What is the difference between Vibradermabrasion and Medical Microdermabrasion?

Would you like to restore that youthful glow to your skin? You might want to consider microdermabrasion. It is one of the most effective ways to get tried, dull skin beautiful again. There are also more advanced alternatives like Vibradermabrasion. What’s the difference between Vibradermabrasion and medical microdermabrasion? Let’s take a look

Microdermabrasion is a skin care treatment that resurfaces the skin by sanding away the top layer. It is considered an effective anti-aging tool, as it targets signs of age such as wrinkles and fine lines. It can also assist with skin issues such as photodamage and acne, and deep cleans pores and follicles for a fresher appearance. The procedure can be done in 20 to 30 minutes, and there is very little downtime.

Difference between Vibradermabrasion & Microdermabrasion
Vibradermabrasion gently exfoliates the skin, and also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. These skin components rejuvenate the cells, making the skin smoother and firmer.

Medical dermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that is designed to exfoliate and refresh the skin. This was traditionally achieved with the use of tiny crystals, but there are now crystal-free alternatives available. These methods utilize a diamond tip wand to remove the topmost layer of dead skin cells.

Vibradermabrasion is performed using a vibrating paddle to exfoliate the skin, while medical microdermabrasion uses crystals or a diamond tip wand. Vibradermabrasion is a more efficient procedure, as the paddle can access small areas, and can also be safely used around the eyes.  In addition, it can help to infuse medical-grade products into the skin.
