Young Woman Receiving Microdermabrasion Therapy In Beauty Clinic

Microdermabrasion is a specialized kind of skincare. The very top layer of skin is softly scraped away using a specialized applicator. Another microdermabrasion approach accomplishes the same purpose by spraying either aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate. You can regard it as safe and acceptable for most skin types and colors.

Microdermabrasion is not an intrusive procedure, but it does need specialized knowledge and instruments. As such, you’ll want to hire a trained specialist to accomplish it. Typically, you will be sitting in a reclining posture or laying down, and the esthetician will operate on the targeted region using the selected instruments. The treatment often ends with the application of a calming moisturizer and sunscreen.

Age spots and uneven pigmentation may be treated

Microdermabrasion is sometimes used to treat hyperpigmentation. It might be melasma or any other age spots or darker areas on the skin. Women who had a combination of microdermabrasion and laser treatment saw a significant improvement in their skin tone.

You’ll probably want several treatments of microdermabrasion to notice improvements for hyperpigmentation. Microdermabrasion is recommended in conjunction with topical vitamin C and laser therapy. The good news is that you may need two treatments to see an improvement.

Pores are reduced in size

Excess sebum, cosmetic products, and other debris may clog pores due to acne, photodamage, and collagen loss.  Apart from being a cosmetic concern, larger pores are prone to clogging, resulting in acne production.

Consider Microdermabrasion in Fort Lauderdale as an excellent process in removing dirt, debris, and oil from pores due to its exfoliating properties. It lowers the appearance of big pores and their susceptibility to clogging in the future.

Among the most significant Microdermabrasion advantages is its safety, mainly performed by a competent professional. It is less invasive and hazardous than chemical peels or laser therapy but still produces excellent results. When you visit Take Shape Skin Care in Fort Lauderdale, the recovery period is generally just a few hours.

Enhances the absorption of transdermal medications

Microdermabrasion temporarily reduces the skin’s protective barrier function and increases skin permeability by ablating the superficial skin. These actions help the skin absorb serum infusions, often used in conjunction with microdermabrasion treatments. It eventually boosts the procedure’s total skin-renewing impact. Additionally, microdermabrasion has been shown to enhance the skin’s capacity to absorb some drugs, such as insulin and vaccinations.

Acne and acne scars treatment

Microdermabrasion may positively impact acne, depending on the cause of your acne. It is beneficial in reducing the appearance of acne scars, but bear in mind that microdermabrasion cannot remove severe acne scars. On the other hand, microdermabrasion does not need anesthetic or healing time. It makes it a suitable treatment option for specific individuals with acne scars who want to avoid more invasive procedures.

Reduces Stretch marks

Stretch marks are often apparent after a severe and abrupt weight loss, particularly during pregnancy. They are caused by decreased melanin synthesis and alterations to the collagen fibers found in the skin. Microdermabrasion was proven to be equally effective as topical tretinoin cream in decreasing the appearance of stretch marks in recent research. Microdermabrasion shows to be much more effective when paired with platelet-rich plasma treatment.
