Every day there are new procedures and new trends in terms of aesthetic treatments. Microdermabrasion is a technique that has increased in popularity in recent years.
Perhaps you are new to the aesthetics world, and not familiar with this type of treatment, but want to update yourself with the most modern alternatives in aesthetic services for the skin. Here you will find everything you need to know about microdermabrasion exfoliation.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is an aesthetic exfoliation procedure that consists of a deep treatment of the skin to eliminate dead cells in its outermost layer. This treatment activates the skin's natural self-healing process, eliminates scars, and reduces wrinkles, giving it a new look and a much younger texture.
Uses of Microdermabrasion
The main concern of many people in the world today is to take care of their health in more natural ways, in times when global health is hanging on by a thin thread.
This has directly influenced the search for new treatments and aesthetic alternatives that allow us to maintain a balance between the ways of caring for our health and the ideal results.
In addition to being an aesthetic method mainly used in facial care, microdermabrasion applies to different parts of the body and helps improve the appearance of any area. It can be performed on areas such as the back and arms, as well as the neck and chest, and is an ideal treatment to reduce the density of certain types of scars.
It serves to activate and optimize skin cell renewal, which will make it a much more fertile ground for other products and care. In this way, the assimilation of other care products will be much more intense after this treatment.
Microdermabrasion guarantees a deep and respectful aesthetic treatment. Respectful as it's a non-invasive aesthetic procedure, and deep because it even serves to improve blood circulation in the deepest layers of the skin. This will make it much longer-lasting with improved elasticity.
Microdermabrasion delays the arrival of the dreaded wrinkles, eliminates the most superficial layers of the skin, and at the same time, results in a much less aggressive treatment than other exfoliation methods.

In addition to these three actions, there are two types of microdermabrasion processes most used today. Both methods, although very similar, differ from each other according to the material with which the exfoliator operates.
First, there is the oldest method, microdermabrasion based on aluminum oxide crystals. Secondly, the most modern method, microdermabrasion based on diamond tips. The two methods seek and achieve the same result, although the exposure time per session varies depending on the material. The most modern method with diamond tips ensures a faster treatment.
