Beautiful skin once achieved must be maintained, and consistent microdermabrasion treatments are an integral part of a skincare maintenance plan.  The frequent removal of dead skin cells promotes the turnover of healthy new cells, which allows skincare products to reach the deeper layers of the epidermis, effectuating more noticeable results.

HOW DOES MICRODERMABRASION WORK?

Microdermabrasion accelerates skin rejuvenation by gently removing dry, damaged skin.  Following this exfoliation, high-power suction draws impurities out of the pores and cleanses the skin’s surface.  Since open pores receive skincare products more readily, topicals such as vitamin C and lactic acid are applied in the final step.

If you prefer to have our skincare professionals customize your microdermabrasion treatment with the selection of a serum that is tailored to benefit your skin type and manage your skin concerns, you might consider a DiamondGlow or HydraFacial procedure.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM MICRODERMABRASION?

Most patients benefit from regularly scheduled exfoliation and deep cleansing.  This non-invasive procedure diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, reduces the appearance of pores, improves texture, and brightens skin tone.  Microdermabrasion is often part of an acne management regimen.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MICRODERMABRASION?

After cleansing the face, the precise diamond tip is methodically moved along the treatment area to exfoliate the outer layers of skin.  Suction removes the dead skin and clears clogged pores.  There is no discomfort, and patients typically enjoy the process.  The application of topical products and sunscreen completes the procedure.  A full treatment can take 50-60 minutes.

Microdermabrasion does not require any downtime; you may schedule the procedure during your lunch hour and immediately return to your normal activities.  Due to increased blood circulation, the skin might look a bit pink following the treatment, but this usually fades within a few hours.

Patients generally notice greater improvement with each microdermabrasion, and while one treatment is beneficial, we recommend a treatment every four weeks for smoother, brighter, clearer, visibly nourished skin.
