A light cosmetic procedure that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. It uses two parts: an exfoliating material of diamond flakes and a machine based suction to gently lift up the skin during exfoliation.
Microdermabrasion is considered a relatively simple, easy, painless, non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure. The vacuum pressure and speed are adjusted depending on the sensitivity and tolerance of the skin. Minimal to no recovery time is required and most people immediately return to daily activity after a session. Makeup and non-irritating creams can usually be applied within a few hours or right after the treatment. Since there is an often immediate increased minor skin sensitivity after microdermabrasion, irritating products like glycolic acids, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Retinoid products or fragranced creams and lotions are typically avoided right after the procedure. Skin will be much more sensitive to sun exposure.
It is best to keep out of the sun and wear sunscreen at all
times after the procedure.
Unlike the older crystal microdermabrasion system, the
diamond microdermabrasion does not produce particles
from crystals that may be inhaled into patients’ nose or
blown into the eyes. Hence, diamond microdermabrasion
is regarded as having higher safety for use on areas around
the eyes and lips.
Microdermabrasion may be performed to help diminish
the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, and
photo-damage, as well as diminish fine lines, wrinkles,
acne, and shallow acne scars. A further benefit of microdermabrasion is enhanced skin penetration by other skin creams and serums. Removing dead skin (stratum corneum of the epidermis) will aid in the penetration of skin care products and medications by up to 10-50%. The controlled skin exfoliation afforded by microdermabrasion will allow make-up and self-tanning products to go on much more smoothly.
