About the Procedure
What is Microdermabrasion?
Skin is exposed to elements every day which can contribute to damage. From the sun’s rays and pollutants, to the creams and other products you use, your skin tone and texture may be displeasing. Through the treatment in Atlanta, your complexion will appear smoother and brighter, and many patients feel that their skin is more youthful. This non-chemical and non-invasive procedure exfoliates skin, removing the outer layer of dry, dead cells. In conjunction, the treatment stimulates the production of new skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, leaving patients with a more even skin tone. Because microdermabrasion allows products to penetrate the skin more easily, the treatment improves results gained from using anti-aging and skin-bleaching products.
Can the Procedure Help with Acne?Microdermabrasion can be a good treatment for certain types of acne and acne scarring. This treatment allows us to reduce the amount of comedones from forming and remove oils and dirt that can cause pores to become clogged and form break outs. During your initial consultation, our skincare professionals can determine if this is the best treatment for you.
Microdermabrasion with CrystalsOur basic microdermabrasion facial utilizes a hand piece that allows the crystals to release at a certain rate, and gives more of a sort of “sand blasting” effect that removes the dead skin, dirt and oils along with the suction to vacuum the crystals back up into a canister to be properly disposed of.
Microdermabrasion with Diamond TipOur Diamond Glow facial utilizes a hand piece that the diamond tip grit attaches to. This grit buffs and breaks up the dead skin and dirt, along with the suction that is picking up the debris and vacuuming out the clogged pores simultaneously. At the end of this treatment, all of the debris collected from the skin is collected into the waste jar and able to be seen by the patient.
Can Microdermabrasion Help With Stretch Marks?Microdermabrasion can be used to address many issues, stretch marks being one of the many. The treatment addresses the outermost layer of the skin and stimulates collagen and elastin to help repair the stretch marks, which are areas that the collagen and elastin that support the skin have previously ruptured.
What Are the Microdermabrasion Benefits?Having tried microdermabrasion once, you probably want to repeat it. The effect of microdermabrasion will be noticeable after the first procedure. With no downtime, we recommend our patients receive this procedure every two to three weeks. With packages available, our patients who have treatment on a regular basis see cumulative results.
