By removing the outer layer of the skin, you are hastening the cell turnover and helps remove dead skin that may dull the complexion. It improves the overall texture of the skin, removes bumps and debris that may clog the pores, and it helps make pores appear smaller.
Exfoliating the dead skin also helps fade post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and stretch marks.
Sun-damaged skin may also be reversed by microdermabrasion. Age spots or liver spots may also be improved or lightened although this is not an overnight process. It may take 4 months or more to see an improvement.
Along with exfoliation, the suction component of microdermabrasion will also improve blood circulation thus boosting collagen production. It will help with the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as plumping the skin. It gives you a more glowing complexion too.
Microdermabrasion can also be used to maximize the benefits of anti-aging products or any skincare topicals. By removing the dead skin, the active ingredients in skin care products will penetrate the skin better. You will see faster results and you get better value for your money.
