Microdermabrasion is an aesthetic treatment that uses a mildly abrasive instrument to gently remove the thick, uneven outermost layer of the skin. This stimulates new growth, leaving you with a smoother, more youthful complexion.
Microdermabrasion can be used to:
- Exfoliate the skin
- Soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce pore size
- Improve age spots
- Remove blackheads
- Treat acne symptoms
- Lessen the appearance of acne scars
During microdermabrasion, a hand-held device exfoliates the skin. At the same time, an attached vacuum removes dead or loosened skin. The treatment lasts about 45 minutes, during which you may feel a mild vacuum-like or scratching sensation as the dead skin cells are lifted away.
Prior to microdermabrasion, dermaplaning provides an extra boost of exfoliation through the removal of vellus hairs (peach fuzz).
PRP Facials, PRP Injections, and SkinPen treatments can complement microdermabrasion treatments, as all treatments have similar goals revealing younger-looking and brighter skin.
While there is no downtime associated with the treatment, some patients may experience subtle tenderness or flushing following microdermabrasion.
It’s common to require multiple sessions of microdermabrasion, depending on the skin concern you’re addressing. Typically, clients also choose to repeat sessions to maintain their results. Your provider at Fargo Center for Dermatology can help you determine a maintenance plan that works with your lifestyle and ensures lasting results.
