Radiant, beautiful skin with microdermabrasion treatment in Lansdale, PA
Our skin can change in appearance for a variety of reasons. Aging, stress, sun exposure, and even environmental pollution can make your skin appear wrinkled and loose. Premature aging of the skin can be especially troubling for those who see a much older reflection staring back at them in the mirror. At the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute, we see many patients who request improvements in the texture, tone, and elasticity of their skin. Microdermabrasion treatments are one way we can assist them in turning back the hands of time to look and feel younger.
Microdermabrasion treatment works by targeting the uppermost layer of skin. A hand held device is used on the surface of the skin, spraying small crystals that will remove dead and damaged skin cells. The gentle abrasion can help cleanse the skin, unclog pores, and even stimulate production of collagen. Collagen helps protect the skin from disease and injury as well as giving it strength and structure.
Microdermabrasion is a great facial rejuvenation tool that can leave the skin looking vibrant, tight, and refreshed. Some of the most common skin concerns addressed with microdermabrasion include:
- Sun spots
- Acne scars and blemishes
- Large or clogged pores
Microdermabrasion is a versatile tool because it is safe for use on most skin types and can address multiple conditions. The treatment itself feels like a gritty massage, similar to the sensation of a pumice stone. It’s not painful and can usually be completed in about 15-30 minutes. While skin will improve after just one session, most patients will need about 8 – 10 microdermabrasion sessions for optimal results.
Side effects from microdermabrasion are minimal. In most cases, patients will notice a pink hue to the skin that might feel like minor sunburn. This should go away within a few days. There is no downtime with microdermabrasion, so you are free to carry on with your routine as normal after your appointment.
Microdermabrasion is not appropriate for some skin conditions. Issues such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea can be aggravated by it. If you are in the Lansdale, PA area and would like to find out if microdermabrasion is right for you, call us today at (215) 392-6636 to set up consultation.
