What is Sapphire microdermabrasion?

November 15, 2020

If you are looking for a clearer complexion and improved skin tone, you may feel overwhelmed at the various cosmetic treatments available at Chevy Chase Dermatology. Luckily, Dr. Margaret Summerville and her team of providers are excited to offer solutions that work, including our highly desirable Sapphire microdermabrasion service.

What is the Sapphire microdermabrasion treatment?

Our provider in Chevy Chase, MD describes the Sapphire microdermabrasion treatment as a exfoliation treatment that can provide instant results. This treatment uses specially refined crystals that are utilized at a high velocity on the skin’s surface to exfoliate away dead skin cells while promoting the generation of new ones, ensuring a more youthful appearance and glow to the skin. The device is a pen-like device that uses a special vacuum nozzle that suctions the skin to ensure lymphatic drainage while removing loose skin cells at the same time. This standalone treatment provides amazing results, and is commonly used for patients who have complaints of:

  • Dull, stressed skin
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Large, open pores
  • Mature skin
  • Hyperpigmentation (age spots/sun spots)
  • Noticeable scar tissue
  • Acne scarring

Does the Sapphire microdermabrasion treatment hurt?

At Chevy Chase Dermatology, we want patients to feel comfortable before, during, and after their treatments performed in our office. With the Sapphire microdermabrasion procedure, no anesthetic is needed. Most patients find that the treatment is relatively comfortable and any slight discomfort is well-tolerated. During the initial consultation appointment with Dr. Margaret Summerville, patients can ask questions about what they can expect during their treatment. Patients can also ask about routine Sapphire microdermabrasion appointments to continually improve their appearance with time. Regular treatments will slow the overall signs of aging while keeping the skin hydrated, glowing, and more youthful!
