Microdermabrasion Overview

Microdermabrasion facial is a deeply effective treatment for renewing a fresh, young-looking glow to your skin.

Microdermabrasion can best be described as plastic surgery without the plastic… or the surgery! It’s one of the simplest and least disruptive skin treatments and is ideal even for people with sensitive skin. The microdermabrasion technique works with microcrystals, which are hard enough to disrupt unwanted tired skin cells that cause dull looking skin. But small enough not to do any damage or even cause discomfort or pain. The technique involves propelling the microcrystals across the skin’s surface, removing only the top layer of skin cells. This technology reveals new, living cells leaving a healthy glow. The epidermal layers of the skin are rejuvenated leading to collagen production and plumper skin.

Microdermabrasion is a progressive procedure. After the first session your skin will feel softer and you may see a very subtle improvement. Generally a course of sessions is required to gain visible improvement. Your skin however will improve with additional treatments as increased circulation is noted within the dermis and newer, healthier skin cells are produced.

Not only does undergoing a microdermabrasion facial mean not having any artificial or even natural substances injected, but it also works in harmony with your body. Once the treatment has removed dead and tired cells, your body will work to replace them with fresh, healthier looking skin.

Having a microdermabrasion facial does not cause any pain or even discomfort.

Not only can you return to your normal routine immediately after treatment, but you can even reapply your make-up right away. The only real side effect is possible temporary redness of the skin, which soon fades. Other existing medical conditions should be highlighted during your consultation and advice will be given on an individual basis.

Microdermabrasion F.A.Q.

Is it painful?

Microdermabrasion is not at all a painful process. Most patients describe the feeling as similar to gently scratching your face. This feeling is created by the circulation and suctioning of the aluminum oxide crystals on your skin.

 

What results can I expect and how soon?

We use microdermabrasion as a treatment by itself or often in conjunction with laser based treatments, but patients will generally notice their skin is slightly pink immediately after treatment. Within a couple of hours you’ll notice your skin looks smoother taking on a polished appearance. With additional treatments patients will notice less defined age spots or discoloration of the skin, reduction in fine lines, and a softening of the skin.

 

Will I need only one microdermabrasion treatment?

To get the most out of microdermabrasion, patients will usually want to get a series of treatments; however, you’ll notice some improvement with one. After completing a series of treatments spaced out about 2 weeks apart, most patients are able to maintain their newly smooth, healthy, youthful skin appearance with monthly maintenance treatments.

 

Are there any special instructions I need to follow after a microderabrasion procedure?

The only after treatment care which is essential is to where a moisturizer that contains proper UVA and UVB sunscreen with an SPF of at least 25. While using such a moisturizer is considered part of a good daily skin care regimen, it must be worn for at least two days following microdermabrasion.

 

How long do I have to wait between procedures?

In most cases patients may schedule treatment sessions as close as 2 weeks apart. However, we generally recommend after undergoing a series of microdermabrasion treatments, monthly maintenance to keep your skin looking young and beautiful.

 

Is the treatment safe?

Yes, the treatment is very safe. There is no pain and no down time associated with microdermabrasion.
