Microdermabrasion is an effective, non-surgical way to get rid of acne scars, fine wrinkles, and sunspots by exfoliating the top layers of the skin. No chemicals or laser beams are used. Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates your skin, leaving it smooth and fresh. Microdermabrasion also stimulates cell production, helping your skin rejuvenate faster than normal. Also called the lunchtime peel, Microdermabrasion takes approximately 45 minutes and has no downtime.
Simply put, Microdermabrasion is one of the most effective ways to maintain healthy skin that feels as good as it looks. For those struggling with mild to moderate acne, Microderm can be a monthly preventative treatment. If you are noticing premature signs of aging such as skin discoloration, wrinkles, and sun damage, microdermabrasion can change the texture and imperfections in your skin, giving you a smoother, younger appearance.
Microderm is the preferred method to gently buff away dry and damaged skin layers. Or, if you are otherwise happy with the condition of your skin but are looking for a monthly "refresher," Microderm offers a winning combination.
How long does Microdermabrasion take?
Microdermabrasion treatments take about 30-45 minutes. The number of Microderm treatments required is based on the severity of the skin condition; however, our clients usually opt for packages of 5 to 8 to get optimal results.
What are the side effects of Microdermabrasion if any?
Patients usually see slight flaking for several days following the treatment. There is no downtime associated with this procedure. You can resume your daily activity immediately; however, we recommend wearing sunscreen if you plan to be outside in the sun.
How long does the effect of Microdermabrasion last?
The duration of your Microdermabrasion results are fairly long (several weeks), however, it depends on the severity of the skin damage and the number of treatments received. While you may require up to two treatments per month initially, with time most of our clients need only one treatment a month, which fits well as a part of their routine monthly skin care.
What can I expect after a Microdermabrasion Treatment?
Microdermabrasion is often called a "lunch hour" treatment because it's a quick procedure that can be performed during your lunch hour with little or no discomfort. The treated skin may be pink after the treatment, but this will usually fade within a few hours. You can apply makeup soon after undergoing Microdermabrasion to conceal any visible signs of the treatment.
Who are the best candidates for Microdermabrasion?
Although Microdermabrasion is a very safe procedure, it is not the best option for everyone. Certain skin types and conditions can be negatively affected by the treatment. For some, Microdermabrasion can even result in significant scarring. Patients with severe rosacea, active acne, eczema, or dermatitis are not good candidates for Microdermabrasion. For patients who cannot undergo Microdermabrasion, non-ablative facial treatments such as IPL photofacials, and facials are available. Ask an Amerejuve representative if a microdermabrasion is right for you.
