What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment designed to exfoliate skin, improve skin tone and texture, and diminish signs of aging.
It is performed in the comfort of our office in 30-40 minutes and is safe for all skin types and tones.
Most patients benefit from a series of four-to-six sessions, scheduled every two-to-three weeks.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
During a microdermabrasion treatment, a wand with a coarse or diamond tip is glided over the skin. This process removes the top layer of skin, including dead skin cells, oil, dirt, bacteria, and other debris.
In some instances, crystals are sprayed or rubbed into skin in order to assist in the exfoliation process.
What Are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?
One of the key benefits of microdermabrasion is that it is very versatile. In fact, it can treat a wide-range of cosmetic concerns, including dullness, uneven skin tone, uneven skin texture, age spots, hyperpigmentation secondary to acne, melasma, and scarring.
Plus, treatment is non-invasive, non-surgical, and non-thermal, carries minimal risk, and doesn’t require any recovery or downtime.
Are There Any Side Effects?
In most cases, microdermabrasion presents with few, if any, side effects. Those that do occur usually last a couple of days and may include swelling, redness, a burning or stinging sensation, and increased sensitivity to sunlight.
It’s important for patients to follow all post-care instructions and apply a daily broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least a 30 SPF.
