When your skin is uneven, damaged by sunlight or has stretch marks, you can use a treatment method known as microdermabrasion to clear it up and get your original, beautiful skin back. You don’t have to suffer from unsightly patches, spots and lines.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
As you might infer from the name, this process involves rubbing the skin with an abrasive tool that peels away dead skin cells and other unwanted particles. The instrument is only mildly abrasive, so it won’t damage your skin or break the flesh and cause bleeding. It actually feels very comfortable and soothing to have it work across your body, treating the skin.
As the instrument is used on your skin, it gets rid of blackheads, age spots, wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, large pores, acne and acne scars. It may not completely get rid of any of these skin problems, but it can definitely lessen their appearance. It exfoliates the skin and enables it to look refreshed and new. Once the process is complete, your skin should look smooth and lighter, with dark spots disappearing or lightened.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
By undergoing this simple procedure, you can have your skin rejuvenated. You will look so much younger and your skin will be so much smoother that you might wonder why you never bothered to have this treatment process performed before.
A lot of skin problems will clear up and start to disappear after having a microdermabrasion treatment. Minor ones may go away completely, while more serious ones, such as acne scars, should lighten considerably.
This is a painless procedure with no side effects to worry about, which makes it one of the safest and painless ways to clear up a variety of skin problems.
This can often work to get rid of or lighten skin problems that other treatment methods cannot get rid of. It is also far cheaper than similar treatment methods. This is a great, low-cost procedure for people who want results but don’t want to undergo multiple, expensive treatments.
What to Expect
There should be no lingering pain from undergoing this procedure. Other treatment methods may require a recovery period, and you may need medications to deal with the pain and discomfort. With microdermabrasion, Cherie may recommend a cream or moisturizer to help the treatment effects last longer. This is something you can apply regularly to ensure that your skin looks great for a long time to come. Most people only need a single treatment, but if your case is severe, Cherie may suggest further visits to deal with the issues.
How effective this procedure is for you will depend on avariety of factors. Your skin’s pigmentation, the severity of your skin’s problems and how long you have had some of these skin conditions will determine how effective microdermabrasion will be for you. In some cases, you may want to try laser surgery afterwards for improved results, and Cherie or your dermatologist can recommend the best course of action for you.
