Microdermabrasion rejuvenates and revitalizes your skin in just an afternoon! Microdermabrasion uses a fine jet of crystals to gently and painlessly exfoliate your skin while vacuum suction removes the crystals with the dead skin cells. Phoenix patients are left with new, softer skin, and more even skin texture.
Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive, skin resurfacing procedure that gently exfoliates or polishes away the top layer of dead skin cells, while stimulating collagen growth, to reveal healthy new skin that looks and feels smoother. Fine lines, blemishes, dull skin and sun spots can be improved, especially with regular treatments.
- What is Microdermabrasion?
This non-surgical procedure uses a diamond tip wand to exfoliate, and then suction away dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, exposing a new layer of collagen and skin cells that help clear up common skin problems. The procedure can be used on light or dark skin; it works best on the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows and knees.
This simple, quick and convenient procedure has become very popular with patients showing the early signs of aging, sun exposure and other facial imperfections. Non-invasive and non-wounding to the skin’s surface, the procedure entails virtually no discomfort, down time or recovery. Phoenix patients typically experience some redness for about an hour after the procedure. Because microdermabrasion is so precise, the procedure is virtually pain-free.
Microdermabrasion may be combined with a light chemical peel to increase the effect. Immediately after your treatments, a moisturizer with SPF will be applied to hydrate and protect your skin.
Microdermabrasion can be successfully used on light or dark skin to treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees and hands. Microdermabrasion is generally indicated for:
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Age Spots, Sun Damage and Hyperpigmentation
- Acne Scars, Chickenpox Scars and Scratch Marks
- Congested Skin, Enlarged Pores and Blemishes
- Dull Skin
- How is Microdermabrasion performed?
Microdermabrasion can be successfully used on the face, neck, and chest; more rarely on the knees, elbows, arms and hands.
After cleansing your treatment area, the aesthetician with use a jet of sterile micro-crystals to gently exfoliate the your skin without the use of anesthesia. The aesthetician will adjust the pressure for your skin and move the Microdermabrasion machine’s hand piece across the treatment area to deliver a precise stream of crystals onto the skin’s surface. The scale-like, lifeless epidermal cells and the crystals are then suctioned back into the same hand piece to reveal a fresh, invigorated skin surface.
After your treatment, the aesthetician may choose to do one of several different type of chemicals peel depending on your skin condition.
- Does Microdermabrasion hurt?
Microdermabrasion may sting a little around the eye area. Our aesthetician will normally increase the treatment strength each session to increase the penetration to the skin. Your skin may feel a little hot and appear a little pink immediately following your treatment. You should tell your aesthetician immediately if your treatment is too uncomfortable; they can turn down the controls if the suction or level of the “blast” is too strong for you.
- Can I combine Microdermabrasion with another procedure?
- How long with the results last?
You will notice a healthy glow for a few days following microdermabrasion, but the best results can be seen after repeated treatments. The number of treatments recommended for maximal results can range from five to twelve, spaced two to four weeks apart. Maintenance of results requires periodic repeat treatments after the initial regimen is completed.
It is vitally important that you follow all patient care instructions provided. Your aesthetician will also provide detailed instructions about the normal symptoms you will experience and any potential signs of complications. It is important to realize that the amount of time it takes for recovery varies greatly among Phoenix patients.
