Learn More About Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a minimally abrasive treatment that uses a special tool to gently sand the skin. This process removes thick and uneven skin and can treat a variety of skin problems, including age spots and blackheads, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, acne, and acne scars.
Individuals who are looking to brighten their skin, treat sun damage, acne scars, fine lines, and more can often benefit from microdermabrasion. This treatment is effective for all skin types and tones. A consultation can help to determine if this treatment is right for you.
Microdermabrasion relies on a fine diamond wand assisted by vacuum to smooth and resurface the skin. The treatment is painless and you can expect to quickly resume your normal activity. Best for rough, discolored, sun damaged skin, it will leave you with a more radiant and smoother appearance.
Our Microdermabrasion process is crystal-free and invigorates the skin by promoting collagen synthesis. We apply an initial deep-cleansing facial, and often follow the Microdermabrasion with a mild peel solution to heighten the effect to leave you with a smooth and glowing appearance.
Patients can return to their everyday routine right after treatment, as there is no downtime required. Mild swelling and redness may occur, though it should resolve quickly. It is recommended that patients wear sunscreen outside to protect from UV rays.
Immediately after microdermabrasion, there are some steps you can follow to ensure the best, longest-lasting results. Be sure to keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water. It’s also best to begin a gentle and hydrating skincare routine shortly after the treatment as directed by Dr. Shienbaum. In addition, you should keep the skin cool, avoiding activities that raise your body temperature such as hot showers, saunas, or exercise. Finally, avoid sun exposure as much as possible and wear SPF if you go outside.

There are some at-home treatments and products that work similarly to professional microdermabrasion treatments. However, these are less thorough than professional microdermabrasion. It’s also best to seek professional treatment so that you do not experience an adverse skin reaction, which a professional is trained to predict and avoid.
Microdermabrasion is not painful, as only the surface layers of the skin are affected by the treatment.
This depends on the reason you are seeking microdermabrasion, your skin type, and other factors. Some people choose to receive microdermabrasion treatment as frequently as once a week, while others receive the treatment about every two months.
