This is a non-surgical treatment that helps give the skin a fresher look. The surgeon uses a wand to blow crystals on your skin, and then the crystals and dead skin cells are sucked away through the wand.
The procedure only takes about 5 to 10 minutes, and if done regularly, can help reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles and superficial scarring. The recovery period for microdermabrasion and other superficial skin resurfacing techniques is very short. Most people are able to apply makeup and feel comfortable being seen in public on the same day of the procedure.
Microdermabrasion helps improve the appearance of:
- Brown spots
- Shallow acne scars
- Sun-damaged skin
- Dull or aging skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Dermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure used to treat acne scars, other scar tissue and wrinkles. A high-speed rotary instrument is used to “sand” away the top layers of skin. New skin grows in as you heal that has a smoother texture.
The dermabrasion depth varies with your specific needs. Similarly, the recovery period varies depending on the depth of dermabrasion and ranges from 1 day to several weeks.
