Having great-looking skin can go a long way to helping you feel your best. However, your skin does not always cooperate. Sun damage, age spots, uneven tone or texture, acne scars and other imperfections can keep your skin from looking its best and can be tough to get rid of. Consequently, many of our patients have enjoyed smoother, fresher, more even, younger-looking skin without lasers or chemical peels using microdermabrasion.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a process in which we use a special handpiece to exfoliate the top layer of your facial skin at high speed with a specially designed handpiece. By removing this top layer, we stimulate collagen production and allow fresher, smoother, more even skin to surface as you heal.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you are dealing with issues like hyperpigmentation, acne scars, sun damage or any condition that causes imperfections in the skin and do not want a laser or chemical treatment, microdermabrasion can be a great option for you. At your consultation, Wendy Brown, RN, will discuss your specific skin concerns with you and subsequently help you decide if microdermabrasion is the right option.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
At Aspire Skin + Wellness, we use a very successful microdermabrasion system called the MegaPeel system. First, Wendy will use the unique handpiece to gently exfoliate the skin on your face. You may feel some scratchiness as the handpiece does its work. Some patients say it feels like a gentle massage. At the same time, while removing the dead skin, the handpiece also vacuums it up and away from your face. Once the procedure is complete, there will be some redness, tenderness and swelling. However, this should fade over the next few days as the skin heals. For best results, we recommend 4-6 treatments.
