Microdermabrasion is another non-surgical way to freshen and rejuvenate the skin of your face. At Delray Beach Plastic Surgery, we make use of a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand the skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, and sun damage.
There are two types of microdermabrasion treatment devices: One is a hand-held device that streams tiny crystalline microparticles across the skin with an attached vacuum that simultaneously suctions those exfoliating crystals back into the machine, along with the dead or loosened skin. The other is a diamond-tipped wand that is gently moved across your skin to slough off the top layer (epidermis) and stimulate new skin growth. This technique also helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger-looking complexion. Collagen is a protein in your skin that’s abundant when you’re a child and makes skin appear taut and smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin.
- Eliminate age spots and blackheads
- Eliminate hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin)
- Exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance
- Lessen the appearance of stretch marks
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores
- Treat acne and the scars left by acne
Your polished new look should be long-lasting, depending on the severity of your skin damage and the number of treatments that you receive. Many people have two microdermabrasion treatments per month at first, and then one per month as part of a maintenance plan.
