What is Microdermabrasion?

A minimally-invasive procedure, microdermabrasion uses a handheld tool to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin. As the tool is moved over treated areas, a stream of aluminum oxide crystals carefully sands the thicker, unevenly textured layer of skin. Simultaneously, vacuum suction extracts the dead and exfoliated skin cells for a cleansed, fresh feeling.

Microdermabrasion offers several benefits over other skin rejuvenation treatments:

  • The gentle sanding technology of microdermabrasion opens up the skin without causing irritation or damage.
  • Microdermabrasion can be used on any skin type
  • Several areas of the body can be treated, including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, feet and back.
  • Microdermabrasion can be done one time, in multiple sessions or in conjunction with other treatments depending on desired results.
  • It requires no downtime or recovery

After the outermost layer is removed, the skin’s natural healing response is stimulated. This promotes the production of new collagen to strengthen and tighten the skin.

The resurfacing properties of microdermabrasion can effectively reduce the appearance of several skin conditions, including blackheads, age spots, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and light acne scars.

Am I a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?

This treatment is ideal for light exfoliation and produces subtle, gradual results. Individuals seeking more dramatic results may ask about alternative treatments during the initial consultation with our medical team. Your general health, medical history, cosmetic goals, and current medications may be discussed to determine if microdermabrasion is right for you.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Your clearer, smoother skin should be long-lasting, depending on the individual condition. Results may be gradual, as it takes the skin some time to replace existing collagen. While microdermabrasion cannot prevent the effects of aging or the environment on the skin, it can effectively cleanse and refresh the skin when utilized as a regular treatment. Our medical team will recommend the best course of treatment for you based on your condition and goals.
