What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a simple exfoliating treatment that helps reveal smoother, younger, and more evenly toned skin. Microdermabrasion is a gentle procedure that can address a number of common skin concerns, including:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull complexion
  • Dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines
  • Melasma 
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scars

Microdermabrasion treatments help rebuild the collagen in your skin resulting in a younger appearance. Removing the outer layers of the skin also helps rejuvenate your overall appearance as the skin heals. Microdermabrasion is frequently paired with anti-aging and skin-bleaching products to help them better penetrate the skin. 

What happens during microdermabrasion?

During the procedure, your doctor uses a small handheld device to exfoliate the top layer of your skin gently. Microdermabrasion doesn’t require any anesthesia and is typically completed in less than an hour. 

After the treatment, you may experience some temporary redness and swelling that goes away within a day. You’ll need to apply a skin moisturizer as well as a sunscreen to protect your skin and ensure you heal properly. Because microdermabrasion only treats the outer layers of the skin, recovery time is quick. 

How long before I see results?

Microdermabrasion requires a series of treatments for effective results. Most patients undergo between 5 and 16 treatments. Because the skin recovers quickly, you can receive treatments weekly. 

After a series of treatments, microdermabrasion reveals smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. During your consultation at Image Revolution Health and Wellness, your doctor helps you determine the right number of treatments for your desired results. 

After their series of treatments, many patients schedule periodic maintenance treatments to upkeep their results. Depending on the severity of your skin damage and at-home care, microdermabrasion provides noticeable, long-lasting results. 

Is microdermabrasion safe?

Microdermabrasion is a low-risk procedure that requires little to no downtime. Microdermabrasion improves the overall quality of your skin without cutting, injections, or other invasive methods. 

At Image Revolution Health and Wellness, all microdermabrasion procedures are performed by an experienced physician. The practice specializes in safe, minimally invasive, cosmetic solutions catered to the needs of each patient.
