Great for dull skin, wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, stretch marks and scarring. Microdermabrasion is a general term for the application of tiny rough grains to buff away the surface layer of the skin. It’s usually done to the face, chest, neck, arms or hands. If you are unhappy with age spots, acne scars, stretch marks, fine wrinkles or flaking skin, you might want to consider Microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion has been used in Europe for years. Now this exciting procedure is the number two non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States. It is helping men and women everywhere experience remarkable improvements in skin texture regardless of skin color. Microdermabrasion treatments combined with our skin care products are a safe, comprehensive approach to skin care.
IS MICRODERMABRASION SAFE?Yes. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive. The procedure only removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells to reveal the fresher, younger cells beneath. Regardless of your skin’s condition, fine lines and age spots may be erased and acne scars and stretch marks will become less obvious.
WHAT IS TREATMENT LIKE?Microdermabrasion treatments are not aggressive; they are slow and progressive, and best of all, they work! Most patients find Microdermabrasion treatments to be quite relaxing. The treatment is like a “superficial skin polishing” using micro-crystals vacuumed through a delicate hand piece. In as little as thirty-five minutes, this gentle, abrasive technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Following the treatment, we may treat your skin with specially formulated creams to further soften and moisturize your skin. Treatments are applied through a course of weekly or bi-weekly sessions, ranging from 2 to 12 weeks.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?Immediately! After your first treatment your skin will have a fresh pink glow. It will look healthier and feel smoother and softer. Your improvement will continue throughout your treatment program. Call our office to schedule your Microdermabrasion treatment plan today.
WHY CHOOSE MICRODERMABRASION?Microdermabrasion takes less time than other more invasive procedures. There is no recovery period, no discomfort and you can resume normal activities immediately.
WHO ARE THE BEST CANDIDATES?The best candidates for Microdermabrasion are those patients that:
- Cannot afford to take time off for healing from a chemical peel or laser procedure.
- Don’t want to put off their outdoor activities like golf, tennis or skiing.
- Have skin sensitivities to chemicals or make-up.
- Have acne-prone skin that has not responded well to other acne remedies.
- Are younger and whose skin is showing early signs of aging.
MAINTAINING THE RESULTSMaintaining healthy looking skin is a daily task. Always wear SPF of at least 15 to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Keep your skin moist and fresh with daily cleansing and moisturizing using specially formulated skin care products. Ask your skin care specialist about recommendations for your skin care products. We recommend a monthly touch-up treatment to help maintain your results.
