What is it?
Microdermabrasion is a “lunch time” procedure that stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen. Less aggressive than laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion is a non-surgical treatment that does not require an anesthetic, and works on all skin types and colors.
How does it work?
Treatments take approximately 45 minutes. Microdermabrasion uses fine diamond tips to gently scrape off, then vacuum, the outer keratin layer of the skin. You don’t need numbing medicine. It is basically an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that leaves skin looking softer and brighter. Using this procedure can help improve the appearance of:
- Brown spots
- Shallow acne scars
- Hyper pigmentation (melasma)
- Sun-damaged skin
- Dull or aging skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone and texture
While the effects of microdermabrasion are not as dramatic as those of laser resurfacing, recovery time after the procedure is much shorter. Though there may be some redness afterwards, most patients can return to work immediately.
Microdermabrasion can be used synergistically with other aesthetic procedures such as chemical peels, BBL Photorejuvenation, Botox®, and Fillers to enhance the effects.
