How Does Microdermabrasion Work and Who Is it Suitable for?

Microdermabrasion is a gentler form of dermabrasion, a non-invasive, non-chemical treatment where dry, dead skin cells are removed with a spray of microcrystals. The process exposes healthier, younger-looking skin and it also encourages the production of collagen and elastin to further improve the appearance of your skin.

It is suitable for people with generally healthy skin and can help in reducing age spots, light acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles. It cannot help sagging, deep folds or deep ‘ice-pick’ acne scars. If you suffer from other skin conditions, such as rosacea, you should first seek a dermatologist's opinion.

What Happens During the Microdermabrasion Procedure?

The procedure doesn’t take long–around 30 minutes. There are two methods which may be used, namely:

  • Diamond-tip microdermabrasiona diamond-tipped handpiece exfoliates the dead skin cells and sucks them up, like a vacuum cleaner. This method is safer than the crystal microdermabrasion method for around the eyes.
  • Crystal microdermabrasion: blasts small crystals onto the skin’s surface to gently lift the dead skin cells, which are then removed.

What Is the Recovery Time for Microdermabrasion?

One of the major bonuses of microdermabrasion is that, apart from a little swelling and redness to the skin, you can carry on with your normal activities immediately after the procedure. Using a good moisturizer with a high SPF afterward will help to soothe your skin and be careful when protecting it from the sun. You should be able to apply make-up if you want to.
