Hyperpigmentation is a very common skin condition typified by sections of skin that grow darker in color. This normally harmless skin problem develops when an excess of melanin begins to be deposited in your skin. Melanin is the pigment that gives your skin and hair its color. This skin condition can be found among those with any skin type or skin color. A growing number of people are benefiting from a procedure called microdermabrasion for the treatment of their hyperpigmentation.
This is an advanced skin resurfacing procedure that involves the gentle polishing or exfoliation of the outer layer of skin. It may surprise you that your outer layer of skin is not actually made up of living skin tissue. Instead, it is made up of dead skin cells, oils, and cellular debris. This inorganic material can block the natural radiance of your skin. The treatment works by removing this dulling skin layer to restore your skin’s shine.
This treatment offers numerous benefits, including the advantage of immediate results that require zero downtime. It is able to enhance the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and spots and is effective for all colors and skin types.
It is important to understand that while microdermabrasion is an effective treatment, it is not appropriate for everyone. It cannot help with serious skin disorders like active rosacea, dermatitis, eczema, or deep acne. You will require multiple treatment sessions and regular maintenance to achieve maximum results.
You may make a good candidate for a microdermabrasion treatment if you want to brighten your skin or have acne scars, sun damage, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is also appropriate for those with clogged pores who wish to maintain clear, healthy skin.
In this form of treatment, we use a handpiece to spray very tiny crystals onto your skin. These abrasive particles will break up the molecular bonds holding together the outer skin layer. We then vacuum up the microscopic particles, along with the inorganic material that was hiding fresh skin underneath.
