Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
The procedure uses a unique applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it.
Microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure for most skin types and tones. However, people might get the procedure to treat fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, age spots, enlarged pores or blackheads, acne and acne scars, stretch marks, dull-looking skin complexion, sun damage, or melasma.
Microdermabrasion should be performed every 2-4 weeks for best results. Just as microdermabrasion is used on the face to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and discoloration, it also can be used effectively on the entire surface of the body.
Areas We Can Treat
You will not have downtime or a recovery period. Some patients' skin turns pink or gets minorly swollen. These side effects are similar to sunburn or windburn for a day or two.
Most patients need a series of treatments to see results. To treat signs of aging, you may treat a patient weekly, every two weeks, or monthly. Most patients receive between 5 and 16 treatments. After a series of treatments, patients usually say they have smoother skin and a more radiant complexion.
The results tend to be temporary. Patients who protect their skin from the sun and follow the recommended skincare plan will maintain their results for an extended time. Yet, no matter what we do, our skin continues to age. Follow-up treatments are usually necessary to help retain smoother skin and a more radiant complexion.
