Advanced Microdermabrasion

microdermabrasion patient

Dull, dry skin that’s lost its luster or is showing signs of aging doesn’t have to stay that way. As we age, the skin’s cell renewal process naturally slows down, which can cause dead cells and dirt to accumulate on the skin’s surface, making it appear dull. Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective ways of removing these dead cells, leaving your complexion glowing and more youthful.

If you feel your skin no longer looks its freshest, it might be time to come to Physician’s Laser for a refresh with quick and long-lasting results. Get your radiance back with our advanced microdermabrasion treatments.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that uses a mechanical device to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin. It is a noninvasive and relatively gentle way to improve fine lines, wrinkles, scars, dark spots and uneven skin tone for most skin types.

In addition to surface exfoliation, microdermabrasion promotes the production of new cells in the deep, basal layer of the dermis. It cleans the pores and stimulates collagen production, further improving skin texture.

Benefits of microdermabrasion:

  • Gives the skin an overall fresh, healthy-looking glow
  • Nonsurgical, safe, effective “lunch hour” procedure
  • Effective on all skin colors and types
  • No anesthetic required
  • Excellent for skin sensitive to chemical procedures
  • Can resume normal activities immediately
  • Promotes lymph circulation
  • Virtually no side effects for most skin types

Types of Microdermabrasion

Some devices use crystals that sandblast a stream of fine aluminum oxide or sodium chloride (salt) crystals onto the skin to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells. These crystals are suctioned away, along with the skin cells. This method is considered less precise than the alternative diamond tip machines.

Devices that use diamonds work by using a small wand with a diamond-encrusted tip to gently scrape the top layer of skin and remove dead cells. Because the diamond tip is firmer and more durable than crystals, it’s considered more precise and less messy than the crystal abrasion process. And you won’t need to worry about crystal particles from your treatment remaining on your skin.

DiamondTome Microdermabrasion at Physician’s Laser

DiamondTome Microdermabrasion is the original crystal-free microdermabrasion device, and we proudly use it here at Physician’s Laser. During your revitalizing skin treatment, we glide the wand containing natural diamond chips embedded in the tip over your skin. In under an hour, we reveal your smoother and clearer complexion.

Diamond microdermabrasion is still the most cutting-edge technology to quickly and efficiently address multiple skin issues at once. After just one treatment session, you can see visible results without needing any numbing medications, as it is a pain-free and comfortable experience.

The Treatment

Microdermabrasion treatments typically take between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and the specific skin concerns being addressed. During the treatment, your skincare professional will use a handheld device to exfoliate the outer layer of your skin using fine crystals or a diamond-tipped wand.

After the treatment, you should be able to return to your normal activities immediately, although your skin may be slightly red and sensitive. Following the post-treatment care instructions is essential for minimizing potential side effects. Some people may need more than one treatment to achieve their desired results, and the number of treatments required will depend on your specific skin concerns and skin type.

Recovery Time

Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive treatment with minimal recovery time. After the treatment, your skin may be slightly red and sensitive, but these effects usually resolve within a few hours. You may return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment, but be sure to protect your skin from direct sun and to use sunscreen to avoid damaging your skin.

We will provide post-treatment care instructions, including using a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated, avoiding certain skincare products or activities, and protecting your skin from the sun. It is essential to follow these instructions carefully to ensure the best possible results and minimize potential side effects.

Ideal Parts of the Face and/or Body for Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion can be performed on any part of the face, including the forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin, wherever you’d like to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone on the face. Microdermabrasion is also a fantastic treatment for reducing the size of pores and blackheads and removing acne scars on your cheeks, nose, chin and forehead.

Microdermabrasion treats hyperpigmentation (dark spots) and can be used on light or dark skin to treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees and hands. If you have concerns about other places not mentioned here, ask during your consultation if dermabrasion is the right choice.

How To Ensure Ideal Microdermabrasion Results

You will be provided with aftercare that ensures the best results and helps your skin to renew effectively post-procedure. Stop using any exfoliating products for about three to seven days after your appointment. Do not touch, rub, or pick your skin, which can slow healing. We encourage you to use a gentle cleanser, avoid direct contact with the sun for 48 hours, and wear sunscreen daily. Hydrate your body with plenty of water.

Multiple treatments are ideal for the best and longest-lasting results for most people. Typically, you should have a microdermabrasion treatment every two to four weeks for about four to six total sessions. This will help you maintain your results and keep that skin glowing longer.

Ideal Patients

Microdermabrasion is generally considered safe and effective for most skin types and can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns. However, it is not recommended for individuals with active acne who have recently undergone chemotherapy or radiation treatment or have a history of keloid scarring.

This treatment isn’t recommended for pregnant individuals with severe and active acne, deep scars, undiagnosed lesions, active keloids, facial warts, herpes, unmanaged diabetes and autoimmune disorders. Be sure to mention any of these conditions if you speak with our staff about your skincare options so we can find the procedures to give you the best results.
