Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that involves the use of a tool, such as a diamond tip, to exfoliate and remove the superficial layer of dry,dead skin cells without scratching or damaging it. The purpose of the treatment is to normalize the healthy skin function that will help skin to appear brighter and smoother in a shorter time. It can also help improve the skin appearance by reducing fine lines, early sun damage, and mild acne marks. Pores may appear smaller and skin may feel softer to the touch. Recommended to be performed on a regular basis. Microdermabrasion is commonly performed on the face.It is not useful for deep acne scars or deep wrinkles.
Does Microdermabrasion Help With Collagen Production?
Because microdermabrasion increases blood flow to your skin, it also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. The suction function helps to oxygenate the tissues and get the skin to be more active. The underlying muscles help with this, as they can really help blood circulate. Microdermabrasion also interrupts the specific patterns skin stays in (leading to wrinkles). Because the diamond tip adds pressure to the skin, the skin will loosen its traditional form and possibly experience an uptick in cellular activity to match the external stimuli.
