When you have a conversation with someone, you want them to pay attention to what you have to say. What happens too often is that your skin gets more attention than what you have to say. If your skin is showing signs of aging or if you have a few disfiguring blemishes, you may feel self-conscious and become uncomfortable when someone is close enough to see your skin imperfections. There are an abundance of treatment measures to help you get the healthy skin you desire. Microdermabrasion is one way you can improve your skin.

Microdermabrasion improves the skin with a very simple process. A skin specialist or you (if you use a home microdermabrasion kit) take a wand filled with tiny aluminum oxide and vitamin C crystals,Guest Posting and using a control on the wand, spread the crystals across the skin. This action is just abrasive enough to remove the skin’s keratin layer (dead skin). The skin naturally removes this layer in about 4 weeks. With microdermabrasion dead skin is removed in a more evenly manner an in less than an hour. Depending on the condition of the skin, a chemical peel may also be used with microdermabrasion.

When you want to improve your skin, there are many reasons to choose microdermabrasion. Most importantly, it is safe. Many skin treatments require anesthesia and have significant side effects. Microdermabrasion is so safe that you can purchase a home kit and do it yourself. The possible side effects are minor and include redness and slight swelling. You will only need to apply a light moisturizer after the treatment. Microdermabrasion is for all skin types. Whether your skin is oily, sensitive, or fair, you can experience excellent results with microdermasion. Another benefit of microdermabrasion is that it won’t irritate sensitive skin.

Removing keratin from the skin can have an incredible effect on the skin. People with fine lines or wrinkles and those with minor acne scars are generally those who seek microdermabrasion. However, the most dramatic results occur in people with skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is characterized by skin with dark patches.

Once you have microdermabrasion performed, you are not completely out of the woods, as far as your skin is concerned. In most cases, you will have to have a few follow-up sessions. While people with acne will need fewer subsequent treatments, people with fine lines or wrinkles will have to continue the treatments on a regular basis. If you are performing microdermabrasion yourself, be sure to consult with a skin specialist for recommendations for a skin program to make sure your skin remains in a healthy condition.

In some cases, microdermabrasion might not be suitable. People who have active forms of rosacea, acne, warts, herpes, and reduced immune systems should not have microdermabrasion. In addition, people who have undiagnosed skin conditions, or have taken the acne medication Accutane, and those who are prone to cold sores should consult with their doctor before having a microdermabrasion.
