Microdermabrasion reduces the appearance of mild to moderate sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other superficial skin problems with a gentle stream of tiny particles that exfoliate (abrade) the outer layer of skin and provide a fresh, glowing, younger appearance.
How does microdermabrasion work?
The particles scrape away the surface layer of aging or damaged skin, which is then brushed off with the microdermabrasion vacuum tool, with no need for anesthesia. Only a small amount of skin is removed, so damaged areas on sensitive areas such as the face, chest, neck, arms and hands can be treated.
How long before I can see results?
Results are comparable to a light chemical peel and should be immediately visible, although multiple treatments are usually required for full effect.
Are all skin types eligible for treatment?
Yes. In fact, the procedure is particularly helpful for Asian and dark-skinned patients who risk skin discoloration with other treatment options.
Can other procedures be performed at the same time?
Microdermabrasion is often performed in conjunction with other skin renewal procedures, such as laser treatment and chemical peels.
