As we age, so does our skin. Over time, skin can begin to look worn down, wrinkled, and damaged from the sun. Dr. Grayman offers microdermabrasion to patients in Orlando looking to refresh their face and see the reflection of their younger self staring back from the mirror. Microdermabrasion is a painless and effective way to remove dead skin cells, resurface the skin, and leave patients with a rejuvenated look. Microdermabrasion can be used to treat skin on any part of the body. When used in conjunction with other medical facial procedures like chemical peels, it can help produce results that are even more dramatic.
Your skin also produces less collagen and elastin as you age, leading to a loss in skin elasticity and an uneven texture. Microdermabrasion actually stimulates regrowth within the collagen network to help even out your skin texture.
Medical microdermabrasion works on the removal of dead skin cells by spraying minute crystals across the skin while simultaneously removing the dead cells from the outermost layer of skin. This essentially functions as a gentle, yet powerful, exfoliation of the skin. Patients will notice results immediately and are able to resume normal daily activities right after their session. Treatment can be completed in less than an hour and make-up can be applied to the face after a session.
Many patients compare the microdermabrasion to the sensation of having a pumice stone rubbed against the skin. Patients will experience a pinkish glow to the skin that may last several hours. After treatment, our team will send you home with special instructions for taking care of your skin. Dr. Grayman suggests that patients bring any creams, lotions, or other skin care products that they use regularly to their session to be reviewed for use after treatment.
Microdermabrasion can be used to treat a number of issues effectively, including enlarged pores, dull skin texture, excessively oily skin, sun spots, fine lines, and blackheads. Patients with active acne or skin infections are not good candidates for microdermabrasion.
