Laser Genesis Med Spa: Best Skin Care Clinic In Mississauga
Microdermabrasion can be considered almost as a lunch time facial, but yet also as one of the most popular non-invasive treatments in aesthetic dermatology.
It is a gentle procedure involving the abrasion of dead skin by aluminum oxide crystals and vacuuming the dead skin cells along with the crystals.
Once the dead skin is removed the skin is left feeling tingling fresh and alive. When the process is repeated several times the new skin cells completely replace the old skin cells leaving visibly healthier looking skin.
The apparent increased popularity of Micro Dermabrasion treatments has led to many innovations. There are presently two different types of systems being used.
Crystal Microdermabrasion systems are considered a traditional choice and involve the use of safe Aluminum Oxide crystals. There are no reported side effects or health hazards to the use of these crystals.
Aluminum oxide is a natural compound and possesses various qualities which make it an excellent choice for use in microdermabrasion systems.
It is one of the hardest materials and when used in microdermabrasion, it does not fragment. Its anti-bacterial properties also make it an ideal choice for acne treatments.
At Laser Genesis , we only use safe medical grade crystals used in only the most proper manners available.
Diamond Microdermabrasion involves the use of a wand with micro diamond crystals to cause abrasion and exfoliation. It is fast becoming a popular choice over the crystal microdermabrasion with people who do not like the mess of crystals.
At Laser Genesis we offer both solutions with either crystals or diamond microdermabrasion choices to all of our clients. You may wish to learn more about the microdermabrasion treatment device.
Benefits or Advantages of Micro Dermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion treatments benefit people with very fine facial lines , uneven skin texture, or clogged and enlarged pores. It also benefits people with mild acne and superficial scarring.
However it is not a recommended choice for people with very active and cystic acne. With gentle sloughing off of the dead skin some improvement in sun damage is also seen.
By repeated treatments great improvement is noticed in the pore size. As we age and our natural exfoliation process slows down and a lot of debris starts collecting in our pores thus making them look larger.
As the pores are cleansed the texture of the skin gets more refined and the pores look smaller and the overall appearance of the skin improves.
Microdermabrasion is also an excellent choice for people who do not like the discomfort of any kind and still like to see some improvement in their skin conditions.
There is no evident redness, peeling or swelling after a microdermabrasion treatment.
No pre treatment is required in the case of microdermabrasion and proper skin cleansing issues should be observed.
Microdermabrasion systems using aluminum oxide crystals have some drying effect on the skin for some time after the treatment. This drying effect greatly benefits the people with excessively oily skin thus improving the acne.
Repeated microdermabrasion treatments are required every two weeks to see considerable improvement in the stretch marks.
In summary, it can be stated that microdermabrasion is a mild and safe treatment for minor skin concerns like:
- Very fine lines
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage
- Acne and acne scars
- Hyper and hypo pigmentation
- Stretch marks
- Excessive oiliness
