What is Microdermabrasion?

This treatment renews your skin’s overall texture and tone. It can help treat acne scarring, fine lines, age spots, melasma, wrinkles, and sun damage. During this treatment, a unique tool will be used to gently sand away the outer, often thick, layer of skin to help rejuvenate it. It is considered to be safe for most skin types and colors.

What goes on during microdermabrasion?

Our specialists gently remove the top layer of your skin by hand using a specialized device. Most patients report a simple sensation of sanding, but no pain. Expect a treatment of your face to last 30 to 40 minutes and another 20 minutes if you want a treatment for your neck. When finished, we will apply a moisturizer, so your skin does not dry out from the treatment.

Are there any post-treatment things I should do?

Our doctors may suggest applying additional moisturizer at home. You will also want to protect yourself from sunlight after the treatment to reduce side effects and achieve the best results to meet your goals.
