Microdermabrasion for Skin Brightening

Microdermabrasion is a highly defined technique that smoothes and refines the skin erasing skin flaws such as light wrinkles, scarring from acne, blotchiness, hypertrophic scars, post acne scars, pigmentation and sun damage. It helps eliminate enlarged and blocked pores and blackheads and leaves the skin feeling and looking fresh and soft. Microdermabrasion was first introduced in Italy in the early 1990s.

At Karishma Cosmetic Laser Centre expert doctors perform microdermabrasion using a vacuum sealed system and very fine sterile microscopic aluminum oxide crystals to “sandblast” the skin. A hand piece that rotates over the area to be treated continually discards and replaces the crystals, while the suction motion exfoliates the skin. As the crystals come into contact with the skin, rough patches are smoothed out and the top layer of skin cells is exfoliated and swept away with the suction nozzle. Full face treatment takes about 30 minutes which involves 15 minutes actual working time with the machine.

At Karishma Cosmetic Laser Centre microdermabrasion is followed by a whitening mask that gives the skin a smooth finish and a firmer look.

What can you expect after the microdermabrasion procedure at Karishma Cosmetic Laser Centre.

After one treatment, the skin feels smoother, and is glowing and radiant. After several treatments, pigmentation and fine lines are reduced. The specific treatment required depends on the skin problem and individual circumstances.

Is microdermabrasion only used on the face?

Apart from the face, microdermabrasion works effectively on other regions too.

Is there any age limit for the microdermabrasion procedure?

It is recommended for people with age pigmentation spots, acne scars and fine lines or for people who want to keep their skin looking fresh and young. Some conditions are not suitable for microdermabrasion. Deep scarring cannot be resolved by microdermabrasion.

When can one start using makeup after a microdermabrasion procedure?

The speed and recovery time for this procedure is so short that it is often called “the lunchtime peel’. A microdermabrasion procedure can be easily fit into an hour-long lunch break. You can wear make-up straight after the treatment, but it is better to keep the skin clear. The skin will turn pink immediately after the treatment, but this colour will fade within a few hours.

Is it painful to have microdermabrasion done on the face? How does it feel?

The feeling is similar to having a mini-vacuum on your skin, but it is totally painless. Depending on the strength of the treatment being performed, microdermabrasion can be quite relaxing.

How long does the effect of microdermabrasion last?

The results of this procedure are often subtle improvements in texture and the appearance of refreshed-looking skin. If you are taking the microdermabrasion treatment only to enhance the glow on your face, then the effect will last for atleast 2 weeks. If you are seeking solutions for pigmentation, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, then you will require multiple sittings and would also need to use sunscreen to maintain the effect after the treatment.
