What you need to know about microdermabrasion in Calgary, AB
If your skin has no open lesions and is free of inflammatory acne outbreaks, microdermabrasion may be recommended:
- To soften fine lines and wrinkles
- To brighten a tired, dull complexion
- As hyperpigmentation treatment for uneven skin tone, melasma, age spots, or freckles
- For acne scars treatment, as well as discoloration that appears when acne begins to clear
- As sun damage skin treatment
- To soften and smooth rough skin texture
Skin is cleansed. Then the clinician removes the top layer of skin with a microdermabrasion machine, a motorized handheld device with an abrasive tip. There is no pain, but you may feel a sanding sensation as the instrument is moved over skin. A pampering moisturizer is applied, and you are on your way.
The only downtime is social – skin may look pink or have slight swelling for a day or two. Can you wear makeup after microdermabrasion? That is a common question, which the clinician will answer during your consultation or before treatment. In most cases, makeup can be worn the next day.
Other key questions
Is microdermabrasion good for you? Yes. Skin is meant to exfoliate at a rapid rate. However, modern diet and lifestyle can inhibit the process. Microdermabrasion boosts blood flow, bringing an increased supply of nutrients and oxygen to superficial skin layers. This safe treatment can be scheduled as often as weekly to keep skin fresh and revitalized.
