Medical Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation procedure which smooths wrinkles and fine lines, improves the appearance of shallow scars, reduces pore size, and helps improve age and sun spots.
Diamond tips are the secret behind the microdermabrasion technique. The diamond tip with abrade or remove the stratum corneum, the top layer of skin, and the dead skin and debris is vacuumed and filtered into the system and discarded. The procedure is comfortable for the client.
What To Expect After Treatment?
There is no downtime involved with this procedure, though microdermabrasion patients are asked to wear sunscreen after treatment, as skin will be extra sensitive to light.
Immediately following treatment, the skin will have a slightly pink hue, creating a fresh look. Self-conscious patients can easily camouflage the redness with makeup.
Skin imperfections are diminished and the skin seems softer and rejuvenated. The best results come to patients who continue a series of microdermabrasion treatments over time.
Is Microdermabrasion similar to a chemical peel?
Yes, both treatments rid the skin of the top layer of cells. Microdermabrasion is done by physical means while a peel uses chemicals to remove surface cells. Some deeper chemical peels (such as the VI Peel) may be used for stubborn pigmentation.
Will Microdermabrasion treatments give an improvement in the skin texture?
Yes, a series of treatments will make the skin smoother, softer, and with less fine wrinkles.
How many treatments are needed?
To obtain optimal results, a series of 6 rejuvenating treatments spaced 1-2 weeks apart is recommended. Continued improvement is best achieved with maintenance treatments every 4 to 6 weeks.
