Microdermabrasion Facial

Medical microdermabrasion can help improve the skin appearance by removing safely the top layers of the epidermis (stratum corneum) to reduce fine lines, early sun damage, and mild, shallow acne marks.  By purposely removed the epidermal lipid barrier in the stratum corneum, anti-aging and skin-bleaching products are able to more easily penetrate the epidermis and dermis for enhanced cosmeceutical effects.  Microdermabrasion is generally safe for all skin types but must be used conservatively with patients with darker skin.  After microdermabrasion, skin will appear softer, smoother, brighter, clearer and younger-looking  with minimal side effects.

As a stand-alone treatment, prospective patients should refrain from waxing or tanning the skin to be treated for a few weeks before treatment.  Your face and neck should be washed with a gentile, non-oily non-soap based cleanser before each of your scheduled treatments.  You may resume the application of your sunscreen blocker after the procedure.

When microdermabrasion is used as a combined treatment with your medical facial, treatments should be performed with cosmeceutical agents that do not potentiate the effects of microdermabrasion to minimize skin irritation, redness and changes in pigmentation.  Your medical skin care specialist will provide you more detailed information to make your experience a safe and effective session.
