 Are You a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?

     While microdermabrasion is most effective for patients in the early stages of aging, teens have also benefited from this technique. Microdermabrasion can reduce mild acne scarring and hyperpigmentation, and improve the appearance of poorly textured skin, fine lines, and large or clogged pores. The procedure is considered effective for both dark- and light-skinned patients.



The Microdermabrasion Procedure
Prior to the procedure, the treatment provider will supply a list of instructions that must be followed for a number of days before treatment, including
  • no sun exposure
  • discontinuing the use of specific topical agents, such as Retin A

Microdermabrasion treatments are normally conducted without anesthesia in Dr. Harts office.

During the microdermabrasion treatment, Dr. Hart presses a device against your skin, which causes a gentle abrasion through a fine crystal spray that breaks up dead skin and other imperfections. There are many materials that may be used, including aluminum oxide crystals, sodium bi carbonate crystals, diamond-tipped crystals, or salt crystals.

Manufacturers have also developed technology that does not require the use of crystals. In this case, a vacuum-type device removes the dead skin. The treatment works much like an exfoliation with vacuum action that removes imperfections, buffs the skin, enhances skin texture, and improves circulation and lymph flow. The treatment does not cause discomfort or skin laceration.

Your face may be slightly red for an hour after treatment.

Multiple treatments may be required in order to achieve the results you're looking for. You'll need a daily skincare regimen and follow-up treatments to maintain the benefits.
