What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew skin tone and texture. The beauty of this treatment is its impressive versatility. Microdermabrasion has been shown to be effective in reducing signs of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns. This treatment option is adaptable to a variety of skin textures and needs. Microdermabrasion is non-surgical and non-invasive, therefore there is no need for preparation prior to the procedure.
The microdermabrasion treatment for age spots involves a mild abrasion followed by vacuum suction to remove dead skin cells. Sessions typically last between 15-30 minutes. During this time, some mild discomfort may be experienced as the device gently sand away the thick outer layer of your skin. After sanding away the dead skin cells, they are cleaned up using a vacuum system. The result of this process is the emergence of new, softer surface skin. This option is an excellent choice for treating uneven pigmentation, as it only affects the uppermost layer of your skin.
You may experience some tenderness following your microdermabrasion treatment. Despite this, the procedure does not require any downtime and you may return to your normal activities immediately after your visit. Immediate skin rejuvenation may be experienced, but several treatment sessions are often required for best results.
