There is no denying of the fact that skin’s luster and youthful contours are the offshoots of regular renewal process of skin cells. When this process slows down, the skin loses luster and appears to be dull and dry. Different factors are involved in slowing down the epidermal cellular turnover; among others the significant ones include genetics, ageing, deficiency of minerals, hormonal imbalance and excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays of the sun. Over the years many exfoliation mediums have been evolved to remove the dead skin cells and enhance the production of collagens.
For the last three decades Microdermabrasion has been considered as one of the best skin resurfacing mediums which involves non-invasive cosmetic treatment. Unlike other chemical peels and plastic surgeries that use different types of acids and leave the skin red, microdermabrasion involves only aluminum oxide crystals which not only remove the dead cells efficiently but also cause no side effects. With microdermabrasion devices, aluminum oxide crystals weaken the dead epidermal cells which are consequently vacuumed up by another chamber. This process opens the blocked pores and makes the skin fresher and softer. In addition to it, the defined fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and acne become less pronounced.
Earlier on people have to visit dermatologists for microdermabrasion; however today a number of microdermabrasion kits available in markets have made it much easier to perform this non-invasive process at home. Generally, these kits come with aluminum oxide crystal cream, lotions, exfoliating wand, post-microdermabrasion moisturizer, and foam applicators. These kits are not very expensive and can be purchased at price ranging from $15 to $150. Of various Microdermabrasion home-kits, some famous include Nubrilliance, DDF Revolve Micro Polishing System, Age Sciences personal Micro-derm Tool Kit, DermaNew Microdermabrasion Facial Rejuvenation System, and Spa Girl PowerDerm Microdermabrasion System Kit.
When you do microdermabrasion at home, you remove dead skin cells, unclog skin pores, enhance collagen production, increase blood circulation, absorb more nutrients from lotions, and most importantly maintain youthful and healthy contours as well as over-all appearance. In addition to these benefits, this also lets you remove fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, pigmentation spots, scarring, and acne. While doing microdermabrasion at home, you need to test it on a small patch of your skin to ensure there are no allergic contents in the treatment.
Microdermabrasion at home is softer than the treatment at a professional’s clinic. However, one needs to follow some instructions given in each pack of kit. How to do microdermabrasion at home is a simple method. First of all, you need to cleanse your face with the help of facial cleanser and remove all the residues of makeup and lotions. Next, apply the aluminum oxide crystal cream on your face and massage it for about five to ten minutes. After that, clean your face with warm water and apply the post-microdermabrasion moisturizer. Now feel the difference with glowing skin and shining facial luster.
You can use this treatment method on all skin types and colors. Besides, you can apply make up creams and lotions soon after the treatment to get nutrients. And lastly, you can get back to your work without taking many precautious measures provided you minimize sun exposure for a period of one week after the treatment.
