What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a gentle procedure that uses a safe spray to remove dead skin cells from the outermost layer of skin. This can address a range of issues including sun damage, wrinkles, and clogged pores. As an added benefit, microdermabrasion encourages collagen production in the skin, which helps further improve the skin's appearance.
At Anh Vu, M.D., we offer an ultrasonic microdermabrasion, which exfoliates the skin on a deeper level. This is an excellent solution for patients looking to improve their complexion while achieving all of the results from a traditional microdermabrasion.
Like dermaplaning, microdermabrasion can be a great treatment to prepare the skin for other procedures. When combined with our VI peel, patients can enjoy improved tone, texture, and clarity of skin. This also reduces and eliminates age spots, freckles, and hyperpigmentation, including melasma. Finally, this combination can reduce pore size and soften lines and wrinkles.
How is Microdermabrasion Administered?
Microdermabrasion involves spraying microcrystals onto the skin, which exfoliates dead skin cells. This can cause a warming sensation on the skin, but most patients describe it to be pleasantly comfortable. This procedure is typically performed in less than 30 minutes.
What Can I Expect After My Microdermabrasion Treatment?
After a microdermabrasion treatment, patients can expect mild redness that typically fades within a few hours. Once the redness fades, you will notice a healthy, vibrant layer of skin has been revealed. Patients are recommended to limit sun exposure after this treatment, as the newly revealed skin will be sensitive to the sunlight. Most patients will need to have multiple microdermabrasion sessions to achieve maximum results.
