What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a simple, clear cut procedure that is the least invasive dermatological procedure available. It can revitalize dull skin, reduce large pores, diminish mild pigment irregularities, stretch marks, age spots and can erase fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will glow and you will look younger and healthier!
Who Should Consider Microdermabrasion?
Anyone who has damaged facial skin as a result of prolonged sun exposure, or who has other skin blemishes such as fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots or raised scarring could see positive results from microdermabrasion treatment. If you have a sunken scar the treatment may not be as effective so it would be best to make an appointment with Dr. Ahmed and ask for his professional advice. Microdermabrasion treatment is an excellent solution for acne sufferers, but it usually takes several visits for the best results.
What is the Procedure for Microdermabrasion?
In a microdermabrasion procedure, Dr. Ahmed uses a handheld device that sprays fine crystals onto the surface of your skin, providing gentle abrasion, or "polishing," to remove the outer layer of old skin cells. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes to an hour and several visits are recommended for optimum results.
What are the Risks and Benefits?
Because microdermabrasion uses non-allergenic crystals to treat the skin, it is an excellent treatment for skin that is sensitive to chemicals. Microdermabrasion does not present any serious risks when it is performed by a qualified provider. Some people may experience slight skin irritation after microdermabrasion, but since everyone’s skin and health history are different, the risks and benefits of microdermabrasion should be considered on a case-by-case basis.
