Microdermabrasion is the ultimate minimally invasive advancement in non-surgical skin conditioning that immediately improves your skin’s appearance. Treatments are mild, yet highly effective at removing the most superficial layers of dead cells in order to produce a rejuventaed skin appearance.
Fine lines from around the eyes and lips can be treated, acne scars can be dramatically reduced and most textural conditions can be addressed. Microdermabrasion can also be helpful in removing open and closed comedones (blackheads and whiteheads).
What is Microdermabrasion and how does it work?
During microdermabrasion crystals are used to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin. This is usually combined with a suction device to clean out pores, remove clogging and draw underlying debris to the surface to facilitate easier extraction.
The suction simultaneously draws blood to the surface of the skin, increasing the level of oxygenated blood in the dermis, and speeding up natural production of collagen, elastin and fibroblast cells. This increase in intercellular activity and in the skins regeneration process produces exceptional results.
The microdermabrasion procedure is a relaxing outpatient procedure with almost no recovery time. Patients are able to leave our office and resume activities immediately, with the skin generally only exhibiting a faint red glow after the procedure. A series of 4 to 6 treatments at 2 to 4 week intervals are often needed to obtain optimal results. Many patients like the feel of their skin so much after treatment that they continue to come in for monthly refresher treatments. Particulate resurfacing can soften fine lines and wrinkles, and truly gives the skin a more smooth look and feel. Many women and men find that they wear makeup less often as a result of the superb skin enhancement produced by this wonderful technique.
At La Sante we often combine microdermabrasion with a chemical peel, especially for those with aged or acne prone skin. Microdermabrasion removes the dead skin blocking pores thus increasing the penetration of active products
