Your busy schedule may not afford you much time to seek out cosmetic treatments for skin issues. You might try home remedies like washing your face every day or using lotions and creams that you can buy at the pharmacy. However, these measures might be ineffective and actually make your skin look worse. You may regain your skin’s healthy appearance without devoting a lot of time to your treatments by undergoing microdermabrasion at our center near Abbotsford.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that exfoliates and renews the skin. The treatment is low in risk and safe for a wide variety of patients who otherwise would be excluded from undergoing treatments like chemical peels or dermabrasion.
Because it is non-invasive and low-risk, it has proven itself effective in treating surface skin issues like scars and pock marks. It also comes with little downtime and is one of the better treatment methods if you need to get back to your busy schedule quickly.
How Is Microdermabrasion Done?
Microdermabrasion is performed on an outpatient basis and typically takes less than an hour to complete. We take the comfort and convenience of this treatment one step further by using DermaSweep technology, which does not involve spraying crystals onto the skin. Instead, the device gently vacuums and sweeps away the outermost layers of dead and damaged skin. As the new skin cells grow back, you get an appearance that is healthier, smoother, and free from surface damages.
This technique comes with a host of benefits above traditional microdermabrasion. For example, in addition to eliminating the discomfort that often comes with crystals, the vacuum provides another layer of rejuvenation by promoting blood flow and circulation in the area.
Who Should Get Microdermabrasion?
As mentioned, this treatment is so safe that it can be offered to a wide variety of people who may not be deemed stable enough to go through treatments like chemical peels. People who are ideal candidates for microdermabrasion may have surface skin issues such as the following:
• dull or sallow skin
• mild acne
• acne discoloration
• pick marks
• superficial acne scars
The treatment is also ideal for people who are so busy with work or school that they cannot devote hours to more involved cosmetic procedures. With microdermabrasion, your skin may be pink for about 24 hours.
After that, your skin will take on a healthier and cleaner appearance, letting you get back to your normal routine faster. You do not have to take much, if any, time off work or school.
Skin issues like acne scars and pock marks can damage the surface of your skin and negatively impact your confidence in the way you look. When you do not have a lot of time to seek treatment at a doctor’s office, you might want to choose one of the fastest procedures available to you. You may get the results you want by undergoing microdermabrasion to address minor surface skin damages.
