Painless, noninvasive and effective, microdermabrasion can revitalize dull skin, generating a younger, healthier look. Among its many benefits are a reduction of large pores, erasing of fines lines and wrinkles, reduction of mild acne scars, mild pigment irregularities, stretch marks & age spots. What makes microdermabrasion one of the most popular facial cosmetic treatments in America is its short treatment time and lack of downtime. Often described as a “lunchtime facial”, microdermabrasion can be done during your lunch break in 30 to 60 minutes and doesn’t require rest. Patients can go back to their daily routine immediately after the procedure.
Over time, skin becomes dull and can accumulate blemishes, scars, and signs of aging. IT is inevitable to run into these undesirable effects, but microdermabrasion provides a simple solution to restoring a healthy appearance. During the treatment, Dr. Emory or his appointed Master Aesthetician will use a hand-held wand to gently resurface the skin. This gentle abrasion uses a tip made of crushed diamonds that breaks up dead skin and other imperfections to create a glowing look. Microdermabrasion works much like a vacuum exfoliator that buffs the skin to enhance skin texture, and improve circulation of lymph flow.
The treatment serves to partially or completely remove the top layer of the skin. It improves the appearance of scars and dark spots while working to remove dull, damaged skin. While microdermabrasion is most effective for patients in the early stages of aging, teens have also benefited from this technique as it can reduce mild acne. The procedure is considered effective for most skin types and can be performed on the face, neck, chest, back, feet, and hands.
Microdermabrasion is not known to be associated with any adverse side effects. However, the skin may appear slightly red for up to 24 hours after the treatment. Patients should not undergo microdermabrasion if they have been using the acne drug, Accutane within the preceding 12 months. Pregnant women and young teens are also discouraged from undergoing the procedure as hormone imbalances may lead to unexpected effects on the skin.
