What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion, often referred to as microderm, is a popular skincare treatment that takes away some or all of the outermost skin cells, which are dead, to expose the younger, living skin below. The treatment is appropriate for any color or type of skin, and it’s gentle enough to preserve natural pigmentation and not leave scars.
The most popular and effective method for microdermabrasion uses fine crystals to exfoliate the skin.
The stainless-steel handpiece on the devices we use sends a gentle stream of crystals toward the skin and vacuums off the removed dead skin cells and excess particles. Our Dermaglow® microdermabrasion equipment allows the crystals to come out only in contact with the skin, so your treatment is clean and hygienic.
What Can Microdermabrasion Treat?
Microdermabrasion can be an excellent solution for a wide range of skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin damaged by ultraviolet radiation
- Acne and acne scars
- Excess oil
- Blackheads and whiteheads
- Enlarged pores
Microdermabrasion also helps to thicken collagen in the skin, which results in a younger-looking complexion. Collagen is a protein that makes skin appear taut and smooth. It’s abundant in the skin when you’re young, but production declines as we age, resulting in a looser, uneven look.
What Is a Microdermabrasion Session Like?
Known as the “lunchtime facial,” microdermabrasion is not considered painful and requires no anesthetic. While post-procedure side effects are minimal, clients may have a pinkish skin tone and feel like they have a mild sunburn after a treatment. These effects usually disappear within a few hours or up to a day, depending on the degree of abrasion applied during the session. Clients may also feel that their skin is dry afterward, so a good moisturizer and sunscreen are recommended post treatment to protect your skin.
What Happens After Microdermabrasion?
The freshly exposed skin cells will continue to age naturally and will eventually bear the marks of the passage of time, as well as damage from the sun, environment, and other factors, such as acne outbreaks. The frequency of microdermabrasion treatments necessary to maintain an ongoing look of health and vitality can be discussed at an initial consultation.
Are There Skin-Rejuvenating Options Beyond Microdermabrasion?
Clients who want to ReFresh their look can also choose laser skin rejuvenation, chemical peels, dermaplaning, microneedling with SkinPen® and PRP, HydraFacial®, and more. A range of treatments is available, because our clients have a range of cosmetic skin conditions they would like to see addressed, as well as a wide variety of aesthetic goals.
