Consultation required prior to receiving treatment.
Microdermabrasion is the most natural way to evenly and safely exfoliate the skin without chemicals or laser. Microdermabrasion utilizes crystals to finely resurface superficial layers of the skin. When a more aggressive treatment is necessary, vacuum pressure can be increased to evenly penetrate deeper layers of the skin. By taking away dead skin cell layers that build up on the epidermis, newer cells are being regenerated faster – therefore, skin is left looking refreshed and rejuvenated. Microdermabrasion is an efficient and non-invasive way to address skin concerns including, but not limited to: sun damage, melasma, acne, scarring, fine lines, and rosacea.
1. What is Microdermabrasion?
It is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that offers safe and controlled skin abrasion. It utilizes micro-crystals, which are propelled at a high speed across the skin’s surface to abrade the skin’s tissue. The technique is very quick and relatively painless and results are seen immediately. There is no downtime, side effects or risk of contamination or skin infection.
2. Is it safe?
Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types and colors. The procedure gently removes a very thin layer (10-20 microns) off the top of your epidermis. The treatment requires no anesthesia, causes no discomfort, and has no recovery time.
3. How soon will I see results?
After your first treatment, your skin will have a fresh pink glow. Improvement continues throughout your treatment program. The number of treatments recommended for maximum results ranges from four to six.
4. How long does the procedure last?
Microdermabrasion takes less than an hour to treat the whole face.
5. Am I a good candidate?
The treatment is ideal for people who have sensitive skin that reacts to chemicals or those with oily, acne-prone skin that is not improved by acne remedies. It is an excellent option for those who cannot afford to take time off for healing from laser resurfacing or deep dermabrasion.
6. How does it work?
The stimulated blood flow to the surface of the skin increases the oxygenation, causing an enhancement of cell renewal and collagen re-growth. The massaging action of the microdermabrasion treatment creates a flushing and cleansing effect below the skin surface resulting in a vibrant, healthy appearance and complexion.
7. How am I assessed for Microdermabrasion?
You can contact us by phone or online to schedule a complimentary consultation. During your consultation, an overall skin assessment will be done to determine the number of treatments that will be necessary to reach your individual goal. Typically, treatments are performed weekly or bi-weekly and produce best results if taken in a series of 4 or 6. Depending on your skin condition, a more aggressive plan of alternating Glycolic Peels with Microdermabrasion treatments may be recommended. You are also expected to comply with the maintenance program using a skincare regimen to maintain results.
8. What should I expect after each treatment?
Your Skin should appear light pink with a soft texture. More aggressive treatments may leave a redness appearance for approximately 24 hours. You may also experience a light peeling. It is recommended that you go without cosmetic makeup for 1 day. You should avoid the sun for 24 hours after treatment and when exposed to the sun use an SPF 30 sunblock.
9. What other treatments can microdermabrasion be combined with?
It is very common for patients to combine microdermabrasion with other skin treatments such as FotoFacial™ RF and glycolic and vitalize peels. Treatment combinations and options are presented to you at the time of your complimentary consult.
