A Diamond-Tipped Wand Does The Job.
By Kath Wong | December 2, 2020
Your body produces new skin cells continuously day and night, and can shed up to 50,000 dead skin cells per minute. Shedding of dead skin cells is an important process for the skin to renew itself but sometimes it does not shed fully, leading to clogged pores, dry patches and other skin issues. This is where you can contribute your part to help the shedding process - by performing exfoliation on a regular basis, depending on the suitability for your skin.
How Often Should You Exfoliate Your Skin?
Exfoliation is a simple process where dead skin cells are removed from your skin surface by gently rubbing your facial wash or facial scrub that contain tiny, sand-like particles onto your skin. The goal of exfoliation is to restore soft and healthy skin by using gentle motion and products. The keyword here is 'gentle' - if redness and irritation are the results that you get, it certainly means that you are actually over-exfoliating your skin. In general, exfoliation can be done twice a week for those blessed with normal skin. But that might be too much for delicate or sensitive skin in which irritation can occur instead of providing full benefits to the skin. On the other hand, if your skin is oily, exfoliating more than twice a week is acceptable to cope with high buildup rate of dead skin cells.
At times, manual exfoliation is not satisfying. You still get clogged pores and dullness despite using the best products from the market. But the road to better skin is not at the dead end yet. Microdermabrasion can help you to achieve fresher facial appearance by sloughing off dead skin cells effectively.
All About Microdermabrasion and Its Benefits
In short, microdermabrasion is a non-invasive process of skin resurfacing by working on the topmost layer of your skin. After thorough cleansing procedure, a diamond-tipped wand begins to sweep slowly across your face area: cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. The process works like a sandpaper rubbed all over your face but it is a painless experience. It helps to remove dead skin cells on your skin and allows the renewal of skin to be optimized, and the next thing you know is your pores are no longer clogged with dirt, dullness is gone, and a new layer of fresher, smoother skin is revealed.
Although microdermabrasion does not offer dramatic results, some changes over time are noticeable, for instance, the increased production of collagen, a more even skin tone as well as reduced fine lines. The overall treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete and some swelling and redness might occur, but they will subside within a few hours. Your skin may be flaky and dry for a few days after the treatment but this can easily be taken care of by applying extra moisturizer.
How is Microdermabrasion Different From Other Similar Treatments?
How is microdermabrasion different from dermabrasion or chemical peels when these 3 treatments can all improve skin tone, texture and clarity effectively? The answer to this is microdermabrasion focuses on removing merely the superficial layer of dead skin cells instead of the whole topmost layer of your skin, which ensures a truly non-invasive treatment with maximum benefits.
