Myths About Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective exfoliation methods. It helps remove dead layers of skin by gently scraping away the dead skin cells. This is done using a hand-held mildly abrasive tool or a suction vacuum. This method is done by a trained skin care professional and is perfectly safe. This process yields excellent results improving the overall skin tone and texture of your skin. However, there are many myths about microdermabrasion which we are going to clear for you.

So, if you were anticipating getting a Microdermabrasion and weren’t sure if it was good for you. This is just the article for you that provides all the information you need. This will help you book an appointment for this treatment without any hesitation. As you already know what microdermabrasion is, these are the confusion that you might have regarding the treatment:

Microdermabrasion has a painful procedure.

Though the process might look painful to you, it doesn’t hurt at all. Most of the patients that we’ve had even find the procedure soothing and pleasant. The only thing you’ll feel during the process is mild scratching to your skin as the dead skin layer gets removed. This will leave your skin with a vibrating sensation similar to a massage.

The sessions are time-consuming.

A typical Microdermabrasion session takes about 20-30 minutes to complete. It is similar to a haircut and should be perfect even if you have a busy schedule. You can have the appointment booked with us during your workdays during the lunch break if possible. Or take a quick session before work.

It is not appropriate for your skin type.

Is it because of the skin type that you are worried that microdermabrasion isn’t fit for you? If so, stop worrying and visit us to have the treatment. Microdermabrasion doesn’t require you to have a particular type of skin for it to show positive results. It suits skins of all types; however, if you have sensitive skin, you can ask the dermatologist if the treatment is proper.

The skin requires a lot of rest after the treatment.

This is partially right. However, you can have microdermabrasion during your workdays. You will be perfectly able to continue your work after the treatment. However, you might have to follow specific instructions provided by the esthetician after the procedure. However, you can get back to your work with a pink hue to your skin which will get back to normal within 24 hours of the treatment.

The results take too long to show:

This is one of the most misleading myths of all. Though your skin may be too sensitive immediately after the process, and you may not see the results so apparently during the first few hours after the process. But once your skin gets back to normal within a day. You’ll feel the softness and the smoothness that the process has brought to your skin. You’ll be able to see for yourself that the treatment has brightened your skin and left an even tone to your skin.

The results are similar to that of a scrub.

Though scrubs are also suitable for exfoliation while at home, it doesn’t compare to the microdermabrasion process, the microdermabrasion not only makes your skin soft and smooth, it also helps reduce fine lines, open pores and acne marks on your face. On top of that, it helps remove dead cells and rejuvenate the skin by helping the turnover of the skin cells.
