Is Microdermabrasion Safe

microdermabrasion-300x110Microdermabrasion is one of the easiest and safest skin treatments to improve your skin’s imperfections. Unhappiness with fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, large pores, roughly textured skin and age spots is natural, especially as we age. But what makes it so safe? How does it work? These are just a couple of common questions asked in our Scottsdale clinic. Let’s take a quick look at why this treatment is popular and comes highly recommended:

The layer of skin closest to the surface is the epidermis and is essentially composed of  dead skin cells that lie on top of skin cells that are progressively maturing.  The stratum corneum is the top layer of skin and acts as a barrier between environmental factors and the skin layers beneath it. It prevents most molecules from penetrating your skin. When lotions and moisturizers are applied, not all the moisture is absorbed. Dehydrated skin is why the stratum corneum is susceptible to small but noticeable skin blemishes, like wrinkles.

Your skin care expert will buff away your dead skin cells using a powerful abrasion tool that sprays tiny rough grains across your skin’s surface. The underlying skin is then exposed, fresh, new skin is developed, and the production of collagen is accelerated. Dramatic results are not immediate, and a number of microdermabrasion sessions is recommended.

Generally, the faster and greater the benefits derived from a cosmetic procedure, the uncertainties and side effects are also greater. More intrusive and aggressive treatments using laser technology and chemicals come with higher risks and more recovery time, making microdermabrasion a quick and safer alternative. The subtle effects from this “instant facelift” will have people asking how you’ve made your skin look rejuvenated and refreshed.
