Microdermabrasion rejuvenates and revitalizes your skin and can be performed during your lunchtime. Led by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David B. Brothers, Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta offers microdermabrasion for men and women in Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Decatur, Duluth, and Druid Hills.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion uses a fine jet of crystals to gently and painlessly exfoliate your skin while vacuum suction removes the crystals with the dead skin cells. You’re left with new, softer skin and more even skin texture. In addition to surface exfoliation, microdermabrasion promotes the production of new cells in the deepest layer of the dermis. It also cleans the pores and stimulates collagen production that can further improve skin texture.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
This simple and non-invasive procedure entails virtually no discomfort, down time or recovery. Microdermabrasion is generally indicated for:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age spots, sun damage and hyperpigmentation
- Acne scars, chickenpox scars and stretch marks
- Congested skin, enlarged pores and blemishes
- Dull skin
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion can be successfully used on light or dark skin to treat the face, neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees and hands.
What Do I Need to Do Before Having Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is an excellent option for men and women who want to freshen up their skin without taking time to recover from more extensive treatments. Our medical aestheticians help you understand the benefits of microdermabrasion for your skin, and we recommend that you schedule a personal consultation as a first step.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Microdermabrasion?
All microdermabrasion treatments are performed by our incredibly talented and highly trained aestheticians here at the Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta. We cover your eyes to protect them from the mixture that is used for the treatment. Next, we clean your skin to remove any superficial dirt, oils, and impurities. A small device is used to spray tiny crystals on your skin. The crystals remove dead skin cells and a very small amount of the outermost skin. The device is designed with suction to remove the debris from your skin. One pass of the device is adequate for skin with no imperfections, but multiple passes may be needed to target scars, age spots, and other problems.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Microdermabrasion?
A single session takes less than 30 minutes. We may recommend up to eight follow-up treatments scheduled every one to three weeks.
What to Expect After Microdermabrasion
Patients typically experience some mild redness for about an hour after the procedure.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Microdermabrasion?
You will not have scars after your microdermabrasion treatment. The procedure can actually help with some existing scars.
When Will I See Results?
Your complexion will be brighter immediately after each treatment.
How Long Will the Results of Microdermabrasion Last?
Microdermabrasion produces long-lasting results. The treatment is gentle enough that you can have repeat treatments each month. Combined with our professional skin care products, microdermabrasion is a great way to keep your skin healthy and beautiful.
Additional Procedures to Enhance Your Microdermabrasion Results
Microdermabrasion is extremely effective when combined with a glycolic peel to address discoloration and uneven skin texture.
How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost in Atlanta?
