Introduction to Microdermabrasion

Ok. Now I have explained and everything I could on chemical peels, I thought it best to move on to give an introduction on the next effective wrinkle removal option, microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion is a skin care procedure that helps in reduce aging signs by gently abrading the skin surface so that the outer skin layer is removed. Besides helping with the removal of lines and wrinkles on your skin, microdermabrasion helps in reducing your skin pore size, minimizing any superficial pigmentation problems you have and also help with photo aging.

How it works

Now you may wonder how microdermabrasion works. Well, it is actually micro crystals that are used to exfoliate and remove your epidermis. A wand or hand piece is used by the technician to move these crystals across your skin surface.

Basically, it is because microdermabrasion does not need any downtime, pain medication or anesthesia that it is a very popular wrinkle removal option. There are no risks or elaborate commitments to make. In fact, so convenient is the procedure that it is possible for you to undergo microdermabrasion during your lunch break!!

Besides all the benefits mentioned above, I forgot to mention that microdermabrasion helps in improving the skin's ability in absorbing skin care products like wrinkle treatments.

Undergo microdermabrasion harboring realistic expectations

I have to tell you that microdermabrasion is not that effective a technique to use for removing deep wrinkles and scars. It is best only for removing and reducing fine lines and early signs of wrinkles.

So if you are considering getting a microdermabrasion done, it is better to do it while harboring realistic expectations. Don't think it will be effective for removing deep pigment problems and severe skin conditions you may be suffering from. A better option for all this is chemical peels and laser resurfacing.

It is not advisable for some people to undergo a microdermabrasion. Those who have used Accutane in the past year, those with active herpes lesions, those having malignant skin tumors and those with keratoses should not undergo a microdermabrasion. Even pregnant and nursing women should avoid the procedure as its consequences are affected by the hormonal changes in these women's lives.
