Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the Minnesota for a reason: it makes your skin look great, without much downtime! Microdermbrasion works by using rough crystals to remove the dead skin cells and the outermost layer of the skin. The result is smoother, more vibrant skin with fewer fine lines and enlarged pores.
When you arrive for microdermabrasion treatment, you will first cleanse your skin to remove any makeup or products that you have applied to your skin. The microdermabrasion treatment then takes approximately fifteen minutes, during which you will be relaxed and feel no discomfort. Immediately following the microdermabrasion appointment, your skin may look rosy, but you will not need to plan for any time off from work or play – all patients continue their normal routines after microdermabrasion treatment.
We sometimes recommend that patients alternate microdermabrasion treatments with a chemical peel, in order to further clean out your pores and improve the texture and appearance of your skin. During your initial consultation, we will review the best treatment regimen for your skin.
Microdermabrasion is an excellent option for anyone who would like to improve the appearance of full skin, or anyone who wishes to shrink enlarged pores or decrease the appearance of fine lines on the skin. Additionally, our acne patients find that regular microdermabrasion treatments (often alternated with chemical peels) help to keep their pores clean, which prevents the development of acne.
