What you need to know about Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can improve the appearance of aging facial skin and sun damage. This surgical procedure can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, age spots, sun damage, and acne scars, producing a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. It achieves this by removing the outer surface of the skin, where the dead skin cells lie which also helps when treating enlarged pores. Most patients require more than one session.

Individuals who are looking to improve the appearance of age- or sun-damaged skin may be good candidates for microdermabrasion. As with all types of cosmetic surgery, good health and realistic expectations are important. Patients should understand that the goal of microdermabrasion is not to produce perfect skin but rather to improve the appearance of the skin as much as possible. During your consultation, our esthetician will consider such factors as skin type and medical history in order to determine if microdermabrasion is right for you.


Microdermabrasion Process

Is typically administered in the office setting and can take thirty minutes to an hour to complete. During the procedure, a device is passed over the skin which emits tiny crystals that gently abrade the skin and remove the dead outer layer. There is minimal recovery or downtime associated with microdermabrasion. Side effects are few, though the skin may appear slightly red for a few hours after treatment and feel flushed for about a day. Most patients are able to immediately return to work and other normal activities after microdermabrasion, though the skin will need to be protected from the sun for a period of time.

MicrodermabrasionRisks and Complications

Microdermabrasion is generally a safe and effective treatment for a variety of skin concerns, but like any cosmetic procedure, it does come with some risks and potential complications. Some individuals may experience temporary side effects such as dehydrated skin or flaking skin following the treatment. It is important to follow the post-treatment care instructions provided by your esthetician to minimize these effects.

While microdermabrasion can improve a range of skin problems including rough texture and uneven tone, individuals with severe skin conditions such as acne or rosacea may not be ideal candidates for this treatment. It is important to discuss your medical history and any existing skin conditions with your esthetician before undergoing microdermabrasion to ensure it is the right option for you.
