Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment that helps to exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells blocking newer skin underneath. It helps to stimulate the growth of new collagen to improve the look and feel of your skin. With regular treatments, you should notice a reduction in skin problems such as dull skin, blemishes, and fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment also helps to increase the absorption of products like lotions, creams, ointments, and serums.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing treatment that can help you if you are dealing with dull skin tone, light lines and wrinkles, or superficial acne scars. The outermost layer of your skin, medically known as the stratum corneum, is composed of inorganic material like dead skin cells and cellular debris. Removing this outer layer is like wiping the dust from a lightbulb. Your living skin tissue underneath will have its full radiance revealed. Patients respond best to multiple treatments on a regular basis, as this skin buildup is the natural result of skin cell development and maturation.
How Does It Work?
We use a hand-held device to spray tiny abrasive particles onto your skin to break up the molecular bonds holding the stratum corneum together. At the end of the treatment, we suction away the microscopic particles and the dead skin cells to reveal fresher, more youthful skin underneath that literally glows.
Would I Make a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
The overwhelming majority of people would make suitable candidates for a microdermabrasion treatment. Good candidates include those who want to brighten their complexion and have a healthy radiance. It also helps those dealing with superficial acne scars, light sun damage, or fine lines and wrinkles. If you have clogged pores, you may also benefit from this treatment.
The treatment is safe and effective for all colors and skin types. You will notice immediate results without any requirement for downtime or any discomfort. The treatment is not effective for those with serious skin conditions like active rosacea, deep acne, dermatitis, or eczema. To achieve maximum results, you will need to undergo regular treatment sessions.
