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.
Since human skin typically regenerates at approximately 30-day intervals, skin improvement with microdermabrasion is temporary and needs to be repeated at average intervals of two to four weeks for continued improvement. Usually, multiple treatments (six to 12 sessions) are recommended to see a significant improvement.
Microdermabrasion can be done as frequently as weekly or up to every eight weeks depending on your skin’s tolerance and desired cosmetic effects. Many people choose to start with weekly treatments for three sessions, then change to a monthly maintenance regimen.
Before seeing reduced signs of aging, a person may require between 5 and 16 treatments from a skin care specialist. … Most people request microdermabrasion to rejuvenate the complexion of the face and neck, but a specialist can perform the procedure on any area of skin. The results are not permanent.
The microdermabrasion procedure takes approximately thirty minutes, depending upon the skin condition, the area to be treated, and the desired outcome. Mild redness may occur for 30 minutes to half a day after the Microdermabrasion procedure, depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment.
