Microdermabrasion is a painless, non-invasive, skin rejuvenating, low risk, and machine assisted skin exfoliating treatment. It is a simple, quick and painless cosmetic treatment. Microdermabrasion requires no needles or anesthesia and is not a laser. This treatment helps to gently exfoliate the surface layer of the skin using abrasion and suction which helps improve the appearance of the skin by reducing the fine lines, early sun damage, mild acne marks, however it cannot be used for deep acne scars or deep wrinkles. This treatment helps to gently remove ‘plaque’ and skin debris. Skin becomes noticeably smooth and absorbs moisture better. Though face is the most common area treated by microdermabrasion, any skin area including neck, chest, back and hands may be treated as well.
2. Chemical peels
Chemical peels can help improve the appearance of skin. A chemical solution is generally applied to the skin, which makes it ‘blister’ and finally peel off. The new skin that grows is usually smooth and less wrinkled than the old skin. This treatment is done for the face, neck or hands and can be used to –
- Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
- Treat wrinkles, damaged skin caused by sun and ageing
- Improve the appearance of mild scars
- Treat certain type of acne
- Improve the look and feel of skin
- Reduce spots, freckles and dark patches
Post a chemical peel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so it is recommended to wear sunscreen of SPF 30 and above daily. There is a low risk of scarring in certain areas of the face. Some people may be more likely to scar. If scarring does happen, it can usually be treated with good results. Basis your skin type, your dermatologist will help you determine the most appropriate type of chemical peel treatmentto opt for – Superficial peel, Medium peel, Deep peel. Before you proceed with a chemical peel treatment, your doctor will inform you on things to do and not to do to get the best results.
3. Acne Treatment
Acne is not associated with teenagers only, women in their 30s, 40s and 50s also suffer from acne. Typically acne is observed to appear on those areas of the skin that have the most oil glands such as – face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. Four main factors that cause acne are – oil production, dead skin cells, clogged pores and bacteria. Certain aspects that may aggravate acnes are – hormones, certain medications, diet and stress. Though having greasy foods, dirt accumulated on the skin or wearing cosmetics seem to be the most probable reasons for acne, it’s not true. Letting acne run its own course is a common myth, however without treatment dark spots and permanent scars can appear on the skin as acne clears. Acne treatment can help boost an individual’s self-esteem, for which many effective treatments are available. With the right guidance from your dermatologist, you can get rid of acne and scars, leaving you with a beautiful and radiant skin.
