What is Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive “skin rejuvenating” technique employed to help improve the texture and appearance of the skin.
Microdermabrasion is one of the category of treatments such as botulinum toxin (Botox®), dermal fillers and superficial chemical peels where the treatment session is short, with few side effects and virtually no time off work. They also do not require any surgery.
Microdermabrasion was discovered in the U.S.A. and, in 2011, just under 500,000 treatments were performed in America, a rise of 10.8% on 2010 figures. These statistics come from the American Society For Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), and they make microdermabrasion the fourth most popular cosmetic procedure in that country.
Various types of microdermabrasion machines have started to be used in the U.K. in the last couple of years, with many becoming available in beauty salons.
If you are considering microdermabrasion, the following information will give you a basic understanding of the procedure. It can't answer all your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient and the practitioner. Please ask a practitioner about anything you don't understand.
Microdermabrasion as Acne Treatment
Acne sufferers can see quality results with Microdermabrasion treatments because of the procedure's ability to unclog pores and clear away dirt, oil, and dead skin. This removes much of acne's damage while also allowing the skin to heal more quickly. Furthermore, when dead skin cells are removed, acne-causing bacteria cannot survive as easily. While every patient's situation is unique, most people experience obvious, posituve changes in their skin's tone and texture after after just one Microderm session, and a noticeable reduction in skin imperfections in as little as two sessions.

Length of Microdermabrasion Results
The duration of your Microdermabrasion results should be fairly long lasting, however, it depends on the severity of the skin damage and the number of treatments received. While you may require up to 2 treatments per month initially; with time many, people require only one treatment a month as a part of a consistent skin care routine.

Microdermabrasion Recovery Time
There is no recovery time from Microdermabrasion; you can expect to resume your normal activities following your treatment. Microdermabrasion is a great procedure to undergo during your lunch hour.
