Dr. Mrs. Nirved Jain – Microdermabrasion Specialist
Microdermabrasion, also referred to as mechanical exfoliation or micro-resurfacing, is a cosmetic technique that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation along with adjustable suction to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis (skin’s outer layer). It is a non-invasive procedure, which is performed in-office.
Microdermabrasion helps in making the skin healthier and clearer. It involves partial or light abrasion of the uppermost layer of the skin (termed as the stratum corneum) so as to reveal the clear, fresh and healthy skin that lies underneath it.
Usually microdermabrasion is used in order to reduce scars or other such dermatological anomalies in the most effective and permanent way possible.
How does Microdermabrasion treatment work?
In this treatment no chemicals or laser beams are used, only aluminum oxide micro crystals are used which gently sandblast your skin, leaving it smooth and fresh. Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen production, helping your skin rejuvenate faster than normal.
What Can Micro Dermabrasion Do For Me?
Microdermabrasion can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, helps fight acne and remove acne scarring, evens skin tone, eliminates white and black heads, minimizes large pores and revitalizes dull skin. Microdermabrasion helps skin regeneration by increasing its elasticity and collagen production.
How Much Time Does Micro Dermabrasion require to complete & when are the results visible?
A typical micro derm abrasion face treatment takes between 20 and 30 minutes. However, if you want your neck or other parts of the body treated, it may last up to an hour.
Visibility of results of a microderm treatment depends on the individual’s skin and the micro dermabrasion machine used. Some patients reported changes after the first treatment where skin begins to look cleaner and healthier, but major changes (like reduction of wrinkles and scars) become visible after four to five treatments.
Are There Any Risks Involved in Microdermabrasion treatment?
Micro dermabrasion is virtually risk-free. It is non-invasive and mild, so you have nothing to worry about.
