Microdermabrasion is a safe, non-invasive epidermal treatment that removes the dead and damaged surface layer of skin cells to reveal healthier new skin cells. It is helping men and women everywhere experience remarkable improvements in skin texture regardless of skin color.
If you are unhappy with age spots, acne scars, stretch marks, wrinkles or flaking skin, you might want to consider microdermabrasion.
The best candidates for microdermabrasion are those patients that:
- Cannot afford to take time off for healing from a chemical peel or laser procedure.
- Don’t want to put off their outdoor activities.
- Have skin sensitivities to chemicals or make-up.
- Have acne-prone skin that has not responded well to other acne remedies.
- Are younger and whose skin is showing early signs of aging.
What do the stars of Hollywood use to keep that youthful glow?
The answer might surprise you. It’s not facelifts or laser resurfacing, but a painless, non-invasive lunchtime procedure known as microdermabrasion. You can have a treatment and return to work immediately. Dr. Steven Hopping performs microdermabrasion for patients to create softer, smoother and fresher looking skin.
Is Microdermabrasion safe?
Yes. The procedure only removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells to reveal the fresher, younger cells beneath. Regardless of your skin’s condition, fine lines and age spots may be erased and acne scars and stretch marks will become less obvious.
Microdermabrasion treatments are not aggressive; they are slow and progressive. Medical-quality microdermabrasion gently “abrades” skin with aluminum oxide crystals applied by Dr. Hopping or a trained aesthetician. It works by exfoliation of the cells from the top layer of the skin reducing the effects of aging, scars and blemishes. It also stimulates the skin to increase collagen production for overall improved skin tone and clarity. Treatments are applied throught a course of weekly or bi-weekly sessions ranging from two to twelve weeks.
After a microdermabrasion treatment, your skin has a fresh, pink glow. Improvement continues throughout your treatment program. This is a “lunchtime” procedure and most patients return to their office, home and activities immediately. Touch-up treatments are recommended to help maintain your results.
Maintaining the Results
Maintaining healthy looking skin is a daily task. Always wear SPF of at least 15 to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Keep your skin moist and fresh with daily cleansing and moisturizing using specially formulated skin care products.
