Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates your skin, eliminating dead cells and paving the way for fresh new skin to reach the surface. At West Derm Center, esthetician Teri Medina performs your microdermabrasion with a handheld device that uses abrasion to loosen the top layer of skin and suction to remove the old tissue.
The outer layer of your skin constantly renews itself, shedding old cells and replacing them with new cells. This process can become sluggish, especially as you get older. As a result, old skin builds up on the surface. Microdermabrasion solves that problem, giving new skin the ability to shine through.
With regular treatments, microdermabrasion also removes skin imperfections. You’ll see an improvement in problems such as:
Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen production, creating stronger, firmer, and more resilient skin.
You may feel slight scratching or vibrating sensations as the microdermabrasion device exfoliates your skin, but the procedure isn’t painful. It takes about 30-40 minutes to exfoliate your face and another 20 minutes to treat your neck.
It’s normal for your skin to be slightly red like a mild sunburn for a day or two. Some patients prefer to take time off from work until their appearance improves, but the procedure is gentle enough that you won’t need downtime.
Skin care is especially important after microdermabrasion because the skin’s protective barrier is temporarily disrupted. For a time after your procedure, your skin is highly susceptible to ultraviolet (UV) light and it may be more sensitive.
Following microdermabrasion at West Derm Center, your skin can absorb nourishing skin care products more easily, making it the perfect time to talk with Teri about the best skin care regimen for your type of skin and cosmetic concerns.
While you may notice a distinct improvement in your complexion after your first treatment, most patients need a series of 5-16 microdermabrasion treatments to see optimal results. If you follow your skin care plan and protect your skin from the sun, your results will last longer. However, each person is different, and there’s no way to predict how long your results might last.
