Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular cosmetic skin treatments. This procedure is relatively non-invasive with remarkable results. It eliminates minor skin issues and combats early signs of aging. This treatment promotes the regeneration of new, healthy cells and increased collagen production. It instantly creates a smooth, even-looking complexion with a bright, healthy glow. Best of all, this procedure entails little to no downtime with no side effects.
Problems That Microdermabrasion Can Address
If you have dull, uneven and unhealthy-looking skin or signs of aging, this procedure will brighten your complexion as well as create a more overall youthful appearance. Who doesn’t want that?! This treatment addresses dark spots, moderate acne scars, sun damage and clogged pores. It is gentle and a highly effective form of blackhead removal.
How It Works
During microdermabrasion, the treatment polishes away dead cells using amonium oxide crystals which is customizable to your needs and tolerance. After the polishing is complete (dead skin is removed), a light SPF moisturizer is applied to your skin for both protection and hydration. Microdermabrasion treatments can last between 30 minutes to an hour.
Recovery and Aftercare
After your treatment, it’s important to minimize exposure to sunlight for the first two weeks due to increased photo-sensitivity. If you go outside, we recommend you wearing a hat as well as a mild, light SPF. Strenuous exercise should also be avoided during the first 24 hours to prevent excessive sweating and skin irritation. Talk to your esthetician to see what skincare regimen will help protect your investment, as well.
The best results are often gained after several treatments. Repeat treatments foster an even greater increases in collagen production which address signs of aging (fine lines and wrinkles). Microdermabrasion can also even out skin tone and texture. People often see impressive improvements after five or more microdermabrasion treatments. When purchasing a series of treatments, we recommend them being spaced out two to four weeks apart. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
We also have an Enhanced Microdermabrasion which combines our exclusive mild chemical peeling agents with a microdermabrasion treatment. This combination provides a much more dramatic result than microdermabrasion alone. EM treatments aid in the reduction of age spots, fine lines and wrinkles.
New Age Peel
New Age Peels provide an even and controlled shedding of damaged skin cells by combining a microdermabrasion and a superficial TCA peel. This pre-peel exfoliation allows the TCA solution to penetrate deeper to damaged skin cells within the upper dermis. We vary and customize the depth of our TCA peels to the specific condition of your skin and results you are looking for. This procedure involves painting an acid solution on the skin. Due to the exfoliation and regeneration of the skin, you will experience some post treatment discoloration and sloughing. You can expect this to continue for 4-7 days following your treatment.
