Microdermabrasion: all about this cosmetic treatment

Microderm is a great way to rejuvenate and aesthetize the skin, which can cleanse the pores and eliminate acne, stains and many skin lesions if it is done properly.


What is a Microderm?

 Microdermabrasion was first performed in Italy in 1985 and was later used in most European countries as an uncomplicated method for rejuvenating and removing dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion is a method in which, using a special device, a very fine-grained aluminum oxide crystal comes in contact with the surface of the skin at a regulated pressure and creates a superficial abrasion on the upper layers of the skin.

In addition, a suction is performed on the skin, which removes the crystals from the surface of the skin, as well as improves blood flow to the area and activates fibroblast cells, resulting in skin repair and refreshment.

Who is the Microdermabrasion useful for?

Adults who are physically healthy and have relatively minor skin diseases are the best people to use microdermabrasion.

 Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that cannot remove the drooping of the skin or deep lines. Other methods such as laser lifting and skin tightening should be used to solve these problems. Microdermabrasion is a great option for patients with fine lines and wrinkles, sunburn, pigment inequality, age-related stains, skin tissue or small scars.

How is the Microderm done?

To perform the microdermabrasion, the skin is first thoroughly cleansed of any makeup, then, depending on the type of skin and the lesion as determined by your doctor, the Microderm is performed in various directions and on multiple sites.

It takes about 20 to 30 minutes on the face and 20 minutes on the neck. After treatment, the face is cleaned and then washed with lukewarm water. An astringent cream is rubbed in place.
