Microdermabrasion and its benefits.
Microdermabrasion is one of the most modern cosmetic procedures which has recently became popular with the general public. Dubbed as a quick facelift, it works by applying ultra-small rough particles to the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis, in order to remove dead skin cells. This cosmetic technique is applied by a number of medical practitioners and beauticians and is not limited to the face alone – the hands, arms, chest and neck are all suitable recipients for this anti-aging treatment.
Well known celebrities such as Madonna and Mary Kate Olsen have made use of this technique to maintain their unnaturally youthful and fresh looks. Famous fashion model Naomi Campbell has also expressed her love for this skin care procedure. Gwyneth Paltrow, a leading Hollywood actress has referred to the procedure as a miracle!
Benefits of the microdermabrasion procedure:
Rejuvenates the skin: Besides having anti-aging effects such as removal of wrinkles and fine lines, this procedure exfoliates the skin of the recipient, getting rid of sun spots, pigmentation and remnants of acne.
Enhances the effects of other skin care treatments: self-tanning and makeup products yield better results if a microdermabrasion is performed prior to their application.
Microdermabrasion technique is one hundred percent non-invasive: This technique only removes dead skin from the top most layer of skin which means that there is no incision or deliberate entry made into the affected area, so recipients do not have to worry about incurring scars or experiencing pain.
It is an instant result procedure: microdermabrasionis is a rapid action alternative to other cosmetic procedures such as face lift, Botox injections and chemical peels. With a session lasting only around 5 minutes to an hour, you can begin to see instant results thanks to the negligible time required for recovery.
You can perform it at home: You do not need to disrupt your daily routine since you can easily perform the treatment at home and get on with your day job as usual. Most non-irritating cosmetics can be used within hours of the treatment.
This technique is far more affordable than cosmetic procedures.
How to make the most of the microdermabrasion procedure:
Microdermabrasion works best when it is performed regularly, since the dead skin will accumulate on the top layer within a month. For optimum results, repeat the procedure every two to four weeks.
Combine the procedure with general skincare tips such as using sunscreen, staying out of the sun when not necessary and using general skin care products will provide your skin with a surprisingly youthful aura.
Post procedure care:
For people who are extra sensitive to sunlight, it is recommended to stay in shade for at least a day after the procedure.
Avoid applying perfumes or creams containing irritants such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids straight after getting a microdermabrasion.
If you are someone who can’t afford face lifts or Botox injections, and looking for a procedure that is less invasive and with less side effects then, microdermabrasion is the anti-aging procedure that is just right for you. With its minimal side effects, lower cost and non-disruptive qualities, you can apply it on your skin with confidence, enjoy its cost effective and notice an improvement comparable to other mainstream cosmetic procedures.
