Microdermabrasion sessions can minimize the look of surface skin blemishes, like uneven texture, dull skin tone, fine lines, clogged pores, sun damage, and scars. It is safe and effective for women and men of all skin tone and type that want healthier, clearer skin. These treatments are usually performed on the face, although it can also be great for your hands, neck, and chest.
Microdermabrasion treatments are completed in our comfortable Red Spa after a thorough consultation to determine what services will give you your best results. For the treatment, you will lie back in a comfortable chair as your skin is prepared. The microdermabrasion tool will run along your skin as it polishes and vacuums the debris. While the treatment feels unusual, it is not considered painful so you wouldn't need a numbing cream or local anesthesia. The microdermabrasion will be applied evenly over the needed areas with more caution on the delicate skin around the eyes. As soon as the treatment is over, the skin will be lightly cleansed to remove any residual debris before a soothing masque, selected for your skin type, is applied.
What to Expect
After a microdermabrasion procedure, you can get back to your normal routine as long as you wear sunscreen or another form of sun protection since your skin will be sensitive. Your face should feel smoother and your tone will look brighter. To prolong the benefits, Dr. Mizgala recommends scheduling these procedures every 4 – 6 weeks. Some patients notice that after treatments, the skin care products they use at home absorb more easily into their skin for better results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does microdermabrasion cost?
Your cost for microdermabrasion will be discussed during your consultation with Robin Brock, our skin care professional. At your consultation, a custom treatment plan will be created. A Woman Plastic Surgeon has specials on treatments, like microdermabrasion, as well as discounted packages if you buy several sessions.
Should I get microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel?
Depending on your complexion and cosmetic goals, Robin Brock will help you determine if microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, or a chemical peel is the best treatment for you. In general, microdermabrasion is a great method for clearing away the surface layer of dead and damaged skin cells so your complexion is smoother and healthier. A light chemical peel produces similar results to microdermabrasion. Dermabrasion or a stronger chemical peel is better if your skin problems are below the surface skin layers.
How should I care for my skin after a microdermabrasion treatment?
After your microdermabrasion, you should avoid UV rays (natural sunlight or tanning beds) and protect your skin with sunscreen. To limit redness and irritation after the microdermabrasion, Robin Brock may recommend a customized home skin care program to maintain results long-term.
Can I combine microdermabrasion with other treatments?
Since microdermabrasion is a surface skin treatment, you may consider combining it with other procedures. Many patients combine microdermabrasion with a facial or an injectable wrinkle treatment, like BOTOX. A personalized consultation with Robin Brock and Dr. Mizgala will allow you to make an informed decision and possible combination of procedures to maximally improve your appearance while fitting your budget.
