What is Microdermabrasion?
Surgery is not the only way to restore a clear, youthful glow to the skin. Microdermabrasion, a procedure that removes dead skin cells from the face, chest, and hands using mechanical abrasion techniques, effectively decreases sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and other imperfections with little to no downtime.
This physical exfoliation is key to stimulating an increase in collagen production and rejuvenation, providing each patient with dramatic improvements in the tone, texture, and color of their skin. You can see the difference by browsing some microdermabrasion before and after pictures, or call us today to set up a consultation with our skin care expert.

How is Microdermabrasion Performed?
Microdermabrasion is performed in the comfort of our med spa, and each treatment typically lasts 35 to 45 minutes. Your skin will be cleansed, and no anesthesia is necessary. The procedure is performed with a medical-grade microdermabrasion machine. The Derma-Pod Turbo Flow System produces a constant vortex rotational projection, resulting in a perfectly safe and even abrasion.
Preparing for Your Microdermabrasion Procedure
We will go over your medical history and talk about your goals for the procedure. All questions will be answered. To prepare, we may ask you not to take certain medications or refrain from some lifestyle choices, such as smoking, which have been shown to reduce healing and promote complications.
One of the best parts about Microdermabrasion is that there is little to no downtime, making it a perfect last-minute beautification tool. You may experience some redness in the treatment area, which should go away within a few hours. It is important to avoid direct sunlight for at least a week following the treatment and to wear sunscreen to protect your skin. Also, do not apply foundation to the skin for at least 24 hours.
How Much Does a Microdermabrasion Procedure Cost?
Depending on the patient’s specific skin care goals, Microdermabrasion costs may vary. Some people may need only one treatment while others would benefit more from multiple sessions. Your doctor will discuss microdermabrasion cost and financing options with you during your initial consultation, while at the same time coming up with a customized treatment plan for you.
Is Microdermabrasion Right for Me?
You may be a good candidate for microdermabrasion if you are in good physical and emotional health, and you want to correct any of the following imperfections:
- Age spots
- Dark pigmentation
- Enlarged pores
- Small scars and surface acne
- Sun-damaged skin
Microdermabrasion is not a cure for heavily damaged skin however. If you are suffering from active acne, warts, or rosacea; if you have had a recent herpes outbreak; or if you have unstable diabetes or other autoimmune system disorders, you may not be a suitable candidate. Discuss your medical history with your doctor prior to undergoing the procedure.
