WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?
It is a procedure that is performed in our office with a precision hand piece that directs a stream of very fine mist of microscopic aluminum oxide crystals , and mild suction where needed on the skin. The gently abrasive action exfoliates the outermost layers of the skin (epidermis). Your healthcare provider can control the power of the spray, from a gentle buffing of the skin to a deeper exfoliation where needed. . A full face treatment generally takes 20 to 40 minutes, and requires no anesthesia.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Following the treatment, your skin may appear slightly pink, like mild sunburn. Some patients say their face feels as though their skin has been deeply cleansed. It is possible for some mild peeling to occur. In the case of a deeper treatment level for more blemished or thicker skins, the skin will appear slightly red and tight for a few hours. Similar to the light peel, the procedure can improve fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and uneven skin tone. It treats blackheads, whiteheads, pigmentation (brown spots), and gives the skin a healthy-looking glow.
