Medical Microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment and will makes skin look younger softer and more radiant. It does this by cleaning the pores and stimulating new collagen growth. The effects are immediate.
Crystals are directed at the skin and usually removed by a vacuum process. It is quite similar to sand blasting. The treatment is gradual and progressive with each session. It is often combined with collagen stimulating products and skin peels.
The best part of the treatment is that it is painless and has no “downtime” which means that you can have the treatment in your lunch hour and return to work in the afternoon.
Are You a Candidate For Microdermabrasion?
Good candidates for microdermabrasion are individuals with acne prone or blotchy skin, and those with small scars, fine lines, keratoses, large pores or white spots. If you have sun damage or uneven texture and would like to improve the condition of your skin, you are also a candidate for microdermabrasion.
What to Expect During a Treatment?
The treatments typically last 20 to 30 minutes for the face. If your treatment includes the neck and upper chest area, it may last up to an hour. A normal course of microdermabrasion treatments varies between 4 to 8 at approximately 2 week intervals. Most patients actually feel and see a difference just after one or two treatments but schedule additional treatments to increase this improvement.
