One of the best ways to rejuvenate your skin and achieve a healthy, youthful glow is microdermabrasion. This popular exfoliating treatment works by removing the outermost layer of your dead skin to reveal fresh, beautiful skin.
Microdermabrasion is a very versatile treatment as it can address a number of skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and age spots. If you lead a busy life, you may be wondering if there is any downtime with microdermabrasion, keep reading to find out.
The Microdermabrasion Treatment Process
Once one of our expert providers cleanses your treatment area, they will glide a handheld device over your skin to exfoliate it and get rid of a superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells. While you may feel a scratching sensation, you don’t have to worry about any pain. In fact, many patients report that it’s relaxing.
After the treatment, you may notice a bit of redness, which will quickly resolve on its own. Since there is no downtime with microdermabrasion, you’ll be able to return to work and your daily responsibilities immediately. You’ll find that it does not disrupt your day-to-day life and leaves you with incredible results.
In most cases, our expert providers suggest a microdermabrasion treatment every 3 to 4 weeks to enjoy optimal results. It can improve your skin tone and texture on your face, neck, and chest.
Good Candidates for Microdermabrasion
Almost anyone is a good candidate for microdermabrasion. We use special crystals made from sodium bicarbonate rather than aluminum oxide, making this treatment suitable for active acne or open lesions. If you are struggling with mild to acne scarring on your back or face, it may be a good option. This treatment may also be ideal if you are concerned about signs of aging and hope to restore your youth. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of sun damage and hyperpigmentation or look your best before a special event.
If you have sunburns, uncontrolled diabetes or psoriasis, microdermabrasion is not a good option. You can find out whether you could benefit from this treatment during a consultation in our office.
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.
