For softer, smoother, healthy-looking skin
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure that allows you to rejuvenate and revitalize your skin in an afternoon! As explained in medical journals and a host of woman’s magazines the microdermabrasion procedure uses a fine mist of crystals to smooth skin. The combination of the fine abrasive action of the crystals is coupled with a vacuum suction to remove the dead outer layer of skin bringing the new, softer skin with a more even texture to the surface. Because microdermabrasion is so precise, the procedure is virtually pain-free.
Dr. Nalini Prasad uses the DermaSweep Microdermabrasion machine which uses fine brushes to scrub the skin. Being “crystal free” keeps the crystals from spreading onto your neckline. As the machine gently sloughs off dead skin you will have less blackheads, shrink large pores, and feel soft and smooth skin. The procedure is also performed on both men and women with moderate acne scarring and some facial scars.
Microdermabrasion is ideal to treat sun-damaged skin, age spots, superficial pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles or clogged pores, blackheads and whiteheads, and some acne scars can all be treated. The neck and chest can also be treated to blend the skin and remove any sun-damage often found in that area.
As an acne treatment, Microdermabrasion is successful because of how well it unclogs the pores. When pores are relieved from dirt, oil and dead skin, acne can heal more quickly. Also, when dead skin cells are wiped away, acne causing bacteria cannot survive as easily. While everyone’s situation is unique, most people notice considerable changes in the skin’s tone and texture after after one treatment, and a noticeable reduction in skin imperfections in as little as two treatments.
Microdermabrasion, also known as the “power peel,” is low risk and requires absolutely no downtime. It’s effective on its own, but Microdermabrasion can also be combined with Chemical Peels and laser or light-based treatments like IPL Photofacial. Microdermabrasion can actually improve the effects of both Chemical Peels and Photofacials by consistently removing dead surface skin.
Under the direction of Dr. Prasad, the. microdermabrasion procedure can be done in as little as a half-hour. A complete microdermabrasion program usually requires several treatments depending on your specific needs. Dr. Prasad advises her patients that results are not immediate and several separate sessions/procedures are required to obtain optimal result.
The procedure offers no down time, little discomfort during the procedure, and no anesthesia or recovery time. Patients can immediately return to their normal activities. All skin colors can be treated. It is a wonderful way to achieve younger, vibrant looking skin while still keeping up with your busy lifestyle.
Microdermabrasion is one of the safest rejuvenation procedures on the market today. In the hands of skilled professionals, microdermabrasion can enhance the results of other skin rejuvenating procedures and products. It is unusual to develop any complications from this treatment.
