Microdermabrasion is a very effective method of skin resurfacing for people who suffer from mild acne, acne discoloration, pick marks, and superficial acne scars. The physical effects of acne can last long after the outbreak has gone away; leaving patients unhappy with the reflection they see mirror. Dr. Grayman offers microdermabrasion as a way to unclog pores and rejuvenate skin.

Acne is caused when secretions from the skin’s oil gland clog the hair follicles. When the secretion is exposed to air and darkens, they are called blackheads, if they remain closed and white, the clogs are called whiteheads. Both types of clog can develop into pimples or even deeper lumps. Severe cases of acne can cause swelling beneath the skin’s surface that can become sensitive, puffy, and even infected.

Microdermabrasion has the precision and control to unclog those pores, restoring the skin to a fresher, healthier look. The treatment is gentle and customized to the individual’s needs.

How it works:

Microdermabrasion utilizes a hand held device that disperses tiny crystals to gently remove the outer lay of skin. The crystals act to exfoliate, to encourage skin renewal. The vacuum suction will remove the crystals along with dead skin cells, which in turn will unclog pores. It encourages collagen production in the skin, which will minimize the appearance of enlarged pores and dark spots from prior breakouts, leaving patients with smoother skin.

Treatments will be performed in a series. The number of treatments will be determined in your initial appointment with Dr. Grayman.

There are very few side effects with microdermabrasion treatments. Patients may notice some slight swelling and a pink color to their skin that will go away within 24 hours. Some may experience eye irritation from the crystals. Dr. Grayman provides protective eye-wear to be worn by her patients during treatment. You will be able to move on with your daily routine immediately.

Microdermabrasion is also effective in treating:

  • Age and sun spots
  • Scars
  • Hyper-pigmentation
  • Dull or very oily skin
