ABOUT THE TREATMENT

Microdermabrasion treatments are a non-surgical way to freshen and rejuvenate the skin. It uses a minimally abrasive instrument such as a diamond-tipped wand to gently sand the skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer.

Treatments are used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, as well as to lessen the appearance of stretch marks, among other conditions. The technique also helps to thicken your collagen, which results in an overall younger looking complexion.

It is recommended for treatment of the following:

  • Lighten age spots and black heads
  • Lighten hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin)
  • Exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance
  • Lessen the appearance of stretch marks
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores
  • Treat acne and the scars left by acne

WHAT TO EXPECT?

BEFORE THE TREATMENT

A microdermabrasion treatment uses a diamond-tip wand attached with a gentle suction that is glided across your skin to exfoliate and simultaneously remove shed dead skin.

Treatments are not at all painful. You may however feel a mild scratching/scrubbing sensation as the procedure removes the superficial skin cells. Additionally, you'll notice a vibrating sensation akin to a massage.

AFTER THE TREATMENT

Immediately after treatment, you will notice a fairer and more even toned skin. Your polished new look should be long-lasting, depending on the severity of your skin damage and the number of treatments that you receive. Many people have two microdermabrasion treatments per month at first and then one per month as part of a maintenance plan.

One of the advantages of microdermabrasion is that it has no downtime. Only slight redness may occur and this will vary between customers, however most redness will subside within 24 hours. Make-up can be applied immediately following the procedure, which enables you to return to your normal routine directly after treatment.

Following the treatment, you may experience some slight redness around the treatment area but most patients are in and out of the physician’s office with minimal or no downtime. Usually, you may return to your daily routine immediately.

Any discomfort experienced as part of microdermabrasion is usually short-lived. This can include redness and swelling, which should subside within a few hours. You can expect the skin to be flaky and dry for several days.
