Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical treatment that can refresh, brighten, smooth and even out the color of your skin. The procedure encompasses a special tool similar to a small vacuum that exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells by using a strong suction force. The skin is buffed and polished by using a stream of fine crystals.
Microdermabrasion makes way to for a fresh, new layer of skin, which can help to make individuals appear more youthful and energized.
Typically there are a series of treatments, each lasting approximately 30 minutes. Your skin will be assessed by Dr. Talebzadeh at Eastlake Cosmetic Surgery and skin care goals will be discussed.
Microdermabrasion is a very popular anti-aging treatment that leaves the skin feeling soft, supple and vibrant. The treatment offers subtle changes, but can lessen fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars; results can differ greatly depending on each person’s skin. Microdermabrasion may also reduce the appearance of age spots and skin damage caused by the sun.
Is Microdermabrasion Painful?
Microdermabrasion is very gentle and not painful at all; the procedure is non-invasive. The skin may appear slightly pink after the procedure and may feel dry and/or tight. Taking a break from makeup for a day will allow the skin to breathe and relax. Avoiding the sun for a few days after microdermabrasion is highly recommended, as well as wearing a high SPF sunscreen. Moisturizers should also be applied after a microdermabrasion treatment to help calm the skin.
How Often Should I Get Microdermabrasion?
Typically there are a series of 6-10 treatments and each treatment is scheduled about a month apart. However, only you and your skin care professional can determine how frequently you should receive Microdermabrasion, as it depends on your specific skin needs and finances.
At Home Treatment vs. Professional Treatment
There are at home treatments kits which work well, but differ from professional treatment as professional treatment goes deeper into the skin. Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types and colors.
