What is Microdermabrasion?

It has been commonly referred to as “the lunch time peel” because the procedure takes only minutes to perform and most people can return to regular activities or work immediately.

As a first step for those who have not tried any skin exfoliation procedures, a medical microdermabrasion is an excellent way to see how the removal of thickened and dead skin cells will instantly improve texture, tone and color. Microdermabrasion is a skin revitalizing procedure that uses exfoliation to smooth lines, scars and wrinkles.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

This action causes little or no discomfort while it gently removes the outer layer of the skin. By repeating this process over the course of several weeks or months, the younger, softer skin moves to the surface, revealing significant textural and color changes.

Dull congested skin is immediately improved with microdermabrasion. It also improves non-inflammatory acne, mild acne scarring, stretch marks and helps sun damaged skin in need of rejuvenation. More intensive treatments for facial rejuvenation may include Photofacials, MixtoLaser Resurfacing, Glycolic or TCA chemical peels.

Who Should Not Use Microdermabrasion?

Anyone with cystic or inflamed acne should not undergo microdermabrasion. If you suffer from aggravated Rosacea, Eczema, Herpes and various other active or any chronic skin disease, you should follow the advice of a physician. Microdermabrasion is a wonderfully effective procedure when used for the right problems with a medically trained technician.
