Microdermabrasion is an highly popular skin treatment for a variety of different conditions. Unlike many of its predecessors, microdermabrasion is able to treat a wide range of problems of the skin painlessly, quickly and without post-treatment downtime. Microdermabrasion treatment is commonly used to treat the following skin ailments:
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Stretch marks
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Sun damaged skin
- Uneven skin texture
- Rough skin texture
- Minimizing skin pore size
- Rejuvenating skin tone
One of the biggest advantages that microdermabrasion has over alternative skin treatments is that a microdermabrasion patient can return to normal daily activities immediately after receiving treatment. Many other skin treatments used for the same conditions involve post-treatment complications and require missed work or other activities. This in another reason why microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment for people desiring improved skin without disrupting their daily routines.
Microdermabrasion treatment is an evolved method of exfoliation. Exfoliation is the process of removing the utmost superficial layer of skin, which is ordinarily composed of dead skin cells that the body is a bit too slow at removing naturally.
Everyone has dead skin cells on the top layer of body and facial skin. The body is continuously in the process of replacing these dead cells through the production of new skin cells. The treatment ramps up this natural process by removing a higher number of dead skin cells in a shorter time period. This encourages the faster production of more fresh skin cells which in turn leads to fresher and more healthy looking skin. If the treatment is repeated several times the continual regeneration of fresh skin offers even more sterling results. Reduced lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and scars are just some of the benefits of microdermabrasion Yonkers. The process non-invasive, painless and there is no need for pain killers or anesthesia of any sort.
In order to experience the best results, we want our patients to go into treatment with the knowledge that between four and twelve treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results. Since the process only affects the outer layer of skin, treatment will have little or no effect on skin conditions existing at deeper levels of the skin. Deeply pitted acne scars and certain stretch marks may also be poor candidates for microdermabrasion Yonkers. Results of microdermabrasion tend to last a long time but are not permanent. Once results are obtained from completing an initial series of treatments, a periodical maintenance treatment every 3 months is recommended in order to keep your skin looking great.
