What is microdermabrasion? Microdermabrasion is a technique that uses a hand held device that sprays tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin. It polishes the skin and stimulates the production of skin cells and collagen, giving the skin an overall fresh, healthy-looking glow.
Microdermabrasion is a safe, quick, and effective procedure and no anesthetic or downtime is required. You can even have it done on your lunch hour and return to work after lunch. However, as with other skin rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.
A board-certified plastic surgeon can best recommend the number of microdermabrasion treatments that are needed to address your particular needs and goals.
Microdermabrasion is just one of the many non-surgical treatments that can be used to improve the appearance of your skin and reduce the signs of aging. Has your skin been damaged by the sun? Do you have scarring from acne or some other type of injury to the skin on your face? Do you have discoloration or irregularities in the surface of the skin on your face? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, you may be a good candidate for microdermabrasion.
Other non-surgical treatments that can be used to improve the appearance of your skin and reduce the signs of aging on your face include Botox® Cosmetic injections, facial fillers such as Juvéderm® and Restylane® and facial peels. After a thorough evaluation of your skin and your medical history, your plastic surgeon can recommend the best treatment or combination of treatments to help you look and feel your very best.
