People with skin that has been damaged by the sun, age spots, acne or has a rough texture may benefit from microdermabrasion. The treatment removes the uppermost layer of skin consisting of dead skin cells to reveal a healthier appearance. The exfoliation helps to revitalize the skin and encourage blood flow. We will consult with you on the treatment plan we feel will achieve your desired results.
Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Patients may experience minor discomfort as the microdermabrasion crystals exfoliate the skin. The length and number of treatments solely depends on each individual’s condition.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that offers no downtime following treatment. Once the new layer of skin is exposed, it will be more sensitive and requires more protection from the sun. Use moisturizing creams to keep your skin hydrated and to help prevent any possible irritation.
Side effects are very rare and will not occur if properly performed by a qualified dermatologist. Temporary side effects may include mild redness, photosensitivity and minor discomfort.
