Microdermabrasion adds unique value to therapeutic and cosmetic armamentariums.
Microdermabrasion is a simple, painless procedure that does not interfere with the normal activities of the patient.
It is a non-invasive, non-surgical based procedure for revitalizing and rejuvenating the skin.
Microdermabrader functions as a controlled graduated closed vacuum pump using the physical action of inert crystals to exfoliate the top layer of skin.
Microdermabrasion without crystals (diamond tip): It uses a diamond-tipped handpiece that mechanically abrades the skin and the usual suction system that vacuums the exfoliated particles away.
The most important advantage of Microdermabrasion is that it can be successfully used on light or dark skin to treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees, and hands.
It is generally indicated for:-
- Skin Polishing and resurfacing of face and back for glowing skin. It is the most desired procedure before special events like weddings and Navratri.
- Enlarged pores
- Superficial wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Sun damaged skin
- Dull and blemished skin
- Scar revision
Good to know that it is non-invasive and non-wounding to the skin surface; the procedure entails virtually no discomfort, downtime, or very short recovery time.
Optimal treatment recommendations are a series of 5 to 6 weekly microdermabrasion followed by maintenance, which may be once or six monthly.
