Full information of what you should do
before and after the procedure
During microdermabrasion, or surgical skin planing, we freeze the patient’s skin and then mechanically removes or “sands” the skin to improve the contour and achieve a rejuvenated appearance as a new layer of remodeled skin replaces the damaged skin. The new skin generally has a smoother and refreshed appearance. Results are generally quite remarkable and long-lasting.
When is dermabrasion indicated?
When dermabrasion was first developed, it was used predominantly to improve acne scars, chicken pox marks and scars resulting from accidents or disease. Today, it is also used to treat other skin conditions, such as pigmentation, wrinkles, sun damage, unwanted tattoos, age (liver) spots and certain types of skin lesions. The treatment may also be applied to select areas of deformed skin.
How does the procedure work?
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that involves the use of fine crystals and a vacuum to remove dead skin cells. It’s used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and skin blemishes.
During the procedure, the practitioner will use a handheld device to direct a fine stream of tiny crystals across the skin to loosen any dead cells and vacuum them away.
