What is Microdermabrasion?

Over time, sun, air pollutants, and other damaging environmental agents that you’re exposed to every day can, and will, take their toll on your skin. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-chemical procedure that can help to reduce or eliminate wrinkles and fine lines such as crows-feet, age spots, and unwanted pigmentations that appear over time. It can eliminate unhealthy skin and encourage the production of new layers of skin with a higher level of elastin and collagen.

Considered a lunch hour procedure by many, microdermabrasion is a safe, non-surgical procedure that can reduce facial lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging, it also gives skin a fresh, healthy, younger-looking glow. Benefits include reduction or disappearance of age spots and blackheads, patches of darkened skin, younger-looking and fresher-looking appearance, reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and acne scarring.

Microdermabrasion Candidates

Healthy individuals who wish to improve on their skin imperfections can often benefit from microdermabrasion. However, this treatment may not be right if you are pregnant or nursing, if you have taken the acne medicine isotretinoin in the past six months or have a history of keloid scarring. The best way to determine if you are a candidate is to contact our office today and schedule a consultation.

The Microdermabrasion Treatment

During a microdermabrasion treatment, a special handheld device will be used to stream very tiny crystals across the skin, while a vacuum piece simultaneously suctions the crystals and dead skin cells back into the machine. This process is not painful but may create a vibrating sensation along your skin. Treatment takes about one hour to complete.

What to Expect Following Microdermabrasion

There is no downtime needed following microdermabrasion, making it a great option for individuals with busy lifestyles who don’t have time for recovery. Patients are free to return to their normal activities right away. However, we do advise that patients avoid spending long periods of time in the sun, and wear sunscreen when outdoors. Individuals are encouraged to undergo a series of treatments to further improve their skin and maintain results.
