Microdermabrasion

Has your skin lost its glow or does it have damage caused by age, heredity, sun and other environmental factors? Microdermabrasion can help refresh your skin, giving you a fresh appearance by exfoliating damaged skin and allowing new skin to grow.
 
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is the application of rough, tiny grains to buff away the surface layer of skin. Usually done as a series of treatments, microdermabrasion can minimize fine lines and wrinkles, lighten age spots and improve acne scarring.

Can Microdermabrasion Be Done at Home?
While there are many different types and kinds of microdermabrasion treatments, the best results are attained by having your microdermabrasion done by an experienced skin care professional. Our Radiant Complexions Dermatology staff are trained in microdermabrasion and many other cosmetic skin treatments. They can recommend and offer the best treatment options for your skin.
 
Does Microdermabrasion Hurt?
Many patients compare the feeling of a microdermabrasion to the rough lick of a cat’s tongue. It has also been described as a gritty, sandy feeling. Because it only exfoliates the skin’s surface, microdermabrasions are not considered painful and you can return to work and resume all normal activities immediately. After the microdermabrasion treatment, be sure to use moisturizer and avoid sun exposure for a few days.
 
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
During microdermabrasion, a diamond-tip is used to gently smooth the skin. This exfoliation and rejuvenation of your skin, leaves it looking softer and brighter.
 
Is Microdermabrasion Right for My Skin?
Because microdermabrasion makes subtle changes, it typically works for all skin types and colors. Microdermabrasion treatment is best for issues that are present on the surface of the skin and is not effective for deeper problems such as scars, wrinkles or stretch marks. Schedule an appointment today to learn more about microdermabrasion and to find out if this is the best treatment for your skin.
