Microdermabrasion is one of the most painless and minimally invasive procedures, providing deep exfoliation of dead skin cells, resulting in a fresher, more youthful and more glowing appearance to the complexion. The epidermis, or outer layer of the skin, will have a softer feel and a smoother look.
The beautifying changes microdermabrasion make in the appearance of the outer layer of the skin reveal themselves first, however, there are also beneficial effects to the dermis, the layer of skin lying beneath the epidermis, not as immediately noticeable, but with effects of longer-term benefits.
The dermis is the area providing elasticity and strength to the skin from the blood vessels located there which contain the collagen protein. Collagen is responsible for the integrity of the structure of the skin. Lack of collagen causes skin to wrinkle. During microdermabrasion, when the coarse-tipped instrument scrapes the skin to exfoliate, it also increases the flow of blood in the dermis which helps to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen. Over the course of treatment, the skin will improve itself through the increased collagen production, showing even more profound effects to the outer layer of skin as well.
Another benefit to the abrasion is that when the outer layer of skin is scraped away, cosmetics that are rich in vitamins and minerals are more easily absorbed into the new layer of skin, no longer being blocked by the dead cells. There may also be a noticeable difference in fine lines, minor scarring and prior skin damage from overexposure to the sun after several treatments.
Any skin dryness or minor inflammation experienced immediately following the microdermabrasion treatments in Chandler will disappear in a day or less. It is just the initial effect of the system responding to the new process of repairing the damaged skin cells. There is no downtime to the very quick procedure. Going right back to regular daily activities is not an issue. Call us today at Ciao Bella Cosmetic Surgery for more information about Microdermabrasion.
