Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related conditions. Through removing cells from your outermost layer of skin, microdermabrasion promotes new cells to regenerate more quickly than they would ordinarily. The result is skin that looks firmer, more toned, and more youthful.
This non-surgical, non-invasive procedure utilizes a laser-cut diamond tip in combination with light suction to improve the appearance of fine lines, uneven skin tone and pigmentation, large pores, blackheads, and light acne scars. The skin is gently sanded, removing the thick uneven outer layer of cells/skin. At the end of the treatment, moisturizer, as well as sunscreen, will be applied to the area.
Microdermabrasion helps with the treatment of hyperpigmentation. This can be referred to as melasma, or any type of aging spots or darker patches on your skin. Another benefit of using microdermabrasion if you get blackheads often, this treatment may be a way to shrink your pores. Microdermabrasion is recommended by some dermatologists as a treatment for improving your skin’s conditioning and making pores less visible. Microdermabrasion encourages cell turnover, which can speed your skin’s ability to heal. That could be why the treatment is especially effective when stretch marks first appear.
There is no significant recovery time but you may leave a little flushed and swollen but it subsides within a few hours. The skin may be flaky and dry for a few days but we recommend Elta MD post-treatment moisturizers and balms. After all of our treatments, we recommend sun protection and sunscreen because the skin is more sensitive to sun exposure following the treatment.
The cost of this procedure does vary depending on the area(s) being treated. As mentioned earlier the back, chest, arms, neck, and face can be affected by acne. The number of treatments is dependent on which condition it is being treated. We do recommend a series of 6 for best results. They can be spaced two to four weeks apart. It is common for our aestheticians to customize your treatment in order to obtain your desired results. Microdermabrasion can be done before an Isolaz or chemical peel which would also affect the cost.
