Your face takes all kinds of damage every day; whether it’s from outside elements, pollution, or just age itself, damage will be done. Numerous skin care treatments exist to treat a variety of conditions like wrinkles, acne, scars, and other visible markings. Microdermabrasion is one such treatment that uses noninvasive methods to treat all of these skin conditions and more. This procedure removes the outer skin layer to get rid of dead cells and encourage skin renewal. The renewal encourages the growth of collagen and elastin, both of which can improve the appearance of your skin. When looking to remove superficial conditions on the face Michigan microdermabrasion is your best option.
Microdermabrasion uses fine microcrystals that are used to gently sand the skin. Your face is sprayed with the fine crystals before being gently rubbed across the skin. Microdermabrasion is less intense than dermabrasion procedures that are used to treat more extreme damage.
Microdermabrasion is best used to treat minor skin imperfections such as acne, light scarring, and wrinkles. For acne that has left scarring, microdermabrasion can reduce the appearance with desired results. The scar tissue will appear lighter and less noticeable. Individuals with current acne can also benefit from microdermabrasion with its exfoliation side effects that can help clear out clogged pores filled with oil and dirt. Rosacea can also be treated with microdermabrasion and reduce the appearance of redness. You should always check with your physician before receiving Michigan microdermabrasion to treat rosacea, since it can—rarely—negatively affect its appearance.
Candidates for Michigan Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is ideal for candidates who have superficial scarring, acne, and wrinkles and wish to reduce its appearance. Individuals with deep scar tissue should consider another treatment such as dermabrasions or chemical peels that better treat the skin defects. Microdermabrasion is not recommended for individuals who have an auto-immune disorder, warts, undiagnosed lesions, or unstable diabetes. Microdermabrasion is also not recommended for women who are currently pregnant.
