What Is Microdermabrasion?
Individuals who have experienced damage to their skin because of prolonged exposure to the sun often find microdermabrasion to be an effective treatment. Microdermabrasion is a procedure that involves using a handheld device to exfoliate the skin. It removes the epidermis, or top layer of skin, and encourages the production of new skin cells.
Additionally, microdermabrasion can help thicken existing collagen to strengthen the structure of the skin, resulting in a refreshed, more youthful appearance. Not only is microdermabrasion non-invasive, but it can also be cost effective when compared to other skin rejuvenation procedures.
Is Microdermabrasion Right For Me?
It will be determined during your initial consultation whether microdermabrasion is right for you. Our medical team will discuss the results of this procedure as well as what you can expect and whether microdermabrasion fits your cosmetic expectations and goals.
How Long Does It Take To Recover From Microdermabrasion?
There is no downtime necessary after microdermabrasion. You can return to normal activities after treatment. Some pinkness in the treated area is common and will typically subside within 24 hours. Your skin may also be dry and flaky after getting microdermabrasion. You will be advised prior to treatment how to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized.
After treatment, you may also be advised to limit your sun exposure for a few days and take proper precautions such as sunscreen in order to maintain results.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments required is dependent on the severity of the sun damage. However, many people find that multiple treatments achieve the best results. Maintenance treatments can also maintain the results of this treatment over the long term. Your individual treatment plan will be discussed during your visit.
How Long Does It Take To Perform Microdermabrasion?
The amount of time that it takes to perform microdermabrasion can vary, but it typically takes about half an hour. Microdermabrasion is not painful, but you may experience a gentle scratching sensation as the skin cells are being removed and exfoliated. You may also notice a vibrating sensation, which will only last during the duration of the treatment.
Risks of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a safe, non-invasive procedure. Slight bruising and sensitivity are common side effects, which should alleviate shortly after treatment.
