Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure which utilizes a hand held device to vacuum micro crystal across the skin, to exfoliate the epidermis (outer layer of skin). This procedure can improve the texture, tone, and clarity of your skin. The procedure may be helpful in the treatment of acne prone skin, acne scars, sun-damaged skin, age spots, dry, dull skin or oily skin. You may require 4 to 6 treatments to get the result you desire. These appointments will be scheduled every 2 to 4 weeks. Each appointment will be about 20 to 30 minutes long.
The crystals feel like they are scratching your face, similar to sandpaper or like a cat’s tongue. If done too forcefully, this treatment can aggravate your acne. If your skin is sensitive it will remain red a little longer than the non-sensitive type
This is a mild procedure so the results will be subtle in comparison to regular dermabrasion, chemical peels or laser therapy (but keep in mind that those procedures carry risks). The average treatment is around $150. There is no downtime which is why some refer to this procedure as the “lunch time peel”. This procedure is also known as the Parisian Peel.
