In addition to seeing the wrinkles on your face as you get older, it is also likely that you are going to see age spots. These are discolorations on your skin that appear as you get older. Some have described them as freckles or discolorations that are larger than freckles. One thing is true of age spots: no one wants them. Everyone wants skin that is smooth, blemish-free and as youthful-looking as possible. Age spots are the exact opposite of all of those things. Thankfully, there are different treatments that can effectively get rid of age spots or at least reduce them. Microdermabrasion is one such treatment.
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that is used to exfoliate the top layers of your skin. When you come to our med spa in San Antonio for this treatment, we are going to pass a special device over your face that introduces your skin to tiny sanding particles. This exfoliates the top layers of skin. As the device is passed over your skin, it also has a part that works as a vacuum. This means that all of the tiny particles are sucked up. Also, dead skin, oil and other things are sucked up as well. You are left with smoother, younger-looking skin.
There are a couple of reasons why microdermabrasion works for reducing age spots. First, it gets rid of the top layers of skin. This means that some of the colored skin is going to be removed during treatment. However, the thing that really affects the skin is the fact that microdermabrasion encourages the skin to produce more collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. All of these things work together to give your skin a more youthful appearance. It helps you to have a more even skin tone.
For the most part, all individuals qualify for microdermabrasion. As long as you are in relatively good health with realistic expectations, you can likely benefit from this treatment.
In addition to helping you reduce age spots on your face, microdermabrasion is going to provide you with other benefits. You are going to see that you no longer have as many fine lines. Your skin is going to be exfoliated and encouraged to produce more beneficial substances. This means that in the days and weeks following treatment, your skin is going to look younger. It is going to look refreshed, and you are going to have fewer blemishes.
