Has your skin lost its luster? A buildup of dead skin cells on the surface can really have a negative impact on your complexion. When this happens, you need an exfoliation treatment that can help to restore the radiance of your skin. Here at the office of Dr. Michael I. Jacobs, we encourage you to learn more about the benefits of microdermabrasion.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation treatment that works by mechanical means. We use abrasive particles to break up the stratum corneum skin layer and reveal fresh skin underneath. The stratum corneum is the very top layer of your skin is composed of dead skin cells, oils, and cellular waste. When skin cells mature, they rise to the surface of the skin and slough off when they die. In some cases, these skin cells can build up after they die. This is similar to a layer of dust on a shiny surface. Microdermabrasion allows us to remove this dulling build up and reveal the radiance of your skin underneath.
Microdermabrasion also increases the skin penetration of topical skin care products. The stratum corneum can act as a barrier to prevent many topicals from penetrating very far into your skin. After your treatment, you will enjoy increased skin penetration and enhanced effectiveness of creams, lotions, gels, serums, and ointments.
What Does Microdermabrasion Treat?
The treatment is safe and effective for those with enlarged pores, superficial scars, light wrinkles, and dull complexion. Patients respond best when they undergo regular microdermabrasion treatments as part of their beauty routine. Regular procedures allow us to remove any subsequent buildup of the stratum corneum skin layer.
Would I Benefit from This Treatment?
You may want to consider a microdermabrasion treatment if you want to brighten your complexion and have a healthy glow. It may also help you if you have minor sun damage, fine lines, or superficial acne scars. It helps in cases of clogged skin pores and skin spots. The treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors.
It is important to understand that this treatment is not for those with serious skin conditions like dermatitis, eczema, active rosacea, or deep acne. Regular sessions and maintenance treatments are needed for optimal effectiveness.
What Will Happen at My Treatment?
We use a special handpiece to spray tiny crystals onto your skin. These abrasive particles will break up the stratum corneum skin layer and remove dead skin cells to instantly brighten your complexion. At the end of the procedure, we will vacuum away the microscopic particles and dead skin cells.
