Why microdermabrasion reviews from our Milpitas dermatology center are so good
Today, there are multiple ways in which the tone, texture, and general appearance of the skin can be improved. Your dermatologist offers several minimally-invasive and non-invasive treatments that can efficiently address many of the signs of aging and sun damage. Microdermabrasion is a popular treatment that gets great reviews in Milpitas and beyond for good reason.
The turnover of skin cells is a natural process. However, the combination of biochemical changes in the body and sun damage leads to visible changes in the skin. At some point, most people find that these changes are ever present. Turning over a new leaf, so to speak, is not difficult when you incorporate appropriate skin care with professional treatments into your skin care plan. The purpose of microdermabrasion in this plan is to accelerate cellular turnover in the skin. Performed regularly, this treatment maintains a more vibrant, healthy, youthful appearance.
What is microdermabrasion?
In-office microdermabrasion is the gentle and painless exfoliation of dead skin cells. When these surface cells are removed using our efficient hand held device, new skin cells are able to shine through. Depending on the degree of correction needed, and the concern that needs to be addressed, we may recommend a series of treatments. Patients who wish to get a jump start in their fight against aging and sun damage, as well, may wish to make microdermabrasion a part of their skin care routine. With these treatments, we can treat:
- Hyperpigmentation and sun spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Excessive dryness
- Minor acne scarring
Aside from the immediate benefit of more glowing, youthful skin, microdermabrasion is also beneficial for long term skin health. When dead cells are removed from the surface of skin, everyday topical solutions, as well as professional topical treatments, can be better absorbed into healthy skin cells, maximizing the absorption of nutrients and corrective substances.
Microdermabrasion is an ideal dermatologic treatment for many different skin types and tones, even appropriate for the improvement of sensitive skin. During the procedure, tiny abrasive particles are directed to the skin, gently removing dull, dead cells. These cells are immediately suctioned from the surface by our hand held device. Immediately following treatment, the skin will look and feel smoother.
