The outer layers of the skin become damaged due to these environmental and physical stressors, as well as the passing of time. The result is skin that appears sullen and dull, lacking the vigor, natural glow, and vitality of your youth. Crow’s feet, wrinkles, light scarring from acne, and sun spots can also develop due to the above factors.

Get youthful skin with microdermabrasion

To improve the detrimental effects of the sun’s rays, exposure to polluting environments, physical and emotional stressors, and the passing of time, consider undergoing a microdermabrasion treatment. Microdermabrasion involves the exfoliation of the outermost layer of the skin to remove dead skin cells and debris. This reveals a fresher, brighter complexion, and also promotes the growth of new, healthier skin cells. After several treatments, microdermabrasion can also improve the rebuilding of collagen and elastin in the skin.

Is microdermabrasion safe?

When conducted by a skilled professional, microdermabrasion is an extremely safe procedure with little to no side effects or downtime. Microdermabrasion is a virtually painless procedure. Those undergoing microdermabrasion report a warming sensation and compare the treatment as similar to a facial. Following a microdermabrasion treatment, the skin will be more sensitive to sunlight, so patients should take care to apply sunscreen and keep the skin well hydrated. Your microdermabrasion technician can help suggest a good after-care procedure for your skin following treatment.

A non-surgical way to improve the skin

Many women believe that the only solution to improve their skin is costly, invasive surgical procedures. But microdermabrasion is an incredibly cost-effective, non-surgical procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of the skin over several treatments. In fact, this procedure causes so few side effects and is so convenient that it’s often considered a “lunchtime” procedure. Most microdermabrasion treatments are effective in under an hour with no downtime or recovery time necessary.

Am I a good candidate for microdermabrasion?

If you’re unhappy with your skin tone due to aging, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, dullness or sun spots, microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment to improve your skin. Microdermabrasion treatments improve the texture, tone and feel of the skin for a more youthful, natural glow and vitality that cannot be achieved from over-the-counter drugstore skincare products.
