What is Microdermabrasion?
Think of this as a gentle exfoliation and collagen stimulation procedure. Diamond encrusted wands are swiped over the skin to remove debris, dead skin cells, oils and other impurities, leaving your skin as smooth as baby skin. The gentle suction of the procedure helps bring blood flow to the skin and enhance collagen production along with helping to detoxify the skin. We often recommend combining this treatment with some of our laser procedures for an enhanced and synergistic benefit*.
What Can I Expect During and After My Microdermabrasion Treatment?
During the procedure, your doctor will run a microdermabrasion tool over your skin, which sprays tiny pressurized crystals onto your skin and then sucks them back up. The procedure can last for 30 to 45 minutes, and most clients report little to no discomfort.
After your treatment, your skin may be slightly red and tender, similar to a mild sunburn. These are common side effects that are a normal part of the resurfacing process. These temporary side effects usually subside on their own within a couple days of your microdermabrasion treatment session.
