What is Microdermabrasion Scar Removal Treatment?
Your skin is a seamless organ and one small scar can make a big difference in how you look. While there are many non-invasive treatment options to get rid of scars caused by acne, accidental damage, or surgery, microdermabrasion is one of the most effective ways to rejuvenate the skin and reduce the appearance of scars.
Microdermabrasion Scar Removal Treatment: How it Works on Scars?
The process of microdermabrasion has been proven to reduce and lessen the appearance of shallow or raised scars resulting from acne, accidental damage, or surgery. The process suits both the women and men irrespective of all skin types and colors. During the microdermabrasion scar removal treatment, tiny crystals are fired at a high speed in a controlled manner to remove the superficial layer of the skin. Then a vacuum attached by a tube to the handheld device sucks the dead skin cells and impurities away, revealing a smoother, clearer, and brighter skin. The irregular shape and size of the crystals help smooth out the ridged edges of the scars as well as the skin.
What Microdermabrasion can Do?
These tiny crystals are sometimes replaced by the diamond-tipped wand that is swiped across the skin to exfoliate the outer layer. Apart from reducing scars, microdermabrasion can effectively treat pigmentation, exfoliate clogged pores, reduce fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, age spots etc. It helps re-texturize the skin by smoothing the surface and the edges of the scars, lightening the surrounding area where superficial hyperpigmentation is visible.
After the Treatment
This machine-assisted skin exfoliating treatment is a simple and painless option with minimal risk and no downtime as compared to the other skin resurfacing methods such as dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, and chemical peeling. Individual results may vary. People with moderate to deep scars may need to undergo a number of sessions before noticing visible results. Each session lasts about 30 minutes. The treatment is usually done in a series of 5-7 sessions every 2-3 weeks. Once you start seeing the desired results, you can go for once a month.
As the skin remains sensitive after the treatment, you need to follow a skincare regimen suggested by your dermatologist. Your skin is especially vulnerable to sun damage at this time. Therefore, try avoiding sun exposure for at least a week and use a broad spectrum sunscreen before going out.
The procedure of microdermabrasion is safe. However, as with any cosmetic treatment, possible temporary side effects may include skin sensitivity, tightness, mild redness, and minor bruising. It should be noted that microdermabrasion only removes the superficial layer of the skin and works best on improving sun-damaged skin, light acne scars, fine lines, age spots, and superficial scarring. Therefore, combining chemical peels with microdermabrasion scar removal treatment can expedite the results to a considerable extent.
