Accutane may cause permanent scarring. This applies to do-it-yourself sets and professional treatment.
A: By removing the top layer of the skin, OTC microdermabasion diminishes or even removes superficial acne scarring. Deeper acne scarring microdermabrasions require a more invasive procedure, like a deep chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing.
A: Stretch marks appear on your skin as uneven skin tone and texture. By exfoliating the outermost layer of the skin, derma microabrasion kit evens out skin tone and texture, thus reducing or totally removing stretchmarks.
A: Chemical peeling involve applying a mild acid solution to the skin that exfoliates the upper layers of the skin, while micoderm 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.
