Microdermabrasion is cosmetic treatment meant to uplift aging skins by removing the dead cells of the skin. This harmless procedure is popular among all skin types and all ages. It takes 5- 16 sessions with a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon before the effects of microdermabrasion are clearly visible. Those who do not want to undergo invasive, time consuming and complicated skin treatment procedures such as deep chemical peels or laser treatment prefer microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion works only at the outermost layer of skin. According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons, microdermabrasion process can be of two types. One in which treatment is given via a hand-held device that sends minute crystals over the skins that are afterwards sucked up and the second type uses a diamond tipped wand. Both types of microdermabrasion procedures specifically focus on the removal of dead skin cells on the outermost surface of the skin through gentle exfoliation. The procedure is simply at the surface; skin is neither wounded nor scraped below the epidermis.
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that leaves your skin fresh without pain. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, during the procedure, the maximum you might feel is a mild stinging, vibration or scratching sort of feeling. The procedure does not require any anesthesia. Side effects may appear in the form of pink or swollen skin, however, they are only temporary and wither off within no time. In order to protect your skin, dermatologist may advice you soothing moisturizer and an effective and suitable sun screen.

Therefore, seeking the services of qualified medical professional is always a preferred option to avoid complications in the procedure and to benefit optimally from microdermabrasion.
