Microdermabrasion is an anti-aging treatment that uses the process of gentle exfoliation to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells and reveal the younger-looking, healthy skin beneath. The procedure helps to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, improve texture and brighten skin tone. It can also help to even pigmentation and decrease pore size.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive approach to anti-aging. It uses ultra-fine crystals to gently remove dead skin cells from the epidermis. The precise spray of crystals comes from a device that also works to suction the crystal particles and dead skin cells away. In short, this treatment reveals a newer layer of healthy skin, as well as stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to expedite healing.
Common Uses and Treatment Areas
Microdermabrasion is a popular cosmetic treatment that addresses a multitude of skin care issues. One of the main desires of patients who seek this treatment is to diminish the look of fine lines or wrinkles. It can also improve the texture of uneven or grainy skin, along with shrinking enlarged pores. Sun-damaged skin can be corrected through this type of treatment. Acne, blackheads and superficial scars can also be improved through microdermabrasion.
What to Expect
These treatments are performed in the comfort of our office without the need for any type of anesthesia. The size and condition of the treatment area will determine the time required for the treatment session. The procedure itself is not considered to be uncomfortable, though you can expect to feel the sensation of a mild sunburn with a slight pink tint following treatment.
An advantage to microdermabrasion is the ability to return to regular everyday activities immediately following your session. This is a safe, non-invasive procedure. Results are generally improved with a series of treatments, depending on your situation. You should have a healing period between sessions for optimal results. Our specialist will advise you on the recommended treatment plan at your consultation.
