What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation technique that removes the outermost skin layer, revealing smoother, suppler skin. Skin resurfacing stimulates the circulation of blood to the skin’s surface, making the skin appear firm and healthy. The procedure rejuvenates sun-damaged skin, lessens the appearance of age spots and hyperpigmentation, extracts blackheads, and improves oily skin. It can also reduce fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and acne scars.

What can I expect from my microdermabrasion treatment?

The treatment is non-invasive, pain-free, and does not have any downtime. Our office uses the DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System. This system gently exfoliates the skin using natural diamond chips on the tip of the DiamondTome™ wand. It also vacuums the exfoliated skin cells in a controlled manner. By removing the skin’s outer layer, smoother skin is revealed and growth of new skin is promoted. Our microdermabrasion treatments also include a cleansing, multivitamin mask, and moisturizing protection.

What can I expect from my microdermabrasion treatment?

Most of our patients achieve smoother, softer skin after their first microdermabrasion session. However, several treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results. Depending on the severity of the damage to your skin and the number of sessions you have received, your improved skin should endure. Most people start with two sessions per month and maintain their new look by having one session per month; Dr. LoBuono will advise you on the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired results.

What are the risks associated with microdermabrasion treatments?

Any discomfort from microdermabrasion is fleeting. There will be some redness and swelling, which will subside after a few hours. For the next couple of days, expect your skin to appear dry and flaky. Treated skin will also be extra sensitive to sun exposure, so sunscreen is required when outdoors.
