Microcurrent treatments vs. Microdermabrasion treatments is a decision that many consumers are faced with as they make the decision of which procedure holds the most benefits to improve the appearance, texture and tone of their skin. There are many treatments available, here is an overview of these two treatments which can assist you in the decision making process of facial procedures.
What is Microcurrent treatment? Microcurrent treatments use small electrical pulses to promote collagen production in the skin and create the appearance of tighter skin. The muscles and tissues deep within the skin are stimulated to enhance the production of collagen. After one treatment you can experience tighter appearing skin with the appearance of lifted eyebrows and skin that has a decreased sagging appearance. Microcurrent treatments are often short-term and must be used repeatedly to see long term effects. There is no damage to the skin during Microcurrent treatments, as opposed to other methods which try to achieve the same results such as facelifts and laser rejuvenation of the skin.
What is Microdermabrasion? Microdermabrasion is often referred to as microderm as patients and doctors familiar with the procedure. Each of these different types of Microdermabrasion procedures contribute to removing the first layer of the skin which may have been susceptible to damage. The superficial layer of the skin is removed to create a youthful appearance which is similar to the Microcurrent treatments. Crystals are used in combination with abrasive textures which are used to remove the dead skin cells from the top layer, increasing the overall appearance and texture of the skin while improving the appearance of the complexion.
What are the costs of the two types of skin treatments? The cost of Microdermabrasion can range from $75.00 to $350.00 for each treatment depending on the type of Microdermabrasion being completed, the tools that are used to complete the treatment and the office that the treatment is being completed at. Microcurrent treatments range in price from $150.00 to $350.00 and can be completed at a local spa or dermatologistÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s office.
Where is the damage in your skin? Is your damage superficial on the top of the skin, or does the damage lies in the cells underneath the skin? Depending on where you wish to see results will determine the type of treatment that you ultimately choose. A consultation can be available from the spa to determine which treatment will yield the best results for you. This consultation can be followed by scheduling the treatment that you feel best for the problem.Ã‚Â
