What is Microdermabrasion and Hydrodermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently exfoliate your skin, removing the thicker and uneven outer layer that can cause dullness.
Hydrodermabrasion is a type of microdermabrasion technology that uses an aqueous solution and oxygen to exfoliate your skin. This treatment is the most effective way for serums to be absorbed into the skin. At Meeting Point Health, we use Cytopeel hydrodermabrasion by Emage Medical, the most effective dermal infusion technology on the market. By removing the most superficial layer of skin, both microdermabrasion and hydrodermabrasion reduce fine lines and wrinkles by promoting your skin cells to regenerate faster. Hydrodermabrasion promotes collagen production and increases blood flow to treatment areas which stimulates healing.
What Microdermabrasion and Hydrodermabrasion Treats
Hydrodermabrasion and Microdermabrasion treat a variety of skin conditions. These two cosmetic treatments beautify your skin by removing flaky dead skin cells, dirt, and pore-clogging oils. Some of the conditions treated by hydrodermabrasion and microdermabrasion include:
- Dry, dehydrated skin
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
The benefits of Hydrodermabrasion and Microdermabrasion are numerous. By exfoliating the outermost skin layer your face essentially regrows healthier skin. Fine lines and wrinkles, blackheads, acne, congested pores, and blemishes become reduced and lessen in appearance. Further treatments boost the benefits of hydrodermabrasion and microdermabrasion.
How Long Do Microdermabrasion and Hydrodermabrasion Results Last?
The results from these two procedures can vary in length depending on the refresh rate of a person’s facial skin. Generally, microdermabrasion and hydrodermabrasion results do not last for more than 30 days (our skin normally refreshes within a 30-day period). Most people get these procedures at least once per month in order to keep their youthful, glowing look.
How to Prepare For Your Appointment
Before receiving your treatments, you will want to prepare your skin for the best results.
If you’ve taken Tretinoin to treat acne, you’ll need to wait at least six months before undergoing treatment as these procedures carry an increased risk of scarring. Your doctor will also determine beforehand if you need to use a topical exfoliant to make the procedure more effective.
Other things to avoid in the week before treatment include smoking, prolonged sun exposure, and NSAIDs (Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Advil, etc.). In the three days prior to your appointment, discontinue using topical medications that contain alpha-hydroxy acid, retinoid, benzoyl peroxide, and salicylic acid. These products can leave the skin sensitive, leading to increased discomfort during the procedure.
Inform your doctor if you have a history of fever blisters or cold sores as microdermabrasion can potentially lead to an outbreak. Your doctor can prescribe an antiviral medication beforehand to minimize your risk.
What to Expect Before the Procedure
When you arrive at a Meeting Point Health facility, our team of cosmetic and lifestyle experts will assess your skin, share simple instructions for the procedure, and provide a comfortable room where the procedure will take place. If you have any questions or concerns please let us know beforehand. Meeting Point wants to ensure that our patients leave our facility happy and more confident in their skin.
How Does Microdermabrasion and Hydrodermabrasion Boost Collagen?
Yes, exfoliation is necessary for healthy skin cells, which are constantly multiplying and regenerating. Dead skin cells work as a barrier to new cell growth which eventually leads to a dull complexion. Microdermabrasion and hydrodermabrasion remove this barrier by exfoliating the skin.
Who is a good candidate for Microdermabrasion and Hydrodermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion and hydrodermabrasion are ideal treatments for all skin types and especially for those with problematic skin, including acne, scarring, and pigmentation. These treatments will effectively help in reducing scars, sun damage, pore size, and blemish marks.
