Resurfacing treatments range from the light to deep exfoliation, and all work to brighten and rejuvenate the skin. Among the most minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments, microdermabrasion is a popular skin solution for people with a range of skin types and concerns. During microdermabrasion, your dermatologist uses fine exfoliants to gently buff away the outermost layer of skin. The outcome of this treatment is softer, smoother and healthier skin.
- Softer Skin: The outermost layer of skin, or the stratum corneum, acts as a barrier of protection to the layers of skin beneath it. However, it can also keep moisturizers that you apply to your skin from penetrating deeply, and dry skin is more prone to developing signs of aging. After microdermabrasion removes dead, dull skin cells, moisturizers and other skincare products can penetrate deeper and work more effectively for a rejuvenating, softening effect.
- Reduction in Visible Imperfections: Many noticeable flaws to the skin are located in its outer layers. With microdermabrasion, your dermatologist can reduce the visibility of discoloration, dark spots, scars, fine lines and blemishes after as little as one treatment. With repeated sessions, as dead skin is sloughed away and new cells grow, you will see a dramatic difference in the appearance and smoothness of your skin.
- Boosted Production of Healthy Cells: When you receive regular microdermabrasion treatments, the natural cycle of skin cell production is accelerated in all layers of the skin. This means that, while providing an immediate result in the outer layers of the skin, microdermabrasion also works to improve the health of your skin down to the dermis.
