Microdermabrasion is a recent advancement in the field of cosmetic science that is being tagged as the instant facelift. This procedure essentially buffs away the outer surface of the skin using an abrasive tool in order to reveal the younger, fresher skin underneath. Microdermabrasion procedures include:
- SilkPeel Dermal Infusion
- Pristine Diamond Tip
What should I expect from my Microdermabrasion procedure?
The Microdermabrasion procedure calls for an abrasion tool that will be used to break up the stratum corneum, or the outermost layer of the skin. And because the body will react to this as it would in a mild injury, it will automatically begin to replace the lost skin cells with new ones. During the initial part of Microdermabrasion treatment, the patient will experience swelling and redness. Once the outer layer of skin has been buffed away, the newly produced skin cells will make the skin feel smoother and the patient look visibly younger. Sun damage, blemishes, fine lines, and other skin imperfections will be eliminated after the procedure.
Why consider Microdermabrasion?
For patients who want to reveal younger looking skin, Microdermabrasion is the less expensive alternative to chemical peels or Botox. It is a proven way to clear clogged pores and a viable alternative for patients whose skin is too sensitive for anti-acne drugs.
Is Microdermabrasion affordable?
Microdermabrasion sessions are very affordable, each ranging in the lower hundreds. It is much more reasonably priced than other dermal peels or skin resurfacing techniques whose prices could range in the thousands.

When will I see the results of Microdermabrasion?
After the initial swelling and redness has subsided, the effects of Microdermabrasion will become more evident. The waiting time varies with each patient and could take as little as an hour or as much as two days.
How long does Microdermabrasion Last?
Microdermabrasion conducted in regular intervals will maintain the results that are produced during the initial visit. It is believed that over time, deep-seated blemishes will be removed as well.
What are the risks of Microdermabrasion?
The swelling and redness experienced by the patient during the first part of the treatment may last anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days. Certain skin conditions disqualify some patients for Microdermabrasion so it is vital to have an initial consultation before the procedure.
