Microdermabrasion treatments are an effective way to improve the look and feel of the skin with virtually no downtime. This non-invasive skin treatment buffs away dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin to reveal luminous, fresh-looking surfaces.

Typically, microdermabrasions are performed on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands to reveal softer, rejuvenated skin.

How Microdermabrasion Works

Dead skin cells can build up on the outermost layer of the skin, resulting in dark spots, acne, fine lines and more.

A dermatologist uses a special tool that shoots tiny crystals onto the surface of the skin, delicately buffs the skin, and then gently vacuums up the crystals and dead skin.

Removing the top layer triggers the body to think a minor injury has occurred on the skin, so it rushes new, healthy cells to the area, improving overall appearance and texture.

Microdermabrasion Effects

With the dead layer of skin gone, new cells are revealed and minor blemishes, lines and discoloration are reduced, leaving the skin looking refreshed and feeling soft and supple.

Results become apparent after one microdermabrasion. Multiple treatments given over a period of time increase the beneficial effects of the treatments.

Risks of Microdermabrasion

After a microdermabrasion treatment, some swelling may occur. Skin could also feel tight and dry due to the loss of moisture that occurred during the process.

To protect new, healthy skin cells from damage, avoid exposure to sunlight, apply any creams or lotions prescribed by your dermatologist and avoid others that may irritate the skin.
