Microdermabrasion in Hollywood, FL
Using a jet of microscopic crystals to remove imperfections, microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin’s upper surfaces to create a smoother, more even appearance. It is a popular treatment for everything from fine wrinkles to acne scars to inconsistencies in pigment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?
If you are in good health, in your 50s or 60s, and would like to improve your skin quality, you may be the right candidate for microdermabrasion. The treatment may also be combined with injectables, laser treatments, or radiofrequency face contouring. Many cosmetic doctors recommend microdermabrasion treatments in advance of fillers for the best possible result.
According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, women who have active rosacea, lupus, psoriasis, or extreme acne should be extremely cautious when considering microdermabrasion. It can exacerbate those conditions and any lesion or open sore (such as cold sores).
How Is Microdermabrasion Performed?
Microdermabrasion is performed without anesthetic using a diamond-tipped wand. There are several systems, but at this clinic, we use the highly regarded Ultrapeel® from Europe. Non-invasive and relatively painless, the procedure vacuums the surface layer of skin, allowing for the removal of dead skin cells and imperfections and the stimulation of new skin growth.
What Is the Recovery for Microdermabrasion Like?
Most women experience some redness, which may persist for 24 to 48 hours. Excluding complications, there is virtually no downtime or recovery period. This is why it is recommended as a repeat treatment. Many patients undergo Untrapeel® treatments once a month to maintain results.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect From Microdermabrasion?
Women and men looking for smoother, more evenly toned skin are often very happy with the results of microdermabrasion. Fine wrinkles should be diminished, acne scars and other imperfections made less visible, and the texture and tone of the skin’s surface improved and refined. Hyperpigmented spots may also become less prominent. Best of all, many women and men report that their skin appears to glow with health and vitality.
With the right care, results should last from treatment to treatment, once every one or two months. That care includes the proper use of sunscreen and staying out of the direct sun, staying hydrated and moisturizing skin, and avoiding scratching. Further, certain medications should be avoided following the treatment, including products containing glycolic, beta hydroxy, retinol, or benzoyl peroxide.
