What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating treatment that is beneficial for sluggish skin. Our Diamond Wand microdermabrasion includes multiple passes to gently yet effectively remove the outer layers of the skin to reveal a more youthful and smoother complexion. Microdermabrasion is a type of facial where the outer layers of the skin are sloughed off to reveal a more youthful and smoother complexion. This procedure is followed by extractions and is completed with a customized application of ingredients designed to give your skin a soft polished appearance. As one of the most requested skin treatments, it combats the signs of aging and helps to diminish or erase acne scars.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
As one of the easiest and safest facials, microdermabrasion offers the following benefits:
- Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
- Decreases scars from acne or other trauma to the skin
- Softens the look and feel of the skin
- Reduces pore size
- Lessens the appearance of age spots (hyperpigmentation)
- Assists with more effective medical grade product penetration
Is Microdermabrasion Right for Me?
If you think your skin has lost its luster and looks dull, or if you have mild acne or acne scarring, you may be right for microdermabrasion. This treatment is performed in the office and is usually successful with only a handful of appointments depending on the extent of the skin imperfections.
How is Microdermabrasion Performed?
The treatment is done using microdermabrasion system with a hand piece placed against the skin. A diamond tipped hand-piece will exfoliate the targeted area while the system creates a mild suction that removes the dead skin cells.
The result is healthier skin from new skin cells that have higher levels of collagen and elastin that help you look younger and more radiant. Typically, patients get multiple treatments spaced out three weeks to four weeks apart. Each treatment is 50 minutes long.
What is the Recovery from Microdermabrasion Like?
The recovery depends on the extent of the treatment. Most patients receive deep exfoliation which results in drier, tighter skin immediately afterwards. We always recommend a few days of rest to let your skin heal and avoid any makeup for the first couple of days following the treatments, as well as stay out of the sun for the first week. Any sensations subside within a few hours of the treatment.

What Do I Do Next?
