Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that has successfully renewed patients’ skin since being introduced as a skincare treatment in 1996. With microdermabrasion, your practitioner gently “sands” your skin with a minimally abrasive tool to exfoliate the uneven, thicker outer layer of surface skin.
Microdermabrasion can renew your skin’s overall texture and tone, as well as treat, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, and other skin concerns. This procedure can also stimulate collagen growth.
There are two main types of microdermabrasion. Both methods exfoliate the outer layer of skin and stimulate skin renewal and collagen production. Skin with abundant collagen is youthful, smooth, and taut.
Crystal microdermabrasion uses a device like a miniature sandblaster to stream gently exfoliating, microparticle crystals across the skin. Simultaneously, a vacuum attachment suctions the microparticles, as well as the exfoliated and dead skin cells, back into the machine.
Another form of microdermabrasion utilizes a diamond-tipped wand for exfoliation. The abrasive wand surface gently sands the skin’s surface. This approach is excellent for more sensitive areas, such as around your eyes. This method also uses a vacuum mechanism to suction away dead skin cells.
Microdermabrasion at The Med Spot utilizes both crystal microparticle exfoliation and diamond-tip exfoliation. We believe this combination provides optimal results
During treatments, patients report feeling sensations like a vibrating massage, mild scratching, and mild suction. This is not a painful procedure, either before or after. No anesthesia, nor numbing agent, is necessary to undergo microdermabrasion.
Any side effects from the treatment, such as redness or swelling, usually pass after a few hours. There is no downtime after the procedure, but your skin will be dry and flaky for several days afterward. Your doctor or health care professional may have recommendations for special products to treat this dryness and to enhance and prolong the treatment’s results.
For 25 years, microdermabrasion has safely helped most skin types and colors renew their skin’s tone and texture.
Microdermabrasion can help you with:
With no pain, no downtime, and very little time invested, microdermabrasion can completely refresh the look of your skin. Microdermabrasion can also gradually improve various skin issues that would usually require much more elaborate and expensive treatments. Your results can be quite long-lasting as well, depending upon how many treatments you undergo. You may decide to have two treatments per month initially, then cut back to just once a month for maintenance.
