What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is primarily used to exfoliate your skin. Unlike the various exfoliation products available for home use, this method actually yields impressive results. It begins by using a unique instrument called the DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing System. Essentially, this is a want with diamond chips in the tip, and it passes over your face. The chips will clear away any impurities from the top layer of your skin, leaving a fresh new layer underneath.
It’s called skin resurfacing as you’re literally getting rid of the dull layer at the top. This is full of dead skin cells, dirt, and many other imperfections. The entire treatment is done without any surgery or incisions – and you don’t need anesthetic either.
Is There Recovery Time?
The nature of this non-invasive treatment means there is hardly any recovery time to worry about. No surgery is performed, so there are no incisions that need to heal. Some people are happy to walk out of our clinic and get on with the rest of their day. However, you may opt to take the day off work as your skin does appear red and irritated. It can sting slightly, but most candidates don’t suffer from any pain afterward.
Effectively, the downtime is mainly social. If you’re comfortable getting on with your life, then nothing is stopping you. At most, you will need the rest of the day off work, then you can go back to normal the day after.
