Good skin starts at the cellular level, and Microdermabrasion is arguably one of the most popular, time-proven methods of consistent skin care that dramatically improve skin tone and texture…even after just one treatment! Microdermabrasion is used to treat a variety of skin conditions including acne, acne scars, age spots, enlarged pores, wrinkles, and that’s just the beginning. Simply put: Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective ways to maintain healthy skin that feels as good as it looks.
Microdermabrasion is a quick, non-invasive procedure used to resurface the uppermost layers of the skin. It gently removes just the very top layers of damaged skin by “sand blasting” them away with tiny crystals. The technique exfoliates and gently resurfaces the skin, promoting the formation of new smoother, clearer skin.
Microdermabrasion can be effective in reducing the appearance of dry skin, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines or a dull and lifeless appearance. This is a painless and superficial skin therapy.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does it treat?
Microdermabrasion is effective at improving and reducing fine lines, age spots or brown spots, and other superficial skin blemishes. The treatment can also be helpful with oily and enlarged pores, blackheads, and some acne scarring. In addition, microdermabrasion stimulates the creation of collagen and cell turnover. Immediately following a microdermabrasion session the skin will feel smoother and have improved texture.
How does it work?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure where very fine, sterile crystals are sprayed across the surface of the skin. They gently abrade away the dry and damaged surface cell layers, leaving the skin smoother and more vibrant.
Who is a good candidate?
Microdermabrasion is good for people who have superficial acne scars, brown sun spots, sun damage, large pores, and fine wrinkles.
Is it painful?
The procedure is very gentle. The skin will feel taught as the tip is pressed against it, with a mild tingling sensation. This may vary depending on the individual and the body area being treated.
Is it safe?
While any procedure has potential for harm, Microdermabrasion is extremely safe.
How long does it take?
The typical session for microdermabrasion takes about 30 minutes. Most clients find it a quite pleasant experience. The microdermabrasion hand piece will be passed over your skin and you will begin to feel a mild scratching as the procedure removes the superficial skin cells.
Following any microdermabrasion treatment it is important to use sunscreen as the skin is usually very sensitive to sun exposure. Also, moisturizing the skin is helpful as the microdermabrasion session will dry the skin temporarily.
Is it permanent? How often should I have it?
Your skin is continuously sloughing and regenerating. Aging and sun exposure is a life long process. Microdermabrasion requires a series of treatments. While results are achieved with a single treatment, it is unrealistic to expect significant results from a single treatment. Cumulative results can be significant with as little as 5 treatments repeated one to three weeks apart. Monthly maintenance treatments are recommended.
Can I still wear makeup?
Yes, makeup can be applied immediately after the procedure.
