Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical way to freshen and rejuvenate the skin on your face. It uses microparticles, or a diamond-tipped wand, to remove the thicker, uneven outer layer of your skin and stimulate new skin growth. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration and sun damage. This technique also helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger-looking complexion. Collagen is a protein in your skin that makes skin appear taut and smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin. There is almost no discomfort in microdermabrasion, meaning you won't need a topical or local anesthetic and there is no recovery or downtime. Microdermabrasion is a safe, non-surgical approach to skin care when used alone, or in combination with other treatments. In addition to the face, microdermabrasion can be successfully performed on the neck, chest, hands, chest, back, elbows, feet - just about anywhere! It is also beneficial for patients with darker skin types.
Required Number of treatments
To achieve good results, several treatments 10-12 are recommended. Treatments are typically scheduled two weeks apart. You will experience a progressive improvement throughout your treatment program.
