Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular non-invasive aesthetic treatment designed to rejuvenate the overall appearance of the skin. Microdermabrasion can be used on all skin types, and it is essentially painless with no recovery time.
This treatment is commonly used to address issues such as
- Skin discoloration
- Minor sun damage
- Minor acne scars
- Fine lines
How does it Work?
Microdermabrasion uses a tool to gently remove dead, dry skin cells on the surface of the skin, leaving softer, smoother skin behind. A vacuum wand with a microdermabrading tip is moved gently across the skin’s surface to provide exfoliation. Treatment generally takes 30 minutes or less to complete
How much down-time is required?
There is generally no down time. Our office utilizes crystal free system with disposable microdermabrading tips, which allow patients to have a pleasant treatment without any leftover particles on the face or hair. So patients may go back to work or other activities right after the procedure.
What about Results?
Microdermabrasion is able to produce subtle improvements in the overall appearance of the skin. It is often used in conjunction with a program of active prescription medications or cosmeceutical products for best results. It may be combined with other cosmetic procedures as such as chemical peels or micro-needling. Some patients may also consider a chemical peeel, or dermal fillers such as Botox or Juvederm.
