What Is Mircodermabrasion
Whether you want to minimize your pore size, diminish fine lines and wrinkles or revitalize course, textured skin, microdermabrasion may be the answer. Using a powerful mechanical abrasion device that sprays microcrystals across the treatment area, microdermabrasion effectively removes the top layer of dead skin cells while simultaneously promoting collagen production and the growth of new skin cells.
Are you a good candidate to have a Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion can be performed on the face, arms and neck, and is effective in improving the appearance of the following imperfections:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Small scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Coarse, textured skin
- Whiteheads, blackheads and other blemishes
If you’re unhappy with any of these conditions listed, you may be a good candidate for microdermabrasion. However, if you have extensive hyperpigmentation or if you’re suffering with active acne, warts, rosacea, unstable diabetes or other auto-immune disorders, you may not be a suitable candidate. Please discuss your medical history with us prior to having this treatment.
How is the procedure performed?
Prior to the treatment, your skin will be cleansed thoroughly. While it may be slightly uncomfortable, microdermabrasion is relatively painless. Our trained technicians will direct the hand-held microdermabrasion machine over the treatment area, gently exfoliating it with a stream of crystals. Once this is complete, the sloughed off skin cells will be suctioned away, leaving you with a new layer of fresh skin cells. Afterward, our expert aesthetician will apply rehydrating products to your skin.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure is done in our beautiful facility and typically takes no more than 30 minutes. You may, however, need between four and six treatments to achieve optimal results.
What happens after the procedure? What is the recovery process?
While you may experience some redness following the procedure, this should go away within a few hours. We will also advise you to avoid going out in the sun for at least a week after your treatment, and to wear SPF should you need to do so.
To ease the sun- or wind-burnt feel, you can apply moisturizer to the treated area, but avoid wearing foundation for at least 24 hours. Other than that, microdermabrasion requires little to no down time, and you’re able to resume normal daily activities immediately.
