Over time, it is not unusual to start noticing dullness and an uneven texture in your skin. If you are looking for a treatment that can improve your complexion, leaving it smoother, brighter, and more even, you should consider microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion at our office in Plymouth Meeting can be used as a solo treatment or to be used in tandem with other procedures. At Metro Laser, our medical estheticians can help you navigate your way through the maze of treatment options to make sure you end up with the results you are trying to achieve.
The Microdermabrasion Process
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure performed in our Plymouth Meeting office. An esthetician uses a special hand-held instrument with microcrystals to lightly remove the top layer of your skin to reveal the fresh, new skin beneath. The level of exfoliation is deeper than what can be obtained with dermaplaning. Most of the cells removed are dead superficial skin cells that essentially dull your skin’s surface.
The special instrument used engages fine crystals which are rubbed on your skin with a special wand to gently remove the surface layer of your skin. The procedure takes about 40 minutes for your face and an additional 20 minutes for your neck. While most people only consider microdermabrasion for facial skin improvement, it can be used on almost any area of your body.
Once completed, you may notice mild redness or feel a sensation similar to a mild sunburn. These effects resolve within hours.
Recovery time after a microdermabrasion appointment is minimal, with most clients returning to their usual activities immediately.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Microdermabrasion?
Since the goal of microdermabrasion is to improve your complexion, this treatment is most effective at improving overall evenness of skin tone and texture. The appearance of certain types of scars can also improve.
Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin tones. Since it is a chemical-free treatment, it is typically safe for sensitive skin types. Our experienced estheticians will suggest treatments that are appropriate for your skin and treatment goals.
You will love how your skin looks and feels after treatment prompting you to repeat this treatment at regular intervals. Our Plymouth Meeting staff will work with you to design a specific schedule of microdermabrasion treatments.
