Microdermabrasion helps to regenerate and thicken collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. Collagen is a protein in your skin that’s abundant when younger and makes skin appear smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin. Microdermabrasion helps to polish off the dead skin cells and reveal a more younger healthful you underneath.
What To Do After Face Microdermabrasion Treatment
First, it's important to remember that your skin needs some time to recover. The top skin layers have just been removed and your face simply heal.
It is normal to see facial redness after each abrasion(the redness should fade in a few hours) and so is some itchiness and a mild sunburn sensation (which can last up to two days afterwards).
ITs best to avoid complications and speed up your skin's recovery by following these recomendations:
Cleanse your face after treatment with a wet cloth and rehydrating toner to remove any dead skin cells.
Once the skin has dried completely, apply a rich moisturizer; use for 4-6 days after to avoid excessive peeling.
Don't forget to use sunscreen every time you go out, microdermabasion increases photosensitivity.
Avoid staying in the sun for 7 days after microdermabasion to prevent UV rays from damaging your skin.
Facial Makeup After Micro Dermabrasion
In the first 24 hours don't wear any make-up. Avoid using any type of liquid or powder foundation (or any other type of cover up, for that matter) for the first 2-3 days after micro dermabrasion. Eye makeup and lipstick are ok.
What Is Best To Apply On Your Face After Micro Dermabrasion?
Some creams, gels and ointments can help relieve the tenderness or the burning sensation you get after microderm abrasion.
Copper-based lotions speed up skin recovery and are light enough to be used underneath liquid foundation.
Vitamin A, C and E in many brands of microdermabrasion cream increase skin elasticity and help the skin look fresh and toned.
What To Avoid After Micro Dermabrasion Facials?
Avoid any exfoliation or shaving after facial or body microderm abrasions:
Avoid exfoliation products and glycolic acid-based creams for 3 days after micro dermabration.
Avoid waxing for at least 30 days after microdermabreassion
What To Do About Persistent Skin Redness After Dermabrasion?
The red skin takes a few hours to return to normal after microdermabrasion. Give it a day to calm down. If the redness persists, see your dermatologist. If you notice any infection, long-lasting swelling, pain or color changes, see your doctor immediately.
