What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments you can get. Its benefits include softening of fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing out coarsely textured skin, decreasing the appearance of scarring, decreasing pore size, and reducing age spots. Dr. Stuart Lipton of Lewisville, TX offers microdermabrasion to patients in the greater Dallas area.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a great non-invasive anti-aging procedure. Patients who make ideal candidates for microdermabrasion include patients with:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Uneven toned skin
- Minor scarring
Unfortunately, this procedure is not for everybody. Patients with deep scars, warts, diabetes, and auto-immune disorders are not good candidates for this treatment. This procedure is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion Skin Treatment
Microdermabrasion is a safe and effective treatment for improving skin tone, texture, and color. There is no pain or recovery time associated with this procedure, so patients can return to work immediately after their treatment. As opposed to dermabrasion, which is only suitable for fair skin, microdermabrasion is effective for all skin types. This procedure is known to be especially beneficial for Asian and dark-skinned patients who are at higher risk for skin discoloration.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
This treatment is an exfoliation process that removes the uppermost lays of dead skin cells from the face, chest and hands by using a vacuum and pressure system to remove skin cells with tiny crystals. The dead skin is removed, revealing a layer of fresh, new, even toned skin. The results are immediate, and there is no downtime associated with the procedure.
Many patients experience softer, smoother glowing skin after the first treatment. Results of this treatment include:
- A single treatment will improve the appearance of dull, tired skin and can improve breakout-prone areas.
- Extreme cases of acne and for treating signs of aging, a series of approximately six treatments will be most effective.
- It will also enhance topical treatment products because the skin is able to penetrate the product more effectively.
How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost?
The cost of microdermabrasion is dependent on the patient’s skin condition and how many treatments are needed to achieve desired results.
