There are a multitude of irritations and imperfections that can plague your skin. Everything from age spots to stretch marks to large pores and pigment irregularities reduce a woman’s and man’s youthful appearance. But these things don’t reduce you. You are still the intelligent, vibrant, exciting, and hard working person you always were. So the question on many people’s minds is – How can I make my outside match my inside? - Microdermabrasion is one way to answer that question in a non-invasive, non-surgical, non-painful way. After all, this incredible treatment isn’t just for movie stars anymore. In fact, the Microdermabrasion Edgewater and Hoboken women and men love is available right here in New Jersey.
What exactly is Microdermabrasion? What does the process entail?
Known as the “instant exfoliator,” microdermabrasion is a safe and effective way to renew the surface of your skin for a younger, more vibrant look. Of all dermatological procedures, microdermabrasion is the least invasive, one of the most affordable, and has the advantage of requiring no anesthesia. Best of all, the treatment is painless and results in very few, if any side effects. What it does do is restore younger, healthier looking skin that glows with vitality. With a series of treatments, Microdermabrasion can be equally as effective as some surgical procedures such as laser skin resurfacing and dermal abrasion, as well as chemical peels.
The microdermabrasion process requires a compressor and pump that combine an extremely gentle abrasive process with a suction action. Aluminum oxide microcrystals are passed high-speed through a vacuum tube which is gently applied to your skin. This ensures that the outer skin layer of dead cells is thoroughly removed and polishes the underlying healthy skin. Keep in mind that this layer is just 10 to 15 microns thick. It is so thin that it can’t be seen with the naked eye, but the effect of its removal is that of restoring a vibrancy and glow that your skin may not have known for years. The procedure takes less than an hour and can be performed on the face, neck, chest, back, and hands with minimal to no downtime.
