When it comes to cosmetic treatments to make you look younger and healthier, you know there are an endless amount of options out there. It’s hard to watch television, flip through a magazine or walk down the street without hearing about the latest cosmetic procedure designed to help you look like a better version of your youthful self.
Not all new treatments are helpful though, and in some cases, it’s the tried-and-true ones that are really worth spending your hard-earned money on. That’s definitely the case with microdermabrasion – a treatment you’ve almost certainly heard of before.
Microdermabrasion Skin Rejuvenation Basics
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that’s performed to help rejuvenate the skin. During the process, small, rough grains are used to buff away the very top portion of the skin, revealing healthy, glowing-looking skin underneath. Typically, this procedure is performed on the face and neck, though it can be done on the chest, arms, back and hands if desired.
The reasons people seek this type of treatment can vary, but lessening the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dull-looking skin are at the top of the list for most people. Both damage from the sun and blemishes on the top layer of the skin also generally look much better after treatment.
In addition, many people use this treatment to remove thick patches of skin, large pores and hyperpigmentation. In some cases, acne can also be helped through microdermabrasion since the skin will be able to better absorb topical treatments once surface debris is removed.
While there are very few side effects from this treatment, mostly because the procedure doesn’t involve chemicals, injections or any type of numbing, some people do notice a bit of swelling and redness immediately following treatment. For most people though, this swelling and redness will fade before the day is over, leaving them with overall healthier, more radiant-looking skin.

Another benefit that Thermage® offers is their Lips by Thermage® product, which is one of the newest additions to the Face by Thermage® suite of services. This, similarly to Eyes by Thermage®, is a non-invasive procedure that helps to smooth out and tighten the skin around the lips to provide fuller, more defined features. This product is used for cellulite too. Those who go under the single treatment procedure will be done in right around 30 minutes and you’ll immediately notice your lips are more plump and prominent. Furthermore, you can apply lipstick right away.
