Bring Back That Glowing Blemish-free Skin With Microdermabrasion
Published on October 11th, 2014 | by Joan Makai
Skin has to be blemish-free and glowing if one wants it to be healthy and look young. There are many procedures that can lessen if not eliminate the blemishes but one of the most heard of is microdermabrasion. In general, microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that can help remove skin problems with ease. Lunch peel is how this process is called because the individual needs all of a lunch time and nothing more for this procedure. Sand blasting is the technique used to remove the top layers of the skin in a smooth manner. Tiny crystals are used in this method, which exfoliates and resurfaces the skin. The result, of course, is a clear and smooth skin.
The average cost of microdermabrasion is $123 but depending on your location it could go much more than that. If you’re in the process of contemplating whether or not you will undergo a microdermabrasion procedure, below is a short rundown of this process that could help you decide.
Pros of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion for acne scars is very popular. Acne is a highly serious issue and adding insult to injury is the scars. Microdermabrasion lets one achieve a skin that is smooth and clear. This procedure can also yield benefit for whiteheads, blackheads, wrinkles, and stretch marks. This process also helps in the formation of new skin cells. There are no restrictions with the procedure and people with any skin type and skin tone can opt to undergo dermabrasion. The process is pretty easy and can be repeated once a week. Anti-aging is another reason why people go for this procedure.
Usually, the procedure starts with a consultation. You need to tell the dermatologist about your skin problem and that you want to try dermabrasion procedure. The doctor would inform you about the dos and don’ts for this procedure like avoiding the use of aspirin. Antiviral medicines are prescribed too. Smoking has to be avoided. During the procedure, goggles should be placed on the eyes. The pressure will vary based on the needs. The treatment lasts for 30 minutes in the maximum but for many it is only for 15 minutes. Four to eight treatment cycles are, often, specified. There is no pain involved for many, and only a few experience mild pains. The treatment has to be done in the doctor’s clinic.
Women can even apply make-up when the treatment is over. Though the skin gets a pink shade, it fades within 24 hours. You can expect to see acne free, blemish free, younger and smoother skin after the treatment cycle is over but don’t expect immediate result after just one cycle.
It is important to keep in mind that the loose, baggy and severely wrinkled skin cannot be treated using this procedure. Facelift has to be done if you want to eradicate this problem and make your skin look younger.
