Women and men across America are finally able to enjoy what millions of Europeans have experienced for years in pursuit of youth and beauty. Developed in Italy, microdermabrasion is a highly effective, clinically proven technique for treating fine lines, wrinkles, scars, acne, and stretch marks. When combined in treatment with laser and aesthetic creams, the physician can achieve much greater results in treating various skin conditions. Microdermabrasion has been cleared by the FDA in recent years and has since then enjoyed great public acceptance in the United States.

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a treatment where very fine crystals of aluminum oxide are sprayed onto the skin under pressure and vacuumed back at a fraction of a second. This leads to removal of the superficial skin layer, without damaging the integrity of the skin. When repeated multiple times, this allows the younger softer skin to move to the surface, and literally erasing "wrinkles" and skin imperfections.

What types of conditions can be treated?

Erasing fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, blackhead/whitehead removal, treating sun damaged skin, scars, and stretch marks.

Can all skin types and colors be treated?

Yes, but you need to be evaluated by the doctor to assess your skin condition before beginning treatment.

How long does each treatment last?

Approximately 20-30 minutes.

What does the treatment feel like?

The treatment is painless and quite relaxing, very much like a deep facial. Most patients describe the sensation of light scratches on their skin as the small crystals hit the skin. After the treatment, special toners and moisturizer creams are applied to the face and massaged. Your face may be slightly red after the treatment but it is very mild and goes away in less than an hour.

How many treatments are needed?

It depends on your skin condition. Most patients require 5-10 treatments spread out a week apart. Many patients even come for a monthly treatment on a regular basis in order to maintain a youthful skin.

How soon can I expect results?

You should notice an immediate improvement in the texture and appearance of your skin after the first treatment. However, more dramatic results are obtained after multiple treatment.

How soon can I resume my daily activities?

Immediately after treatment. You should, however, try to minimize your sun exposure or use a daily sunblock.

What do I need to do before & after treatment?

Avoid sun exposure as much as possible and wear a daily sunblock lotion, and avoid cigarette smoking. You should also avoid exfoliating creams (alpha-hydroxy, glycolics, or Retin-A) 2 days before and after treatment.

Can you undergo laser treatments in combination with microdermabrasion?

Yes, the combination of laser therapy and microdermabrasion will actually give you much better results. However, the treatments should not be done on the same day. The doctor can revise a treatment plan for you to achieve the best results.

Can you use exfoliating creams (alpha-hydroxy, glycolics, or Retin-A)?

The use of these creams should be avoided 48 hours before and after treatment. Combination of microdermabrasion and exfoliating creams will actually give you much better results in removing wrinkles and rejuvenating your skin. The doctor can explain this further for you.
