Regular exfoliation can rid the skin surface of flakes, bumps, and dullness caused by dead and damaged cells. It is an essential component of any skincare regimen. But just as a professional cleaning by your dentist gives your teeth a much deeper clean than regular brushing, microdermabrasion is a more powerful way to remove dead or damaged skin and bring fresher, younger, more vibrant looking skin to the surface. Extremely popular and effective at treating a wide range of skin imperfections, microdermabrasion is minimally invasive with minimal discomfort and an equally minimal time commitment.
What is Microdermabrasion?
During a microdermabrasion treatment, your doctor will use a handheld device that gently directs a stream of tiny crystal particles on to the targeted areas of your skin. These particles exfoliate the outer layer of skin, and the damaged skin is then suctioned away with a vacuum tool.
Since it is a comfortable, painless, and spa-like procedure, microdermabrasion requires no anesthesia, and you can return to work and all of your regular activities immediately after you’re done. You may notice some mild redness for about an hour after the treatment, but this almost always goes away on its own. Most patients can achieve noticeable results after a series of five to ten treatment sessions spaced one to two weeks apart.
What Can Microdermabrasion Do For Your Appearance?
At Dr. Mariano Busso’s Miami aesthetic dermatology clinic, we use microdermabrasion to address several common skin problems, including:
- acne and acne scars
- stretch marks
- dull-looking complexion
- uneven skin tone and texture
- sun damage
- fine lines and wrinkles
- hyperpigmentation, age spots, and brown spots
- enlarged pores and blackheads
Many patients use microdermabrasion alongside more intense wrinkle and sun-damage treatments like chemical peels or laser resurfacing. This combination allows for faster and more visible results. For many patients, however, microdermabrasion restores the skin to its youthful appearance all on its own.
