Microdermabrasion is basically an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that leaves skin looking softer and brighter. It is a “lunch time” procedure which it takes less than an hour, approximately only 45 minutes, to complete. The main purpose of the treatment is to stimulate the production of new skin cells and collagen. Microdermabrasion uses fine diamond tips to gently scrape off, then vacuum, the outer keratin layer of the skin. Less aggressive than laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion is a non-surgical treatment that does not require an anesthetic (yes – you don’t need numbing medicine!) and works on all skin types and colors.
Using this procedure can help improve the appearance of:
- Age spots / Sun 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. While there may be some redness, patients can return to work immediately after treatment.
