Microdermabrasion Treatment for Wrinkles

Microdermabrasion

is gentler than dermabrasion and is used to treat wrinkles and fine lines. It is a non chemical and non incision process. Microcrystalline sprays are used to remove the dry and dead skin cells to reveal the healthy looking skin. This procedure takes very little time and hence is called

“lunch hour”

procedure.

You can start this treatment right after you observe those fine lines on your face. It just takes 30 minutes and repeated microdermabrasion is effective in treating fine lines. A hand held device is used in microdermabrasion. This device is a fine tube which sprays fine crystals of aluminium oxide on your skin.

Aluminium oxide

crystals provide abrasion or polishing to the skin. These crystals are non toxic and do not cause adverse skin reactions. This treatment also encourages the growth of collagen layers under the skin. People of all types of skins can under go microdermabrasion treatment. But this treatment cannot cure deep scars and severe acne.

The cost of microdermabrasion depends on the number of treatments the patient requires. How ever it may cost between 75$ to 200$. It is a no-pain treatment, in minute cases people complain experiencing itchiness and stinginess. This may be due to their previous health history. Usually after a microdermabrasion treatment skin becomes pink, which usually fades after few hours.

Microdermabrasion is not recomended to people suffering with

keratosis

(growth of keratin on the skin). People diagnosed with

lesions, diabetes, eczema, dermatitis, fragile capillaries, psoriasis and autoimmune disorders

are also discouraged from undergoing this treatment.
