The Benefits of MicrodermabrasionSoftflex
What is Microdermabrasion?
The microdermabrasion process was developed to treat acne and minimize acne scarring, as well as to minimize pox marks, wrinkles, age spots, and other scarring. During the procedure, a dermatologist uses a small, handheld tool to exfoliate your skin, revealing the newer, smoother layer of skin beneath. It is a safe and painless treatment with minimal side effects.
Microdermabrasion – Safe, Painless, & Quick Treatment
Because the microdermabrasion procedure is non-invasive, it is very safe. Only the top layer of skin is affected, and it is simply exfoliated very gently. You will see results immediately, with minimal side effects or downtime. The most common side effect reported by patients is tenderness or redness of the skin for about one day after the procedure. The treatment itself is painless, with most people reporting only the feeling of vibration, like a massage. The procedure takes between 20 minutes and one hour.
Microdermabrasion – Effective for All Skin Types
Microdermabrasion can be performed on any skin type and complexion. It provides benefits to those with oily skin, blemishes, acne, dry skin, and combination skin. Unlike dermabrasion, the procedure is effective for any complexion, whether fairer or darker, without causing scarring or skin discoloration.
The Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Superior to Other Treatments
Microdermabrasion is less expensive and just as effective as other procedures for the treatment of wrinkles, sunspots, acne, and scarring. The procedure requires a much smaller time commitment and is less painful than laser skin treatments or chemical peels. It does not require the use of painful chemicals or lasers. The procedure can cost as little as $100 per treatment, and even just one treatment can leave your skin looking smoother, younger, and refreshed. You only need one treatment per month to maintain the procedure’s effects.
