What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that involves exfoliating the skin. The method helps to remove the layers of dry, and dead skin cells. And it aims to help rejuvenate the skin to help give it that youthful glow.
Even though it is a great way to get your skin looking amazing, not a lot of people know about it. What’s more, the treatment isn’t designed for everyone. So, if you’re looking into microdermabrasion treatment, remember to give your dermatologist a call and clarify a few things beforehand. And while you have him on the phone, here are a few questions to ask:
Can I combine microdermabrasion with other skin treatments?
If you’re planning to get other treatments for your skin like RF treatments, or if you’ve recently had any injuries and are still using a cream for it, then it is best to ask your dermatologist if it is safe for you to get a treatment alongside microdermabrasion.
Additionally, you can take this opportunity to have your dermatologist explain to you how the procedure works and what you can expect from it.
Will there be discomfort during treatment?
Generally speaking, the microcrystals used in microdermabrasion are harmless. And with that said, most people who get the treatment don’t experience any discomfort. But if you’re still worried, you can ask the dermatologist if there will be any other type of discomfort or pain that you can expect to experience.
What’s more, you can visit your dermatologist for a skin check-up. They'll clarify if any of your allergies or your current diet will cause a negative reaction during the treatment.
Where can I do Microdermabrasion on my body?
Want to get microdermabrasion on a certain part of your body but are unsure if it is safe to do so? Because the treatment has the ability to rid you of stretch marks and wrinkles, you will be tempted to try out on your face or other body parts.
But before you do anything, and to avoid any injuries or any other regrets, take the time to ask your dermatologist if this treatment will be safe for you.
Is getting the treatment ideal with my current health condition?
When you have the sniffles and you still choose to get the treatment, will you face any consequences? Hopefully not. But of course, it never hurts to talk to a professional and ensure that you will be okay or if you need a few days to rest up before going to the spa.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to know more about skin treatment. In fact, it’s smarter to do your research to ensure you are safe, before diving headlong into something you may regret.
