Sun and age
Sun exposure can cause wrinkles and fine lines on the face, and aging has much the same effect. Age spots, patches of darker skin and enlarged pores are other results that begin to form over time. Microdermabrasion can help to smooth fine lines, reduce enlarged pores and create a more even skin tone that fades age spots. If you are interested in smoother skin without many of these effects of aging, give us a call to find out more and to schedule your consultation.
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*.
Skin imperfections and conditions
There is a wide range of skin conditions and marks that can be helped with microdermabrasion. Light scars can be lessened with this treatment. Stretch marks and blackheads can also be treated with it. If you suffer from acne, this skin treatment can treat your acne and leave your skin clearer. The light abrasion of microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin and cleans the pores, leading to skin that looks cleaner and more even.
If you have trouble with acne, acne scars or other mild skin conditions, contact us today to get started with your own skin treatment. It’s a quick and easy way to get the smoother skin you want without having the downtime that surgery requires. Your skin can look younger, tighter and fresher with just one treatment of this proven procedure. For years, men and women have used this treatment for better-looking skin, and you can do the same.
What Can I Expect During and After My Microdermabrasion Treatment?
Microdermabrasion is entirely non-invasive. It is not a surgery, so there is none of the downtime that comes with surgical procedures. Instead, it uses an instrument that sands the skin gently. It is minimally abrasive and takes little time to complete. This sanding treatment uses micro crystals that are sprayed onto the skin to take off the top layer. This layer is dry and is made up of dead skin cells. When it is removed, younger skin that looks healthier is revealed. That deeper skin also has more elastin and collagen, and that allows it to look younger and to be smoother and more elastic. With the uneven layer of outer skin gone, the smoother, more even skin is left for a refreshed look. Patients at The Dermatology, Laser & Vein Center can get rejuvenated, younger-looking skin with just a single treatment session.
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.
