Your skin is exposed to environmental elements every day. Over the years, the sun's rays, pollution, and other damaging agents can take a toll on your skin. Microdermabrasion treatment can help reduce or eliminate the wrinkles and fine lines, "crow's feet," age spots, light acne scars, and undesired pigmentation that may appear on the skin over time.
What Is Microdermabrasion ?
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin.
Microdermabrasion also encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance.
In our offices we use the most advanced microdermabrasion machine on today’s market which combines crystal and diamond features in one. Crystal microdermabrasion uses a powerful device to spray microcrystals of aluminum dioxide (corundum powder) across the skin’s surface. The aluminum dioxide is a very fine, very hard, sand-like material that blasts away the uppermost layer of dead skin cells on the skin's epidermis.
Diamond microdermabrasion device uses diamond-tipped handpiece that mechanically abrades the skin, and the usual suction system that vacuums the exfoliated particles away.
Microdermabrasion Recovery and Results
Two of the most gratifying benefits of microdermabrasion are rapid recovery and near-immediate results. In the time it would take to grab a quick lunch, patients can dramatically rejuvenate their skin, reduce the appearance of mild acne scars, and achieve a healthy, vibrant glow.
What to Expect Following Microdermabrasion Treatment
After the first treatment, the complexion will have a pink or red glow, which typically fades after a day. Redness may last slightly longer after more aggressive dermabrasiontreatments . The skin may feel as though it were sun- or windburned, but this sensation should subside fairly quickly. During microdermabrasion recovery, patients generally experience immediate improvements, but optimal results will not be visible until the patient has completed all recommended treatments. A typical course of treatment ranges from five to twelve sessions spaced a week or two apart.
Post Microdermabrasion Skin Care
To maximize microdermabrasion recovery and results, it is important to follow all post-procedure instructions, which will include keeping the new skin clean and moisturized. It is also important to avoid sun exposure and wearing make-up immediately after a microdermabrasion treatment in order to allow the skin to heal. Although some peeling may occur in the treated areas, moisturizer should help to minimize this effect. Patients who absolutely cannot avoid sun exposure should use a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher.
Microdermabrasion results are usually immediate and noticeable. Fine lines, enlarged or clogged pores, mild acne and complexion issues, and a host of other skin problems can be treated with microdermabrasion. In addition, most patients experience dramatic improvements in the color, tone, and texture of treated areas.
In general, microdermabrasion results in thicker, healthier, more youthful looking skin. Over the course of a full set of treatments, the body will produce new layers of skin containing higher levels of elastin and collagen. This, in turn, improves the complexion and gives the skin a more radiant, vibrant glow.
It is recommended to do 5-10 sessions 1-2 weeks apart for the best results.
The cost of the treatment is $100.00. When combined with other procedures - $60.00
