If you have tried dermabrasion and found it to be too harsh for your skin, microdermabrasion may be just what you need. It is gentler on the skin for some because it uses physical exfoliation instead of harsher methods to remove the topmost layer of skin. Microdermabrasion is a fabulous way to rid your skin of those areas of damage that have occurred over time due to damage from environmental pollutants, ultraviolet radiation and simple cellular aging. If you are wondering if microdermabrasion may be the right choice for you, discover some of the top reasons to choose this quick, easy and gentle treatment.
You Have Fine Lines and Wrinkles
When microdermabrasion removes the topmost layer of skin, it encourages the body’s own healing and regeneration processes to take over and create new, healthier skin. In fact, it can kickstart the production of increased levels of collagen and elastin in the underlying tissues, which will make the skin appear smoother and plumper.
You Have Issues with Pigmentation
As you age, your skin may develop spots of hyperpigmentation often called age spots. While microdermabrasion may not be able to get rid of these spots altogether, it can even out the skin tone, thus, fading the spots. It can also help get rid of sunspots and fade away unwanted freckles.
You Have Scarring
Microdermabrasion can be effective on acne scars and scars from chickenpox and other issues. While it should not be used on most active acne, it can smooth away scars, revealing healthy tissues beneath, and increase collagen beneath the scars to create a smoother appearance. You will probably need multiple treatments to experience these great results.
You Want Better Skin Texture
This treatment can create all-around better skin texture and tone. It can remove blackheads and whiteheads, minimize enlarged pores and brighten dull skin. It can be used on virtually any type of skin.
You Want Fast Results
