Reveal Younger Skin With Microdermabrasion
Men and women across the globe are seeking ways to improve their appearance and confidence. Whether through exercise and diet or extreme fashion style, people are always looking for ways to feel and look their very best. Often people suffer from low self-esteem because of their complexion. Acne scars, hyperpigmentation, large pores, deep creases, lines and wrinkles are just a few things people list as factors that inhibit their happiness and self-esteem. While people who do not suffer from these things may think they are shallow concerns, a person’s appearance can have a very big effect on their feelings of value and worth. Addressing these issues has been cost prohibitive and experimental in the past leaving people with little choice in effective treatment options for many common skin and complexion issues. All of that is in the past now that we have the technology of microdermabrasion skin treatments.
The skin, or epidermis is made up of cells and is the body’s largest organ. Of the entire body, the thinnest skin is found around the eyes. There are different skin types: dry, oily, normal, and combination, and each requires different care, in order for it to look and feel its best. There are many factors that affect it, such as environmental pollutants, the sun, diet, beauty products, and more. Acne is a common problem on the face, which can be treated to some effect, and it can occur at any stage in life, from puberty, right into adulthood. With the proper skin care and lifestyle adjustments, your skin can look its best.
Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing technique that works to correct skin imperfections by forcing rapid speed exfoliation. Working at a deep cellular level to resurface and smooth facial skin, it offers rapid results with minimal down time. It is a safe, but serious procedure so be sure to have a thorough consultation with a professionally trained expert before you schedule a procedure. Ask any and all questions you may have and ask about the credentials, experience and training of the doctor, nurse or technician that will perform your service. As an elective cosmetic procedure, it is unlikely it will be covered by insurance, but for people with severe cystic acne or other major skin problems, disease or disorders, insurance may cover part of your treatment costs, so be sure to speak with the billing department in the medical office if you think you may have coverage. A cheaper alternative to handle hyperpigmentation is a cream like SkinBright. Meladerm is another option.
Microdermabrasion works by resurfacing the skin with the power of tine crystals and air. Crushed crystals are hosed on the skin, much in the same way power washers and sand blasters are used to clean houses and driveways, and then are immediately vacuumed up by a separate tube along with dead skin cells and other accumulated debris. It works to resurface the skin through chemical and physical exfoliation, exposing new, radiant skin and forcing skin cells to turn over and renew themselves at a faster rate than before treatment. The procedure can help reduce acne scars, dark spots, deep lines and wrinkles, and reveal a younger, tighter complexion after your treatment.
After receiving a treatment, it is important to protect your delicate skin. Follow your technician’s instructions for post care cleansing and maintenance routines using the products they recommend to get the best results possible. Be sure to wear sunscreen as the procedure increases sun sensitivity and wearing sunscreen on a regular basis will prevent sun damage from reversing the results your resurfacing and anti-aging treatment just delivered. If you are looking for a quick, affordable outpatient cosmetic procedure to help freshen your look, increase your confidence and self-esteem microdermabrasion may be the right choice for you. Consult with a professional in your area to find out more and see if it is the right service for you.
