Microdermabrasion has been available in the United States since the mid 1990’s. Since that time, microdermabrasion remains one of the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments, after chemical peels.
Microdermabrasion is affordable, customizable and it has high patient satisfaction rates.
Microdermabrasion has evolved since it was introduced to us from Europe. At the present time, in addition to aluminum oxide crystals, conundrum crystals, sodium bicarbonate and crystal-free systems that utilize diamond, sapphire or laser cut wands as well as water driven systems are available for patients resurfacing needs.
Crystal-free or particle-free microdermabrasion, has the advantages that you can refine the skin without the spray of crystals, is hypoallergenic and eliminates the possibility of inhaling, ingesting or getting loose crystals into your eyes.
Why Opt for Microdermabrasion Treatments?
Microdermabrasion refines your skin by removing surface layers of dead skin cells and pore-clogging debris. It helps reduce sebum production, making it a valuable addition to the treatments we can offer our patients with mild to moderate acne. With hydradermabrasion and vibradermabrasion, which are both particle-free techniques, we can infuse corrective and nutritive serums and gel formulations into the skin to address acne, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sundamage, etc. Both systems allow for off-face treatments, including the neck, chest, elbows, hands and feet.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, minimal downtime procedure and results are immediately visible. It can be used to “prep” the skin before chemical peels and photofacial and laser treatments to boost their efficacy and yield better results.
Treatments for the face, body or hands are typically offered in a series of 6 to 10 treatments, spaced at one to two week intervals.
Micordermabrasion is the most universally chosen resurfacing treatment. It is effective, offers very little downtime and it is affordable. SkinMD offers two varieties of microdermabrasion. Crystal-free Vibradermabrasion, with the ability to infuse correctives and nutritive formulations, and the Italian Facial Therabrasion system, a ruby crystal manual microdermabrasion that combines elements of a spa facial with the clinical benefits of medical-grade ingredients.
