In our fast-paced society, and especially in our sunny climate, many clients are looking for a way to rejuvenate damaged skin. A variety of skin care methods are available including skin care programs, chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing. Microdermabrasion is a
skin care service used extensively in Europe and FDA approved for the treatment of conditions relating to sun-damaged and aging skin, such as uneven surface texture, fine lines, hyper-pigmentation (dark sun spots) .
The advantage of microdermabrasion over traditional “resurfacing” methods (chemical peels and laser resurfacing) is that there is minimal discomfort, minimal “downtime” after the procedure, and it is suitable for most clients. The microdermabrasion skin care involves application and removal by suction of aluminum oxide crystals, which gently abrade the skin. This suction action also provides a “lymphatic drainage massage” the sum of which allows for exfoliating and stimulating blood flow to the skin. The process of removal of the superficial skin allows the skin to renew itself more readily thereby providing a healthier, rejuvenated appearance. For the best results, microdermabrasion is offered as a series of treatments 1-2 weeks apart to significantly enhance the effectiveness of our skin care system and not as a stand-alone procedure.
Microdermabrasion helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. Collagen is a protein in your skin that’s abundant when you’re a child and makes skin appear taut and smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin.
Dermatologists also use microdermabrasion to improve the results gained from using anti-aging products and skin-bleaching products. Microdermabrasion allows these products to penetrate the skin more easily.

It is good for people who follow an inactive lifestyle and suffer from the problem of swelling, puffiness, etc. It has also been reported that this type of massage is an effective way of treating people with dysfunctional respiratory problems and also can be alternative to other medical treatments of cellulite. Individuals who have gone through accidents are also recommended to get a lymphatic drainage massage done as it helps in the healing process of scar tissues, sprains, fractures as well as torn ligaments. Skin problems like acne and illnesses including arthritis, sinusitis can also be completely treated with this massage. It is also said to be beneficial for women who face problems during pregnancy like sore nipples, fissures, engorgement, etc. as well as those who experience poor circulation and water retention issues.

Though the lymphatic drainage massage is unlikely to have any side effects, there are certain risk factors associated with this therapy. Individuals who suffer from malignant tumors, major heart problems, acute inflammation, thrombosis, etc. should avoid getting this massage done as it may show a negative effect on them. In the same way, women should not indulge in this therapy when they are menstruating. On the other hand, patients with diseases like cancer, kidney problems, diabetes, epilepsy, asthma, etc. should also consult their health practitioner before fixing an appointment with the lymphatic drainage massage therapy. As you now know the benefits of this massage therapy, I do hope that you would think about getting it done. However, it is extremely crucial to keep the necessary precautions in mind to avoid complications in the future.
