What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that uses micro crystals to exfoliate the skin, encouraging the growth of new tissue. During treatment, the uppermost layer of the skin is gently removed, eliminating any dead skin cells, impurities, or debris there. This process involves the use of absolutely no chemicals, needles, or lasers, so patients get beautiful skin rejuvenation with virtually no downtime.
This treatment can be used to improve the appearance of:
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines
How Does it Work?
During treatment, our practice’s medical esthetician, Deanna Bain, aims a small stream of crystals at the treatment area through a microdermabrasion handpiece. As these crystals hit the skin, they gently scrape away the dead skin cells and impurities present at its surface. The handpiece gently sucks up this debris, as well as the remaining crystals.
These crystals don’t just help remove impurities from the uppermost layer of the skin — they also help jumpstart the body’s process of collagen creation and tissue regeneration. Collagen is one of the skin’s most important structural proteins, providing it with extra volume, fullness, and strength. As more collagen forms, the skin becomes smoother, tighter, and more youthful looking. Because it takes time for collagen creation to take place, patients with gradually see the full results of their microdermabrasion over the weeks following treatment.
Typically, microdermabrasion procedures take between 30-60 minutes to complete. While patients can see some visible results after one treatment, between 5-12 treatments spaced 2-3 weeks apart are usually needed to see the full potential of the treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Nearly anyone interested in renewing and cleansing his or her skin is a potential candidate for a microdermabrasion treatment. Ideal candidates must be in good health and have realistic expectations for the procedure.
