Wha are the benefits of Microdermabrasion Treatments Benefits and Risk?


What is Microdermabrasion and how does it work?

Microdermabrasion (my-kroh-der-mah-BRAY-shun), is a form of mechanical machine exfoliation, originated in Europe. Some of the first machines entered the U.S. market around 1999. Today, many microdermabrasion models are available for both the esthetician’s and physician’s use.

These machines are utilized in many skincare clinics, spas, and medical offices. The microdermabrasion machine is a powerful electronic vacuum.

Microdermabrasion is achieved by spraying high-grade microcrystals, composed of corundum (kah-RUN-dum) powder or aluminum dioxide, across the skin’s surface through a handpiece. Crystals can also be used manually without the machine-the process is considered gentler on the skin.

Other machines have hard applicators, such as diamond tips, applied without crystals.


Microdermabrasion Benefits

Microdermabrasion can be used to diminish the following conditions: sun damage pigmentation open a.nd closed comedones, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and coarsely textured skin. The vacuum mechanism stimulates cell metabolism. Those who cannot tolerate acids may be candidates for microderm treatment.

The difference between AHA peels and microdermabrasion is that peels are chemical and penetrate into the epidermis. The peel product and its penetration into the skin have many benefits. Microdermabrasion is a chemical method of exfoliation.

It exfoliates the epidermis more effectively than a 30% peel does, but the benefit of the chemical products are not produced. For example, acids penetrate into the skin and stimulate cell mitosis and the cell turnover rate more than microdermabrasion.

The vacuum used in microdermabrasion does stimulate cell metabolism and circulation.

Generally, you can think of microdermabrasion as a more effective tool for surface exfoliation and AHA peels as more effective below the surface.


Microdermabrasion Risk/Cautions

Technique plays a vital role in creating a positive outcome with the microdermabrasion machine. Proper use of the handpiece, rate of crystal flow, and vacuum setting all contribute to a successful treatment.

Your esthetician should not use a microdermabrasion machine so aggressively that you feel uncomfortable.

Once the skin shows erythema or redness, this is considered the stopping point for the procedure.

A series of treatment that incorporates complementary products, along with a complete home-care program, makes the difference in obtaining the best results. Vitamins and antioxidants are even more effective after exfoliation procedures.

Your esthetician will analyze your skin and recommend the best program to help give you the best result.


Improper use of Microdermabrasion can actually cause hypopigmentation and hyperpigmentation.

It can also lead to sensitivity and other problems. any strong exfoliation procedure requires sun abstinence and daily sunscreen. Microdermabrasion is not recommended for sensitive or couperous skin, rosacea, or for those with a predisposition to pigmentation problems.

Reading a manual is not enough! You want a trusted expert who is trained and certified to perform your microderm treatment.


Microderm treatments are not DIY projects

You could end up cause more harm than good to your skin.




Chemical peels have a large number of benefits, some that can be noticed, and some that subtly occur under the surface of the skin. For example:

  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Controlled oil production and fewer breakouts
  • Diminished discoloration and more even skin tone
  • Reduced inflammatory response
  • Increased cell turnover process
  • Overall brightened skin tone
  • Softer, smoother skin


Question about your recent Peel Treatment:

Of course, you should definitely text me, if you have any questions before coming in for your first/next peel treatment. Lastly, please stop all retinol use at least 5 days prior to your peel treatment. I hope you’ve enjoyed this Customized Chemical Peel Difference blog article.
