When you want to rejuvenate your skin, the first treatment that comes to mind might be a facial or a chemical peel. While those are effective skincare treatments, microdermabrasion can also help rejuvenate your skin. Let's take a look at a few ways this cosmetic dermatology service can help you reveal your best skin.
One of the most common reasons people invest in microdermabrasion is its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin. During a microdermabrasion treatment, your dermatologist will use an exfoliating agent -- usually a minimally abrasive tool -- to remove the outermost layers of skin cells from your face. Not only will this help exfoliate your skin, but it will stimulate the production of collagen in your body. And when your body produces more collagen, you reap the benefits of having smoother and more supple skin. So if you're worried about fine lines and small wrinkles, microdermabrasion is definitely a great treatment option to consider.
If you suffer from hyperpigmentation or acne scars, microdermabrasion may be exactly the skin treatment you've been looking for. As we mentioned earlier, the purpose of microdermabrasion is to remove the outermost layers of cells from the skin. As a result, you'll be met with newer, brighter skin post-treatment. In addition, you'll also help reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation. When a more even skin tone is what you're after, microdermabrasion should be at the top of your list of treatments to try.
Microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment to ask your dermatologist about if you want to minimize the appearance of your pores. During a treatment session, your dermatologist is helping remove dead skin cells that may be blocking your pores. With all of that dead skin out of the way, your pores are clear and less likely to get irritated. As a result, you'll be leaving your appointment with much smoother skin and pores that are less noticeable. This treatment also has the added benefit of reducing the occurrence of breakouts if clogged pores are routinely an issue for you.
Since microdermabrasion is such a gentle exfoliating treatment, you don't have to worry about getting a skin rash when all you really wanted was glowing skin. In fact, glowing skin is one of the most common reasons people invest in microdermabrasion in the first place. When the outermost layers of dead skin cells are removed from the treated area, you'll be met with brighter skin underneath.
Want to make sure your skincare routine is doing the best for you? Microdermabrasion can provide the exfoliation you need to get excellent skincare product penetration. If it seems like your current products aren't working as well, a bit of gentle exfoliation might be exactly what you need to maximize their effectiveness.
