Microdermabrasion is an effective, non-surgical way to get rid of acne scars, fine wrinkles and sunspots by exfoliating the top layers of the skin. No chemicals or laser beams are used, only aluminum oxide micro crystals that gently sandblast your skin, leaving it smooth and fresh. Micro dermabrasion also stimulates collagen production, helping your skin rejuvenate faster than normal. Also called the lunchtime peel, microderm abrasion takes no more then one hour and requires no downtime.
In 1985, an Italian specialist performed microdermabrasion, as we understand it today, for the first time. Hundreds of people all over the world now treat skin problems with microderm abrasion because it has proved effective but, more importantly, because of its quick post-treatment recovery and low health risk.
Best microdermabrasion candidates are acne prone individuals or those with blotchy skin, fine acne scars, rhytides, enlarged pores, milia or sebaceous hyperplasia. Sun damaged skin or uneven skin tone and texture may also improve as a result of microdermabrasion treatment.
Your doctor can give you a rough idea of the number of microdermabrasions required for best results. Major changes are obvious after the fifth session, even though most patients say they observed improvements after the first two. Most doctors suggest 6 to 10 treatments, scheduled around two weeks apart, so the skin has time to recover between micro dermabrasions. After the recommended number of sessions, you may have to schedule another microdermabrasion once every two or three months, to maintain the effects.
The most important component in many microderm abrasion home systems and machines is a special battery-operated wand which propels micro-crystal cream onto the skin's surface and delicately polishes the uppermost layers of the epidermis.
But the wand also has another effect. Thanks to its therapeutic massage, it stimulates blood flow and increases speed of skin cell rejuvenation. The wand has a special soft sponge head, designed to host the micro dermabrasion crystal cream and massage your skin.
