Many people have issues with the appearance of their skin. Age, chemical and sun exposure can have damaging effects on the skin. Years of this exposure can cause skin to look older and unhealthy. This can have serious affects on a person’s appearance and self confidence. Fortunately, there are treatments that can help a person have healthier looking skin.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that can treat signs of age and damage to the skin. This treatment uses no chemicals and is non-invasive. It utilizes a concentration of micro-crystals to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. This process reveals the healthier looking skin underneath, as well as promotes the production of elastin and collagen in the underlying skin layer.
How does it help?
This treatment removes the damaged and dead skin cells. It can remove dark spots and discoloration due to damage from the sun or chemicals. It can minimize fine lines and wrinkles. It can even reduce the appearance of small scars and stretch marks. It is also beneficial in helping people who suffer from issues with skin texture and dry skin. It can even help to remove problem acne, large pores and blackheads.
Where is this treatment available?
At one time, this procedure could only be performed by a dermatologist or aesthetician trained in microdermabrasion. A person would have to make an appointment with the local dermatologist or aesthetician and pay the high costs of such a procedure. For those who did not live near a person that offered this treatment, they would be forced to drive the long distance or go without it.
At home treatments
There are now microdermabrasion at home products that can provide the same great treatment in the comfort of one’s own home. There are many products available for purchase that can provide the same, safe and effective treatment previously gotten at the dermatologist. This provides easier access for many people. In addition, it can be a lot less costly than an office visit. The advent of these systems have made it easier for anyone to have younger, healthier looking skin.
