Microdermabrasion is a gentle method for removing aged, damaged skin to reveal the more youthful skin beneath. In addition to removing dull and wrinkled skin, microdermabrasion stimulates your body to produce more collagen, which results in a more healthy appearance and firmer, more elastic skin. Microdermabrasion also requires no downtime. If you are careful about sun exposure, you can go right back to work after treatment, although your skin may look red.

What Microdermabrasion Treats
Microdermabrasion can be used to treat the following skin problems:
- Age spots
- Large pores
- Superficial wrinkles and scars
- Fine lines
- Dull skin
Many people think microdermabrasion is only for the face, but it’s a versatile procedure that can be used on the neck, arms, hands, décolleté, legs and back as well.
How Microdermabrasion Works
When we are young, our skin looks younger because it is. We are regularly shedding skin and replacing it with new, younger skin. But when we get older this process slows down, allowing more time for our skin to get damaged and dull. Microdermabrasion is a process that speeds up the process again.
Microdermabrasion can be compared to softened-sandblasting for your face. These treatments are much less aggressive than dermabrasion, which means less irritation and down time. With microdermabrasion, tiny crystals are applied to the skin and an abrasive instrument is used to sand the skin which removes the outer layer. This layer is commonly uneven and thick; and removing it allows for new skin growth along with an increase in collagen. With microdermabrasion, the skin is able to rejuvenate itself by growing a new layer that looks smooth, taut, and refreshed.
Some results from microdermabrasion will be visible immediately. Others will continue to improve over the next 4-6 months. Microdermabrasion can give great results on its own, but it often benefits when used in combination with other skin care treatments that can serve to improve and maintain your skin’s youthful appearance.
