Given its extraordinary convenience and effectiveness, Microdermabrasion remains one of the three most popular dermatological and cosmetic treatments for improving the tone, texture and overall appearance of skin. DocShop reports that this “lunchtime facial” is non-surgical and virtually pain-free, making it easy for busy patients on the go. What’s more is that it works beneath the surface, promoting greater circulation and collagen production. For many, Microdermabrasion allows them to put their best face forward.
How does Microdermabrasion work? To begin, it sloughs dead and dull superficial skin cells, which rejuvenates the skin. Additionally, it revitalizes skin, helps enlarged and clogged pores, and minimizes fine lines, acne scars and uneven pigmentation and texture.
Though Microdermabrasion is non-invasive and safe, however, it is not without risks. Ultimately, this comes down to whom is performing the treatment. While an aesthetician at a salon or spa may provide a Microdermabrasion treatment, risks are minimal when a dermatologist or plastic surgeon provides treatment. Some important considerations are proper use of the microdermabrasion applicator and machine. Improper use of the wand and machine may result in the patient’s skin being damaged or scarred. In turn, if the microdermabrasion crystals enter the patient’s eyes, they can cause irritation. It’s also important to remember that a dermatologist and/or plastic surgeon is able to detect any skin conditions that might affect the success of the treatment.
While complications associated with Microdermabrasion are rare, it is simply too risky to take chances when it comes to a prominent feature such as your face.
