What is Microdermabrasion?
One of the least invasive ways to rejuvenate the skin, microdermabrasion involves buffing or sanding away the rough, outer layers of the skin surface with a stream of sterile crystals. This process has multiple aesthetic benefits, such as:
- Aiding the skin in removing dead skin cells and other cellular debris
- Stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin to continue subtly improving treated areas over time
Microdermabrasion can help target multiple skin imperfections, such as:
- Fine lines
- Sun spots
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- And more!
Additionally, the exfoliating properties of microdermabrasion open up the skin, allowing skin care and cosmetic products to be absorbed more easily.
Are There Any Side Effects?
One of the main benefits of microdermabrasion is its ability to gently resurface the skin without requiring any downtime. Most patients are able to immediately return to normal activities without complications. Treated areas may appear slightly flushed or pink, which is an indicator that the skin healing process has begun. Dr. Reger and our medical team will advise you on how to protect your skin during the remodeling process for optimal results.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Results may vary, but microdermabrasion can potentially be paired with other aesthetic treatments for long-lasting results. When used as a standalone treatment, microdermabrasion can be repeated regularly to help keep skin smooth and control visible signs of aging.
Depending on your individual condition and aesthetic goals, Dr. Reger and our medical team will develop a customized treatment plan for you outlining how many sessions you may need, what you can expect during the treatment process, whether any other treatment options are available to you, and all other safety information relevant to your treatment.
