Acne scars can dramatically impact the tone, texture, and vibrancy of your skin. To restore health and beauty to your skin, Dr. Koreen and the team at Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center in Huntington, NY provide microdermabrasion. This treatment can improve the clarity, tone, and softness of the skin to leave patients looking and feeling great.
Microdermabrasion is a safe cosmetic procedure that uses a stream of tiny crystals to gently exfoliate the skin, revealing softer, smoother, more vibrant skin. Microdermabrasion is great as a proactive skin care measure because it can restore skin texture, remove acne scars, minimize fine lines, and remove sun spots with little recovery. Microdermabrasion is less intensive than chemical peels or laser procedures, which makes it a great option for patients who want minimal disruption to their daily lives.
Microdermabrasion provides predictable results through its gradual improvement of skin texture and tone.
What does microdermabrasion treat?
Microdermabrasion is most commonly used on the face, although it can also be used on the décolletage, arms, and hands. It is considered an excellent option for treating acne scars, aging, and sun damage.
