You can opt for a skin polishing treatment if you want your skin to become smoother, smoother, and brighter. The most common types of skin exfoliation are microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Microdermabrasion is an aesthetic surgery that improves uneven skin, fine lines, and age spots. There are kits available at home to perform the process yourself. However, it is always better to consult a dermatologist since your kit will not be as effective as a professional’s machine. Chemical peeling minimizes the appearance of different spots or scars present on the skin through the use of certain chemicals.
How is the treatment done?
Microdermabrasion softens and cleanses the skin by exfoliating and unclogging pores. A small device will be used to pop crystals on your skin. These crystals will polish the surface of your skin before being removed, by a vacuum tube, along with dead skin cells. It allows more radiant and fresh skin to resurface. Chemical peeling involves the application of high potency acids in the skin. The application of these acids eliminates surface scars and decreases the appearance of deeper scars. It improves the appearance of the skin. There are three types of chemical peels. The most commonly used is a deep exfoliation that uses phenol and penetrates deeper into the skin. It is recommended to treat spots, wrinkles, or scars. Superficial exfoliation improves the discoloration associated with rough or dry skin caused by sun damage. The average exfoliation is mainly used for anti-aging treatments due to the glycolic acid present in this exfoliation. Be sure to consult an experienced dermatologist and check if you have skin allergies. The dermatologist will consider the composition of your skin before applying a strong ointment or gel during the treatment you choose.
Are there any side effects?
You may experience redness in your skin for some time but it goes away in a few hours. Do not get skin polishing done on the day you have to attend an event or occasion. It is always wise to get it done a day or two in advance.
The results of the treatment are permanent if you take good care of your skin. You must avoid direct sunlight as much as you can. Keep your skin away from dirt and pollution by cleaning it from time to time.
