Do you sometimes wish you had a more even skin tone? The solution may be simpler than you think. Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure that gently exfoliates surface layers of skin. One painless session with Derma-Tech Medical Spa takes less than an hour and has zero downtime.
A single treatment leaves your skin softer, smoother, radiant, and can even brighten the look of your skin. There are many benefits of microdermabrasion. The more regularly you use it, the more you will experience visible skin improvement.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a popular skin-revitalizing treatment. It works by using a very fine diamond-studded tip to remove the outermost layers of skin. Derma-Tech uses a crystal-free Diamond-Tome wand. Unlike the crystal system, Diamond-Tome does not produce particles that could be inhaled or blown into the eyes, making it a safer option for use around the eyes and lips.
This treatment improves the appearance of the skin by reducing fine lines, early sun damage, and may improve the appearance of many other superficial skin issues. Microdermabrasion is sometimes confused with Dermabrasion – but the two procedures are very different. Dermabrasion targets deeper acne scars, requires general anesthesia, and is typically performed by dermatologists.
What to Expect from Treatment
Before treatment, your Derma-Tech specialist will cleanse and prepare your skin for the procedure. Next, the Diamond-Tome wand will be used to gently exfoliate your skin while vacuuming the dead cells away. Finally, a protective cream will be used to soothe and moisturize your skin. It’s important to protect your newly exfoliated skin with sunscreen and use a good moisturizer to prevent dryness.
What Does Microdermabrasion Feel Like?
Microdermabrasion is often compared to the feeling of a cat licking your face, rough but gentle. Derma-Tech specialists can adjust the pressure and speed of the vacuum depending on the sensitivity of your skin.
The actual microdermabrasion procedure takes just 30-45 minutes and requires no needles or anesthetics. The total session time, including prep and cleansing, typically lasts no more than 60 minutes. Microdermabrasion treatments may be combined with a mask and facial massage, which can increase the total time. Compared to other more invasive resurfacing methods, microdermabrasion boasts quick recovery and comes with very little risk.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
A microdermabrasion treatment is the most thorough cleaning you can give your skin with immediately noticeable results. For patients on-the-go, this is the perfect skin care treatment to achieve a healthy, youthful glow in less than an hour. Your skin will look bright and feel buttery soft for several days and can be optimally maintained by cleansing daily and exfoliating weekly.
How Often Do I Need Treatment?
Typically the skin on our faces regenerates every 30 days, meaning microdermabrasion should be repeated for continued improvement, as the benefits are temporary. If you’re looking to address a specific skin problem, a series of treatments is most effective. The specialists at Derma-Tech Medical Spawill help you determine the best treatment schedule for your specific needs.
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!!!
