Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This method for rejuvenating skin is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, and sun damage.
What to Expect During Your Visit
During a microdermabrasion appointment, we apply tiny crystals directly to the skin to exfoliate the top layer of the face. A special device is used to buff and polish the skin with the crystals previously applied. Microdermabrasion helps reduce the visibility of brown spots and age marks, while bringing a shine to dull skin. The intense level of exfoliation helps keep your skin feeling smooth.
What to Expect Post-Microdermabrasion
Normally, within 24 hours or less your skin is fully recovered from the exfoliation procedure and you can resume normal activity. Within the first day or so, you may notice that your skin may appear a little pink, this is the new layer of skin adjusting to the world around it. You may also experience a sensation similar to that of a sunburn; this is normal and its just your new, extra sensitive skin feeling the elements for the first time. This sensation, like the pinkness, will goes away in a relatively short time.
Fortunately, the procedure is simple and does not require any downtime, so you won’t have to miss any work or other commitments.
