Microdermabrasion is the “lunch time” approach to skin rejuvenation. With the use of a natural diamond tip and a gentle vacuum, it exfoliates dead skin cells and unclogs pores. Less aggressive than laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion is a non-surgical treatment that does not require an anesthetic. Treatments take 30-40 minutes and provide many benefits which may include the reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, scars and hyperpigmentation, refinement of the appearance of pores, stimulated circulation, collagen and cell regeneration, elimination of acne including whiteheads and blackheads and improvement in elasticity and skin texture.
While the effects of microdermabrasion are not as dramatic as those of laser resurfacing, recovery time after the procedure is much shorter. Though there may be some redness afterwards, most patients can return to work immediately. A series of microdermabrasion treatments are often employed to achieve the best results.
