As a general rejuvenation treatment for the face, microdermabrasion effectively reduces surface blemishes while also stimulating collagen growth in the skin. This creates a smoother, younger appearance in the face while also promoting healthy skin.
Microdermabrasion is great as a standalone procedure, and it may also be done as a comprehensive rejuvenation program. By unclogging the pores and removing surface layers of skin, it gives your skin the opportunity to restore its vitality. We use microdermabrasion to:
- Reduce the appearance of age spots and blackheads
- Improve skin discoloration
- Exfoliate the skin, resulting in a refreshed glow
- Reduce surface scars, including acne scars
- Give the skin a smoother surface
- Reduce enlarged pores
- Reduce fine lines
How it works
Microdermabrasion is a painless procedure and does not require any anesthetic. During the procedure, your therapist will pass a special type of instrument over the surface of your face. This instrument uses tiny, abrasive crystals that are delivered to the skin and immediately suctioned back into the handpiece. This gently sands your skin, removing the outer layers with the crystals concurrently cleansing the pores and getting rid of oil. The machine used in microdermabrasion can be adjusted according to the patient’s skin and comfort. Additionally, the strength of crystal flow will determine how deeply the procedure exfoliates the skin. Depending on your exact case, your therapist may make multiple passes over your skin for best results. This will be determined during your initial consultation.
When it comes to microdermabrasion, the best results often come from multiple treatments. The number and frequency of treatment will depend on your skin type and what you’re looking to correct. A treatment plan will be established during your initial consultation.
After microdermabrasion, it’s important to remember that you have cleared away the outer layer of your skin. Because of this, it is vital to take good care of your skin for the first several days while the cells regenerate. Your therapist will go over basic guidelines and rules that you should follow after each microdermabrasion session.
