What Is Microdermabrasion Skin Resurfacing?

There are many different cosmetic treatments that can help create this effect, and one that is gaining popularity is microdermabrasion. This is any cosmetic process that uses very light scraping to take off the surface layer of dried, old, and damaged skin to allow smooth and fresh skin underneath to shine through.

Microdermabrasion skin resurfacing actually comes in many forms and although the description sounds kind of intense or over the top with “tiny glass crystals sandblasting the skin” but in truth it isn’t nearly as intense a procedure as that description seems to indicate. Often this treatment is paired with a chemical peel or followed up with a facial that helps soothe and refresh the new skin.

This combination isn’t necessary per se, however many providers find it is a great combination treatment that gets the most out of both.

What You Can Expect
These treatments need to be thorough and the process does take a little bit of time. On average it takes 45 to 60 minutes depending on the exact method used, the amount of area that needs to be covered, and if there are any follow up facials or other treatments that are given in conjunction.

There might be minor stinging, the feeling of a little bit of heat from the friction process and this can last for a few hours after the initial treatment. This is actually pretty normal and red skin might follow for a few days afterwards however after that time you will notice clearly improved skin both in color, smooth texture, and youthful overall appearance.

This combination creates a very good look that many individuals appreciate. While some people have moved on to cosmetic laser surgery to attempt to get the same effect, and there are those that prefer it, there’s something about the traditional old school method that really works for many patients.

In Conclusion
When it comes to getting the smooth skin look you want, there are plenty of different ways to get there. While some people prefer to go cosmetic and just cover up the problems instead of treating them, and others choose to go with another treatment, it’s hard to argue with the benefits that this type of skin treatment brings.
