Microdermabrasion is the process of performing dermabrasion in the micro scale. Therefore, a concrete understanding of dermabrasion can provide a better understanding of microdermabrasion.

As the name suggests, dermabrasion is a technique that is performed by a dermatologist. However, the professional must have a clinical expert in this procedure. The process involves the wearing away of the required skin layers. Usually, the middle and upper skin layers are subjected to this process. Devices like diamond wheel, wire brush, sterilized sandpaper etc are employed for this process. Microdermabrasion is relatively a latest and sophisticated procedure, which is now done by medical assistants, estheticians etc.

The microdermabrasion is classified into 2 types. They are:

Crystal microdermabrasion

This procedure aims to rectify the age related imperfections in the skin. The outer skin layers are exfoliated through this procedure. A wide range of skin issues can be solved using this technique. The results of this technique to cure wrinkles, ageing lines, pigmentation, blackheads, open sores etc are immediate and very much visible.

In this procedure, a crystal handset is placed on the layers of the skin. Through this device, microscopic aluminium oxide crystals flow into the skin surface. Since these abrasive crystals are emitted at a high rate, they facilitate the proper removal of the epidermal layer of the skin. As soon as these crystals finish performing the required functions, they are sucked out through a separate apparatus. This process further helps in the exfoliation of the outer layer of the epidermis, known as the stratum corneum.

Diamond microdermabrasion

This is regarded as a latest method in the dermabrasion techniques. The procedure largely helps in several factors like regeneration of the natural cells through a method known as exfoliation. Through this method, the deeper skin layers can be reached and treated effectively. The deeper layers are those that have no wrinkles and other kinds of exposure. Since this is a less aggressive procedure, the patient can safely and confidently attend this procedure.

Since the results of this treatment are immediate, the patient can satisfactorily go to home without much post-operative care.
