While people will put on sunscreen when going swimming or use body wash on a regular basis, that is typically the extent of their skin care. Many people do not realize the skin is crucial, and the largest, organ in the body. Taking care of one’s skin has the unfortunate stereotype of only needing to be optional or for aesthetic purposes.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

The reality is that many professional skin treatments at a med spa provide health benefits as well as aesthetic changes to one’s appearance. Now more than ever, people are starting to realize the benefits of med spa treatment. Microdermabrasion is a minimally-invasive procedure we offer our patients to help with a variety of factors.

If you are searching for a professional and effective way to enhance and treat your skin, then our microdermabrasion is a great place to start.

Even though skin wrinkles are an inevitable result of aging, there are a plethora of treatments to help reduce them. People will invest in store-bought products that are ineffective and can cause uncomfortable side effects. Our microdermabrasion treatment is a professional non-invasive procedure that can treat multiple skin conditions.

As a medical spa, we can use microdermabrasion to treat a variety of skin conditions and damage. Benefits of this treatment include:

  • Helping to decrease wrinkles
  • Helping treat enlarged pores, black heads and acne scars
  • Reducing stretch marks
  • Helping to treat hyperpigmentation
  • Addressing age spots
  • Helping treat melasma
  • Helping to treat damage from the sun
  • Reducing stretch marks
  • Helping renew skin tone and texture

The effectiveness of this treatment will vary per patient and the condition we are treating. During a consultation, we can determine if this is the right treatment for the patient.

Non-Surgical Skin Treatment

By selecting a non-surgical treatment option, you can enjoy the benefit of little to no recovery time. There are several different techniques to administering microdermabrasion to the skin. However, this is an in-office procedure and not something patients can effectively complete at home.

Since this procedure does not require any type of anesthetic or numbing, our team will take every precaution to keep you comfortable. While we cannot remove the entirety of age spots, stretch marks, and wrinkles, we can help to reduce the appearance of them. Most microdermabrasion treatments will take around an hour.

The two types of microdermabrasion techniques that can help improve a skin’s tone and texture include using a special applicator or a type of spray.

Applicator

The applicator will have an abrasive side that we use to remove the surface layer of the skin. By doing this, we can help to:

  • Rejuvenate the skin
  • Gently remove dead skin
  • Notice immediate changes in the skin

We will make sure to be gentle when using the applicator on the skin, so the patient is able to relax and not feel much of any pain.

Spray

The microdermabrasion spray consists of particles of aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate. We will then use a vacuum suction device to remove the substance and provide the same effect as the applicator option. The suction will remove the surface of the skin cells. The type of treatment we use will depend entirely on the patient’s health and needs.

The Microdermabrasion Process

We will have the patient sit back in a reclining chair for the appointment. This way, they will be able to relax and stay comfortable during treatment. As a med spa, we combine the medical aspect of this aesthetic treatment with the relaxing concept of spa treatment. Before we begin the appointment, we will take the time to evaluate the patient’s current condition and medical history.

If the patient has any history of skin conditions or is taking any medications, then they need to tell us. This way, we can verify our treatment does not cause any other health problems. Once we complete this step, we can begin the procedure. The procedure will take about an hour with little to no recovery time necessary.

Following the procedure, we recommend keeping the skin hydrated and avoiding the use of certain skin medications for at least one day. Remember to use sunscreen to protect the skin since it can be more sensitive to the sun than before. Some patients may need more than one appointment to achieve the desired aesthetic goal.
