Crystal-free microdermabrasion uses a diamond file to remove your outermost layer of skin called the epidermis. These top layers are constantly regenerating themselves. When the new cells are created, the older, dead cells are pushed up and off the body.
Removing the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells helps your skin to appear younger and healthier. Microdermabrasion not only removes these dry, dead skin cells, but also supports the production of new skin cells that have a higher level of collagen and elastin. This procedure does not contain chemicals and it is non-invasive.
There are not generally too many risks involved with this procedure as long as the provider is qualified. Sometimes, a person may have a slight skin irritation after the procedure. There are always risks involved during any procedure; therefore, risks are considered depending on your skin and health history.
There are many benefits to microdermabrasion; however, the benefits to you will depend on your individual skin and health history. Microdermabrasion can reduce or even eliminate fine facial lines and wrinkles. It can improve the appearance of acne scars and any other light scarring on your skin.
Microdermabrasion uses non-allergenic crystals, which is helpful for those who have sensitive skin.
