What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive alternative to help revitalize the skin from common signs of aging such as:
- Fines lines
- Acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Age spots
- Dull skin tone
- And more.
Microdermabrasion has also been able to treat redness in the skin associated with rosacea.
Through specialized microcrystals, the superficial layer of skin is gently exfoliated, stimulating the production of collagen and revealing smoother, healthier skin. This unique treatment is one of the most popular non-invasive treatments performed in medical aesthetics today!
What is the microdermabrasion treatment process like?
Your treatment begins with a member of our team utilizing a specialized handpiece equipped with microcrystals at the tip. The microdermabrasion device is gently glided across the surface of the skin, removing dead skin cells and other impurities through carefully suctioning.
How many microdermabrasion treatments will I need?
To help you achieve the best possible results, Dr. Riehs recommends a treatment plan of between 5-12 treatments with 2-3 weeks in between each treatment. With more treatments comes the production of new layers of skin cells that are comprised of fresher collagen and elastin, two key proteins that give our skin that youthful look and texture.
Who is a good candidate for microdermabrasion?
Anyone looking to address the common signs of aging skin listed above may receive microdermabrasion rejuvenation. Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types.
