Which is better HydraFacial vs microdermabrasion


The dust particles from the busy traffic, exposure to the UV rays from the sun, sleepless nights due to stress from work can take a big toll on your skin, makes your skin looks dull and dehydrated. Those expensive facial products that you apply on your skin day and night are not showing any changes, stresses you even further when you look yourself into the mirror. According to experts, if your skin follicles are blocked by dead skins or particles, the products that you used will not be absorbed by your skin cells for rejuvenation. Thus, aestheticians have invented procedures to clean your skin such as HydraFacial and Microdermabrasion in Malaysia.

Microdermabrasion is a procedure where the aesthetician uses a probe with crystalized sands to clean your skin. The concept is just like using sandpaper to smoothen the surface of the wood, which is applicable to the skin by using the crystallized products to sand away all the unwanted substances on the thick outer layer of skin. This minimally invasive procedure does not take up a lot of your time and you may continue with your daily routine or activities after that. There is a minor downside of this procedure as it creates friction on your skin, so your skin may appear red and a bit painful like you are having a sunburn. Therefore, your aesthetician will apply moisturizer and advise you not to expose under the sun for too long. Sometimes, you may find small bruises on your face but this is due to the suction during the procedure so don’t have to be alarmed. These minor side effects will subside in no time and you will notice the outcome after a few sessions of microdermabrasion.

To refine the experience received by the patients, newer technology is invented by using the power of high water velocity and the healing capacity of the oxygen to exfoliate the skin cells on your face. By using this modified probe, it will shoot the water at high speed onto your skin instead of sandpapering your skin, promoting the circulation to supply plenty of oxygen to your skin cells on the face. This will encourage collagen and elastin production which helps in rejuvenation. Other than this anti-ageing property, it can also help to reduce blackheads, dark shadows and scarring. Similar to Microdermabrasion, HydraFacial does not consume much time and there will be no down-time, but it has an advantage over Microdermabrasion where it is less likely to induce pain and skin redness after the procedure. This procedure is more gentle and advanced compared to Microdermabrasion, consisting of 4 distinctive stages of rejuvenation including cleansing, two types of exfoliation, extractions, and a final infusion of antioxidants, peptides and hydration. HydraFacial is more suitable for patients with sensitive skin as Microdermabrasion frequently reported to cause reactions in individuals with a sensitive skin condition. Of course, the cost of HydraFacial will be higher than Microdermabrasion.

Both the procedures are meant to provide smoother, softer and deeply exfoliated skin. No matter which treatments you opt-in, make sure that you choose a reliable and certified clinic to have your treatment so that your skin health will be in a good hand.
