Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that removes the outermost layer of skin to generate the growth of newer, healthier skin. Through this procedure, patients can improve the effects of fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and other superficial skin problems that have blemished their face over the years.
The best candidates for microdermabrasion are in good overall health and want to improve the current condition of their skin. Individuals who currently have acne may want to wait until their condition becomes less apparent before undergoing treatment.
Microdermabrasion is performed on an outpatient basis and usually takes less than an hour to complete. The procedure is carried out by applying a stream of very fine crystals to the face while the old skin cells are suctioned away through a vacuum. After the new skin is able to generate growth, a healthy and more refreshing look is restored to the face.
Once the treatment is complete, the skin may experience some redness, but results will appear within a few hours and improve over the next few days. Microdermabrasion is a very sought after procedure for patients who want to rejuvenate their skin and correct mild imperfections on the face.
