Microdermabrasion Benefits And Effects On Your Skin

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure similar to sanding wood. However, the technique entails using tiny crystals. A special machine called microdermabrasion machine is used for spraying these fine crystals.
These crystals, when rubbed on the skin, peel away dirt and dead cells.
The mildly abrasive action results in increased flow of blood to the region, which in turn results in the skin being repaired and rejuvenated.You can read my earlier post on what microdermabrasion does here.
However, it is necessary to understand microdermabrasion benefits and effects, before opting for this procedure as it may not suit everybody and at times there may be simpler alternatives available.

Understanding The Mechanism Of Microdermabrasion

Basically, our skin consists of three layers, i.e., epidermis, dermis, and the subcutaneous tissue.
The epidermis is that part which is visible to us. The tissue contains fibroblasts, which are special cells, responsible for producing collagen as well as other fibers.
Collagen, in particular, is important for the skin as it forms a type of scaffolding that gives the skin its firmness.Similarly, fibroblasts produce both elastic and reticular fibers for that scaffolding.
The skin receives its share of oxygen, nutrients, and moisture from blood vessels, more specifically, capillaries. With age, this circulatory system starts failing, and dead cells on the epidermis compound the problem by becoming an obstruction for new fibroblasts fail to live the healthy life.
Dirt and grime on the skin also result in similar problems with the skin.
They prevent the skin from getting the required level of moisture and oxygen. Skin needs oxygen for healing as well as decreasing any free radicals in there.
Skin also gets damaged because of the sun’s ultraviolet rays.And this is why you need to understand what you should know about microdermabrasion, what it does and how it works.
Microdermabrasion’s main job is to remove any dead cells or dirt obstructing the fibroblasts. Improvement in circulation to the skin’s dermis layer by causing mild inflammation due to microdermabrasion is its secondary function.

Microdermabrasion Benefits And Effects

It removes dead cells or dirt giving fibroblasts and hair follicles a chance to grow freely, and in general, the skin breathes better;
It improves circulation in the skin which ensures healthy fibroblasts, and consequently improved production of collagen, elastic fibers, etc.;
It is a comparatively painless process for making the skin smooth and firm;
It does not cost as much as dermabrasion would cost because there are no major after-effects and professional dermatologist may not have to spend much time for this procedure
Time taken to recover from skin inflammation is much shorter.
There are few adverse reactions and side effects from this procedure that cause serious concern.
It is suitable for removing age spots and brown spots on the skin, apart from making the face brighter,fresher looking and younger with less wrinkles visible.
Effects Of Microdermabrasion
It improves skin’s firmness and smoothness, giving the skin a youthful appearance. This is because both dermis and
epidermis become thicker thanks to collagen and other proteins from fibroblasts;
It does not completely remove scars, nor is it suitable for removing, moles, birthmarks, burnt skin, or stretch
marks.Sorry to say this but if anyone tells you microdermabrasion will remove your stretch marks, they are not being honest or don`t know what they are talking about.
It removes age spots, brown spots, and in general removing dullness of the skin.
It does lead to some dryness of skin for a day or two but moisturizer and a good sunscreen are enough to combat that stretched feeling.
Though microdermabrasion is an affordable option and often suggested for removing aging signs, it does little to remove stretch marks.
Nevertheless, it does have many benefits and since it is suitable for every type of skin, many people find it to be an effective procedure for removing some of the aging signs.

As a man, I actually do like to take care of my skin, specially my face, I want the wrinkles to come as later as possible haha does this help preventing wrinkles? and also is this a unisex machine or just for women?

  2. Elora Jayne says:

    Great explanation! I definitely have a better understanding of the whole process now!

    Do you happen to know if there is a difference in the effectiveness and quality of the treatment between having it professionally done and doing it yourself at home with this machine?

    Is this better than using a microdermabraision cream or facewash?


    • The Beauty Doctors says:

      Hi Jayne,

      There is really no difference in having microdermabrasion professionally done or at home apart from the prize really. Salons will tell you otherwise which is understandable as they want to make money, but done at home or at the salon,the effectiveness is the same.

      Thanks for stopping by James, at home microdermabrasion devices are affordable and will save your wife a fortune in fighting wrinkles.

  4. I’ve tried so many microdermabrasion techniques, to no avail. First, I started with actually going to salons: didn’t change anything to my acne, for a complete year. Then I decided to stop wasting so much money on salon and do an at home system: I used the PMD for more than a year, and no change in my acne and the smoothness of my skin. Then I used a dermaroller: it was quite painful at first, but my skin got used to it. Unfortunately, no progress with that too. Do you think it’s worth it for me to actually try this Diamond Microdermabrasion?
