What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin exfoliation treatment that uses micro crystals to lightly peel the skin, encouraging the growth of new tissue. During treatment, the uppermost layer of the skin is gently removed, eliminating any dead skin cells, impurities, or debris there.
This process involves the use of absolutely no chemicals, needles, or lasers, so patients get beautiful skin rejuvenation with virtually no downtime. At our medical spa, we use this treatment to improve the appearance of:
How Does it Work?
During treatment, our practice’s medical esthetician, Deanna Bain, aims a small stream of crystals at the area through a microdermabrasion handpiece. As these crystals hit the skin, they gently scrape away the dead skin cells and impurities at its surface. The handpiece gently extracts the debris, as well as the remaining crystals.
These crystals don’t just help remove impurities from the uppermost layer of the skin—they also help jumpstart the body’s process of collagen creation and tissue regeneration. Collagen is one of the skin’s most important structural proteins, providing it with extra volume, fullness, and strength. As more collagen forms, the skin becomes smoother, tighter, and more youthful looking. Because it takes time for collagen creation to take place, patients gradually see the full results of their microdermabrasion over the weeks following treatment.
Typically, microdermabrasion procedures take between 30 to 60 minutes to complete. While patients see some visible results after one treatment, usually 5 to 12 treatments (spaced two to three weeks apart) are needed to see the full potential of the treatment.
