What Is Involved in Microdermabrasion?

If you are looking for a gentle, affordable way to fix your clogged pores, sun damage, and other skin issues, you should think about receiving microdermabrasion treatments from the Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, Tennessee. This aesthetic treatment will eliminate some of your dead skin cells and give you a bright, attractive complexion.

What Is Involved in Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is an aesthetic technique that is used to fix sun damage, acne problems, fine lines, and many other skin conditions. We will start your appointment by carefully cleaning your skin. This process will open your pores and prepare your tissues for the next step of your treatment. Once you are ready, we will use a specialized tool to gently remove dead cells on the outer layer of your skin. This process is called exfoliation.

After we clear away these dead skin cells, you will begin to produce healthy new cells that will improve the appearance of your complexion. After your treatment is complete, your skin will feel smoother, and your complexion will be bright and even. You will also have an easier time applying makeup and skincare products onto your face.

What Types of Exfoliation Treatments Can I Receive?

We provide many different types of microdermabrasion treatments.


If you select this treatment, we will use a device with a special bristle tip to exfoliate your skin. Since this device has a variety of different tips, we will adjust your treatment to match the condition of your skin. We will also infuse a customized solution into your tissues.

We can choose solutions that will address your acne, pigmentation problems, or other aesthetic issues. In addition to improving your cosmetic challenges, this part of your treatment can be used to hydrate and brighten your skin.


Our Pristine treatment is our most traditional exfoliation option. If you choose this treatment, we will use a device with a diamond tip to remove dead cells from your skin. This specialized device can exfoliate the skin on your face, arms, thighs, back, and other locations.

For example, we are very good at using this device to address a skin condition called keratosis pilaris. If you have this issue, you will have red bumps on your arms or thighs. Our exfoliation treatment can minimize the appearance of these bumps, unclog your pores, and remove some of your dead skin cells. It will usually take us about 45 to 60 minutes to exfoliate your skin with this device.


During an OxyGeneo treatment, we will use oxygen to refresh your tissues. Increasing the amount of oxygen in your target area will improve your blood flow and provide you with healthy-looking, attractive skin. We will also create a customized serum that can fix your fine lines, pigmentation challenges, and other skin problems.

SilkPeel Diamond Dermalinfusion

If you are interested in brightening your skin before a wedding or other important event, you should consider receiving our SilkPeel Diamond Dermalinfusion treatment. During your appointment, we will use a device with a tiny diamond tip to eliminate your dead cells.


If you have sensitive or dry skin, we may advise you to get a JetPeel. During this treatment, we will use oxygen and water to brighten your complexion and smooth your skin. This aesthetic treatment is also a wonderful way to clean your pores and hydrate your facial tissues.

What Issues Can This Exfoliation Technique Be Used to Improve?

We can use this technique to address age-related changes in your skin, acne problems, and many other aesthetic conditions.

Reduce Fine Lines

The structural changes that your skin experiences as you enter your thirties and forties will cause you to develop fine lines around your eyes, mouth, and nose. This aesthetic treatment will fade these signs of age by removing your dead skin cells and encouraging the production of new, healthy tissues.

Fix Acne Issues

You don’t have to be in your teens to develop whiteheads, blackheads, and other types of acne. These blemishes form when some of your hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells, oil, and other materials. Your bumps and pimples can be very visible and uncomfortable, and this skin condition is likely to cause you to feel unhappy about your appearance.

Receiving this exfoliating treatment is one of the best ways to clean your pores and diminish your pimples. Instead of using harsh acne products that can harm your skin, we will use gentle techniques to improve the condition of your pores. As you continue to receive these treatments, your skin will clear, and your breakouts will become less frequent.

Correct Sun Damage

Spending time hiking in nature, going on picnics, or camping can be a great way to socialize with your friends and family members. However, spending a large amount of time in the sun can change the structure of your dermal tissues and cause you to develop age spots and other skin issues at a relatively early point in your life. Fortunately, our exfoliating treatments will decrease the prominence of your sun damage.

Address Pigmentation Problems

In addition to increasing your chance of developing early lines and wrinkles, spending a large amount of time in the sun can cause you to experience pigmentation problems. As you continue to expose your tissues to the sun, your skin may produce higher amounts of a brown pigment called melanin. Sometimes, your melanin production will be uneven, and you will develop brown patches on your skin.

These brown patches, which are also known as sunspots, can make you look older than you really are. Receiving a series of exfoliation treatments will fade these spots and give you an even, radiant complexion.

What Are the Benefits of Receiving This Aesthetic Treatment?

There are several different reasons why you should consider using this aesthetic treatment to fix your skin issues.

It’s Inexpensive

Many cosmetic treatments use chemicals, lasers, and other expensive techniques to improve your appearance. Although these treatments can produce significant results, you have to pay a large amount of money to fix your wrinkles and other skin problems using these methods. Fortunately, microdermabrasion is a much more affordable way to improve your complexion and see real results.

It’s Suitable for Sensitive Skin

If you have very sensitive skin, you may not be able to use harsh acne products to treat your skin problems. We will use a precise, gentle technique to remove dead cells from the surface of your skin. This exfoliation method is an ideal way to fix your clogged pores and acne problems without irritating your skin.

It Has No Downtime

If you use an invasive technique to fix your wrinkles or other skin problems, you might have to spend a long time recovering from your procedure. For example, it’s common to take weeks off from your job after you receive a facelift. If you have a very busy schedule or work at a demanding job, you might not be able to spend a long time away from your responsibilities.

Fortunately, you won’t have to interrupt your schedule to receive this cosmetic treatment. Although your tissues may take a little time to recover from your appointment, you won’t have to stay away from your office or avoid your other responsibilities during this time. In fact, you could decide to get this treatment during your lunch break. After we have finished improving your skin, you’ll be able to drive back to your office.

Can I Perform This Treatment on My Own?

When you started researching this aesthetic treatment, you might have come across businesses that sell at-home exfoliating devices. Although these devices may create small improvements in your skin problems, they are unlikely to provide the same benefits as a professional treatment. Further, you might injure or irritate your skin if you buy a low-quality device or make a mistake during your treatment.

Instead of trying this technique on your own, you should receive a series of professional treatments. We have a lot of experience using this technique to remove dead cells in a safe, efficient fashion. Further, we can recommend beauty products for you. You can use these products to extend the benefits of your treatments without damaging your skin.

When Will My Skin Start to Improve?

Removing your dead skin cells is a good way to quickly improve your complexion. Although your tissues will have a unique response to this exfoliation technique, you are likely to see improvements within two days.

How Many Sessions Will I Receive?

Since this treatment has a cumulative effect, you will notice more dramatic changes in your skin if you receive several sessions. In general, we will suggest that you receive five to 10 treatments. Although we will design a unique treatment plan for you, you will typically start by receiving two sessions every month. You will continue this schedule for the next two to three months.

During the next stage of your treatment, you will receive a session once every one to two months. These maintenance appointments will allow us to preserve the benefits of your initial treatments.

Achieve Beautiful Skin

You don’t have to receive expensive treatments in order to diminish your sun damage, fade your lines, and correct other aesthetic problems. Microdermabrasion is a cost-effective, gentle way to minimize signs of age and achieve smooth, radiant skin.
