More people are seeking out noninvasive procedures and techniques to rejuvenate their appearance than ever before. While some may have the time to commit to extensive cosmetic surgery, the vast majority of people want something quick, with little downtime, yet still provides dramatic results. Microdermabrasion can fit those requirements and more.
Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive procedure, designed to immediately restore a healthy appearance to the skin. Using the Diamond Tome, the most cutting-edge Microdermabrasion technology available, aestheticians at the Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique will remove the top layer of dead, dry cells, leaving a soft, smooth, radiant complexion. Dehydrated, dull, lifeless skin can be transformed, leaving a youthful appearance. *
Microdermabrasion can improve the look of:
- Fine lines
- Age spots
- Acne scarring
- Crow’s Feet
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks *
Microdermabrasion vs. Traditional Dermabrasion:
Developed with the same theory involved in Dermabrasion, a Microdermabrasion procedure utilizes a gentler technique for skin renewal. While both treatments will provide patients with dramatic results, they should not be confused with one another. *
- More aggressive
- Used to treat blemishes and scars
- General anesthesia necessary
- Performed at an outpatient surgery center
- Takes around an hour
- Bandages applied after treatment
- At home application of ointments
- Requires up to two weeks off work
- Safe for lighter skin only
- Less aggressive
- Takes less than an hour
- Performed in the office
- No downtime
- Patients can return immediately to routine activities
- Patients required to wear sunscreen after treatment
- Used to restore healthy looking skin
- Safe for all skin types
The Ideal Candidate for Microdermabrasion:
Microdermabrasion is an excellent choice for patients of all skin types and tones. Patients looking to regain healthy, glowing skin without a long healing process can make a great candidate for Microdermabrasion. As with any cosmetic procedure, patients should have a clear understanding of the technique, reasonable expectations for their results, and be in generally good health.
Patients with extremely sensitive skin, diabetes, Rosacea, skin inflammation, a bacterial infection, or an active Herpes lesion should not get the Microdermabrasion procedure. A consultation appointment with one of our beauty experts will be scheduled to assist in determining if Microdermabrasion is the right procedure for each individual patient’s needs. *
The Microdermabrasion Procedure:
Microdermabrasion takes less than 30 minutes in the office. The procedure causes little discomfort, so no anesthesia or topical anesthetic is required. After prepping the skin, our skilled aesthetician will use a tiny Diamond Tome wand to gently exfoliate the skin and vacuum away the dead skin cells. The uniquely created diamond-encrusted tool gives a smooth, consistent abrasion without the loose particles and discomfort often associated with older Microdermabrasion devices. As soon as the treatment is complete, patients are free to return home or back to their daily activities. *
Recovery from Microdermabrasion:
Immediately after a Microdermabrasion treatment, the skin may be slightly pink, although this should resolve over the first 24 hours. There is no downtime required after Microdermabrasion, so patients can immediately return to work or school.
Generally, eight to ten Microdermabrasion sessions are required for optimal benefit. Microdermabrasion works excellent on its own; when combined with complimentary procedures, it can provide dramatic, long-lasting results. Treatments that work well with Microdermabrasion include Chemical Peels and Laser Therapy. *
