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 and 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 DermaSweep and SilkPeel microdermabrasion treatments. These safe and effective methods gently remove dead skin cells. These treatments have been found to 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.
Types of Microdermabrasion
At RejuvedermMD Aesthetic Center, we offer multiple microdermabrasion options:
- DermaSweep: This microdermabrasion treatment cleanses, polishes and resurfaces the skin for a more radiant glow.
- DermaSweep with EpiFusion: This microdermabrasion treatment includes an exclusive 3 in 1 micro-resurfacing SkinFusion therapy that combines a proprietary bristle treatment tip with oxygen stimulating circulation and skin specific infusion delivery to rejuvenate and restore skin health.
- DermaSweep with PeelFusion: This microdermabrasion treatment is similar to the 3 in 1 treatment of EpiFusion; however, this treatment is better suited for clients that need an infusion of chemical exfoliation for deeper penetration without the downtime of a traditional chemical peel.
- SilkPeel Dermalinfusion: This customizable microdermabrasion treatment infuses various serums into the skin while removing excess skin cells for a brighter more radiant skin appearance.
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.
