Microdermabrasion is a luxurious facial treatment that targets wrinkles, sun spots, and acne to revitalize your skin.
Whether you are looking for effective acne treatment, wrinkle treatment, or sun spot corrector, microdermabrasion is one of the most refreshing facials you can get. When you book a treatment with the aesthetic medical providers at The Dermatology, Laser & Vein Center, this facial treatment will renew and rejuvenate your skin.
The Microdermabrasion Process
Over time, environmental toxins, dust, bacteria, and oil can build up on your skin, leaving blemishes and blackheads. Time spent in the sun can create discolorations, like sun spots.
Microdermabrasion is an advanced exfoliation procedure that removes dead skin cells, minimizes the appearance of dark spots from the sun, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
It also works well as an acne treatment, as microdermabrasion can be used to clear out pores that have become clogged over time with dead skin cells or oil.
At The Dermatology, Laser & Vein Center, we complete a microdermabrasion treatment using a diamond-tipped handpiece that scrapes away damaged or dead skin particles. The diamond tip has a gritty texture that works to exfoliate while a suction mechanism clears out the undesired material.
By the end of your microdermabrasion session, you can enjoy skin that is reinvigorated and renewed. With no downtime or recovery needed after the procedure, this treatment is an ideal option for those who have mild to moderate skin concerns ranging from acne and congested skin to hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone.
Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen production and blood flow to the skin on your face. The suction and pressure of the wand can help to facilitate healthy blood flow, which revitalizes your complexion. Proper blood flow is necessary for healthy cells and a youthful appearance.
After a microdermabrasion treatment, your body will continue to produce more collagen, which can help you to enjoy the effects of your treatment for weeks.
Can Microdermabrasion Help with Common Skin Conditions or Signs of Aging?
Microdermabrasion can significantly improve the texture, complexion, and youthfulness of the skin. It can reduce the effects of several common skin concerns, which is why our experienced aesthetic medical providers often recommend it as a wrinkle treatment or acne treatment.
Some of the skin conditions that microdermabrasion can help to address include:
- Stretch marks
- Dull complexion
- Uneven skin tone
- Large pores
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment for skin conditions that affect skin tone, texture, and pigment. It can safely be used for the skin on the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms.
Microdermabrasion is also an effective wrinkle treatment because it removes the first layer of aged, dry skin. Wrinkles stem from dehydrated skin that forms creases and lines over time. Because the treatment exposes a fresh layer of skin, patients enjoy a revitalized appearance and a healthy glow after the session is complete.
In some cases, we might recommend combining microdermabrasion with other treatments to enjoy the best results. For example, microdermabrasion can work well with laser treatments to address more severe skin conditions.
How Soon After Treatment Will I Notice Results?
On average, a microdermabrasion session will take between 30 and 45 minutes to complete, depending on the number of areas that will be treated. This means that you can easily fit in a treatment during a lunch break or at the end of the workday. It’s a great way to pamper your skin!
Most patients notice positive results immediately after their microdermabrasion facial is complete. You may see a more even skin tone as the new skin cells are exposed for the first time. You might also notice a smoother texture.
Patients with acne often notice that their pores are far less clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and blackheads after a treatment. The appearance of acne and acne scars can be significantly reduced after microdermabrasion, as well.
How Long Will the Results Last?
We may recommend more than one microdermabrasion session to maintain your beautiful skin. The number of treatments you will need will depend on the unique skin concerns you’d like to address.
Moisturization and sunscreen are key to maintaining your results after a microdermabrasion treatment. Your skin needs to stay hydrated to retain its smooth, clear appearance.
SPF is vital for combating the signs of aging in general, but it is especially important right after microdermabrasion, as the new layer of skin cells will be vulnerable to sun damage.
A good skincare routine will help you maintain your microdermabrasion results. During your treatment, we can recommend products that will work well with your complexion while effectively nourishing your skin.
