Rejuvenate, repair and revive your appearance with the help of microdermabrasion.
If you’ve landed on this blog then chances are good that you are interested in getting microdermabrasion from our Indianapolis, IN, dermatologist Dr. Sonya Campbell Johnson or you want to know what is involved in this cosmetic treatment. Here’s what you should know about microdermabrasion.
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion offers patients a non-invasive skin care procedure that uses micro-crystals to exfoliate and remove the outermost layer of the skin, which contains dead skin cells. When the surface of the skin is removed this triggers the body’s natural healing response, which produces new healthy cells to replace the skin cells that were removed through microdermabrasion.
Along with providing a deep exfoliation this treatment also suctions away loose skin cells. To treat the face, microdermabrasion only takes about 30 minutes.
What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?
You could benefit from getting microdermabrasion in Indianapolis, IN, if you are dealing with clogged and enlarged pores, dull skin, uneven skin tone, sun spots, age spots and other dark spots, as well as lines, superficial scars and wrinkles. Microdermabrasion also stimulates blood flow and the production of collagen, which keeps the skin subtle and firm.
Who is a good candidate for microdermabrasion?
Most individuals looking to improve the tone and texture of their skin and treat common imperfections and early signs of aging are candidates for microdermabrasion. Those who have certain skin problems such as eczema, rosacea, lupus, psoriasis, severe acne, or herpes should not get microdermabrasion, as it can aggravate certain conditions and make them worse.
What is the recovery period for microdermabrasion?
You’ll notice results right way and you will continue to see improvements in your skin over the coming months as the body produces more collagen. It’s natural to have some pinkness or flushing after microdermabrasion. It’s important to avoid the sun and to apply sunscreen before going outside while your skin heals.
Depending on the type of problems you want to treat, it’s normal to require multiple microdermabrasion sessions (anywhere from five to 12 sessions) performed every 1-2 weeks to achieve the best results.
