What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses a diamond tip to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier looking skin. Microdermabrasion also stimulates the underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin's appearance.
How does Wet/Dry Microdermabrasion work?
Gentle vacuum pressure lift skin to the diamond tip providing an effective yet gentle exfoliation for more comfortable service than typical microdermabrasion devices.
Risks and Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a safe, non-surgical, "lunch hour" procedure that provides many benefits. Microdermabrasion reduces or eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging; it improves the appearance of acne scars and other light scarring; and it gives skin of all colors and types a fresh, healthy-looking glow. It does all this with virtually no side effects. It is an excellent treatment for skin that is sensitive to chemicals.
Is the Microdermabrasion Procedure Painful?
The microdermabrasion procedure exfoliates dead cells from the skin's surface. While it is not painful, the treatment can cause a slight warming sensation as the abrasive microdermabrasion diamond tip gently sloughs away old and damaged layers of skin. Some patients have likened the experience to having a facial massage. After a microdermabrasion treatment, the newly revealed layer of skin is usually more sensitive and requires extra protection from the sun. You should not feel uncomfortable, but you should be particularly careful about wearing sunscreens. Applying moisturizing creams to hydrate and calm the skin can also prevent any potential irritation.
