You might have heard about facial microdermabrasion. It is one of the most widely performed, as well as most talked about, dermatology treatments right now. Many claim that this procedure can give you healthier, dramatically younger-looking skin in less than an hour.

But what are the facts?

What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation process that removes the topmost layer of dead skin from the surface of your face.

This treatment is fast compared to many other, similar treatments. In fact, you can be in and out of the dermatologist's office in about thirty minutes to an hour. There's no surgery involved, and very little (if any) pain.

There's also no real recovery time. So you won't have to wear bandages, or anything of that nature, after the procedure.

What Are the Benefits?

Facial microdermabrasion has many benefits, the biggest being healthier, younger-looking skin. Some of these benefits include:

* Minimizing find lines and wrinkles.
* Cleaning out clogged pores.

* Minimizing enlarged pores.
* Minimizing mild acne scars.
* Giving the skin a healthy.
* Smoothing rough, coarse skin.
* Evening out some uneven pigmentation.

What Are the Risks?

There are very few risks involved in having a microdermabrasion treatment. In fact, one of the reasons the procedure has become so popular is that, compared to some other procedures, it is safe. There is little chance of suffering any side effects.

While this procedure can be safe for almost anyone, people who have very sensitive skin probably shouldn't have this treatment, because it might be too harsh for their delicate skin. And people with certain skin conditions need to tell the aesthetician or dermatologist about it beforehand. Microdermabrasion may not be recommended for those with certain skin conditions.

To avoid any risks, make sure the person giving you this treatment knows what they are doing. If you are having it done by a dermatologist, ask how long they've been doing the procedure. If you are having it done by an aesthetician at a local spa or salon, ask what kind of training they have had.
