Microdermabrasion makes a great treatment choice when your skin has become dull and lifeless. It is a popular non-invasive cosmetic treatment that does not require sedation or extensive downtime. Over time, factors like sun damage, aging, genetics, or acne can cause undesirable changes in the texture of your skin, leading to facial skin imperfections. This treatment helps to polish the outer layer of your skin to reveal fresher, smoother skin underneath.
The Stratum Corneum Skin Layer
When you are dealing with a dull complexion, it is usually because of a buildup of material on the surface of your skin that is blocking fresher skin below. The stratum corneum is a skin layer composed of dead skin cells, oils, and cellular debris. When skin cells mature, they rise to the top layer of your skin and eventually slough off when they die. In some cases, they can build up on the surface of your skin and block its natural radiance.
Microdermabrasion works by removing the stratum corneum skin layer using a form of exfoliation. No living tissue is affected by the treatment, so no sedation or downtime is necessary. You can resume work or daily activities right after your quick treatment. Clients who respond best to the treatment are those who undergo regular sessions as a part of their beauty routine to prevent a subsequent buildup of the stratum corneum.
Before undergoing any type of cosmetic treatment, you should understand what it is capable of doing and what it cannot do. You may want to consider undergoing a microdermabrasion treatment if you are looking to brighten your complexion and enjoy a healthy glow. It can help you if you are dealing with skin that has been affected by sun damage, fine lines, or superficial acne scars. It also helps when you have clogged pores or simply want to maintain healthy, clear skin.
Microdermabrasion is not a suitable treatment for serious skin problems. You will obtain maximum results when undergoing multiple treatment sessions and maintenance treatments.
