What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that combines precision exfoliation with Dermal infusion to address patient-specific skin conditions. Operating on a closed-loop vacuum system, the Microdermabrasion’s diamond treatment head exfoliates the skin while delivering a topical dermaceutical at a controlled intensity. Microdermabrasion stimulates new cell growth and addresses your specific skin condition, giving your skin the revitalization you want.
Is it safe?
Microdermabrasion is a simple, non-invasive procedure performed by a medical aesthetician. The risks of traditional microdermabrasion are eliminated by Microdermabrasion’s crystal-free technology and patients experience little to no discomfort.
How does Microdermabrasion DermalInfusion differ from traditional microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion DermalInfusion differs from microdermabrasion in that simultaneously your skin is being exfoliated while at the same time a dermal infusion topical is being delivered to your skin. It is a very soothing treatment that offers noticeable, immediate outcomes with lasting skin improvement and you are able to return to normal activities at once.
How long does the procedure take?
Treatments typically last about 30 - 45 minutes. Plus, because Microdermabrasion delivers a dermaceutical during treatment, your post-treatment protocol is quick and easy.
Do you have a specific topical for my skin condition?
Microdermabrasion addresses the most common skin conditions with topicals for hydrating, skin lightening, and acne.
What should I expect after the procedure?
Your skin will have a warm, pinkish glow that will usually fade in about 30 minutes, leaving your skin looking healthy and renewed. Your skin will feel like silk.
Will I miss work or have to alter my social schedule?
Microdermabrasion can easily be performed on your lunch hour so you can return immediately to your normal activities.
What will I have to do following the procedure?
Your medical aesthetician will recommend medical skin care products and sunscreen you can use at home to enhance and maintain results.
How long does it take to see results?
While you may see visible results after the first treatment, lasting and more significant results will be seen after 4 to 6 treatments spaced 7 to 10 days apart, supplemented by a daily post-care routine.
Does it hurt?
You may feel a mild exfoliation and tightening that leaves the skin feeling healthy and smooth. The moisture of the topicals also leaves your skin with a cool, refreshed feeling.
