is Microdermabrasion safe?

Are you looking to restore a more youthful glow to your skin without going through invasive or lengthy treatments? If so, microdermabrasion may be the perfect solution for you. At Doctors MedSpa in Little Rock, AR, we offer this convenient, effective treatment for patients seeking to improve their skin’s overall appearance and reduce the effects of aging skin.

How Often Should You Get Microdermabrasion?

Start With an Initial Series of Treatments

Usually, patients start out by receiving six treatments spaced equally apart. The time between treatments is typically a month. However, the frequency can be more or less, depending on your individual requirements and skin characteristics. After this starter set of treatments, we recommend returning to our office for regular maintenance treatments.

Why Maintenance Treatments are Needed and How Often

Your skin will look and feel amazing after your starter series of treatments. You’ll want to maintain these results over time as your skin is exposed to environmental and aging stressors. Each person is different, and you’ll be able to feel and notice when it’s time for your skin to get another boost. On average, patients return for maintenance treatments every 2-3 months. We strive to work with each patient individually to create a schedule that’s perfect for your skin and works with your busy schedule.

How Much Time Will Each Treatment Take?

One great thing about microdermabrasion treatments is that they don’t take much time. Typically, each session lasts about 30 minutes. These treatments are a great option to fit in before or after work, or during lunch. Because this is a non-invasive skin treatment option, you will be able to leave our office immediately after your treatments.

Important Facts About Microdermabrasion

1. How Does it Improve Your Skin?

Microdermabrasion is especially appealing because it can treat several skin concerns at once, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Age spots and hyperpigmentation
  • Lines and wrinkles due to aging
  • Clogged pores
  • Acne scarring
  • Dull skin tone
  • Uneven skin texture

These are just some examples of common skin concerns addressed by this treatment. If your primary concerns are not listed here, please contact us to discuss the best options for you. We’ll be happy to schedule a consultation with you to examine your skin. This will give us an opportunity to talk to you in detail about this type of treatment, as well as many other treatments that we offer.

2. The Primary Benefits of This Treatment

This is a more gentle way to treat your skin concerns. It’s a great option if you have sensitive skin or if you’re not ready to experience harsher treatments such as peels, lasers, or injections. You may be generally happy with your skin, yet you want to take better care of it and restore its healthy radiance. If so, this non-invasive treatment is worth looking into.

3. The Treatment Works Great By Itself or May Be Combined With Other Treatments

Maybe this treatment sounds appealing to you, but you’re also interested in additional options. Because it’s so gentle, this treatment works well in combination with other facial treatments. It also provides amazing results on its own. We’ll be happy to recommend other treatments that pair well with this one.

For example, laser or injection treatments can be used in parallel to produce even greater skin improvements. Because of the way microdermabrasion prepares the skin by removing dead skin cells and opening pores, it can allow other treatments, such as injections, to penetrate the skin more effectively.

4. How Exactly Does it Work?

Using a device that has diamond or crystal tips and sometimes including suction, we will manually exfoliate the skin across your face. This allows for the outer layer of skin to be removed, revealing fresher, younger skin beneath. We will pass over the skin several times, and the treatment will produce a sensation of scrubbing or tingling.

A key benefit of this process is that it stimulates your skin to produce more collagen, which is a key skin protein that makes your skin appear more supple and youthful. Not only are we removing layers of dead skin cells, but we are also enabling your skin to more effectively increase and maintain its collagen production. The net result is that your skin will look more healthy, even-toned, and radiant. It will also be stronger and better able to withstand environmental stress and aging.

5. Is The Treatment Safe?

Along with many skin specialists and doctors around the world, we can assure you that this is one of the safest facial treatments available. This is a major reason that the treatment is so popular. It doesn’t involve any surgery, harsh chemicals, or injections, making it extremely safe for your skin. Your comfort and peace of mind are very important to us, and we will discuss all concerns you have regarding safety during your consultation and initial treatment.
