Microdermabrasion (Ultrasonic Diamond Peel) is a powerful mechanical exfoliation that works by removing the uppermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, chest and hands. It is one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments in existence. The procedure will soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, help smooth coarsely textured skin, and decrease scarring and large pores with no downtime.
Research shows that microdermabrasion is one of the top five nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in the United States. Clinical studies have shown consistent beneficial effects to damaged skin, including improved elasticity and vibrancy in the thick layer of skin below the outer layer, or epidermis. If you’re considering microdermabrasion treatments in Birmingham, AL, you’ve found your fix with Cahaba Dermatology.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a progressive, non-invasive treatment that removes the top layer of the skin or dead skin cells. It promotes the production of new cells in the deepest layer of the dermis, cleans pores, and aids in balancing oil production. All of these effects, alongside stimulating collagen networking to further even out skin tone and texture, make this procedure one of the best treatments for healing your skin and making it feel brand new.
What Is the Process for Microdermabrasion?
First, the area is cleansed thoroughly to remove excess oils from the skin. A wand is then manually passed over the skin on the face to gently abrade the surface with diamond tips, while a vacuum thoroughly clears the skin of impurities. The procedure lasts about 30 minutes. Afterwards, a soothing toner is applied to the face, followed by a hydrating cream or mask and sunblock.
What Are the Results of Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion treatments result in rejuvenation of aged skin and improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, age spots or hyperpigmentation, black heads and small acne scars for all skin types. After a treatment, you can expect your skin to have a pink glow that usually lasts from 1-6 hours. If you experience any discomfort or sensitivity, it should lift within that 1-6 hour window following the procedure.
Which Body Parts Can Be Treated?
Although the face and neck are most common, we can treat skin on the decollate (chest), arms, and back. While microdermabrasion on the chest, arms, and back will improve the underlying health and overall appearance of the skin, it is less effective at removing the appearance of lines and wrinkles in these areas.
