Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure that enhances skin tone with deep cleaning and exfoliation to increase the skin’s circulation. During treatment, a diamond-tipped handpiece is used to gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. Dead cells are then suctioned away to reveal a healthier layer of skin and a more youthful complexion.
Those who wish to address sun damage, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, dull complexion, stretch marks, or enlarged pores can benefit from microdermabrasion. The microdermabrasion procedure is also effective on all skin types and colors, so almost anyone can benefit.
There is little to no downtime required after a microdermabrasion treatment but you should avoid sun exposure since your skin will be sensitive. Minor bruising, redness, and swelling may occur but will resolve on their own within a few days. Makeup can be applied immediately after, and patients can return to their daily activities! A healthy glow will be noticeable for a few days following your treatment, and the best results are seen after a series of treatments.
