A new study from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons has revealed the benefits of microdermabrasion for acne scars, Riiviva offers microdermabrasion product for home use.
Salt Lake City, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/25/2012 -- One of the top five minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the United States, microdermabrasion is a popular technique used in the treatment of several skin problems, including acne and acne scarring.
New research from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons has used evidence to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of microdermabrasion in skin care, including its impact on acne scars.
The report states that “microdermabrasion appears to be a procedure that can produce changes in dermal matrix constituents and result in improvement in skin contour irregularities. It may also be beneficial in improving transepidermal delivery of certain medications”.
Don Banner, from Riiviva, a US-based company that designs and markets clinical technologies for home use, explains what this means to those suffering from acne scars.
“One of the most common and bothersome types of scarring is caused by acne. They are a constant reminder of self-esteem issues stemming from adolescence, and what’s worse, most of the time they can’t be hidden underneath clothing,” Mr Banner said.
“This report recognizes the positive effects of microdermabrasion for acne. It is a mild and painless procedure that does not require the use of anesthesia.”
Microdermabrasion is a process that deeply exfoliates, polishes, and increases the lymphatic drainage of skin. By encouraging the growth of new skin cells, this evens out the skin's texture, making the scars less visible. While microdermabrasion is most commonly used on the face, it can also be used on the neck, back and hands.
As a non-invasive process, the report says that microdermabrasion appears to have a high safety profile, with low risk of adverse events. Unlike laser procedures, it is safe in almost all skin types, with a very minimal risk of scarring or pigmentary alteration of the skin.
Riiviva offers a product that allows individuals to perform their own professional microdermabrasion treatments in the comfort and privacy of their own home. Riiviva Microderm is designed based on the same principles as professional microdermabrasion systems and delivers proven professional results, at a fraction of the cost.
“Riiviva Microderm is simple, safe and affordable. Best of all, you can perform it in your own home without making the trip to and from the doctor’s office,” Mr Banner added.
