If you want glowing, vibrant-looking skin, your skincare routine must include exfoliation. At-home exfoliants can only remove the most superficial layers of dead skin cells. For a deeper resurfacing treatment, visit Renew MD and let our trained medical aestheticians use microdermabrasion to give you luminous, fresh skin

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

Microdermabrasion removes the dull, lifeless layers of skin and stimulates cell turnover, bringing new, brighter skin cells to the surface. Many at-home treatments call themselves microdermabrasion, but they are vastly different from professional microdermabrasion. By removing the outermost layers of skin cells, microdermabrasion reveals skin that feels softer and looks rejuvenated. Repeated treatments can shrink pores, improve hyperpigmentation, and improve skin tone and texture. 

How Often Should You Get Microdermabrasion?

To keep up with the rate of skin cell growth and turnover, we recommend microdermabrasion every four to six weeks. This makes sure you always have a fresh, new layer of healthy skin to present to the world. You will see continuous improvements with ongoing sessions, and many of the best benefits will only appear after several treatments. 

What is Microdermabrasion Treatment Like?

Some people describe microdermabrasion as feeling like light scratching or being licked by a cat. Some people report that they find the treatment relaxing. You will not feel any discomfort and can relax during your session. The microdermabrasion wand glides over your skin, using a gentle but thorough exfoliating surface to buff away the old, lifeless skin cells. Treatment takes about 75 minutes to treat the entire face thoroughly.

What Results Will I See With Microdermabrasion?

You will immediately see the fresh, healthy glow of youthful skin. You will also see improvements including:

  • Smaller pores
  • More even skin tone
  • Decreased hyperpigmentation
  • Improved acne scarring
  • Smoother skin texture
  • Better absorption of products

When paired with a skin regimen that meets your needs, the results can be enhanced.  

Is There Any Downtime With Microdermabrasion?

Your skin may look flushed for a day or two after treatment. This might feel like a mild sunburn. You can maximize your results and protect your skin with consistent use of sunscreen and avoiding sun exposure. You do not have any downtime and can go back to all of your usual activities

Am I A Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is safe and effective for most people. If you want to see brighter skin that looks younger and smoother, you may be a good candidate. People with acne may make an excellent candidate since we use crystals made from sodium bicarbonate that let our microdermabrasion work on acne breakouts or other skin sores. 

I have been going to renew for the past 6 years and wanted to let other know why. The staff has always been very friendly to me from the time i arrive, to after my treatments are done. You definitely feel special when you walk out the door. The location is very nice and has the feel of a high end medical spa, as it should. I have had facial, microderm, etc, and have always been happy with the results.
