Your face is what you show to the world. It is the feature that is most responsible for your identity. For this reason, it is understandable that people are keenly interested in steps they can take to protect and improve the appearance of their face.
This can be a challenge because every day our face must withstand an onslaught from natural elements. It is constantly exposed to the sun, cold, rain and precipitation. Pollution and other contaminants in the air take their toll on your skin. Dirt and debris can become embedded in your pores and can lead to acne outbreaks.
Dermabrasion is a treatment that is designed to protect your face. It can undo some of the damage that exposure to these elements has on your skin. It can address things like acne scars, unwanted pigmentation and fine lines.
Dermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure. It does not require the use of chemicals, and there are no radio waves or other forms of energy used during the procedure. The only thing that it uses is micro-crystals. These crystals are applied to the outermost layer of your skin. They remove all of the dry and dead skin cells that cover your face and make you look older. Once the procedure is done, you are left with healthier-looking skin.
The effects of dermabrasion are twofold. There is what you see immediately after the procedure, which is the younger, more vibrant skin, and there is what comes in the weeks and months after the procedure, which is the production of new, healthier skin cells.
Dermabrasion is designed to simply address issues that are affecting the outermost layer of your skin. This means that once the procedure is done, you are not going to have weeks or months of downtime. In fact, you will be able to go back to your regular daily activities.
You will be the perfect candidate for dermabrasion if you have fine lines or wrinkles, age spots, uneven pigmentation, clogged pores or minor scars that you want to address. Dermabrasion has even helped patients who are dealing with rosacea and acne.
The ideal candidate for this procedure is an adult who is healthy. It is a person who has facial imperfections, but they are minor. The ideal candidate is also a person who understands what the procedure does and has realistic expectations about what to expect from the procedure.
