Microdermabrasion is a procedure designed to rejuvenate skin by gently removing the upper layers of dead, dull skin cells to reveal fresh, smoother skin beneath. Microdermabrasion involves high-speed delivery of abrasive crystals to the skin, which sloughs away layers of dull, dry, damaged skin. Microdermabrasion is an ideal choice for people looking to refresh or rejuvenate their skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, scars, and other small imperfections. Microdermabrasion stimulates circulation in the skin, increasing the removal of toxins and promoting the natural healing process. Microdermabrasion results in healthier and more radiant skin.
Microdermabrasion is used to treat many skin concerns. Patients often have microdermabrasion to treat acne and acne scarring, to even out skin tone and discoloration, to smooth out uneven skin texture, to remove areas of sun damage, to clear blocked pores and to rejuvenate the appearance of skin without the use of chemicals. Because it is a relatively mild treatment, there is no downtime and patients can resume their usual routines right after their treatment session.
Usually, the treatment lasts approximately 45 min., but may be slightly longer or shorter depending on your skin type, skin sensitivity, and your objectives. Treatment begins with a careful cleansing of the skin to remove superficial impurities. Then the clinician passes a handheld device over the skin, delivering the tiny abrasive crystals that remove the upper layers of skin. As the old and dull skin cells are removed, a tiny suction tip vacuums the particles away, revealing fresher, smoother skin. Following treatment, patients will receive detailed instructions on how to care for the area to prolong results and keep skin looking its best. It is important to avoid sun exposure and use a sunblock with a high SPF every day.
