Microdermabrasion for Wrinkles / Fine Lines
WHAT CAUSES WRINKLES / FINE LINES?
When you begin to age, one of the effects is that your skin will start to develop folds and creases, which will lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. This occurs due to your skin no longer being elastic because of a lack of collagen, a substance it needs to repair itself. Skin will no longer snap back into place, while wrinkles and fine lines that form become permanent in nature.
HOW IT WORKS
Some people have called microdermabrasion an instant facelift, and it is widely accepted as a more effective method compared to other procedures, which may be more expensive and invasive. It uses tiny grains to help exfoliate the surface of the skin, helping to eliminate dead skin cells and brings a fresh layer of skin to the surface. This method does not affect deeper layer of skin as there is a potential risk of grains becoming embedded.
During the consultation session, your doctor will help to outline a treatment area. The tiny crystal grains will be aimed at this, exfoliating the dead skin cells on the surface. You will not need any anaesthetic as the procedure is not as painful as regular dermabrasion.
In fact, studies conducted have shown that microdermabrasion on a regular basis may even trigger your skin to become more efficient when producing new skin cells. This results in skin that is healthier on the surface, which may also alleviate other deep blemishes gradually over a period of time.
No downtime is required following treatment, and you may resume your daily activities as per usual. Do note that your skin will be reddish or pink over the next 24 hours, with a sensation similar to that of a mild sunburn. Apply moisturiser and avoid make-up for the next 24 hours, while also staying away from sun exposure over the next few days.
Your doctor will recommend a suitable number of treatment sessions for the best results, but this will depend on the condition of your skin as well as your ideal outcome. The treatments are spaced apart accordingly, with a gradual improvement noticeable after each treatment session. Your skin should look more and more radiant and healthy with time.
