Microdermabrasion is a skin exfoliation treatment that gently removes the top layer of skin, revealing younger, healthier-looking skin. This non-invasive treatment is ideal for those who want to rejuvenate their skin’s appearance and complexion with little to no downtime or recovery period. It also helps improve dull, oily, or leathery skin texture. Microdermabrasion is the perfect complement to many procedures we offer at DermaHealth of Springfield. This treatment exfoliates your skin in approximately 30 minutes and can be used on any skin type.

Microdermabrasion Overview

Benefits

As we age, environmental factors, such as UV exposure and pollution, as well as eating and lifestyle habits, can affect and sometimes damage the skin’s appearance. Even healthy skin loses some of its elasticity naturally over time, causing wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin texture, age spots, and discoloration. Microdermabrasion can help minimize these skin issues, producing a more radiant complexion. It can treat any skin type and provides many benefits:

  • Improves age spots and blackheads
  • Improves hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin)
  • Exfoliates skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance
  • Lessens the appearance of stretch marks
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces or eliminates enlarged pores
  • Treats acne and scars left by acne

In addition, microdermabrasion encourages the production of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance. It can also help reduce redness caused by rosacea.

Ideal Candidates

Healthy adults who have minor skin conditions or imperfections may benefit from microdermabrasion treatments. Microdermabrasion can safely and effectively treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, and knees. We understand every individual is unique. One of our trained technicians will meet with you prior to performing any procedure to discuss your skincare goals and expectations. We will help tailor a treatment plan to accommodate your schedule and objectives.

Treatment

Microdermabrasion entails little discomfort or recovery time. During treatment, a DermaHealth technician will use a handheld instrument to gently exfoliate and remove the top layer of skin. You may feel a light sanding sensation, but it is not painful. Your technician will perform the procedure in a manner that is comfortable for you. A microdermabrasion treatment session lasts approximately 30 minutes.

Microdermabrasion helps produce thicker, healthier skin. We recommend multiple microdermabrasion sessions because recurring treatments promote higher production of collagen and elastin. We will help you design a plan that accommodates your schedule and budget.

Your skin may be pink immediately following treatment. Most clients notice softer, smoother skin after their first treatment. This procedure may be repeated every two weeks depending on your skin type and condition.
