You may have heard about microdermabrasion before, or maybe you have even tried it at home. But did you know that at-home microdermabrasion treatments only have a fraction of the effect the procedure can have when you have it done professionally?
At Advanced Aesthetics Salon & Medical Spa, we offer microdermabrasion to help our patients with a variety of skin care concerns they may have. When performed at our office, this treatment can clear away dead skin cells, all while promoting the production of new skin cells and collagen. And because it’s non-invasive, there is no downtime involved in this procedure!
What Is It?
Microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin, removing the superficial layer of dead skin cells. This skin exfoliation procedure is perfect to target fine lines, uneven pigmentation, clogged pores, age spots, blackheads, and more. It can thicken collagen and help even out a patient’s skin tone, revealing smooth, healthy skin.
There are two different ways microdermabrasion is performed. One of them uses a handheld device, which our team will gently move along the patient’s skin. The device streams exfoliating crystals, which are simultaneously suctioned along with the dead skin. The other uses a diamond tip wand, which is moved across the patient’s skin to exfoliate, increasing collagen production.
What Can I Expect?
Depending on the treatment areas, the desired results, and each patient’s preferences, microdermabrasion treatments can be performed on a weekly, biweekly, monthly or bi-monthly basis. It’s relatively painless and there’s no downtime involved, though the skin may be slightly red or more sensitive after the treatment. Each procedure lasts around 30 to 45 minutes, and while the results are only temporary, they may last longer if the patient closely follows skin care instructions after the treatment.
Am I a Candidate?
If you are struggling with discoloration, hyperpigmentation, scarring, sun damage, blackheads, or other skin care concerns, microdermabrasion could be a great procedure for you. Our specialists would love to answer any questions you may have during the treatment.
