Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive medical spa treatment that exfoliates the facial skin, leaving it smoother and brighter – with smaller pores, fewer wrinkles, and more even skin tone and color.
At Advanced Laser Spa our experienced aestheticians offer the latest Microdermabrasion technology, offering hundreds of women and men in the Warren area younger, smoother, more beautiful appearance. In this article we answer’s some of our clients’ frequently asked questions about dermabrasion.
Who can benefit from Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is an excellent aesthetic treatment for anyone who wants brighter more radiant skin, anyone wishing to reduce the appearance of pores, wrinkles or fine lines, and even people desiring to minimize acne scars.
And, because microdermabrasion stimulates the face’s production of collagen, it is also ideal for women and men who would like firmer, “plumper,” and tighter more elastic skin.
How does Microdermabrasion work?
Microdermabrasion is similar to “sandblasting” – high pressure spraying of the skin with microscopic aluminum oxide crystals. This gently removes the dead skin cells, dirt, debris, oils and the outer layer of skin.
To accurately and precisely target smaller areas of the face – such as those close to the eyes and mouth – a diamond tipped wand is also used to “abrade” and exfoliate the skin.
Finally, deep suctioning is applied to pull away the dead skin and impurities from the surface of the skin as well as from inside the pores.
Is at home Microdermabrasion just as good?
No. Unfortunately over-the-counter online and drug store microdermabrasion treatments are simply not as strong or as deep as the clinical-grade microdermabrasion, like the kind that is performed in the Warren area at Advanced Laser & Skin Care.
Because at-home “dermabrasion kits” are sold to lay people, they are a much weaker in strength than the microdermabrasion equipment used by medical professionals.
At medical spas like Advanced Laser & Skin Care we have very expensive, clinical strength, state-of-the-art microdermabrasion equipment. Professional microdermabrasion uses high powered “blasting” crystals, diamond tipped wands, and strong suction to resurface the skin.
This technology removes dead skin, draws out impurities deep in the pores, and encourages skin cells to regenerate in a way that patients cannot do at home.
Do I need more than one Microdermabrasion treatment?
Most patients experience dramatic improvement that is visible after just the first single microdermabrasion treatment. By removing thedead layers of skin, even one microdermabrasion treatment can offer a substantial reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, scars, pock marks and discolorations.
And, depending upon the condition and age of your skin, multiple microdermabrasion treatments can offer even greater benefits.
As a general rule, younger skin requires fewer microdermabrasion treatments than older skin. Whether the client’s skin is oily or dry will also affect the optimal number of treatments. And, obviously, more advanced skin problems – such as acne scars or deeper wrinkles – will require more treatments.
