Aging causes undesirable aesthetic issues like unhealthy-looking skin and a tired, drab overall appearance. If you’re like many Nashville women and men experiencing these issues, you may want to think about a microdermabrasion treatment.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michael H. Gold and the skin specialists at Gold Skin Care Center are experts at facial rejuvenation. If you’re looking to refresh dull, aging skin in a safe and effective manner, Nashville microdermabrasion specialists Dr. Gold and staff invite you to schedule a visit for a skin rejuvenating treatment today.
Let’s take a look at the 13 benefits of a microdermabrasion treatment.
What is Microdermabrasion?
First of all, it’s important to understand what the procedure is and what it does to refresh your appearance. A microdermabrasion treatment gently removes the dull top layer of skin to reveal the fresh, younger-looking skin underneath.
It does this with a minimally abrasive device that scrubs your skin with very fine crystals, gently buffing the skin’s damaged top layer. As it does this, the device also purges the crystals and the dead skin cells that have built up. This allows the underlying layer of new skin to grow; it also sparks the production of collagen, restoring smoothness and firmness to your skin.
The overall result is a noticeably rejuvenated appearance.
Microdermabrasion Addresses a Variety of Cosmetic Concerns
Patients choose to undergo a microdermabrasion facial for a variety of specific skin conditions, including:
- Fine facial lines
- Sun damage
- Skin discoloration
- Superficial scarring (including from acne)
- Age or sun spots
- Stretch marks
- Enlarged pores
The Aesthetic Benefits of Microdermabrasion
A microdermabrasion treatment exfoliates your skin by sloughing off the top layer of dull, lifeless, and/or flaking skin, which in turn ramps up collagen production.
But what are the benefits of this? By sloughing off dead skin cells and the dull top layer of skin, you can reasonably expect to see dramatic changes in your skin’s texture, tone, and color after one session, such as:
- Fresher-looking skin
- Diminished wrinkles
- Minimized fine lines
- Smoother skin
- Brighter skin tone
- Better skin color
- Shrunken pores
- Reduced age spots
- Faded scars
- Firmer, tighter skin
- Cleaner-looking skin
- More radiant complexion
- Rejuvenated appearance
The Other Benefits of This “Lunchtime Facial”
For busy women and men, a microdermabrasion facial has other benefits in addition to aesthetic ones. Often referred to as the “lunchtime facial,” one session takes a mere 30 minutes.
Furthermore, a microdermabrasion is:
- Minimally invasive
- Virtually painless
- Little or no downtime
- Safe and effective for all skin types
Results vary according to several factors, such as the severity of the skin issue, the scope of the condition, and the number of treatments you undergo. Nonetheless, results typically last up to 12 months.
You can notice the brighter, more radiant impact on your appearance within a few days of a session. However, to get the longer-lasting benefits that many patients enjoy, it’s common to have between 5 and 10 treatments.
For example, a typical plan starts with two sessions per month for the first 2-3 months and then touch-up treatments every 1-2 months to maintain and prolong the desired effects. With this type of plan, the results improve even more over time, allowing you to enjoy fresher skin and a more youthful appearance.
