Find out how this simple cosmetic treatment can improve the tone and texture of your skin.
While most people want to have younger-looking skin, they often don't want to undergo invasive measures to get treatment. But what if we told you that you could get your skin more radiant while improving lines, wrinkles, scars, sun damage and other issues by simply turning to a dermatologist for microdermabrasion? Find out more about microdermabrasion and whether it's the right option for you.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
This cosmetic service is one of the best ways to buff away the outer layer of dry, dead skin to uncover healthier, younger-looking skin underneath. When microdermabrasion removes these outer layers, it also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which help to keep skin supple and firm.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?
There are many healthy men and women that can benefit from getting microdermabrasion. It might be time to consider this treatment if you are dealing with,
- Age spots
- Uneven skin tone
- Lines and wrinkles
- Superficial scars
- Enlarged pores
Since this procedure isn't invasive, it can't tackle more serious issues such as severe folds, wrinkles or deep scars. You'll want to talk to your dermatologist about other laser or surgical treatment options in these situations.
What Should I Expect During Treatment?
During this non-invasive procedure, a device is placed directly over the skin, where micro-crystals are activated to buff away dead skin and reveal healthy, vibrant skin that is firmer and offers a more even skin tone.
Before your treatment begins, your dermatologist will schedule a consultation with you so that they can make sure that your treatment goals are realistic and aligned with what microdermabrasion can offer. If we determine that you are a great candidate for treatment, we will also discuss how many treatment sessions you will need over the next few months to see the results you want.
Those with severe issues will require more sessions than those with only minor problems. The procedure itself can take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour.
If you are looking for a simple, non-invasive treatment that can give you excellent results and a youthful glow, microdermabrasion could be right for you. Call your dermatologist to learn more.
