Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, exfoliating treatment helpful for those unhappy with acne scarring, sun-damaged skin, age spots, freckles, stretch marks, fine lines, scars, and rough skin. Microdermabrasions can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, back, elbows, and feet. Microdermabrasions are a safe, therapeutic approach to skin care when used alone, or in combination with other treatments.
What is treatment like?
Microdermabrasions are performed by using an adjustable suction tip, based on the patient’s skin type, to give an aggressive or gentle suction. The adjustable tip allows the damaged skin cells on the surface of the skin to be uprooted, revealing fresh, invigorated skin.
What results can I expect?
Microdermabrasion accelerates the cellular turnover process, bringing the patient closer to healthier, younger-looking skin. It allows you to gradually resurface your skin without the risks, side effects, and down time of more aggressive alternatives. In as little as twenty minutes, this gently abrasive technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Improvements in appearance and texture will occur with successive treatments.
How many treatments will I need?
To achieve maximum results, several treatments are recommended, typically scheduled two to four weeks apart. The patient will experience a progressive improvement throughout your treatment program.
How does my skin look immediately after treatment?
Microdermabrasion leaves the skin feeling soft and the patient will notice a healthy glow to his or her complexion. Because of the increase of circulation, a mild temporary blush surrounding the treated area may be the only evidence of your therapy.
