Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions. The procedure uses a special applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it. 


Microdermabrasion was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1996. Since then, hundreds of microdermabrasion devices have been produced. 


There are a few different ways to do the procedure, based on the specific device used. For the case of our procedure video, we will be using a Diamond-tip hand piece.  A diamond-tip hand piece is designed to gently exfoliate dead cells in your skin. At the same time, it will suction them off immediately. The depth of the abrasion may be affected by the pressure applied on the hand piece as well as how long the suction is allowed to remain on the skin. This type of microdermabrasion applicator is generally used in more sensitive facial areas, such as close to the eyes. 


In general, microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure for most skin types and colors. People might choose to get the procedure if they have the following skin concerns: 


• fine lines and wrinkles 

• hyper-pigmentation, age spots and brown spots 

• enlarged pores and blackheads 

• acne and acne scars 

• stretch marks 

• dull-looking skin complexion 

• uneven skin tone and texture 

• melasma 

• sun damage 

Preparing for Microdermabrasion 

Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure. There’s very little you need to do to prepare for it.It a good idea to discuss skin concerns with your client prior during your client consultation. Discuss any past cosmetic procedures and surgeries, as well as allergies and medical conditions. You may advise your client to avoid sun exposure, tanning creams, and waxing for about a week before treatment. You may also advise them to stop using exfoliating creams and masks approximately three days prior to treatment. 


Side Effects

Common side effects of microdermabrasion include mild tenderness, swelling, and redness. These generally go away within a few hours after treatment. You might advise to use a moisturizer to minimize dry and flaky skin. Minor bruising may also occur. This is mostly caused by the suction process during the treatment.


What to Expect

There is little to no downtime after microdermabrasion. Client's should be able to resume to daily activities immediately. Inform them to keep skin hydrated and use gentle skin care products. Avoid using topical acne medications for at least one day after treatment. It’s extremely important to protect the skin with sunscreen. The client's skin can be more sensitive to the sun in the few weeks after the treatment. Let them know they can expect to see noticeable results immediately after the procedure. The number of microdermabrasion sessions needed will depend on the severity of the skin concerns as well as expectations.
