Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-chemical facial rejuvenation treatment.  The desired cosmetic results are achieved by exfoliating the top layer of skin and thickening the underlying collagen fibers.  It is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the United States today.  Microdermabrasion is effective in improving the appearance of

    ♦ Uneven skin tone

    ♦ Uneven, coarse skin texture

    ♦ A dull skin appearance

    ♦ Sun damaged skin

    ♦ Hyperpigmentation, such as sun and age spots

    ♦ Melasma or pigmentation from pregnancy

Following the procedure, patient's skin will feel and look smoother, brighter, younger and healthier.


Microdermabrasion is not an invasive laser procedure.  The treatment is performed with a handheld device that gently exfoliates the top layers of skin, exposing the new skin cells underneath.  This results in a fresher healthier skin appearance.  The procedure is not painful and feels like scratching the skin surface.  An anesthetic before the procedure is not necessary.  Each treatment usually takes from 30-45 minutes to complete.


No recovery period or downtime is needed after microdermabrasion.  Patient's skin sometimes becomes flaky and slightly red in the first few days after treatment.  Proper after care instructions will be discussed to speed the healing process.
