Microdermabrasion Q & A
What is microdermabrasion?
Previously known as “Silk Peel” & “Diamond Glow”
Microdermabrasion uses a hand-held, motorized device to slough away old, dead cells that dull your complexion and clog your pores. The device uses fine crystals or a diamond tip to smooth away imperfections, including brown spots and blackheads.
How does microdermabrasion improve my skin’s appearance?
The exfoliation provided by microdermabrasion boosts your production of collagen, a structural protein that gives skin its strength and resiliency. Youthful skin has plentiful amounts of collagen, but with age, production naturally decreases. Stimulating collagen production through microdermabrasion restores your levels, improving skin laxity, and reducing the uneven texture.
Microdermabrasion also sloughs away the dull, outermost layer of your skin that dims your complexion. As a result, you get smooth, younger-looking skin that’s only possible with professional treatments.
What types of skin improvements will I experience with microdermabrasion?
You experience a revitalization of your look and boost to your normal skin care routine with microdermabrasion. The benefits to your skin’s health and appearance are:
- Enhanced smoothness and more even pigmentation
- Improved look of age spots and blackheads
- Reduced appearance of oversized pores
- Reduced appearance of stretch marks and acne scars
- Extraction of impurities from pores
- Less hyperpigmentation
Microdermabrasion involves no chemicals and is a good option for men and women with sensitive skin.
How many microdermabrasion treatments will I need?
The practitioners at Integrative Dermatology & Laser Spa customize your microdermabrasion treatment plan to your skin’s specific needs and your aesthetic goals. Initially, you may benefit from bi-monthly treatments. Over time, you switch to a maintenance regimen that involves sessions scheduled just once every one to two months.
Do microdermabrasion treatments hurt?
You experience a deep level of exfoliation with microdermabrasion, but don’t suffer any pain. The treatment feels like a deep facial massage and lasts just about 30 minutes.
Do I need to schedule downtime following microdermabrasion?
Following microdermabrasion treatments, you may have some temporary redness and slight skin sensitivity. You don’t need to take time off work or other activities, however, to recover. A regular sunscreen regimen is essential for healthy skin and is particularly important following microdermabrasion treatments as your skin is temporarily extra sensitive to UV rays.
