What Is the Aim of Medical Microdermabrasion?
Patients obtain medical microdermabrasion for a variety of reason. One of the most common reasons is anti-ageing, but patients also obtain it to treat blemishes and irregularities such as scars, blackheads. In some cases, the treatment can also be obtained to provide the patient with a cleansing treatment.
During a medical microdermabrasion, the cosmetic surgeon will use a device with a diamond tip; this is used to remove dead skin cells and cleanse the pores at the same time. As a result, the skin is left smooth and radiant.
What Are the Benefits of Medical Microdermabrasion?
Medical microdermabrasion is accompanied by several benefits. Firstly, most patients will experience the results of the treatment immediately and there is usually no downtime connected to the treatment.
Another major benefit of medical microdermabrasion is that this type of treatment can be customised for the needs of the individual. It enables the cosmetic surgeon to tackle specific problems, so many patients can take advantage of this procedure for a variety of reasons.
Is Medical Microdermabrasion Painful?
Most of our patients do not experience any pain during medical microdermabrasion. Of course, patients can experience some level of discomfort; this is usually a light suction and a scratching feeling when the diamond tip is applied on the skin. Some of our patients even reported they find the treatment relaxing, so a medical microdermabrasion will only cause a minimal amount of discomfort for some patients.
