A study that was recently conducted by researchers from the Department of Dermatology at the University of Michigan has found that microdermabrasion can be an effective method for treating sun-damaged skin. Forty adults, ages 50 to 83 years, participated in the University study that looked at the dermabrasion anti aging treatment. All of the subjects who participated in the Molecular analysis of aggressive microdermabrasion in photoaged skin study, which was published by the National Institutes of Health, were shown to have clinically photodamaged forearms. All of the participants were treated with diamond-studded handpieces of varying abrasiveness.
“Microdermabrasion using a coarse diamond-studded handpiece induces a dermal remodeling cascade similar to that seen in incisional wound healing,” the researchers concluded.
“Optimization of these molecular effects is likely the result of more aggressive treatment with a more abrasive handpiece.”
For years, microdermabrasion has been one of the most popular skin treatments offered at dermatology clinics, esthetician offices and medical spas. In addition to the recent study, over 25 years of research and clinical studies have indicated how the power of microdermabrasion can be an effective way to treat a variety of skin conditions, including skin that has been damaged by the sun.
