Microdermabrasion

A Treatment to Polish Away Worn-Out Skin for Philadelphia and New Jersey

Microdermabrasion for Philadelphia and New Jersey area women and men is one of the most effective, non-invasive, virtually painless anti-aging treatments available at South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center. Microdermabrasion removes the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells to reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. The device, which features a diamond-tip wand and small vacuum, also stimulates new cell growth, helps initiate collagen production, and creates smoother and firmer skin.

Who Should Consider Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a great option for all skin types. Patients with fine facial lines or wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, uneven pigmentation, clogged pores, skin texture problems, or minor scars are good candidates for microdermabrasion treatment at our New Jersey facility. Patients with rosacea or acne may also benefit from microdermabrasion treatments.

Ideal Candidates for Microdermabrasion

The ideal candidate interested in a microdermabrasion treatment at our cosmetic dermatology and laser center should be healthy and ready to address common skin imperfections. This includes acne, fine lines, minor scars, uneven pigmentation, and wrinkles. Our treatment clears clogged pores and helps to reduce acne. It also reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles by removing the top layer of old skin cells.

Common Side Effects

Risks associated with microdermabrasion tend to be minimal in both intensity and duration. Redness and swelling are common side effects that usually last a few hours before diminishing. Due to the gentle exfoliating procedure, your skin may become dry and flaky over the span of several days. The suction used by the device can cause several days of bruising, and it's important to use sunscreen, as your skin will become more sensitive to sun exposure.

Benefits

Painless Procedure

Microdermabrasion is a painless procedure thanks to the diamond tip that gently removes dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. This exposes the new growth underneath, and buffs away the appearance of dark spots and fine lines.

Quick and Easy

Microdermabrasion is a convenient choice if you have a busy schedule, but still want to look refreshed. Within 30 minutes, our New Jersey-based team can have your skin looking and feeling clean, fresh, and rejuvenated. In addition, downtime is not needed, so it's something you can easily schedule in your spare time.

Versatility

Microdermabrasion is able to treat multiple types of skin imperfections, including sun damage, acne scarring, and hyperpigmentation. The diamond tip wand can be adjusted depending on the amount of exfoliation needed to remove dead skin. Fading wrinkles and dark spots may require more than one microdermabrasion treatment, but this form of cosmetic treatment has proven to be effective.

Safe & Non-Invasive

Microdermabrasion only removes dead skin cells on the outermost layer of dry skin. Since this treatment is non-invasive, it does not require much recovery or healing time. It's a very minimal procedure that reveals healthy-looking skin, without the need for a deep treatment.

Common Questions About Microdermabrasion

How many microdermabrasion treatments do I need?

Since the human skin regenerates approximately every 30 days, this process needs to be repeated every two to four weeks. Microdermabrasion results are temporary, so maintaining a desired look requires continued treatment. You can expect to see significant results after six to 12 sessions.

What should I expect during and after the microdermabrasion procedure?

Generally, the skin is prepared for microdermabrasion by removing makeup and oils. The skin is stretched in order for the abrasion and vacuuming to be more effective, and the wand is passed over the skin smoothly several times (usually three passes per area). Once the treatment is completed, you will experience mild pinkness of your skin, which usually takes up to an hour to fade away. Also, there may be mild exfoliation, which is normal and can be remedied with some moisturizer. Use of sunscreen is advised since the skin will become more sensitive to sunlight.

Alternatives and Complementary Treatments to Microdermabrasion

Our South Jersey Skin Care & Laser Center offers a wide range of effective treatments to improve your skin appearance. The non-invasive chemical peel treatment is perfect for removing damaged skin layers, thus revealing brighter, and even toned skin.

You can also improve the texture of your skin with a micro-needling treatment, used to soften fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks. It accomplishes this by stimulating a natural healing response with fine needles, which results in the formation of new collagen. This treatment is suitable for all skin types and colors, and can treat both small and larger areas of the body.

The Ultherapy® non-surgical treatment uses ultrasound technology to help lift sagging skin on the face, neck, and chest by focusing on collagen production deep within the skin.

Removing peach fuzz is easy with the quick and safe dermaplaning technique. A scalpel is used to eliminate vellus hair along with the outermost layer of dead skin. The result is greater elasticity and overall shinier, smoother skin.
