Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive treatment that uses a special device with an abrasive surface to gently exfoliate away the thicker, uneven outer layer of skin. By sanding the skin, collagen production is increased, which helps to improve the overall appearance and health of the skin.
Adult patients who wish to improve the overall look and feel of their skin can benefit from microdermabrasion. Ideal candidates will be overall healthy with common skin concerns. Those who are pregnant, have open sores or cuts on the face, or who have uncontrolled diabetes should not receive this treatment. Be sure to disclose all medical information during your consultation to ensure the best possible results.
Skin Refine Medspa is amazing, from the time you walk through the door you are treated with a high level of professionalism. Louise explained the procedure to me and made me feel very comfortable. I had Botox treatment with Miriam and I must say she is outstanding ( she has great knowledge and experience). I will only go there, they are the best!
Sandra is magic! I absolutely love this place! So happy to have found Skin Refine.
Overall, there are a few different ways to go about this procedure, based on the specific device that is used. Skin care professionals can choose between using a diamond-tip handpiece, which exfoliates dead cells of your skin and simultaneously suctions them off, or crystal microdermabrasion, which uses a handpiece that gently sprays fine crystals to exfoliate the skin. The approach used will depend on your skin care provider’s preference and/or your skin goals.
Regardless of the technique used, a handpiece will be used to exfoliate the skin, removing the outermost layer. After exfoliation, a moisturizer and sunscreen will be applied to the skin. Treatment typically lasts about 30 minutes.
Following microdermabrasion treatment, patients may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising, though these symptoms will go down within a few hours. There is no downtime required after microdermabrasion, so individuals can feel free to return to their daily activities.
To maintain results, it is important to keep your skin hydrated, avoid using topical acne medications the day after treatment, and wear sunscreen when outdoors. It may take between 5-16 sessions of microdermabrasion for drastic results to be seen. Treatments can be performed weekly, every two weeks, or monthly, depending on your individual treatment plan.
