Microdermabrasion Procedures: What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion may be performed to decrease the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, photo-damage, diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and shallow acne scars which helps to even out the texture.
Removing the dead skin will aid in the penetration of skin care products by up to 50% and make-up will go on much more smoothly.
Depending on the each patient’s particular situation, the procedure may be repeated to achieve more dramatic results.
The average patient could return approximately eight times for additional treatments at about one to three week intervals.
Patients have often combined microdermabrasion with other skin resurfacing methods, such as laser peels, chemical peels, and dermabrasion.
Patients should be aware that there are some minor side effects involved with this procedure, including irritation and reddening of the treated area.
These should subside with time and are of no serious concern to the patient. With proper care following microdermabrasion, all that will be left is a smoother, more refreshed complexion.
