Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that focuses on exfoliating the outer layers of skin. It is different from chemical peels in that it does not use any chemicals to exfoliate the skin, making it safer for those who have allergies to certain substances or who do not want the recovery period that is associated with moderate to deep chemical peels.
This treatment can be used for a variety of needs, including aging skin, dull and dry skin or acne-prone skin. It helps you get rid of dull, dead skin cells that are blocking new cells from rising to the surface of the skin. Thus, it can give you a refreshed look and a new glow. It can also target your skin’s natural healing processes, which can, in turn, create new collagen beneath the skin and new skin cells, thus helping get rid of some minor signs of aging, such as enlarged pores and fine lines.
One major benefit of microdermabrasion is its ability to get rid of skin discoloration by removing the top layer of skin over these darkened areas and replacing the area with fresh skin cells that are lighter in color. During the procedure, the top layer of skin is gently removed.
This procedure is completely non-invasive and is an easy way to get amazing results. Most of our patients find the procedure to be comfortable and relaxing. Therefore, local anesthesia is not needed.
You will notice immediate results after your first microdermabrasion procedure. First, your pigmented areas will look lighter. You may notice a glow on your skin. Plus, over the next few days to weeks, your skin will speed up the production of new, healthy skin cells and will be targeted to produce more collagen beneath the skin, which can lead to a smoother appearance overall.
