Smooth Over Skin Imperfections with a Non-Invasive Microdermabrasion Treatment at North Sound Dermatology Aesthetics!
Acne, blackheads, discoloration, and other skin imperfections can leave patients wanting smoother, healthier, and younger-looking skin. Fortunately, our practice offers a treatment that can address all of these issues without the need for lasers, injectables, or extensive downtime. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, chemical-free procedure that can bring patients beautiful skin improvements after a simple series of treatments.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures available today. This non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure uses a small wand covered with crystals to gently exfoliate the uppermost layer of the skin. Removing this uppermost layer both reveals healthy skin cells and stimulates the creation of newer tissues.
This treatment is great for addressing:
- Age spots
- Enlarged pores
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
During a microdermabrasion treatment, a clinician gently passes a microdermabrasion wand over the surface of the patient’s skin. The crystals on the wand gently scrape away dead skin cells, debris, and other impurities from the surface of the skin. As the uppermost layers of the skin are removed, healthier tissue underneath is revealed. This controlled damage to the skin also stimulates the creation of structural proteins like collagen and elastin. These proteins gradually make the skin stronger, tighter, and more youthful looking over time.
What Can I Expect from Microdermabrasion Treatment?
Each microdermabrasion treatment takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete and brings patients little to no downtime. While some patients experience varying degrees of redness after treatment, this usually fades within a few days.
While patients can see some improvements in the appearance of their skin after their first treatment, most need to undergo between five and 12 sessions, each spaced between two and three weeks apart, to receive the full benefits of microdermabrasion.
