Microdermabrasion is a popular skin rejuvenation treatment that not only removes dead skin cells but also stimulates new cell growth. It is often used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, large pores and other skin imperfections.
How is Microdermabrasion Performed?
The procedure is non-invasive, meaning that there are no incisions, scarring or anesthesia involved. Rather, it is performed right here in our Nashville, TN, office and typically only lasts about 45 minutes. Your skin care professional will clean the treatment area before the treatment. He or she will then use a medical-grade microdermabrasion machine to remove the dead, outer layer of skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is particularly beneficial for patients who want to get rid of age spots, sun-damaged skin, surface acne, enlarged pores, small scars and dark pigmentation. It is not, however, appropriate treatment for heavily damaged or loose, sagging skin. If that is your main concern, you may need a more advanced surgical procedure such as a facelift. Talk with your doctor before surgery about any medical conditions, as those with a history if diabetes, auto-immune disorders, active acne, rosacea, and herpes may not be suitable candidates.
What are the Typical Results?
Microdermabrasion patients consistently report improved tone, texture, and color of their skin. Microdermabrasion not only exfoliates dead skin cells, but it also stimulates the production of collagen and new skin cells, making way for a healthier and more rejuvenated complexion. Perhaps the best resource we can offer our patients is a gallery of microdermabrasion before and after pictures, which will give you a better sense of the results you can likely expect.
