How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

April 1, 2019 by A Younger You


So many women suffer from dull-looking skin, whether that be from the natural aging process or too many hours spent tanning in the sun. Fortunately, you do not have to resort to costly and invasive treatments to restore your skin's natural radiance. A Younger You offers a cost-effective and non-invasive alternative at our high-end medical spa in Burlington and Brookfield. Our team of expert providers would be happy to work with you and help you eliminate your skin concerns by giving you customized microdermabrasion treatments that will restore life and radiance to your skin.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion treatments are the leading skin care procedure used to restore that youthful glow to your complexion. They reduce the appearance of common signs of aging and even out your skin tone and texture. These treatments also reduce the appearance of acne scars and age spots. It's a simple, well-tolerated procedure that strips away the dead skin cells that have collected on the surface of the skin over time. These dead skin cells cause your skin to look dull, dry and lifeless. These treatments gently remove the superficial layer of skin to reveal the fresh radiance of the newly exposed skin.

Our professional will work with you to come up with the right skin care regimen to address your particular skin care concerns and needs. A series of treatment sessions is usually recommended, and these are performed on a regular basis until the desired result has been achieved. Afterward, you can do follow-up treatments as needed to maintain the fresh look of your skin.

How Does the Treatment Work?

The skilled technicians at A Younger You specialize in the state-of-the-art diamond-tip microdermabrasion method, which is great for people with sensitive skin. Technicians use diamond-tipped hand pieces to exfoliate and rid your skin of dead skin cells that can't be removed with standard exfoliation methods. The tool extracts the dead skin and polishes the dermis underneath.

After treatment, our technician may lightly massage your fresh, new skin with a hydrating moisturizer that will leave your skin bright and glowing. Treatments are convenient and require no numbing cream or anesthetic, and all skin types tend to tolerate this procedure well. The treatment is performed in the comfort of our office, and you are free to go about your daily routine as soon as you have finished.

What are the Benefits?

These facial treatments will leave you with vibrant, rejuvenated skin and have a host of benefits, including:

– Increased collagen production
– Improved rate of skin cell turnover
– Boosts circulation
– Eliminates acne and blackheads

Because the procedure helps to boost collagen production in the skin's cells, people with fine lines and wrinkles can see a dramatic improvement with microdermabrasion. Similarly, those who suffer from acne scars and hyperpigmentation tend to see a dramatic change in their skin's appearance because the treatment will improve skin cell turnover, which speeds up the process of replacing damaged cells.

Those who suffer from chronic acne and blackheads also see a dramatic reduction in breakouts because microdermabrasion improves circulation in the skin, which in turn supplies skin cells with more oxygen and nutrients to fight breakouts. It also extracts blackheads by pulling out all the clogged oil trapped beneath the skin's surface, which also will reduce the number of future breakouts.

Who is a Good Candidate?

This type of treatment is safe to use on all skin types. Practically anyone looking for an improved complexion can benefit from the procedure. The treatments are especially helpful in treating the following skin conditions:

– Dull complexion
– Sun damage
– Uneven skin tone and texture
– Acne marks and scars
– Blackheads and enlarged pores
– Hyperpigmentation
– Age spots or brown spots

What Can You Expect Before and After the Treatments?

Preparing for the treatment is very simple, and our professional can give you a few guidelines to follow in the days leading up to your appointment. For example, we may ask you to avoid tanning lotions or spray tans, waxing on the face and excessive sun exposure for a set amount of time before the treatment. It also is advisable that you avoid exfoliating creams and masks in the days prior to the procedure to ensure you do not irritate your skin.

Unlike more invasive skin procedures, microdermabrasion offers a safe alternative that requires little to no recovery time. Your skin may look slightly pink or red after the procedure, especially if you have a lighter complexion, but this will fade within hours to days of the treatment. Your skin also will be more sensitive than usual since the outer layer has been removed. You will need to exercise caution in the sun to avoid side effects. Additionally, we will advise you to keep your skin extra hydrated and moisturized immediately following the treatment.

What Makes Microdermabrasion Different from Other Facial Procedures?

Many facial services that remove dead skin can be invasive, harsh and costly. For example, some treatments are meant to strip the outer layer of the skin similar to microdermabrasion procedures, but they leave you with red and cracking skin for days or even weeks following the treatment and are often quite uncomfortable.

Microdermabrasion, on the other hand, is a well-tolerated, cost-effective treatment and does not require you to go under the knife. There is no long recovery time involved with this treatment, allowing you to return to your normal activities immediately. More women and men are using microdermabrasion to treat their skin complaints and acne problems because there is no discomfort associated with the procedure, unlike many other available alternatives.
