Microdermabrasion

Doctor Ivan Peev tries the procedure on his own skin and tells you about it from the first person.

Many of you may be familiar with the term Microdermabrasion, but the hard-to-pronounce word confuses some people. In fact, behind this term lies a very easy, quick and non-invasive skin rejuvenation and refreshing procedure that is extremely popular among our patients. In this case, speed also influenced my choice, and since I don’t have much time, I decided to start with it our new column “Through the eyes of the patient”, in which I or other doctors / patients will tell you about various procedures in detail, which will surely will be interesting to you.

The procedure itself is not new and has a 40-year history, during which time it has established itself with its popularity and patient satisfaction.

Доктор Иван Пеев пробва процедурата на собствената си кожа и ви разказва за нея от първо лице.

Може би много от вас са запознати с термина „Микродермабразио“, но труднопроизносимият дума обърква някои хора. Всъщност зад този термин се крие много лесна, бърза и неинвазивна процедура за подмладяване и освежаване на кожата, която е изключително популярна сред нашите пациенти. В този случай бързината оказа влияние и на моя избор и понеже нямам много време реших да започна с нея новата ни рубрика „През погледа на пациента“, в която аз или други лекари/пациенти ще ви разказваме за различни процедури в детайли, които сигурно ще ви бъдат интересни.

Самата процедура не е нова и има 40 годишна история, време през което се е наложила със своята популярност и удовлетворение на пациента.

Приложение

В началото е важно да кажем за какво е приложимо Микродермабразиото и каква е неговата полза.

Процедурата е подходяща за широк кръг от хора, но най-вече такива с плътна кожа, разширени пори, хиперпигментации и фини бръчки.

• редуцира повърхностни, фини бръчки
• повлиява добре хиперпигментациите
• придава блясък и гладкост на кожата
• редуцира белези от акне и стрии

Процедурата е релаксираща и е перфектна за обедната ви почивка. Ще се почувствате по освежени и отпочинали, оставяйки се в ръцете на нашият отличен козметик Стела Георгиева.

Step 1 – skin preparation

подготовка на кожата

It is extremely important to properly prepare the skin for any procedure so that there are no unpleasant complications and infections. Stella washed my skin with appropriate products to remove dirt and sebum and then we were ready for the real part of the treatment.

So far there was no pain and I experienced the initial stages without anesthesia and unpleasant sensations. Actually, no joke – the whole procedure is very relaxing.

Step 2 – skin treatment with microdermabrasion

The leather is treated with a diamond disc of microcrystals, the complicated name of which is corundum microcrystals. A diamond disc and crystals might sound a little scary, but it’s not, as I’ve found out.

Deep exfoliation is achieved, which leads to regeneration of the skin, improvement of blood and lymph circulation. The serum, which is applied with the movements, has an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and keratolytic (keratin softening) effect. The face is passed several times.

Step 3 – application of glycolic peeling 15%

To enhance the effect of the procedure, a serum with glycolic and salicylic acid is applied to improve skin texture, affect uneven pigmentation, inflammation and fine lines. During this step, I felt a slight burning sensation in the area around the eyes, nose and forehead.

Step 4 – exfoliation with antioxidant serumМикродермабразио

After the strong softening of the keratin from the previous steps, the skin needs another pass with the diamond disc to remove the last remnants of “dead cells”. The Antiox + serum instantly soothes slightly irritated skin from peeling. I liked this step the most, I felt a sudden relief and coolness from applying the serum.

Step 5 – Algo Mask (Optional)

My face was slightly red, but I felt completely relaxed. Stella applied an algo-mask that soothed and cooled my face so that the skin could fully recover.

After about 10 minutes with the mask on, my face looked visibly refreshed and vitalized, there were patches of skin redness that cleared up within 2 hours. Stella advised me to use creams or serums containing hyaluronic acid for deep hydration at home. That’s not a problem, thanks to my wife we have quite a few at home.
The therapy will be repeated in a week, and to achieve the maximum effect, I will have to do about 5 procedures. I will let you know the final result after that.
