Skin resurfacing is a technique to remove the dead or damaged cells of the epidermis. These cells can block pores, prevent natural skin respiration, and cause the facial skin to look discolored and brittle. If the surface of the skin is damaged, wrinkles are more likely to form because of the lack of moisture in the tissue. Microdermabrasion safely removes dead and damaged cells. Unlike traditional skin abrasion, which uses a planing tool to remove the epidermis, the DermaSweep system uses a gentle vacuum to sweep away dead skin cells and rejuvenate the skin. We recommend microdermabrasion to patients who want to treat fine wrinkles, age spots, and superficial scarring.
Removing Dead And Damaged Skin Cells
Microdermabrasion is considered one of the safest and most convenient skin rejuvenation procedures available because it doesn’t target the lower skin layers. The process safely removes the upper epidermis, stimulating the skin to produce a new layer from down below.
Skin is regenerated when the top layer is removed. The skin always grows from the bottom up, and the visible layer of epidermis was once of a slightly different composition when it was underneath the surface layer. Microdermabrasion speeds up this process while also encouraging collagen production.
How We Perform The Procedure
Microdermabrasion is commonly performed by using an instrument that sucks in crystals and sprays them across the face under high pressure. However, the DermaSweep system we use is different. Since crystals can make the process unnecessarily painful, we eliminate the discomfort completely by using a vacuum to gently lift the skin and remove dead skin cells. This process stimulates blood flow in the treated area, which in turn promotes collagen production. The result is cleaner, smoother, younger-looking skin for you. This gentle treatment is useful for treating skin conditions such as fine lines, age spots, large pores, mild acne scars and skin discoloration.
What Happens Afterward?
The treatment stimulates skin rejuvenation. The body sends nutrients to the lower skin layers, and a new layer of epidermis forms soon afterward. The lower dermal layers are now rich with collagen, so the entire face is smoother and more even in tone. As a result, age spots, fine wrinkles, and light scars will become much less visible.
