Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair the effects of sun damage and aging on the surface of your skin. Essentially, the process involves a mechanical exfoliation technique that removes the top-most damaged layer of your facial skin (the dermis). The layer of skin being removed during the microdermabrasion treatment is not deep, which means that there is little to no downtime associated with this procedure. Usually, the only side effect is that the skin may appear to be extra “pink” for a short time following the treatment.
At Northshore Dermatology, Dr. Tabor uses a state of the art microdermabrasion machine that incorporates tiny exfoliating crystals to remove the dull, dead outer layers of the skin – all with very little disturbance to your overall comfort. The results of this treatment are a more youthful, firm and glowing skin tone that matches the results of receiving numerous facial treatments in a short period of time.
Like most skin rejuvenation techniques, microdermabrasion often requires more than one treatment to be completed in order to fully reduce or remove the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and unwanted pigmentation. These Microdermabrasion facial treatments should be scheduled out over a period of time to ensure that the delicate layers of facial skin are not disturbed and your skin is not damaged in the process of rejuvenation.
