What Is Microdermabrasion?

The Med Spa at the Park strives to provide our patients on the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas with top-quality skincare services. Whether you’re wanting to maintain a healthy youthful appearance or improve a skin condition, microdermabrasion is just one of many treatment options we provide to assist you in meeting and maintaining your skincare goals.

Microdermabrasion provides a safe, effective way to exfoliate dead skin cells and buildup on the skin’s surface layer. By exfoliating in this way, the skin is left with a much smoother, healthier, and brighter appearance.

Microdermabrasion is effective for many different skin conditions, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dull-looking complexion
  • Blackheads
    • Enlarged pores
  • Acne
  • Age spots
  • Discoloration associated with acne
  • Scars

Microdermabrasion

What to Expect

This treatment is provided by our medical aesthetician. The skin is cleansed and prepared thoroughly. Microdermabrasion is then performed with an abrasive wand that is moved over the skin, removing dead cell layers. A vacuum-like suction simultaneously removes dead debris, leaving the skin with a renewed and healthy glow.

Our microdermabrasion device provides complete customization, allowing our aesthetician the freedom to choose the right depth of abrasiveness based on the area being abraded and your overall skincare needs. Our aesthetician will then choose facial products such as masks, serums, and moisturizers to further hydrate and nourish your skin.

After the procedure, your skin may have a pink appearance that can last for a few minutes to a few hours. Your skin should look and feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Patients can return to normal activities, as well as most normal skincare routines. Patients should also wear sunscreen and be aware of sun exposure.

Recommended Number of Treatments

This depends on a variety of factors and the patient’s initial skin condition. Because skin cell turnover and regeneration happen in a month’s time, most patients find that once every 4 weeks is optimal for maintaining a healthy skin appearance. However, microdermabrasion may be recommended more often depending on the skin’s condition.

Microdermabrasion can also be greatly enhanced by the facial products being used at home. Our aesthetician is happy to speak with you about a customized skincare regimen that will further improve and maintain your microdermabrasion results to keep your skin clear and healthy all year long.

Microdermabrasion in Mobile, Alabama, is a safe FDA-approved skin treatment that can renew and rejuvenate your skin, improving texture for a more youthful appearance.

This treatment exfoliates the skin by creating abrasions on the skin that are too small to see or even feel. This process effectively removes layers of dead cells that make the skin look drab and dull, revealing fresh new skin layers. Rejuvenating the skin in this way also increases the rate of collagen production, causing skin to look great from the inside out.

Which Issues Can Be Treated Using Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is able to treat a wide variety of skin issues that come about as a result of aging, sun damage, and environmental factors. This procedure can effectively address fine lines, age spots, wrinkles, enlarged pores, rough patches, stretch marks, acne scarring, and melasma.

Microdermabrasion vs. Dermabrasion

Many people confuse this process with dermabrasion, which is “sanding” the skin to exfoliate it and make it smoother. Microdermabrasion is a gentler and more advanced technique.

Microdermabrasion uses minuscule crystals that are sprayed across the surface of the skin in a controlled stream. These exfoliate the skin, making it smoother, more vibrant, and younger looking. Dermabrasion uses a motorized tool called a dermabrader, which has a rough surface.

Dermabrasion is more invasive and treats deeper skin layers, whereas microdermabrasion is gentler and focuses specifically on the superficial layer. Because of this, it is safe for most skin types, as opposed to dermabrasion, which is primarily used on lighter complexions.

The Microdermabrasion Treatment Session

In microdermabrasion, a handheld device is used to exfoliate the superficial skin layer. Typically, this is performed using either a diamond-tipped wand or a handheld device that sprays very tiny crystals across the skin’s surface. These aluminum oxide and sodium bicarbonate crystals remove the outer layer of the skin, which is essentially composed of dead cells. Simultaneously, the device removes dead skin cells by suction.

There is no need to administered anesthesia to numb the treatment region, since there is no pain felt during this treatment. It is quite gentle and comfortable.

After the treatment session is completed, a moisturizer and sunscreen will be applied on the face. There is no downtime or recovery time required after a microdermabrasion treatment, so patients can immediately return to their daily schedule.

The new skin revealed by microdermabrasion looks very pink at first; this effect will recede after a few weeks. The skin will look visibly softer and brighter than ever before. Multiple treatment sessions are needed to achieve the best results.

Microdermabrasion Cost

The exact cost of microdermabrasion varies depending on where you choose to go for your treatment. Its price is also affected by the number and location of the treatment areas.
