The Many Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion has been around for many years. While many swear by it, others still may not completely understand what it really does for your skin and why it's such an effective skin treatment option to consider.
Microdermabrasion systems have seen many new innovations and upgrades over the years, but overall the main idea of the machines has stayed the same. Microderm uses a stream of aluminum oxide crystals paired with vacuum suction for both a deep exfoliation and pore clearing.
Exfoliation is essential to the health of the skin. Your skin has a natural cell turnover process in which it sheds its outermost layer. But as we age, this process slows down and dead skin is left to clog pores, make the skin appear dull, and can worsen the look of texture. Removing these dead skin cells is key in anti-aging, acne management, and skin brightening.
For more mature skin, assisting the skin with its shedding process is crucial. Long term exfoliation can assist in collagen production as well as helping minimize wrinkles and fine lines. Whether the goal is to focus on anti-aging or just deeper exfoliation, microderm is a great way to get there.
Microdermabrasion is also a great stimulant for blood and lymphatic flow. The vacuum of the microderm system not only removes wastes from the skin such as blackheads and clogged pores, it also gets the blood flowing to the tissue.
Extra blood flow is always a good thing. The vacuum gently sucks the skin, stimulating the motion of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is responsible for removing toxins from the body, aiding in the detoxification process and overall improving skin conditions.
Clients suffering from acne-prone skin will also benefit from this treatment. Dead skin cells can mix with dirt and sebum to clog pores, producing breakouts. Dealing with acne is always a little tricky. People with breakouts often tend to over strip the skin thinking this will help clear. The opposite is true. When the skin is over stripped, the oil glands compensate by producing more oil.
Microderm is a great way to exfoliate without stripping the skin. Keeping acne-prone skin exfoliated is very important. Using effective exfoliation techniques is proven to help not only with the cell turnover but also oil control.
Exfoliation is also a beneficial way to help our medical grade products penetrate and do their job. Skin can sometimes be a tough barrier to penetrate. Typically only a certain amount of product can pass through without the help of exfoliation removing the dead skin that would hinder the penetration process. This allows the skin to get the most it can possibly get out of each treatment.
When microdermabrasion is performed on a regular basis, people see the most improvements in their skin. Monthly to bi-monthly treatments are recommended. Microderm can be paired with other services to make it more powerful. At Advanced Laser Clinic, we most commonly pair it with light chemical peels, LED light therapy, infusion systems, and ultrasound.
Because it is such a safe and effective skin treatment, it is safe to say that microdermabrasion is here to stay. It can work wonders for all skin types. Microderm's exfoliation treatment provides customizable balanced exfoliation. This is essential maintenance for the health of the skin, aiding in all skincare routines.
