Microdermabrasion is a popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure that removes the uppermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, chest, and hands by mechanical abrasion.

Microdermabrasion represents an excellent way to tackle the following concerns:

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Age spots
  • Dark pigmentation
  • Small scars
  • Surface acne
  • Enlarged pores

What Is Microdermabrasion and How Is It Performed?

Microdermabrasion is an effective crystal-free exfoliation treatment that uses a microdized diamond tip handpiece to gently exfoliate the uppermost layer of skin, removing dead skin cells. This leaves the skin beneath exposed, promoting the growth of new, fresh skin while stimulating the production of collagen.

Microdermabrasion can be uncomfortable but is not normally painful. It is usually performed in a dermatologist’s or doctor’s office and can be performed on the face, neck, chest, back, and hands. Your microdermabrasion clinician may recommend a series of four to six treatments for best results, with healing time in between.

Microdermabrasion may be suitable for people who want to improve their facial appearance but do not want the cost, risk, or downtime associated with invasive cosmetic surgery.

Microdermabrasion Recovery and Healing

Depending on the area treated, most people can return to work immediately following treatment with microdermabrasion, as there is virtually no recovery time. You will probably experience some redness on your skin after the microdermabrasion treatment, which typically lasts only a few hours. Your skin may also feel slightly sunburnt or wind burnt, but moisturizer will help to ease this. You will find the excellent post-treatment care and advice helpful from the dedicated staff from the Parkcrest team.
