Microdermabrasion At Home: Your Complete Guide
Oh, to have perfect skin! No matter what your lifestyle looks like, chances are that you wish you had more time to dedicate to making your skin happy and healthy, getting rid of unwanted bumps and inflammation, and achieving a skin glow that you can feel good about. Don’t we all!
However, you also probably lead a very busy life that doesn’t afford you the time to set aside an hour or more a day to really perfect your look naturally.
For some people, keeping up perfect skin involves expensive trips to the dermatologist’s office every month, trying innovative new skincare techniques, and walking out with $300 worth of prescriptions for new creams, serums, and pills that are supposed to revolutionize your skin. This just isn’t feasible for most people!
So what if there was a way to take a part of your dermatologist visit home with you and give yourself an equal treatment from the comfort of your own space in your own bathroom? Well, that’s exactly what we wanted to tell you! Let’s explore the concept of microdermabrasion treatment at home, learn what it is and why it’s beneficial and safe, and decide whether or not it fits into your routine and lifestyle.
What Is Microdermabrasion, Anyway?
We don’t know about you, but every time we look at a word with six syllables, we just wonder if it’s even worth our time. The last thing you need to spend your valuable time doing is taking an hour to google all the various medical terms that make up the marketing of my favorite skincare products. Thankfully, we’re here to explain to you exactly what you’re getting yourself into before you decide to spend your time and money experimenting.
To really define microdermabrasion, we have to take a couple of seconds and use some really scientific words and phrases, but it’ll all be worth it in the end. Here goes!
Microdermabrasion therapy is essentially a minimally invasive procedure designed to resurface the very top of your skin, exfoliate your pores, remove dead skin cells, reduce inflammation, and minimize acne breakouts. If any of that sounds good to you, then we’re just getting started!
Here’s the science-y bit: during the process of microdermabrasion, highly abrasive materials (usually crystals of some kind) are propelled against the skin in a pattern under the control of a handheld vacuum system. This process basically creates tiny abrasions on the surface of the skin that remove a layer of skin called the “stratum corneum” layer (In normal people terms, that just means the top layer of skin).
When these abrasions are created, they stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, causing new skin to grow in the epidermis layer. This new skin is stronger, younger, more vibrant, and less likely to result in anything unhealthy.
Microdermabrasion is quickly becoming the new thing in skincare and is performed by dermatologists and plastic surgeons all over the world as a way to combat some of the most common skin conditions. The benefits you can look for include a high level of effectiveness, the simplicity of the procedure combined with its minimally invasive nature, low risk to the patient, and an incredibly rapid recovery process.
So Why Choose Microdermabrasion, Really?
Okay, we get it. That was an absolute mouthful, and you probably aren’t any more confident about choosing microdermabrasion than you were a few minutes ago. Let’s break it down in a way that might be more convenient to understand.
Basically, your skin goes through a lot in your everyday life. From the weather outside to the skincare products you use to the amount of effort you put into conquering everything that the world tries to throw at you, it’s exhausting, and sometimes it shows. That’s okay, and everyone struggles with imperfections from time to time.
Microdermabrasion is a way to combat that by stimulating the natural healing process of your body, jumpstarting it to a point where your skin can heal faster than it would on its own. Essentially, instead of your skin taking a timeout, it’s trial by fire!
When you choose microdermabrasion, what you’re doing is stimulating new skin growth by removing old, dead, damaged skin growth and causing tiny little abrasive cuts on the very surface of your skin that allow the skin to heal itself. The human body is remarkable and can resurface itself incredibly effectively, given the opportunity.
So all you’re doing is finding one of the most effective ways of giving your skin a new life! We don’t know about you, but that sounds absolutely fantastic to us.
