Maintaining a flawless skin is perhaps one of the toughest jobs in the world. Even the slightest of problems can create problems in this regard. Too much exposure to the sun and environmental pollution certainly aren’t offering much help either.

To correct skin related problems, there are certain treatments that work well. Many of these are useful for a single skin problem but some can be used for multiple issues as well. One of the names of the list that really works well for a variety of treatments is microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion in Dubai is one of the most sought after skin treatments in the world and the situation is similar in the United Arab Emirates. We shall learn a little bit more about this treatment and learn why it is so highly rated.

Conditions treated by Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions. These include uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, some pigmentation issues, uneven skin texture and scarring of all kinds including trauma, surgical and acne related.

How does it work?

The treatment works by spraying tiny crystals on to the affected area of the skin with the help of a handheld device. These crystals exfoliate the top layer of the skin. The exfoliated skin and crystals are then collected with the help of a suction pump into a chamber.

This kick starts the healing process and new, healthier skill starts growing on top. At the same time, the level of collagen production is also boosted in the skin. Skin often loses its natural collagen due to pollution and sun damage. This makes the skin firm and helps its overall health. A few treatment sessions are enough to correct any condition that is affecting your skin.

Is the treatment painful?

The treatment is no painful at all. To numb down any feeling of pain, topical anesthetics may be applied prior to the commencement of the treatment session. The most pain that may be felt is similar to that of a light rubber band snapping against the skin.

Side effects and downtime

The side effects are temporary in nature and are very mild. Most patients feel some itching in the treated area along with some redness and swelling. Photosensitivity is another side effect which lasts for a few days and the patient must avoid going out during the day time. If the patient must leave, a large floppy hat and sunscreen with high SPF should be used to protect the skin.

There is no downtime associated with this treatment. A person can continue his or her regular routine after the treatment. Some routine actions like working out or application of makeup may be restricted for a few days.

How effective are the results?

The treatment is highly effective and the results it produces continue to show for a long period of time. It is important that good care of the skin should be taken after the treatment to ensure that the good results achieved can continue to show for a long time. Do keep in mind that a single treatment session will not bring the desired results so get all the required sessions in for the very best results.
