One of the most popular skin care treatments of the day is a procedure known as microdermabrasion. Often described as a facial sandblasting or facial vacuuming these two descriptions allude to the two processes used in the treatment, or rather the two functions of the microdermabrasion machine.
Firstly and primarily the machine creates a circular air flow that forces aluminum oxide crystals to be blasted upon the skin's surface and then such up all the residue. The result is the removal of the very top layer of skin which consists mainly of dead and dying skin cells.
Microdermabrasion is a professional non-invasive cosmetic procedure which carries few risks if performed correctly by suitably qualified personnel. Though the process is rather simple a complete understanding of the skin is necessary to gain the most benefits from the treatments. Although it can now be performed by almost anybody in the comfort of their own home using equipment that costs around $200 the best results are often gained in the salon,spa or clinic.
Although your face can sometimes seem slightly reddened immediately after a treatment it very quickly subsides leaving a fantastically healthy glow. Open pores will be noticeably reduced and rather than looking dull and lifeless your skin will look radiant with a pleasant sheen. Overall the look will be far more youthful than prior to the treatment and this will improve more with further treatments.
For many the most important benefit from microdermabrasion is the removal of comedones. These are the plugs in pores which are visible in blackheads and unseen in whiteheads. As these are part of the cause of acne by using microdermabrasion to condition the skin (which is free from active acne) so the new acne does not form, it is possible to bring outbreaks quickly under control and minimize the risk of new outbreaks.
Acne can destroy a persons life, a once happy outgoing child can become something of a recluse and highly susceptible to depression. The fact that treating the areas of skin without active acne with microdermabrasion it can become less prone to a fresh outbreak. By having the treatment regularly this can almost halt it completely. This incredible fact makes this benefit one of the most important.
There are many acne treatments available and, unfortunately, not all treatments work on all people. Microdermabrasion appears to work extremely well on virtually everyone who suffers from acne and it is, therefore becoming extremely popular as both a cure and a highly effective preventative treatment.
Many people find that after acne they are, sometimes, left with scarring. Luckily microdermabrasion can be very effective at removing (or vastly reducing the visibility of) acne scars. As well as removing acne scars it can also remove other skin blemishes and also have a profound effect upon freckles. However most people know of the treatment because of it's excellent reputation for being able to remove spider and fine lines together with fine wrinkles. It can also greatly reduce the visibility of deeper wrinkles.
The truth is that microdermabrasion has a great many benefits, so many in fact, that virtually anybody would benefit after only a few appointments at their local medical spa or clinic. Because it is so popular the cost of the treatment has restocked slightly in recent years, especially in areas of increased competition and now more than ever it is within the range of almost all budgets. If you have considered it too expensive in the past maybe it is time to take another look?
Today it is possible to have microdermabrasion in the comfort of your own home with many "At Home Microdermabrasion Kits" available at very reasonable prices.
