Microdermabrasion offers a lasting solution to people looking to improve the texture of their skin. Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure where a small pen-like wand is swiped over the skin while blasting and sucking small crystals to remove the dead skin cells. Removal of the dead tissue brings the healthy under-layer of skin to the surface, promoting healthy cell rejuvenation. It works for all skin types, does not require anesthesia and has a downtime (recovery period) of as little as 24 hours.
How do I know if microdermabrasion is for me?
You should consider getting microdermabrasion if you are seeking these results:
- Reduce appearance of stretch marks
- Reduction of age spots and pigmentation imbalances
- Minimize fine age lines and wrinkles
- A renewed fresh skin tone and more youthful appearance
- Reduction of enlarged pores
- Decrease the appearance of scars from trauma, acne, chicken pox, etc.
- Treatment of skin damaged by long-term exposure to the sun
It is recommended that you consult with our professional staff to discuss your goals and expectations.
What should I expect after the procedure?
After the procedure, your skin will appear pinkish and feel dry and tight as if sunburned. This is temporary and usually disappears within 24 hours. You may use moisturizer to counter the effects and avoid direct exposure to sunlight if possible. If you need to be outdoors, use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more.
How often should I get it done?
Base on your goals and skin type, your dermatologist or aesthetician would recommend the number of sessions you would need. If done fairly close together, say 7-10 days apart, your skin will be transformed in as little as six treatments.
Is it expensive?
The cost of microdermabrasion will vary, depending whether you go to a dermatologist or at a spa, usually starting at $100 per treatment. Green Leaf Medi Spa offers microdermabrasion packages that are specially priced to be both skin and budget friendly.
