If you are seeking rejuvenation of the skin that leaves it soft, supple, and youthful, you are not the only one to approach Dr. Margaret Summerville of Chevy Chase Dermatology to find an affordable and reliable solution. One treatment that might be recommended for exfoliating the skin is the Sapphire® microdermabrasion service.

What Is Sapphire® Microdermabrasion?

Sapphire® microdermabrasion is an advanced type of exfoliation treatment. It works by using a handpiece with tiny sapphire crystals to gently remove the outermost layer of skin cells, leaving your skin feeling softer and smoother.

What Can Be Achieved With Sapphire® Microdermabrasion?

This process can help to fade discoloration, reduce scarring, minimize wrinkles, and even out skin tone for a more youthful-looking appearance. Sapphire® microdermabrasion can improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots caused by sun damage as well as acne scars. Additionally, it can reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven texture, and enlarged pores. With regular treatments and proper home care, you can enjoy firmer and more vibrant skin. This is especially true after being combined with pure botanical extract infusions, including licorice extract, rosemary extract, grape seed extract, and green tea extract.

Are There Any Side Effects Associated With Sapphire® Microdermabrasion?

Sapphire® microdermabrasion is a relatively safe treatment with minimal risk of pain or irritation. After the procedure, you may experience some mild redness and inflammation, but this should fade within a few hours. For added protection, it is best to avoid direct sun exposure for at least 72 hours after your session. Additionally, keep in mind that if you are taking any medications that make your skin more sensitive, you may be more prone to irritation and redness.

What Can I Expect During and After My Spa Appointment?

After the first treatment, you will already see results, but to achieve optimal changes, it is recommended that you consider a series of five to six treatments spaced weeks apart. Dr. Margaret Summerville of Chevy Chase Dermatology is a board-certified provider of the American Board of Dermatology and can advise you as to how many treatments you may need to get the results you want to achieve.
