Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective treatments for a variety of surface level skin issues. Fine wrinkles, sunspots and acne scars are remedied by reshaping the upper layers of skin. Unlike other skin treatments that may use chemicals or lasers to make skin more beautiful and appealing, Microdermabrasion uses a jet of crystals to exfoliate the skin. Exfoliation, by definition, is the shedding of the top most layer of skin, which can be either dead or damaged, causing abnormalities. Microdermabrasion further enhances the skin by stimulating new cell production, helping your skin rejuvenate at much faster rates.

Those struggling with mild to moderate acne can use Microdermabrasion as a great preventative solution, helping to slow down and even reverse the process of acne deformities. If you are noticing premature signs of aging, you can use Microdermabrasion to reverse most of the damage. Skin discolorations, wrinkles, and sun damage can be exfoliated by targeting the texture and irregularities of your skin, allowing you to experience smoother, younger skin.

Due to the fast and painless nature of this treatment, Microdermabrasion is often called the lunchtime peel. Patients can be in and out of the clinic in as little as 45 minutes. Monthly sessions can act as refreshers as the skin starts to rejuvenate itself much more efficiently. Even if you are happy with the way your skin looks, Microdermabrasion offers you a chance to open your pores and let your skin breathe. Adults and even teenagers can greatly benefit from having their skin exfoliated regularly. It is quite possibly the best way to maintain healthy skin that feels just as good as it looks.

    Fortunately, this treatment has absolutely no down time. You may resume your daily activities as soon as your session is finished. Due to the nature of this procedure, patients may experience slight flaking of the skin for a number of days following each session. You should not itch or peel the skin, letting it fall completely on it’s own. As a result of the exfoliation of the skin, you will become more prone to sunburns and sun damage for a few days. You should wear sunscreen if you plan on going out in the sun for an extended period of time.

  • How long do the results of Microdermabrasion last?

    Most results can be seen and felt for several weeks following each session. However, this is highly dependent on the degree and type of skin damage, as well as the number of prior & recommended treatments. While some patients may require up to two treatments a month for their initial few sessions, the majority of cases will require only one treatment per month. Results will become more visible and last longer as you continue therapy.

  • What can I expect after each Microdermabrasion session?

    Microdermabrasion is often referred to as the “lunchtime peel” due to its speed and ease. As the skin has just been exfoliated, the new layer of skin can be pink and sensitive to the touch for a few hours following the treatment. Both the treatment and the aftermath of the treatment cause little to no discomfort. While you should avoid the sun, especially in the initial hours after the treatment, you can apply makeup to the treated area to conceal any unwanted redness.

  • What kind of people should have Microdermabrasion?

    One of the safest procedures in spa treatment, Microdermabrasion can be suitable for a wide variety of people. Almost all adults as well as most adolescents can highly benefit from regular treatments. However, individuals with certain type of skin conditions may not be suitable candidates for this therapy. Patients with severe rosacea, active acne, eczema, or dermatitis may develop scarring. For those with sensitive conditions, treatments such as facials may be more appropriate.
