What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive dermatological skin refreshing technique that revitalizes dull skin that has sustained sun damage and the effects of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation such as age spots.

How does Microdermabrasion treatment work?

Microdermabrasion is performed with a device that is similar to a “sandblaster” to spray miniscule crystals across the face while combining gentle abrasion with suction to remove the outer layer of epidermal skin cells. Microdermabrasion also stimulates the production of new skin cells and the development of collagen (fibrous skin tissue).

How long does each Microdermabrasion treatment take?

Each Microdermabrasion treatment usually takes approximately 30-60 minutes depending on the specific treatment. The number of treatments required for maximum results can range from 5-12, spaced approximately 2-3 weeks apart. Maintenance of the results typically requires periodic repeat treatments.

What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion treatment?

The benefits of Microdermabrasion are: 

  • Virtually no side effects
  • Provides the skin with an overall fresh, healthy glow
  • Non-surgical, safe and effective “lunch hour” procedure
  • Effective on all skin types and colors
  • No anesthetic is required
  • Excellent for skin sensitive to chemical applications
  • Normal activities may be resumed immediately

    • What is the cost of Microdermabrasion treatment?

      The cost of Microdermabrasion varies depending on location, skill of the physician and the exact treatment areas but the treatments typically cost $250-$500 each.
