COVID-19 – Updates and Safety Measures


Clinical Exfoliation

Microdermabrasion is a mild skin-resurfacing procedure that reveals smooth, glowing skin. The treatment gently exfoliates the top layers of facial skin. A mild, low-risk treatment, microdermabrasion achieves results without damaging the skin.

Who Should Get Microdermabrasion?

Patients appreciate how simple and easy a microdermabrasion can be.

We use microdermabrasion to treat:

  • Mild acne
  • Mild sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rough skin

If you would like to improve your skin with few risks and no downtime, microdermabrasion may be right for you. Microdermabrasion is not recommended for pregnant women or people with severe acne.

What to Expect During Microdermabrasion

During microdermabrasion, you will lie down comfortably as we apply a handheld device to your skin. The device blows crystals onto the skin and then quickly removes them with suction. These tiny crystals are the key to microdermabrasion, as they improve and exfoliate your skin without causing significant damage.

If necessary, we perform multiple passes over problem areas of your skin. The amount of suction is adjusted to provide either a mild, moderate, or aggressive treatment. If you are new to microdermabrasion, or have sensitive skin, the mild suction is typically used.

After Your Treatment

Microdermabrasion treatments are often performed as a series. Once we have achieved your desired results, monthly maintenance sessions may be recommended to keep your polished new look.

Discomfort after microdermabrasion is typically short-lived. This can include redness and swelling, which should subside in a few hours. During the first week, your skin may be flaky and dry. The results of your microdermabrasion will vary based on the number of sessions and the level of your treatment.

Understanding the Risks of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a low-risk treatment. Potential side effects include bruising caused by suction of the device and sensitivity to sun exposure. Remember to apply sunscreen, especially the first few days of your treatment. We’ll review all microdermabrasion side effects and safety information during your office visit.
