Overview

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that removes the outermost layer of damaged skin to reveal the underlying smoother, firmer skin. This is performed using a small and mildly abraded wand like instrument connected to a machine that provides mild suction, a combination which removes surface damaged, dead skin. Anesthesia is not required, as the microdermabrasion treatment is relatively painless other than a minor tingling as wand removes the damaged skin. Microdermabrasion is an effective treatment for all skin types, is virtually risk free from side effects other than minor redness immediately following treatment and does not require a recuperation period. Our team of skilled Aestheticians at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery will work closely with you to determine if microdermabrasion is an appropriate treatment method for you.

Microdermabrasion Procedure

Before the procedure, the Aesthetician will ask about any skin conditions the patient may have (such as acne, eczema, dermatitis, and inflamed rosacea) or any topicals that may make the patient’s skin sensitive (such as retinols, or other exfoliants). The Aesthetician will also ensure that the patient has no opens wounds of sores that could be irritated or infected by the microdermabrasion. Once the patient’s face has been cleansed and prepared, the microdermabrasion treatment can take from 30 – 60 minutes to complete. The Aesthetician will carefully use the microdermabrasion equipment to polish the skin while suctioning away the dead skin cells.

What To ExPect

Patients should not expect pain and swelling after a microdermabrasion treatment. They can expect some slight pinkness of the skin, and but there is generally no pain.

Microdermabrasion FAQs

Microdermabrasion vs. Peels?

Chemical peels vary in strength from light peels, which have results similar to microdermabrasion to deep peels for more intense results. Recovery usually takes 7 – 8 days for a deep peel. During the recovery the patient will need to apply special post peel products. Chemical peels results can last from a few months for a light peel to years for a deep peel.

Sandblasting The Face?

While early versions of microdermabrasion were essentially like running a sandblaster over the face, leaving particles behind, modern microdermabrasion uses tools that give the technician more control. Current microdermabrasion treatments gently loosen and remove dead skin cells, which are then vacuumed away for smooth, polished skin. 

After Care Tips?

Patients should always be vigilant about using sun protection, especially for the first week after their microdermabrasion procedure. Patients should speak to the Aesthetician after their treatment about the best skin care products to maintain their results. Once the dead skin cells are removed, products are better able to penetrate and treat the skin.
