We are always researching and testing new products and treatments that come to the beauty market, but we’re often left a little deflated. Those expensive creams and tools often feel like someone’s trying to sell us snake oil. Did anyone actually get results from this product, or did they just want to make a product with the trendiest new ingredient? Even worse, it often takes way too long to see results from at-home treatments. Your return window is gone and you’re stuck with something that didn’t even work.
We don’t have time for that, especially when we know that so many professional treatments work better than much of what you can do at home. Keep reading to learn about microdermabrasion and how it can be used to resurface the skin.
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive spa treatment that rejuvenates the appearance of the skin by treating sun damage, hyperpigmentation and other unwanted skin problems. This procedure uses tiny particles to manually exfoliate the outer layer of skin, leaving younger-looking skin and a bright, glowing appearance behind. Microdermabrasion can be combined with other procedures such as chemical peels or laser treatment for heightened results, too.
What does microdermabrasion treat?
If you’re concerned with the amount of sun damage or other superficial skin issues like sun spots or fine lines you’ve gathered over the years, microdermabrasion can help treat them. Microdermabrasion is a great alternative to chemical peels and other resurfacing treatments to help give you a glowing boost.
How long before I see results?
We love microdermabrasion because of how quickly we can see results from this treatment. Often, we recommend having a series of treatments to get the absolute best results, but you should be able to see results immediately after each treatment. Is there anything better than knowing what you’re getting is working?
How long do results last?
The best results are found in patients who take great care of their skin after their treatments. That means cleansing thoroughly, moisturizing properly, and wearing sunscreen every day.
