While there are obvious benefits to microdermabrasion, such as an enhanced appearance or more apparent youthfulness, there are some benefits to the process that are not discussed as widely. Regular application of the treatment can have long-term health implications that you may not be aware of. When it comes to the health of your skin, it is worthwhile to take a closer look at this cutting-edge cosmetic treatment
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive and chemical free method of smoothing and exfoliating skin to result in a refreshed appearance without surgical means. It is provided at a much lower cost than most cosmetic surgical methods and is most effective after several treatments that use a hand-held device to remove the surface layer of dead skin cells through microscopic abrasion and suction.
Nothing To Heal
As a non-invasive procedure that does not create any kind of wound or incision, microdermabrasion does not require a significant period of time to recover from the treatment. The procedure only causes abrasions to the very surface layer of the epidermis and does not damage tissue that isn’t already primed by the body to be shed through normal friction.
No Pain Tolerance Required
Pain is one of the most prominent reasons for patients to be reluctant to undergo an elective procedure for obvious reasons. Pain is naturally traumatic and dealing with pain after a procedure can have a high degree of impact on both physical and mental health. Many cosmetic medical procedures that require invasive surgical methods are treated with a regimen of painkilling medication, anesthetics, and other oral medications that can have side effects of even be addictive. Microdermabrasion takes this risky aftercare out of the equation. Most patients require nothing more than a soothing moisturizer and sunscreen after the treatment.
Fits Your Schedule
Many cosmetic procedures, especially those of a surgical nature, require a vast alteration to your schedule for prep time, the procedure and a lengthy recovery. The microdermabrasion treatment is designed to be no more lengthy than getting your hair or makeup done and is usually completed within an hour or less. Although multiple sessions are required for maximum results, they are easy to schedule around and can be fit into your busy life.
