Microdermabrasion is a process that removes dead and dry skin through the use of tiny crystals. The crystals gently exfoliate the skin then suction is applied to remove impurities. Once the dull, damaged skin is removed brand new skin is revealed, leaving your skin rejuvenated and your complexion brightened. Unlike dermabrasion, microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types and tones.
How Does It Work?
At Derma-Tech Medical Spa, we use an advanced diamond-tipped wand to gently resurface your skin. Though this process is generally very comfortable, the exfoliation is deep and long-lasting. A diamond-tipped wand is pulled across the surface of the skin to exfoliate while it simultaneously vacuums rough, dry, dead skin cells, exposing the new skin underneath. Multiple treatments are typically recommended for maximum results.
What Are The Benefits?
Microdermabrasion helps to improve the texture of your skin and even out your skin tone. After one treatment, your complexion will be brighter, and your face will feel smoother. It may also readily absorb moisture better than before allowing you to get more out of your at-home skincare products. In some cases, fine lines and mild wrinkles can be seen to disappear. Age spots, dull skin, and brown spots can all benefit from microdermabrasion treatments.
After a series of treatments, patients will see an improvement in acne ad possibly a reduction in the oiliness of the skin. Pore size may become less apparent, and some forms of mild damage can be lessened. Patients with dark discoloration from acne scars mayl see an evening out of their skin as the post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is gently exfoliated away over time.
Although microdermabrasion has many benefits and positive results, you shouldn’t expect more than it can achieve. Patients with severe acne may find that their skin becomes inflamed due to the simultaneous exfoliating and vacuuming process. Microdermabrasion isn’t effective on deep wrinkles, age lines or severe sun-damaged skin.
Microdermabrasion is ideal for patients seeking to brighten and smooth the complexion and combat the early-on signs of aging to maintain a healthy and fresh look. You may require a different procedure if you’re looking for significant anti-aging results. Your Derma-Tech specialist will help determine what’s right for you at the time of your initial consultation.
My first time for microdermabrasion, fillers and botox. Tina was a delight, she did the microdermabrasion. She explained every step and was pleasant and informative. Trish did my fillers and botox the next day. I was nervous when I went for my consult with her. She put me at ease right away. She helped me decide by giving me details and educating me on the different fillers. Never once did I feel pressured or uncomfortable. This is the first place I went. This is the only place i will go. Love it!!!
