The primary, underlying cause of acne is a build-up of debris within the pores. Excess sebum, dirt, oils and other organic matter can create the perfect breeding ground for acne-causing bacteria. While washing and exfoliating the face are both important parts of maintaining clear, healthy skin, special treatments may be needed to thoroughly cleanse blocked pores and prevent future breakouts. As such, microdermabrasion may be the perfect solution for those who suffer from blackheads, whiteheads and cystic acne.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is one of several non-invasive cosmetic procedures that is designed to cause controlled damage at the surface layers of the skin. When triggered, the body is surprisingly adept at healing itself. During a microdermabrasion treatment, dead skin cells and other elements that are clogging the pores are removed. These treatments can even be performed at specific depths to remove the topmost layers of skin which may be dull, dry and exceedingly damaged. Once this has been accomplished, the body will expedite its production of both collagen and new skin cells. In time, this will produce a bright, healthy and virtually blemish-free complexion.
The Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Even the very best skin care products cannot produce optimal results if they’re being applied to layers of dead or damaged skin. When the pores are blocked, moisturizers, toning agents and nutrient-dense creams cannot deliver their benefits to the deepest layers of the dermis. Microdermabrasion can make your skin infinitely more responsive to the skin care system that you’re currently using. As new, healthy skin cells are manufactured to replace old, damaged ones, you’ll also notice a significant reduction in dark spots, sunspots, enlarged pores, moderate acne scars, acne, fine lines and more. This is one of the safest and easiest ways to dramatically enhance your complexion.

Microdermabrasion is a lot like the exfoliation methods that people routinely use on their own at home. When performed by a professional, however, this process is significantly more intensive and the results are much more dramatic. Depending on the type and severity of your cosmetic concerns, it may take a series of treatments to reach your aesthetic goals.
