Everything You Need To Know About Microdermabrasion

Your skin routine is essential. The way you wash and moisturize your face will set the tone of your skin for a lifetime. Most keep a cleanser, mask, toner, and moisturizer in their stash but don’t have an item to remove the dead skin from their face. Your skin sheds itself, and the best way to rid of what’s sitting on top of your face is Microdermabrasion In Miami.


What is Microdermabrasion:

Microdermabrasion is a minimally non-invasive treatment that renews your skin’s texture. It can help improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring and more. The treatment exfoliates the skin making it extremely soft and smooth. During Microdermabrasion In Miami, tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin remove the outer layer. The technique is less abrasive than dermabrasion, making it non-invasive. Since the treatment removes the skin from the top layer, revealing new and undamaged skin, it leaves the skin looking softer and brighter.

The treatment works in two parts. First, a machine uses micro crystals to gently exfoliate your skin and remove the dead skin cells from the surface, simultaneously, a vacuum sucks the unwanted skin cells and debris away revealing fresh new skin.

Is Microdermabrasion safe?

Microdermabrasion is just as safe as exfoliating manually at home. It works well with all skin types, but those with drier skin should moisturize after. Although it can treat all skin types, it does not affect deeper problems such as acne scars and stretch marks. Since microdermabrasion is meant to remove the top layer of skin, deeper marks may not be treated.

How often should you exfoliate?

Microdermabrasion can be done as often as you like. Some patients receive treatment as frequent as weekly, and some opt to go every eight weeks. It mainly depends on the skin’s tolerance and the desired result you’re going for. It’s best to start weekly, then adjust to your regimen as needed.


Does Microdermabrasion hurt?

A Microdermabrasion in Miami treatment should not hurt. The procedure is minimally invasive allowing you to have little downtime and no pain. You may feel a bit uncomfortable during the treatment, and your skin may feel a bit tight shortly after, but it should not be painful. If you do experience pain during this treatment, notify your technician.

What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion?

Pore Health and Size

Microdermabrasion unclogs pores and removes dirt and debris. Along with cleansing, it also reduces the size of your pores. Small pores are commonly a trait the beauty community raves about, and microdermabrasion could be your key to success. Most are born with a specific pore size, but many external factors can enlarge them. Poor hygiene and inflammation are the top two reasons why pores enlarge. Microdermabrasion helps clear blockage and reduce inflammation and improve your overall natural skin hygiene.

Circulation and product efficacy

The microdermabrasion process can improve blood and lymphatic circulation within the skin. In all, it can improve the health of your skin overall. With more blood flow, nutrients are supplied quicker to the cells. This improves the cell processes and enhances the skin and improves elasticity. By removing the dead skin, your usual skincare products can work better. Since your pores will be free of dirt and debris, it will enhance the absorption of skincare products. If you’re treating any skin conditions like scars and acne, your skin will be 50% more receptive to the product.
