Top 5 Facts About Microdermabrasion
Safe? Painless? Invasive? Side effects? Dangerous? Results? The questions are many, answers are few. We are back again and this time to give you all the dope on microdermabrasion. Know these top facts about how you can get smooth and polished skin with microdermabrasion.
1. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive
Yep, that’s true. There are no incisions or cuts that are required for a microdermabrasion treatment. Tiny particles are blasted across your skin after which the dead skin cells are sucked up by vacuum. Think of it as a super charged facial scrub. Sounds pretty smooth, isn’t it?
2. Microdermabrasion is safe
Generally, microdermabrasion has virtually no side effects. Unlike dermabrasion, its ‘micro’ counterpart does not give you scarring, bruising or bleeding. You can expect glowing skin after the procedure and usually walk straight back to work after a treatment, if there are no complications.
3. Microdermabrasion does not require medical help
Yes, it’s true! Since microdermabrasion is not a surgical procedure, it is not mandatory for a medical practitioner to perform the treatment. There are home-use machines which you can use to perform microdermabrasion within the comfort of your home. If this is not your cup of tea, you should know that this treatment can be done either at the salon or at the doctor’s. We usually find that physicians use more powerful machines than the salon professionals. So feel free to hop into your next-door-to-work salon during your lunch break and come out with fresh and vibrant skin.
