Just two years ago, I had beautiful and smooth skin. It was a few months ago, when I noticed a deterioration in the smoothness and the glow of my skin. I am just in my late twenties, not too old to have large pores and bad skin! This is when I consulted one of my old friends working in a cosmetic surgery clinic.
She told me about microdermabrasion. This is a light, non-invasive cosmetic procedure to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin called epidermis. This procedure may be performed in-office by a professional, trained in this procedure. This procedure uses two things, an exfoliating material like crystals or diamond flakes, and a machine for suction of the exfoliated skin.
There are also some home micro-derma kits available. These are basically scrubs to exfoliate the skin. They are less costly, but I chose the professional microdermabrasion at my friend’s clinic. My friend showed me the special Oxy Derm machine. She told that this provides a natural alternative to traditional treatments, and the buffing crystals are natural organic grains – not infused with chemicals.
Here is worth mentioning that this should not be confused with dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is an invasive procedure, only performed by a dermatologist or plastic surgeon in a professional medical setting. Dermabrasion is controlled deeper abrasion of the upper to mid layers of the skin with a variety of strong abrasive devices. These include diamond wheel, brush, sterilized sandpaper, or other mechanical means. There are certain situations when you need something more than a microdermabrasion, but nowadays, lasers are more appropriate for such needs. They produce more predictable results with the ability to stimulate collagen, a skin building fiber, to stimulate the production of healthier skin.
