Younger-looking skin can be difficult to achieve, but thanks to the innovative microdermabrasion technology it is now a possibility for individuals struggling with skin texture, pigmentation, and skin damage. Microdermabrasion is a unique treatment that resurfaces your skin, increases collagen production, and promotes new skin growth.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion treatments use a noninvasive device to sand the skin and remove the damaged outer layer. This highly sought-after skin treatment is used to treat scars, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks. Microdermabrasion can provide you with more youthful-looking skin by increasing the body’s collagen. Collagen is a protein that aids in smooth, strong, firm skin. When collagen production decreases as you age, the skin can appear loose and textured. Thanks to microdermabrasion, you can achieve smooth, strong skin once again.

How Does it Work?

Microdermabrasion treatments use a wand to remove the outer layer of skin from your treatment area. Your outer skin takes the brunt of the damage from skin irritants, affecting its texture and appearance. This technology stimulates new skin growth and collagen production.

Microdermabrasion Procedures

There are two microdermabrasion treatments for you to choose from. One uses loose crystals to exfoliate the skin and the other uses a diamond-tipped wand. Both procedures last around 30 minutes. The procedures can cause a scratching, vibrating, or suctioning sensation on the skin.

Loose-Crystal Microdermabrasion

The first approach uses a hand-held device that pushes loose micro-crystals across your skin. A vacuum is attached and suctions the loose crystals back into the machine along with dead skin and debris.

Diamond-Tipped Microdermabrasion

The second approach uses a diamond tip wand with the jewels attached. This device is meticulously glided across your skin by a skincare expert to exfoliate the area.

How Long Does Treatment and Recovery Take?

Your microdermabrasion treatment will take around 30 minutes to complete. After your treatment there is no recovery time, allowing you to immediately resume your daily activities. Your skincare specialist may recommend certain skincare products to help maintain your newly glowing skin.

How Quickly Might I See the Results of the Treatment on My Face?

Normally, two to four weeks after your initial microdermabrasion treatment you will be able to see visible results. Optimal changes in your skin may require a series of treatments. Concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, dark spots, and scarring may require more sessions.

How Often Should I Schedule Treatments?

Many individuals begin by scheduling two microdermabrasion treatments each month. This initial treatment plan can help you kickstart your skin health by removing dead skin cells, boosting collagen production, and encouraging new skin growth.

The number of sessions your skin requires will depend on the amount of skin damage that you have. The best way to understand how often you should schedule appointments is by consulting with a skincare professional. A professional will assess your skin, medical history, and goals and help you decide on the right treatment plan for your unique needs.
