Q. What is Microdermabrasion?

A. Aging and over-exposure to the sun takes its toll on your skin's youthful appearance. To help repair the damage, we offer microdermabrasion. This popular non-invasive procedure helps smooth out fine wrinkles, decrease blotchiness, and minimize shallow acne scars.

Q. How does Microdermabrasion work?

A. Using a device similar to a fine sandblaster, the treatment mixes gentle abrasion with suction to stimulate collagen production and remove the dead, the outer layer of the skin. With these dead skin cells removed, your skin will immediately feel smoother, fresher, healthier, and younger looking.

Q. What can Microdermabrasion be used to treat?

A. Microdermabrasion helps treat:

  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Dull, aging skin
  • Some stretch marks
  • Blackheads and pimples
  • Dark spots
  • Keratosis Pilaris(lesions on the outer skin layer)
  • Fine wrinkles and lines
  • Acne scares and other forms of scarring

Q. Can anyone undergo Microdermabrasion ?

A. Microdermabrasion is not recommended for people with:

  • keloid or raised scarring
  • Skin cancer
  • Precancerous actinic keratoses lesions
  • Skin growths
  • Recent sunburn

Q. How soon will I notice the results?

A. Most patients notice their skin seems smoother, tighter, and softer immediately after treatment. You should, however, expect your skin to look slightly pink and be a little more sensitive than usual. For deeper Microdermabrasion treatments, your skin may my slightly red and puffy for a day or two.
