Microdermabrasion in Chicago, IL
Microdermabrasion (often referred to as Microderm) is a cosmetic procedure (mechanical exfoliation) in which the stratum corneum (dead outermost surface of the skin) is partially or completely removed by light abrasion using tiny crystals that serve as gentle but effective exfoliants. It is used to remove sun-damaged skin and to remove or lessen scars and dark spots (hyperpigmentation). To achieve optimal results, it is recommended you get a series of treatments and use high-tech anti-aging skin care products.
Why Choose Microdermabrasion?
The procedure is not painful and requires no anesthetic. Microdermabrasion can be used medically for scar removal when the scar is raised above the surrounding skin, but is less effective with sunken scars such as stretch marks. It offers a variety of benefits, including the following:
- It leaves skin with a fresher, more glowing look.
- Skin is left feeling softer and smoother, improving the application of cosmetics.
- Diminishes sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and coarse textured skin.
- It makes it easy for high-tech skin care products to actually penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.
While dermabrasion is generally only considered safe for use on fair skin, microdermabrasion is especially versatile because it can be safely used on all skin types and colors. As compared to dermabrasion, this procedure results in less down time; in fact, skin typically recovers completely within 24 hours.
Following your microdermabrasion appointment at Natural Beauty Med Spa, a high-quality moisturizer should be used, as the skin will feel slightly tight and dry for about 24 hours. During this time, it is important that you not apply certain types of makeup so as not to irritate the skin as it heals. A sunscreen should also be used to protect the skin from harmful UV rays, particularly in the two to three days following treatment. Our team will happily provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results and comfort.
