Microdermabrasion is a wonderful alternative to laser or chemical peels because it is non-invasive, nonsurgical and requires no down time after treatment. Normal activities may be resumed immediately. Your skin will have a radiant glow and be soft to the touch. Patients experience softer, smoother and cleaner skin after the first treatment. Facial products will have greater results, as they will absorb better into the skin. Treatment series vary from four to ten sessions depending on the condition being treated and the type of skin.
Microdermabrasion can improve sun damaged skin, fade age spots, reduce fine lines, blend cosmetic surgery or laser treatments, reduce very surface acne scarring, extract blackheads and whiteheads, revise minor scars, reduce hyperpigmentation, decrease in oily skin, and rejuvenate overall skin health.
Medical microdermabrasion is indicated for the patient that needs an extra boost. With this procedure, a microdermabrasion is performed with a light glycolic peel.
Your skin may look slightly flushed immediately after the treatment but should return to normal in 10-30 minutes. Some sun sensitivity may occur during the treatment process. Your skin will look and feel smoother even after the first treatment and will continue to improve with additional treatments.
