The Different Types Of Microderma Treatments Available

Microderma or Microdermabrasion is a treatment designed to resurface the skin, rejuvenating it and removing any evidence of visible blemishes that are the result of acne, stretch marks or slight scarring. Microderma in Chicago is also a treatment that is useful in reducing the effects of aging such as wrinkles. The entire process takes place over time, the result is a marked improvement in the patient’s complexion.

The top layer of skin is known as the “stratum corneum,” it is this skin layer that is exfoliated by blasting it with minute particles of sand or crystals. As well as blasting the skin, it may also be polished using a diamond tipped piece of machinery. This blasting and polishing eventually removes an extremely thin layer of the stratum corneum to simply erode away, new skin then grows back in its place. Microderma in Chicago can be used anywhere on the body except the eyelids, the skin on the eyelids is far thinner than on the rest of the body and as such is easily damaged.

When compared to dermabrasion, a very invasive surfacing treatment, Microderma is considerably milder and almost painless. Even a patient that is intolerant of pain will find that they can undergo Microderma treatments without the need for any topical anesthetic. The only possible effect is a feeling of slight windburn and perhaps some reddening of the area.

The cosmetic surgeon may work on the patient for up to two hours depending on the extent of the treatment, even at that the patient will fully recover in a day or two. Dermabrasion on the other hand is far harsher and after treatment it can easily take several weeks to recover completely. It is the speed of the procedure, the fact that it is virtually painless and is relatively inexpensive that makes it the most sought after way of resurfacing the skin.

Prior to undertaking Microderma treatments it is always best to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon or dermatologist. As noted, the procedure is safe and there has never been any incident where the skin was damaged, but, like all things, it never hurts to err on the side of caution. Most plastic surgeons recommend that Microderma in Chicago be left until the patient has reached their late teens or later, people any younger than that are still undergoing changes in their hormones and it is best to refrain from skin resurfacing.

Microderma in Chicago is a painless way to remove acne scars, stretch marks and other surface blemishes. You are invited to schedule a consultation with The Michael Horn Center for Cosmetic Surgery.
