Microdermabrasion: Your Path to Great Skin
Microdermabrasion is an effective treatment for skin that looks dull, lackluster, or aged —without the concerns of scarring or other adverse side effects. It is a simple and rapid approach to reveal new, healthier skin hidden under dead surface skin.
This popular in-office treatment is available at Chevy Chase Dermatology in Chevy Chase, MD, to improve your skin's look and health without downtime. Find out whether microdermabrasion is right for you and how it may help your skin below.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Suitable for many skin types, microdermabrasion is a non-surgical method of rejuvenating the skin that can reduce the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. The goal of microdermabrasion is to speed up cell turnover and encourage new cell development by exfoliating the skin using tiny crystals on a special device.
At Chevy Chase Dermatology, the process involves real sapphire grains mounted on a softly vibrating device that passes over skin and gently yet precisely removes dead cells. With this cutting-edge microdermabrasion method, patients always get great results with no downtime.
How Is Microdermabrasion Good for the Skin?
You may notice a great improvement in the tone, texture, and overall appearance of your skin after your first microdermabrasion session.
Microdermabrasion treatments always begin with a complete skin analysis to guarantee patient safety and optimal outcomes. Consider getting this treatment if you want to:
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Manage hyperpigmentation or brown spots due to age or sun damage
- Minimize pores
- Reduce acne scarring
You may get even better results from your microdermabrasion treatment by combining it with one or more procedures, like a facial or chemical peel. In any case, you should always speak to your doctor or a dermatologist before undergoing any cosmetic treatments.
