What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion uses tiny exfoliating crystals that are sprayed on the skin to gently buff away the outermost layer of the skin. Common treatment areas include the hands, face, chest, and neck. The team at Pure Skin Dermatology, LLC performs microdermabrasion on all skin types and colors. With microdermabrasion, there is no skin color change or scarring.
Microdermabrasion is even suitable for those with sensitive skin. Microdermabrasion can prompt the deeper layers of skin to produce collagen, a protein that keeps the skin firm and supple. The result can be a more youthful appearance and rejuvenated skin that looks brighter and softer.
Attaining youthful looking skin
Microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of the skin by:
- Minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Smoothing the texture of skin
- Decreasing pore size
- Reducing hyperpigmentation such as age spots or sun spots
- Improving the appearance of scars
Dr.Grayman will provide a series of treatments to help you achieve optimal results. We typically recommend treatment sessions 10 to 14 days apart. It is important to practice heightened sun protection in between treatments which includes wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 when outdoors. After treatment, your skin may be pink and feel dry and tight for about 24 hours. Certain types of makeup should not be applied for at least 24 hours after the procedure. We will provide proper post-care instructions to ensure optimal results.
