Have you ever considered a facelift? Are you bothered by the appearance of acne scars, enlarged pores or sun spots? Microdermabrasion can help!
Microdermabrasion, often referred to as an “instant facelift”, has become common practice. Unlike a facelift, though, microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure that does not require anesthetic. Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to resurface your skin and promote the production of new skin cells and collagen, making your skin appear smoother, brighter, tighter, and younger.
What to Expect
The microdermabrasion procedure can:
- Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve hyperpigmentation
- Lessen brown spots
- Even skin tone and texture
- Decrease the appearance of light scars, such as those caused by acne
- Reduce enlarged pores
- Increase skin quality and elasticity
Treatment sessions are generally 30 – 45 minutes in length.
While you may notice results after your very first treatment, we recommend a minimum of five treatments for long-lasting results. These treatments are usually scheduled every two to four weeks. After the initial five sessions you may consider monthly maintenance visits to keep your skin looking youthful.
During the procedure you may experience a slight discomfort, but the machine setting can be adjusted by your esthetician. Immediately following a microdermabrasion session you may notice redness or peeling in the area treated. Your skin may feel like you’ve just spent the day outside in the sun and wind.
Microdermabrasions and chemical peels may be used together for a more dramatic overall effect.
Microdermabrasion is safe, but may not be right for all skin types. We recommend meeting with a board certified clinician to determine if microdermabrasion is right for you. Call 503.530.8317 for a free consultation.
The cost of microdermabrasion treatments start as low as $79 per session, or you can purchase a package of five sessions for as low as $295. The actual cost may vary depending on the the size of the area to be treated. For more information schedule a free consultation with our board certified skin care professionals – 503.530.8317.
