Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation treatment that sweeps away dead skin cells and improves the overall appearance of the skin. A tool is used to exfoliate the skin’s top layers to stimulate the growth of new skin. The tool is used to gently slough off the top layer of skin, providing a softer and brighter appearance. Our offices offer the DermaSweep and the SilkPeel microdermabrasion treatments. These safe and effective methods gently sweep away dead skin cells. Dr. Matthew Barrows and his team of medical professionals have found that they can improve the skin’s appearance and create a healthy, glowing complexion.
Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective treatment for anyone desiring to improve his or her appearance, and improve skin tone and texture. Patients with skin color irregularities, such as hyperpigmentation, can be treated with this method as well. Microdermabrasion is not advised for those who have severe acne or who have used certain acne drugs, such as isotretinoin, in the past 6-12 months. Patients who have a history of developing keloids or other abnormal scarring should avoid microdermabrasion.
"Tammi Dobbs is very attentive and sweet. She really listens to what you have to say always gives options in treatment rather than pushing one. She is by far the best dermatologist I've gone to."- L.B. / Google / Sep 01, 2015
"I have been to several dermatolgists in the past. I have never been examined as thoroughly as I was by Ella! To say I was impressed would be an understatement. I have had psoriasis most of my adult life. She diagnosed the stiffness in my joints as psoriatic arthritis. All of the other dermatologist I have seen have missed that completely. She is a Very caring dermatologist and has a great staff. I have finally found my dermatologist."- P.C. / Yelp / Sep 05, 2018

What to Expect
A microdermabrasion procedure can take 15-30 minutes to perform. The patient can expect to feel suction from the vacuum and a gentle abrasion during the treatment. After the procedure the patient's skin may feel warm or appear pink. This usually fades within a few hours to a few days. A lotion and sunscreen will be applied to the patient before they leave the office. The patient's skin may feel sensitive for a few days following treatment. Follow the post treatment instructions given by your medical professional to obtain the best results after your microdermabrasion procedure.
