What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a rejuvenation technique that gently exfoliates damaged skin to reveal healthy, bright skin underneath, while simultaneously stimulating collagen for continuous rejuvenation benefits. This treatment can help patients achieve a smooth, refreshed complexion, and can also be used to address the following cosmetic concerns:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage and age spots
- Enlarged pores
Complexion Perfection Duo
This treatment involves using microdermabrasion with a low to medium depth chemical peel. This combination method allows for deeper penetration of the peel ingredients for a more effective treatment to reduce acne breakouts, soften animation lines, and even out overall tone and texture of the skin.
How is Microdermabrasion Performed?
Microdermabrasion is performed with a device that blasts tiny crystals onto the skin to exfoliate the rough outer layer. It also includes a vacuum component that collects these crystals and exfoliated skin cells back into the machine. This process causes a mild scratching sensation, but most patients compare it to the feeling of a massage due to the vacuum component. A single microdermabrasion session takes approximately 30 minutes to perform.
What Can I Expect After Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a popular rejuvenation treatment because it requires no downtime or recovery. Patients are able to resume work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment. However, some patients will notice that their skin is slightly dry or sensitive following their treatment. For this reason, we may recommend a moisturizing product and advise you to avoid excessive sun exposure for a day or two after your treatment.
How Many Microdermabrasion Treatments Will I Need?
Many patients achieve beautiful rejuvenation results after their first microdermabrasion session. If you are using microdermabrasion to eliminate specific skin concerns, you may need multiple treatments to achieve your desired results. Most patients undergo two initial microdermabrasion sessions, with regular monthly treatments afterwards to maintain their results.
