Microdermabrasion can perform miracles for your skin. This minimally invasive procedure can help repair sun damage, wrinkles, scarring from acne and spotting caused from aging. This treatment can also reduce the appearance of stretchmarks.
Microdermabrasion helps repair your skin by stimulating the production of collagen which aids in skin rejuvenation. Many of our clients report that they see dramatic improvements in the tone of their skin and their skin’s texture after just one treatment!
How Long Does a Microdermabrasion Treatment Take?
Typically, one treatment lasts between thirty minutes, but can go up to one hour. Although it is true that you will usually see improvements after one treatment, we recommend our clients to complete a series of treatments throughout several weeks to see longer lasting results.
Microdermabrasion and Its Side Effects
If you are worrying about the side effects of microdermabrasion, rest assured, they are very minimal. After receiving the procedure you might experience skin tightness, some redness and minor bruising. We would also like to remind our clients to try and limit their aspirin intake after receiving this treatment, because you might also experience more bruising than usual due to the blood thinning properties of this medication.
Is Microdermabrasion Painful?
Good question! Actually, microdermabrasion is virtually painless, especially when compared to its counterpart dermabrasion. With dermabrasion treatments, a numbing medicine is usually applied to the skin before treatment to minimize any discomfort. However, microdermabrasion requires no numbing medicine, so don’t worry, because you probably won’t experience any discomfort.
Microdermabrasion is Also Cost Effective
This treatment is also generally considered to produce better results and be more cost effective when compared to chemical face peels and that means your skin will also require less maintenance than before. This treatment really is a win-win for everybody. If you think this treatment is right for you, please don’t hesitate to call and schedule your microdermabrasion appointment today!
