Abrasive techniques aren’t meant to harm the skin, but rather serve as a removal mechanism. Dead and damaged cells are the cause of much of the discolored, brittle skin adults experience, especially on the face. Many upper-level skin problems such as acne or injury scars, freckles, and age spots can be treated with a gentle procedure known as microdermabrasion. This treatment isn’t as aggressive or harsh as traditional dermabrasion.
We recommend this treatment for our clients who come to us with concerns about fine wrinkles and crow’s feet near the mouth and eyes, age spots, clogged pores, and other forms of uneven pigmentation. The gentle removal of the upper cell layers of the epidermis not only exposes healthier skin, but it also encourages the production of additional collagen and elastin. The result is a smoother skin texture, more evenly toned skin, and a significant reduction in the appearance of dark spots such as freckles and scarring.
A Gentle Approach to Skin Revitalization
Microdermabrasion is performed utilizing tiny micro-crystals. The pressure intensity is controlled by the practitioner. The micro-crystals aim to gently remove the upper epidermal layer. In the process, clogged pores are opened. The newly exposed dermal layer will quickly become the upper epidermal layer. This exposure of dermal skin causes a reaction whereby the body accelerates the creation of replacement tissues in the lower dermal layers.
This replacement process also means the production of more collagen. Eventually, the epidermis will be smoother and tauter, and dark spots such as freckles and acne scars will be far less noticeable. Marionette lines and crow’s feet will also be less visible.
This treatment is suitable for all skin tones and textures, but it won’t correct significant sagging or deeper-set wrinkles. It’s important to consult with us first so that we can give realistic outcome projections.
We usually schedule a series of treatment sessions at our office. This allows for some skin healing and tissue production between treatments. Experience has shown us that this is the best way to maximize results.
