How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliation system. It works by removing the most superficial layer of the skin, also known as the dead layer of skin cells. The dead skin makes the skin appear dull, unhealthy, dry and congested. It can even make wrinkles look deeper and pigmentation darker.
Skin is the largest organ in our body, made up of millions of cells which regenerate daily. Although our body constantly produces new skin cells, the dead layer of the skin covers up these new fresh skin cells. Regular microdermabrasion treatments will safely remove the dead layer of skin and promotes new skin cell growth. This painless process exposes the younger, fresher skin beneath and reveals a more even color and smoother texture. The skin looks fresher and healthier with fewer lines, wrinkles. It can definitely improve acne and acne scaring as well as lightening skin pigmentation beautifully.
In order to see significant results, a series of microdermabrasion treatments are required. Depending on your skin concerns, it can take anywhere between four to 8 treatments to see good results. Regular maintenance treatments are recommended every 4-8 weeks, and a suitable skin regime should be followed.
