What is microdermabrasion?
It’s a skin resurfacing and rejuvenation procedure that is essentially a deep physical exfoliation. This procedure can address a range of skin concerns, including acne, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and signs of aging. Its mild side effects make it a treatment for most patients of all skin types and colours. Here are 3 (of many) benefits to this treatment:
Acne breakouts typically occur when pores in the skin become clogged with dead skin cells and sebum. When pores become clogged, bacteria begins to grow within them, leading to the formation of blackheads, whiteheads, and in some cases, more severe forms of inflammatory acne. Microdermabrasion will help this as it effectively exfoliates dead skin cells and reduces sebum production.
Fine lines and wrinkles are caused by aging, genetics, and sun damage. Over time, these factors contribute to the lack of collagen. This will mean that the skin gradually loses elasticity and firmness, leading to increasing signs of aging. Microdermabrasion helps to promote collagen production; newly developed collagen can fill in and smooth any wrinkles and fine lines.
Large pores can be a result of acne, collagen loss or the build-up of excess sebum, make up and other dirt which can get trapped. Enlarged pores can easily become clogged, leading to the formation of acne. Due to its exfoliating effects, microdermabrasion can help the process in removing dirt, debris and oil from pores. This in turn reduces the visibility of large pores, as well as their likelihood of becoming clogged in the future.
