Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, painless and bloodless skin resurfacing technique used for revitalizing aging skin by gently removing the top-damaged layers of skin. The technique uses tiny aluminum oxide crystals to buff away dull, discolored uneven outer layer of skin revealing a new, smoother layer of fresh, glowing skin.
Microdermabrasion is a fairly simple, safe and easy procedure that uses a sandblaster-like machine, comprising of a fine abrasive tip or a crystal-throwing device connected with a vacuum suction. The crystal throwing device will spread tiny aluminum crystals on the areas of the face that need treating, while the vacuum suction will suck not only the removed skin layers but also the aluminum crystals bombarded on the face. Both the speed of crystals and vacuum pressure are adjustable. This allows the dermatologists to treat each patient differently keeping in view the severity of problem as well as the individual’s skin sensitivity and pain tolerance.
Microdermabrasion does not involve needle pricks or anesthesia. However, the area of treatment may be numbed using a topical anesthesia or numbing cream. Most patients compare the discomfort caused by Microdermabrasion with the feeling of a cat licking the face coarsely. A typical Microdermabrasion session can last anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour or so, depending on the size of the area that needs treating and the severity of the problem being treated. The best thing about Microdermabrasion is that it does not require any recovery time, and you can safely resume your routine activities immediately afterwards. Multiple sessions, combined with topical treatment may be required to get the best results.
