After the procedure the skin is smoother, refreshed, and more elastic. By removing the keratinized layers of skin, skin care products are more easily penetrated into the skin thus making them more effective.
Microdermabrasion as a safe skin exfoliation may be performed to help diminish the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation. Moreover it helps with photo-damage, shallow acne scars as well as diminishes fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and is a highly effective anti-aging strategy.
The superficial, safe exfoliation and abrasion of the skin also triggers the body’s own natural repair mechanism which triggers the production of new collagen and releases glycosaminoglycan in order to rehydrate and replenish the skin. This has a remarkable softening action on surface lines and wrinkles.
Microdermabrasion can also be used to treat sun-damaged skin and to improve acne but must be repeated periodically to be effective. It is important to be gentle with your skin for 24-48 hours post treatment and always remember to an SPF sunscreen.
