Cocoon’s Diamond Microdermabrasion is a perfect solution for removing dead skin cells, smoothing wrinkles, treating pimples and acne and smoothing out skin surface. This Micro scrubbing technology uses ultrasonic waves to shake off dead skin cells. Thanks to the heat and vibration created by the ultrasonic waves, the face gets massaged and creams and ampoules can thus absorb into the skin. Since it is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments today, now we list everything you need to know about microdermabrasion.
1. The benefits of microdermabrasion
The biggest advantage of microdermabrasion is that it is a non-invasive procedure and there is no discomfort and downtime during and after the treatment. Furthermore, it is suitable for all ages and can treat several skin problems. Besides minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, it fixes discolouration and hyper-pigmentation. It eases skin congestion, reduce blemishes and age spots and helps skin achieve a much brighter, younger look. On top of these, it reduces the size of pores by sucking out all the dirt, and is a good option for lymphatic drainage that reduces under-eye circles.
2. Who can get microdermabrasion?
Just like about Botox®, there are several myths about microdermabrasion, for instance that it is not suitable for darker, olive skin. To dispel this myth, now we make it clear that microdermabrasion is actually great for all shades of skin, even of all ages – from very young to absolutely mature. In addition to all the benefits we mentioned above, this is also a huge advantage of the treatment.
3. Does it hurt?
Among other myths, people also have a theory that microdermabrasion is a painful process. However, in fact, it does not hurt at all – even crystal-based techniques feel only a little scratchy depending on the strength of crystals, but that is also far from pain. Most patients find it an absolutely relaxing, releasing pastime.
4. Is microdermabrasion good for getting rid of acne scars?
For certain kind of acne scars, microdermabrasion is a helpful solution, since it softens acne scars by removing the top layer of dead skins. In this way, cell turnover gets improved and some conditions, like scars can hence renew and repair. Additionally, cosmetic products can absorb into the skin more easily and work more effectively.
5. Is microdermabrasion good for getting rid of wrinkles?
While the most common reason of wrinkles are sun damage and the repetitive movement of the face, microdermabrasion is not suitable for treating wrinkles. Although, the appearance of wrinkles can soften temporarily due to the skin renewing effect of the treatment, they are still definitely there.
6. How often is microdermabrasion needed?
In case you have bad skin conditions you are trying to treat with microdermabrasion, you should repeat the procedure in every four-six weeks to achieve effective results. Insofar as you just enjoy the process and are having it for fun, eight-ten weeks is enough to repeat.
7. Can it be combined with other treatment?
Luckily, in order to reach as perfect results as possible, microdermabrasion can be combined with other Cocoon Medical Spa treatments.
