Microdermabrasion is one of the more recent skin-care techniques to have crossed over from Hollywood to the mainstream. It's being advanced as an "instant facelift" -- an effective alternative to costlier and more invasive procedures like plastic surgery, chemical peels and Botox injections. Recently, more and more men are trying it, instead of pursuing cosmetic surgery.

So what exactly is microdermabrasion, what does it promise and what effect does it actually have on your face? Lets look at the science behind microdermabrasion, see what a treatment is like and find out what it does to your skin.

The Basics
Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of skin.  It's usually done to the face, chest, neck, arms or hands. Before we can understand how microdermabrasion does what it does, it's important to understand how skin works.

Your skin is made up of two main layers, the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis is the layer closest to the outside world. It's a set of dead skin cells on top of another layer of cells that are in the process of maturing. The topmost layer is called the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum mostly acts as a barrier between the outside world and the lower skin layers.  It keeps all but the smallest molecules from getting through. 

When you put lotions or creams on your skin, some of the moisture passes through the stratum corneum, but not all of it. This layer is home to many minor skin imperfections like fine wrinkle lines and blemishes.

All of the action in microdermabrasion takes place at the level of the stratum corneum. Since it only really targets the epidermis (and not the dermis), it is more accurate to call it micro-epi-dermabrasion.  Affecting deeper layers of skin would be painful and harmful, and it would risk permanently embedding the tiny grains into the skin. 

Microdermabrasion Effects
It is designed that if you remove or break up the stratum corneum, the body interprets that as a mild injury and rushes to replace the lost skin cells with new and healthy ones.  In the first hour after treatment, this causes mild edema (swelling) and erythema (redness). Depending on the individual, these side effects can last anywhere from an hour to two days.  We like to call it a healthy glow.

This process has a few beneficial effects.  With the stratum corneum gone, the skin's surface is improved. The healing process brings with it newer skin cells that look and feel smoother. Some of the skin's visible imperfections, like sun damage, blemishes and fine lines, are removed.  Also, without the stratum corneum acting as a barrier, medicinal creams and lotions are more effective because more of their active ingredients and moisture can find their way down to the lower layers of skin. As microdermabrasion temporarily removes some moisture from the skin, it is always followed by the application of moisturizing creams.

Early studies suggest that repeated microdermabrasion treatment at regular intervals may influence the way the lower layers of skin grow, as well, removing deeper blemishes over time.  Some evidence seems to indicate that the rapid loss of skin moisture may be what triggers the lower skin layers to work overtime in speeding healthy cells up to the surface.

Professional Microdermabrasion
Our Skin Care Specialists use a specialized tool for the procedure.  The tool shoots a stream of tiny crystals, and collects the leftover dead skin cells and used crystals.

The vacuum action of the machine has four main functions:

  • It pulls and raises a small section of skin to work on.
  • It creates mild swelling and brings some of the impurities to the surface.
  • It shoots a stream of crystals across the targeted skin patch.
  • It collects the used crystals and dead skin for disposal. 

The suction process in these devices is called Venturi suction.  We use a two circuit venturi -  one to shoot the crystals out and another to collect them., which is more powerful and more effective than others who use a one circuit venturi.

Our Skin Care Specialist steadily moves the tool over the target area, applying even and steady pressure to remove the stratum corneum without affecting the lower skin layers.  A standard session usually consists of multiple passes with the tool.  In most cases, the Client is then asked to apply specialized lotions and creams to the affected area between sessions.  This rehydrates the area and assists in promoting healthier new skin.

Depending on your skin condition and your goals, several sessions spaced throughout the year may be recommended for maximum effectiveness.
