Microdermabrasion: Uses, Procedures and Risks

by Ajaya Kashyap Cosmetic Surgery Clinic Delhi India

We all use so many beauty products to rejuvenate our skin and look ravishing. But sometimes all our efforts go in vain because no matter what we use, our skin tone doesn’t change. Say goodbye to those beauty products because now you can rejuvenate your skin with microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure used to gently exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells and renew overall skin tone and texture. The procedure also helps to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, acne scarring, and other skin-related conditions.

It’s a painless and low-risk skin treatment that can add beauty to your skin.

How Should You Prepare for the Consultation for Microdermabrasion?

During the consultation, you should be prepared to discuss your goals and expectations, medical conditions, allergies, medical treatments, previous surgeries, and current medications.

The surgeon will also ask many questions to evaluate your health and risk factors. Then the surgeon will discuss your microdermabrasion options, likely outcomes, and risks or potential complications.

Make sure that you ask all your queries to the surgeon and understand everything about the procedure.

Are there any Risks of Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a simple procedure, and it does not cause any side effect generally. Whatever discomfort you may experience after the procedure will go away quickly. This can include swelling and redness, which usually subsides within a few hours.  The skin becomes extra sensitive to sun exposure after the procedure. Make sure to apply a sunscreen before you step out in the sun.

Bruising can also occur after the procedure, and it may last for a few days.

How should you prepare for Microdermabrasion?

It’s a nonsurgical, simple procedure and doesn’t call for a lot of preparation. Your surgeon will ask you to avoid waxing, tanning creams, exfoliating creams, and sun exposure one week before treatment.

You will have to remove any makeup that you have applied and cleanse your face properly before the procedure.

How is the Procedure Done?

There are different ways to do microdermabrasion. One is crystal microdermabrasion which involves a hand-held device that streams tiny crystals across your skin, resulting in a gentle abrasion. The crystals and dead skin cells are then suctioned off.

Another type of procedure is diamond-tip microdermabrasion. In this, a diamond-tip handpiece is used to exfoliate dead cells in your skin. The handpiece then suctions them off immediately.

This procedure offers more flexibility in sensitive areas or on more sensitive skin.

Microdermabrasion is also sometimes combined with a chemical peel to increase the effect. The surgeon will apply a moisturiser with SPF to hydrate your skin.

What Can You Expect after the Procedure?

It is a simple, non-invasive procedure and you will be able to resume your daily activities immediately.

 After the procedure, you can expect immediate changes in your skin.  Microdermabrasion needs multiples sessions, and the number of sessions depends on your expectations as well as the sensitivity of your skin concerns.

After the procedure, you should stay hydrated and use gentle skin care products. Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun for a few weeks after the procedure. Use sunscreen before you step out in the sun.

The result from the procedure is long-lasting, depending on the number of treatments that you receive and the severity of your skin problems.

Your surgeon will design a plan for the number of sessions, and periodic maintenance treatments. Follow every advice given by your surgeon to recover quickly after the procedure.
