A common desire shared by men and women of all ages is healthy, youthful looking skin. There are several potential ways to achieve beautiful skin. In the office of your experienced dermatologist, you can benefit from care tailored to your skin type, condition, and needs. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that exfoliates the skin using gentle, efficient crystals. There are several advantages that come from treatment, which may be used alone or as a complement to another procedure. With microdermabrasion, we can improve the appearance of skin by addressing concerns such as:
- Acne scarring or other scars
- Age spots
- Sun spots
- Fine lines
- Large pores
- Blackheads and clogged pores
- Dry, thick, or rough skin
- Uneven tone or texture
What to expect from treatment
Microdermabrasion is a comfortable treatment during which fine crystals are directed towards the skin. As these crystals touch the skin, they are immediately suctioned away, but not before they have uprooted dead, damaged skin cells. After old cells have been removed with microdermabrasion, healthy new cells leave the skin looking refreshed and more youthful. Skin will feel softer and exhibit a healthy glow. No downtime is required after treatment.
The skin’s renewal process is affected by a number of factors, including elements like heat and cold, stress, aging, diet, and general health. With microdermabrasion, which accelerates the turnover of skin cells, it is possible to achieve healthier, younger looking skin in a gentle, effective manner. While the technique achieves excellent results, it carries very little risk or side effects compared to alternative treatments. Microdermabrasion is tailored to your needs. During a consultation, we can determine the strength of treatments, as well as the number of treatments needed to produce optimal results.
Microdermabrasion can be performed every one to three weeks for initial improvement, and then every four to eight weeks thereafter to maintain beautiful, healthy skin.
