Microdermabrasion Facial for Glowing Skin

No matter how great your regular skincare regimen is, sometimes, you still end up with uneven, rough, or generally dull skin. And while at-home exfoliation products are a dime a dozen, they often do more harm than good. Do-it-yourself exfoliants tend to contain harsh ingredients that strip your natural moisture levels, overdrying delicate facial skin. Add to that sharp, uneven particles that can scratch the surface of your epidermis, and you’re left with a damaged, uneven complexion. Basically, you end up back where you started.

Microdermabrasion, on the other hand, provides gentle, even exfoliation to effectively remove the thick, unbalanced upper layer of your skin. This resurfacing treatment is highly effective, leaving behind a healthy, glowing, youthful complexion. If you’ve been searching for a microdermabrasion facial near you, you’ve come to the right place. Contact our team for a complimentary consultation.

What is Microdermabrasion?

This minimally-invasive treatment works to exfoliate the upper layer of your skin to improve the appearance of an array of skin issues, including sun damage, acne scarring, uneven pigmentation, and wrinkles, among others. Essentially, microdermabrasion involves “sanding” away the thick, upper layer of your skin to reveal the smooth, glowing tissue beneath.

This time-tested technique has been practiced for over 20 years and is clinically proven to produce significant improvements in overall skin tone and texture. Widely considered safe, medical microdermabrasion treatments utilize a sterile, high-powered instrument to remove dead skin cells, clearing the face of impurities and imperfections.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

At Derma Dolce, our medical microdermabrasion facials utilize a jet of micro-crystals which we propel across your skin to exfoliate away damaged and dead cells. Using a sterile handpiece, we then vacuum away impurities and exfoliated tissue, leaving behind healthy, glowing skin. The procedure encourages enhanced collagen production, cell turnover, and regeneration, giving you firm, healthy, rejuvenated skin.

Because microdermabrasion treatments are minimally-invasive, you will not require topical anesthesia. This gentle and highly efficient technique produces near-immediate results, with continued improvement over a period of several days.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion Facials

Medical microdermabrasion is a highly effective tool that can be used to correct a wide variety of skin issues. The treatment is especially attractive for those who wish to avoid chemical-based treatments, but would like to rejuvenate their skin’s overall tone and texture.

Even Skin Tone

Because microdermabrasion deeply exfoliates your skin, with continued treatments, you’ll notice that your overall skin tone begins to even out. Many causes of uneven skin tone are superficial, and as we remove superficial pigmentation and dead skin cell buildup, you’ll begin to see the smooth, even skin underneath. Patients report seeing improvements in several conditions, including age spots, sun damage, melasma, pigmented lesions, sun spots, and blotchiness, just to name a few.

Reduce Mild Acne Scarring

If you’ve ever suffered from acne, then you know the pain of leftover marks from previous breakouts. Sun exposure and aging can make these marks even more noticeable, and as you age, collagen breakdown can make things even worse. Regular microdermabrasion treatments can improve the appearance of acne scarring by removing the thick, upper layer of skin that forms the scar. This treatment works best for depressed scarring that lies flat against your skin.

Improve Breakouts

Mild to moderate breakouts can benefit from microdermabrasion facials as the procedure removes dead skin cell buildup and oil accumulation from clogged pores. You’ll notice smoother, more even skin tone with regular treatments.

Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of mild fine lines and wrinkles through its extensive exfoliation process. As you age, cell turnover slows down, but medical-grade exfoliation can enhance your skin’s natural turnover process to give rise to a smoother, more youthful complexion.

Enhance Product Absorption

Microdermabrasion has been demonstrated to enhance product absorption by up to 50%. Because it works to remove the thick accumulation of dead cells on the surface of your skin, treatments can help you hydrate your skin more effectively. Many products have difficulty penetrating the thick, outer layer of your epidermis, but after this exfoliating treatment, you’ll notice your everyday skincare products become more effective.

What to Expect With Medical Microdermabrasion

Because microdermabrasion treatments are minimally-invasive, you won’t need to worry about downtime after your facial. Your skin will appear pink and may feel sensitive, but you can typically return to your normal activities directly after the procedure. However, because the top layer of your skin has just been removed, we highly recommend avoiding sun exposure for at least 48 hours. While we always recommend applying sunscreen, it is especially important to do so after a deep exfoliating treatment.

While you may notice slight, immediate improvements, you’ll see the best results with continued microdermabrasion treatments. Generally, we recommend scheduling treatments 7-10 days apart to begin, with ongoing monthly maintenance sessions. To really enhance your results, try one of our signature services, The Derma Dolce Delight! This treatment combines the manual exfoliation of a microdermabrasion facial with a light chemical peel. After treatment, you’re left with dramatic results that can only be achieved through this highly-effective combo.
