Crystal Microdermabrasion

What is it?

Microdermabrasion is a type of facial treatment that improves acne breakouts along with acne scarring, helps to fade brown spots and uneven pigmentation, decreases fine lines and wrinkles, and enhances skin tone. It is a safe and controlled method of skin resurfacing and effective for a wide range of skin types.

How is it performed?

The procedure is performed by an esthetician who utilizes mechanical exfoliation to remove dead skin and stimulate cell renewal. The superficial layers of skin are treated with a hand-held tool that uses exfoliating crystals, simultaneously stimulating the skin with a suction. After your treatment, the esthetician may choose to apply a topical cream, which will penetrate more effectively on the newly resurfaced skin.

Will it hurt?

Microdermabrasion is not painful. After the treatment, it is normal to have some redness especially around areas that were treated multiple times. The redness is similar to an after-workout flush, which should disappear within the hour.

Avoid microdermabrasion if:

  • The skin is red or irritated, due to skin conditions such as inflammatory acne or rosacea.
  • You have recently had a chemical peel.
  • You use retinoid medications because it can cause skin irritation or darkening of the skin. Discontinue use 3-5 days prior to treatment.

After treatment care:

It is important to wear sunscreen with SPF of 30 or more daily. Stay out of the sun for 3-5 days. Mild crusting can occur and is normal.


Dermaplaning

What is it?

Dermaplaning is a facial exfoliation that improves the appearance of skin by removing the outer layers of dead skin cells and removing fine facial hairs (“peach fuzz”). It is effective for patients with dry or rough skin, uneven texture, superficial brown spots, mild acne scarring, fine lines, and facial hair. Dermaplaning is a safe and controlled non-traumatic method of skin resurfacing that leaves the skin smoother and more refined. Your make up will go on better and your skin will be very smooth.

How is it performed?

The procedure is performed by an esthetician who manually exfoliates to remove dead skin and fine hairs, stimulating cell renewal. It is a quick and simple resurfacing procedure used to remove the thin, top, outer layer of skin (dead epidermal cells). It is performed using a special surgical blade to gently scrape away the top layer of skin. This method will also remove unwanted fine, light-colored facial hairs. After the treatment, the esthetician may choose to apply a topical product, which will penetrate more effectively on the newly resurfaced skin. This is an excellent option for patients who have sensitive skin and cannot tolerate chemical peels or are not allowed to use chemical products on their skin for medical reasons such as pregnancy.

What are the risks?

There are no side effects. Dermaplaning is not painful. After the treatment, it is normal to have some redness especially around areas that were treated multiple times.

Avoid Dermaplaning if you have:

  • Inflamed acne
  • Numerous raised lesions on the skin
  • An allergy to nickel

After treatment care:

It is important to wear sunscreen with SPF of 30 or more daily. Stay out of the sun for 3-5 days.
