Microdermabrasion is a gentle sanding of the face, neck, and chest to minimize sun damaged skin, hyper pigmentation, and skin texture. Microdermabrasion stimulates collagen production and enables quicker cellular turnover. If your skin has become dull or damaged from aging or exposure to the elements, it may be a good time to undergo a series of microdermabrasion treatments. When performed in the practice of Bingham Farms plastic surgeon Dr. Sabbagh, microdermabrasion can reveal refreshed, more even and smoother-looking skin.
Imagine a very fine sand blaster and you’ll get a picture of how microdermabrasion works. It uses micro-particles, or a diamond-tipped wand, to slough off the top layer (epidermis) of your skin and stimulate new skin growth. This technique also helps to thicken your collagen, which results in smoother and younger looking skin. There is almost no discomfort in microdermabrasion, meaning you won’t need a topical or local anesthetic and there is no recovery or downtime. Our estheticians recommends microdermabrasion for patients who exhibit conditions such as:
- mild sun damage
- uneven skin texture
- dull complexion.
Is Microdermabrasion right for you?
Facial microdermabrasion is sometimes performed with no medical oversight, often in conjunction with facial spa treatments. You can minimize your risks for complications and achieve optimal results by visiting a licensed and experienced aesthetician. Microdermabrasion is an excellent choice if you want to improve your complexion but don’t have the time to recover from a laser treatment or medium depth chemical peel.
