This treatment options help exfoliates the superficial layer of your skin which helps unclog pores, reduce bacteria, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and even out skin tone by reducing sun-damaged skin. It involves minimal recovery time/discomfort and allows you to resume normal activities immediately.
What is the treatment like?
This procedure requires no anesthesia, and will not adversely lighten or darken dark skin, as some exfoliating treatments can do. Here at D Art of Beauty, we use medical-grade physician-strength microdermabrasion instruments that involve diamond-tipped handpieces to help gently exfoliate the top layer of dead skin, which in turn will stimulate new and healthy skin growth. Our professional staff will adjust the abrasion strength as needed depending on the individual skin condition. Following the treatment, your face is revitalized by our physician-only skin care product line to help rejuvenate, moisturize, and protect your skin. You can then immediately resume your regular activities, with only mild skin pinkness, which generally fades within an hour or two. It will leave you with a beautiful, healthy, radiant glow. The number of sessions needed and results may vary.
What can it treat?
Microdermabrasion can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, blackheads and whiteheads, superficial pigmentation, reduce acne forming bacteria, improve acne scarring, and give the skin a healthy, fresh glow. Individual results may vary.
Who are the rights candidates?
Microdermabrasion is ideal for individuals who don’t want to undergo any downtime or long healing time, high expenses, severe discomfort, and possible side effects of alternative skin resurfacing treatments such as deep chemical peels, dermabrasion, or skin resurfacing. Generally, anyone is a candidate.
How long does it take?
A full-face treatment typically lasts about 15 – 30 minutes so it can actually be done during your lunch break, although individual treatment time may vary. Microdermabrasion is a simple way to maintain healthy skin year-round and can complement your home skin care regimen.
What skincare products are recommended in combination with microdermabrasion?
These treatments will likely be combined with physician-prescribed medical strength skincare products, from a physician only product line, to enhance the results of the microdermabrasion treatment.
How long will the results last?
The duration of the effects of each treatment will depend on how vigilant you are at maintaining adequate hydration of your skin with moisturizers and how well you protect your skin from the sun with sunscreen SPF 15 or higher. Following the initial series, periodic maintenance microdermabrasion treatments (every few weeks, depending on the skin condition) are often recommended.
