Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses tiny crystals or other exfoliating surfaces to help remove the superficial layer of dead skin cells. When you remove the stratum corneum, or the top layer of skin, the body interprets it as an injury. It then quickly replaces the lost skin cells with new, healthy ones. The skin is left smoother and cleaner than ever. Microdermabrasion is a perfect, non-aggressive way of treating uneven texture. This is also an excellent procedure to pre-treat your skin before a chemical peel or laser treatment.
How It Works
Microderm tips allow for constant airflow through the bristles. This unique feature causes the skin to be gently drawn up among the bristles which results in a more effective yet less irritating treatment. Similarly, the airflow throughout the bristles allows the vacuum pressure to be more evenly distributed which leads to deeper, more efficient suctioning.
What To Expect
We start by cleaning the face with our three-step cleansing process. Patients with moderate to severe textural problems or who want a more aggressive treatment will be dermaplaned as well. As the wand passes over the skin, you will feel a very mild suctioning as the impurities get vacuumed away. Several passes may be done with more attention given to trouble areas. Extractions can be performed if necessary. Because the skin is now primed to accept treatments at a much deeper level, your next step is crucial. There are several things to choose from: you can have a laser procedure with more effective results, a chemical peel with higher than average absorption, a serum infusion for an intense treatment, or simply continue with product application that will absorb deeper than usual. Microdermabrasion takes approximately 30 minutes for the face. This procedure can be followed by extractions if needed, add on mask, and hand massage.
Length Of Results
Skin will feel smooth and supple for 2-3 weeks after the procedure. Patients receiving treatments for texture issues will notice a difference immediately, especially when applying products or makeup. The skin will continue to improve with additional treatments.
Number of Treatments
Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, most patients will receive a treatment every 4-6 weeks. If you are trying to correct a problem, more aggressive treatments every 2-3 weeks may be necessary. Conversely, if you are using excellent products and getting other anti-aging procedures, you may only need a microdermabrasion every 2-3 months.
