Understanding Microdermabrasion, Is Microdermabrasion the Best Treatment?Featured PR

Microdermabrasion: A youthful rejuvenation and medical treatment
Shelton, CT, United States (pr4links.com) 08/11/2012
A useful article, "What is Microdermabrasion, When is It Better Than Other Skin Treatments?", reemphasized the ever-apparent pressures placed on adults to look like they just walked out of their teens and into their twenties. Makers of anti-aging products are bursting at the seams in cash these days, thanks to the growing demand of the public.

Thankfully, with the public outcry for a more cost-effective treatment came the development of microdermabrasion. While it has been around for years already, it has become increasingly popular, promising a healthy glow and better overall skin tone. The entire process of receiving microdermabrasion is fast and effective. Small, abrasive grains are literally used to lightly sand the outer layer of skin from the face, resulting in brighter, healthier skin.

Even though the process involves sanding, the sanding performed is very gentle in nature, and causes no immediate pain or long-term discomfort to the patient. It does cause a mild tingling sensation that most patients view as a positive experience. The procedure typically costs between $75 to $200, depending on the experience of the doctor or nurse performing the procedure and the extent of the patient's needs.

It usually takes around 30 to 60 minutes to complete the procedure. The procedure is so brief and has such minimal recovery that it is often referred to as the "lunch hour facial," meaning one could leave and return to work without any disruption being caused in their daily life.

Microdermabrasion doesn't just benefit adults. It has proven effective in teens suffering from mild cases of acne, by preventing the formation of new pimples and reducing overall oiliness of the skin. Progress has also been made in the reduction of melasma appearance in the epidermis, which causes hyperpigmentation, or discoloration.

Microdermabrasion may not be for everyone, or appropriate for certain skin ailments, but is a perfect pick-me-up for those looking a bit tired. It is available at the Rejuvenate Medical Spa, one of the leading medical microdermabrasion spas in CT. People interested in the procedure should contact the practice to learn if this procedure, or another, is appropriate for their personal circumstances.
