Microdermabrasion face treatments and microdermabrasion for dark spots are cosmetic facial treatments that use very fine particles to gently exfoliate a superficial layer of dead skin cells and provide collagen treatment for the face by stimulating the production of new collagen for overall facial rejuvenation. Collagen production declines with age, resulting in looser, uneven skin. Microdermabrasion face treatments reap collagen benefits by utilizing the collagen protein in the skin to make skin appear taut and smooth. Microdermabrasion can also be a treatment for stretch mark removal.
Why should I choose microdermabrasion for dark spots or as treatment for stretch mark removal?
These skin care treatments work on all skin types and colors, including microdermabrasion face treatments and treatments for stretch mark removal. Microdermabrasion stimulates your body’s collagen and can make changes to the skin without causing color change or scarring. Microdermabrasion for dark spots is used to treat light scarring, discoloration and sun damage, and can be used as treatment for stretch mark removal, among other skin treatments. These collagen treatments for the face, and targeted stretch mark removal skin care treaments, thicken collagen, resulting in facial rejuvenation.
How do treatments for stretch mark removal and microdermabrasion face treatments work?
Microdermabrasion for dark spots and microdermabrasion face treatments are non-surgical cosmetic treatments that use fine crystals under a vacuum to slough off the top layer of skin and stimulate new skin growth, which greatly enhances your look by providing collagen benefits and reducing or eliminating age spots, whiteheads and blackheads, and hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin). After a microdermabrasion face treatment, your skin will have a refreshed appearance, and fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores will be reduced or even eliminated.
The microdermabrasion skin treatment instruments are handpieces that physicians use deliver a jet of fine mineral crystals, creating gentle skin exfoliation. The professional handpieces have independent adjustments which provide the operator with superior control of both the crystal flow and the vacuum. Microdermabrasion face treatments and microdermabrasion treatments for stretch mark removal work best on problems such as dull skin, brown spots, and age spots.
Microdermabrasion skin treatments, however, are not effective for deeper problems such as scars, wrinkles, or deep acne scars. It is not dermabrasion, which is the much more aggressive removal of outer skin layers with a much greater risk of complications. With non surgical cosmetic treatments of microdermabrasion, there is less recovery time than with dermabrasion. Skin is temporarily pink but fully recovers within 24 hours, whether microdermabrasion was used as a treatment for stretch mark removal or for cosmetic facial treatments. Microdermabrasion skin care treatments do not require surgery or anesthesia. That means there is no “down time” for healing.
How long do microdermabrasion skin treatments take?
Each microdermabrasion face treatment, use of microdermabrasion for dark spots or treatment for stretch mark removal takes about 30 minutes. Many people have a series of microdermabrasion skin treatments on a monthly basis, and then one every few months as part of a maintenance plan.
Do microdermabrasion skin treatments hurt?
You may feel a mild scratching as treatments for stretch mark removal or microdermabrasion face treatments remove the superficial skin cells. Additionally, you’ll notice a vibrating sensation akin to a massage during skin care treatments. There is also a suction mechanism to lift off the dead skin during cosmetic facial treatments and other microdermabrasion procedures. After your microdermabrasion skin treatments, we will recommend a moisturizer and sunscreen to enhance and prolong your result. Avoid sun exposure for a few days immediately after the microdermabrasion face treatments or stretch mark removal procedures since your skin will be more sensitive to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Any discomfort experienced as part of microdermabrasion skin treatments is usually short-lived. The skin can sometimes be flaky and dry for several days, thus the need for a quality moisturizer.
