Microdermabrasion: A Great First Step Toward Clearer and Smoother Skin

Microdermabrasion can help improve the overall texture and tone of the facial skin. Blemishes, age spots, and fine wrinkles can all be treated with microdermabrasion. Dull, brittle skin can be made more radiant and smooth. This type of treatment is gentle, and it’s simple to perform. There’s no downtime after the treatment, and it’s suitable for all skin types and skin tones.

We’ll have you undergo a consultation before deciding to have microdermabrasion performed. This way, there won’t be any surprises. We can customize a treatment schedule for each individual, and we can schedule the treatments around the client’s work and other activities. Microdermabrasion is oftentimes the first step — and, in some cases, the only step needed — to achieve clearer, more youthful-appearing skin.

Microdermabrasion vs. Dermabrasion

The usual dermabrasion procedure involves the use of a rotary tip tool that scours the skin surface. This is a rather harsh treatment, and it’s not suitable for many individuals. On the other hand, microdermabrasion is performed by gently lifting away dead or damaged epidermal cells.

The body responds to this removal of tissue by accelerating the production of replacement cells. Collagen production also increases, and this continues for quite some time after the treatment schedule is completed. The procedure itself is simple. It usually takes only minutes to treat the entire surface of the face. A suction instrument gathers the removed skin cells.

We normally schedule a series of treatments, which are spaced apart by a week or so. Before each of the subsequent treatments, we can examine the skin surface to see which areas need additional touch-ups. After the treatment schedule is complete, we can give the client information regarding follow-up maintenance via cleansing and exfoliating as an at-home regimen.

Long-Lasting Positive Results

For sometime after the treatment, the skin will continue to become smoother in appearance. The increase in collagen results in skin that is more taut and supple. Fine wrinkles are less noticeable, and superficial hyperpigmentation such as blemishes, acne scars, and dull regions caused by sun exposure are far less visible.

Smoother, Clearer Skin

This can be achieved without the need for surgery or other invasive techniques. Contact us today at Doctors MedSpa for a microdermabrasion consultation in Little Rock!
