When given a variety of skin rejuvenation options to choose from, the sheer number of choices can be confusing. Often confusing enough for those who are considering certain procedures, to actually avoid them altogether. Microdermabrasion is one of those intriguing skin rejuvenation procedures that people often wonder about but are unsure of.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

Using a tool to deliver a spray of micro-crystals aimed at close range to facial surfaces, an aesthetician removes the outermost layer of skin in order to reveal younger, healthier, more even-toned skin. The use of the microscopic crystals can be slightly uncomfortable for some, where others report that discomfort was non-existent to very minimal. The best candidates for microdermabrasion are those looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles, even out skin tone and lessen the look of mild acne scarring and sun spots.

Though microdermabrasion is a very effective skin rejuvenation procedure, users should be aware that results are not as dramatic as those experienced with chemical peels or laser treatments. Microdermabrasion results are optimal when the procedure is performed about once a month; depending on your particular skin issue and its seriousness. Side effects are rare with very little downtime as skin is left slightly red and irritated for about 24 hours.

To find out if microdermabrasion is right for you and your skin concerns, schedule a consultation with one of our skin experts at Skin Rejuvenation Clinic in Edina. We can help you clear up any confusion as to whether you’ll need this procedure on your path to your healthiest skin ever.
