Microdermabrasion is a medical procedure that uses crystals to gently exfoliate the outer layer of skin and a gentle suction that stimulates collagen growth underneath. This results in a beautiful polished glow to the skin. But more importantly, it exfoliates the outer layer, enabling other skin procedures and products to reach the tissue they are designed to treat.
Microdermabrasions are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the US today, and it is easy to see why! This quick, non-invasive procedure can:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Treat acne blemishes
- Remove sun and age spots
- Clean enlarged and blocked pores
- Restore a healthy, smooth feel to skin
- Delay signs of aging
You can expect smoother, fresher skin after one treatment, but several treatments may be needed to notice more significant changes in long-term skin problems, such as fine lines and wrinkles. We generally recommend microdermabrasion as a procedure on its own or as an adjunct to IPL, peels, laser treatments and cosmaceuticals (therapeutic skin products for wrinkles, spots, tone).
Your skin care consult will individualize your treatment plan in accordance with your specific skin qualities and goals.
