Microdermabrasion is a popular skin resurfacing procedure. There are a lot of advantages and benefits of this gentle treatment. When looking at microdermabrasion, it’s important to realize that the skin resurfacing procedure you choose should be tailored to meet the needs of your skin type as well as the skin condition that you are facing. That’s why it’s good to have the procedure performed by trained medical professionals who can first evaluate your skin to determine whether or not the treatment will work for you.

Why Choose Microdermabrasion?

Many people who undergo microdermabrasion do so because they are battling with the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and enlarged pores. The treatment has also shown to be useful for those who are dealing with acne scars.

The Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion does not come with the same downtime that often accompanies other skin revitalization procedures. In just a few days, most patients can get right back to their daily routine. After your treatment, our specialist will go over what steps you can take to keep your skin healthy and maintain your results.

It takes around seven days for new skin growth to begin. When this process starts, you’ll notice smoother, younger, and more even-looking skin.

The length of your treatment will vary depending on factors such as how large of an area you’re planning to treat. In addition, you will likely need multiple treatment sessions to get the best results. Patients often benefit from anywhere between five and 12 treatment sessions. Much like the length of your treatment time, the number of treatment sessions you will require will also depend on your personal needs. Each treatment session is generally spaced 2-3 weeks apart.

In addition to the noticeable skin rejuvenation you will experience with microdermabrasion, the treatment also comes with many other benefits. These include, but are not limited to:

• Non-Invasive
• Quick treatment time
• Little to no downtime
• No harsh chemicals

Because it is such a safe treatment, most people who want to improve the overall condition of their skin make good candidates for microdermabrasion. If you are unsure, we can help you find out if this is the right treatment for you during your initial consultation with us.
