Medical Microdermabrasion – Microdermabrasion is an effective, gentle way to exfoliate the outermost layers of the skin to help reveal softer, smoother, more vibrant skin. Fine lines, crow’s feet, age spots, large pore size, stretch marks, acne and acne scarring have all shown improvement after treatment.
The procedure uses light abrasion to gently smooth surface skin cells. It is not painful and does not require the use of an anesthetic. Microdermabrasion is safe and effective.
Commonly thought of as a lunchtime procedure, it only takes about thirty minutes to complete. There is no recovery time and normal activities can be resumed immediately. Repeated treatments are recommended for optimal results. Typically, between five and twelve treatments are performed, spaced two to three weeks apart. Chemical peels are sometimes combined with microdermabrasion to further enhance results. Following treatment, your skin will appear pink and feel softer. Makeup and moisturizers may be applied immediately.
Direct UV exposure should be avoided, and sunscreen should be worn for the first 24 hours following treatment.
