Microdermabrasion is Safe, and Effective At Removing Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Often called “microderm” for short, microdermabrasion is a procedure to help exfoliate or temporarily remove a few of the top layers of the skin called the epidermis.
Unlike the older crystal microderm system, the diamond microdermabrasion does not produce particles from crystals that may be inhaled into patients’ nose or blown into the eyes. Hence, diamond microdermabrasion is regarded as having higher safety for use on areas around the eyes and lips.
Generally, the slower the movement of the microderm hand piece against the skin and the greater the numbers of passes over the skin, the deeper the skin treatment.
Much like brushing your teeth, microderm helps to gently remove skin “plaque” and skin debris.
Since human skin typically regenerates at approximately 30 day intervals, skin improvement with microdermabrasion is temporary and needs to be repeated at average intervals of two – four weeks for continued improvement.
Multiple treatments in combination with sunscreen, sun avoidance, and other skin care creams yield best results.
