About microdermabrasion results and uses

How to get effective microdermabrasion results?

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion systems come in two types – the first on the market were micro-crystal microdermabrasion kits – those which use a spray of non-allergenic micro-crystals to remove the outermost layer of your skin revealing a younger and healthier complexion. The more recent version of microdermabrasion, are the diamond tip products which scratch away grime and dry/dead skin cells.

The two types achieve microdermabrasion results in a slightly different way:

Micro-crystal units ‘blast’ the skin with a high speed stream of minuscule aluminium oxide crystals which literally blast away the topmost layer of cells. Diamond tip systems ‘scratch’ away the top layer using the strength of the laser cut diamond on the end of a wand. The latter system is generally thought to be preferable as the risk to the eyes is considerably lower.

Used regularly, microdermabrasion results in the production of new skin cells which manufacturers say contains higher levels of collagen and elastin making your skin feel tighter and ore youthful than it did before.

Which type of system is right for me?

You may prefer micro-crystal microdermabrasion if you have:

  • Deep lines or scars
  • Much texture variation on your face
  • sagging

You may prefer diamond tip microdermabrasion if you have:

  • small wrinkles
  • a desire for intense exfoliation
  • have sun damaged skin

Is microdermabrasion the same as dermabrasion?

No. Microdermabrasion results in a far gentler procedure which can help to reduce or eliminate wrinkles and fine lines, light acne scars and pigmentation spots which may appear over time. Dermabrasion is more intensive and used to tackle deeper facial issues likes scars and serious damage caused by the sun.
