There are very few things that are as enjoyable as spending a little bit of time in the sun. Unfortunately, many people are so excited to spend time in the sun that they don’t think about protecting themselves. As a result, they are left with sun-damaged skin. The question is, what steps can you take to reverse the sun damage? Topical creams are not going to help because the damage is deep down in your skin. Microdermabrasion is a treatment that has produced powerful results.
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that does not require surgery, nor does it use harsh chemicals. Instead, a specially designed device is used to exfoliate your skin. As a result, the damaged skin is removed and healthier skin is revealed. The entire process encourages the production of new skin cells. It forces your body to create more collagen and more elastin. These two substances are what your body naturally uses to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.
Microdermabrasion is perfect for individuals who have skin that has been tarnished by sun damage. It is also ideal for individuals who have skin that has coloration issues as a result of sun damage. In some cases, microdermabrasion can reverse some minor issues such as lines and wrinkles.
It is important to differentiate between microdermabrasion and dermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is not as involved, so it can be used on individuals regardless of their skin type or skin color. Since it is not as aggressive as dermabrasion, it does not have a lot of downtime. It’s perfect for individuals who have minor to medium sun damage, but who do not have a lot of time to recover after treatment.
Microdermabrasion works best on individuals who are overall healthy. To get the best results from the treatment, it is important that you understand what the treatment can do, as well as what the treatment cannot do.
