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.

Our Talented Microdermabrasion Physicians

At the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, our talented physicians or RN’s will perform microdermabrasion for patients who would like to achieve a smoother complexion without the need for surgery.

This non-surgical skin treatment can diminish skin abnormalities by removing the outermost layer of the skin through light abrasion with aluminum oxide crystals.

Some of the most common reasons that patients have chosen to undergo microdermabrasion include:

Sun exposure causes most of the skin changes that we think of as a normal part of aging. Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching. The skin also bruises and tears more easily — taking longer to heal. So while sun damage to the skin may not be apparent when you’re young, it will definitely show later in life.

A fine line or wrinkle, also known as a rhytide, is a fold, ridge or crease in the skin. Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of aging processes such as glycation, habitual sleeping positions, loss of body mass, or temporarily, as the result of prolonged immersion in water. Age wrinkling in the skin is promoted by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors

Bad acne often leads to bad scars where the skin has the shape of a volcano. It is difficult and expensive to treat acne scars.

Microdermabrasion Facts

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.
