Microdermabrasion is non-surgical exfoliating procedure that uses a diamond tip wand to exfoliate and then suction away dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, exposing a new layer of collagen and skin cells underneath that aids in clearing up of common skin problems. The procedure is repeated for up to five times during different visits in order to achieve the desired result for people in the Phoenix and Goodyear, AZ areas. It can be used on light or dark skin and positive results can be achieved on the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, and knees. The procedure entails virtually no discomfort, downtime, or recovery. Typically, we recommend Microdermabrasion as a prep or follow-up to another treatment, such as a Chemical Peel or FotoFacial™.
Microdermabrasion is carried out by licensed estheticians and does not cause any discomfort. Microdermabrasion is a low-risk procedure and requires only a short amount of time to carry out one session. Thirty minutes are all it takes to successfully complete one session, and there is no recovery period. There is a slight blushing of the skin following the session, which typically fades within one or two hours.
After just one session, patients will notice an improvement in skin texture and tone, and a more pronounced change in imperfections in three to four sessions. Microdermabrasion is usually combined with a chemical peel in order to reap maximum benefits and a lasting effect. Minor side effects such as dryness and flaking of the skin are to be expected a few days after the procedure, and a once a month schedule is all that is needed as part of one’s skin care routine in Phoenix and Goodyear, AZ. Microdermabrasion is a convenient way of keeping one’s complexion young, healthy and glowing.
