What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation technique that involves exfoliating the skin to eliminate cosmetic concerns and enhance skin laxity. Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals, which are blown onto the skin to gently exfoliate the outermost layers. This process eliminates imperfections and stimulates blood flow, resulting in a range of cosmetic benefits. Microdermabrasion can be used to address the following concerns:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage and pigmentation issues
- Acne scarring or stretch marks
- Poor skin tone or texture
- Enlarged pores
How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost?
If you elect to undergo microdermabrasion at Baldone Reina Dermatology, you will first have a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to determine the best approach for your microdermabrasion treatment. Once these variables are evaluated, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any associated fees.
What is the Microdermabrasion Treatment Like?
We will cleanse the skin prior to a microdermabrasion treatment. The microdermabrasion device will then be used to deliver a stream of abrasive crystals to the skin. This is a comfortable process that patients often describe as a mild scratching sensation. During treatment, a vacuum component will collect any exfoliated skin cells to keep the treatment area free of debris. After the desired amount of exfoliation has been achieved, the treatment is complete.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following Microdermabrasion?
After your microdermabrasion treatment, your skin may feel dry or have a reddened appearance. However, these side effects are temporary and usually fade within a day. You will be able to resume all normal activities immediately after treatment. There is no downtime required following microdermabrasion.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Microdermabrasion?
You will notice initial results immediately from microdermabrasion due to the removal of damaged or dry skin cells. As the skin heals and collagen production increases, you will notice continued improvements in skin elasticity and appearance. However, we typically recommend multiple treatment sessions for optimal results, with most patients benefiting from six to eight treatments.
