Your skin is the largest organ in your body and, as such, is the first to be exposed to a variety of physical and environmental aggressors. It’s no wonder, then, that the first signs of aging appear on the skin on your face. With all that exposure and assault, your skin deserves to be pampered so it restores the glow it once had in your youth.
Andres Plastic Surgery is proud to offer microdermabrasion in Scottsdale, as a method of skin revitalization and rejuvenation.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure designed to smooth skin’s tone and texture, revealing more youthful, glowing skin in the process. During a Phoenix microdermabrasion session, your technician will administer the treatment using a hand-held device which sprays an ultrafine stream of exfoliating particles across the surface of the skin. The procedure removes the outermost layers of the dermis, suctioning them away and revealing fresh, glowing skin in the process.
What are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is an excellent method of resurfacing the facial skin, reducing the visible signs of aging, and can improve the appearance of a range of skin conditions such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Enlarged or clogged pores
- Hyperpigmentation and sun spots
- Skin which has a dull appearance
- Sun damage
- Uneven texture
- Uneven skin tone
Am I a candidate for microdermabrasion?
Typically, men or women who would like to reduce skin imperfections such as wrinkles, rosacea, and pigmentation concerns are candidates for microdermabrasion. Ideal candidates should meet the following requirements:
- Are generally in good health
- Have no current skin infections or outbreaks such as acne or herpes
- Are not pregnant
- Do not have deep scars
- Have no undiagnosed lesions or warts on the face
What Can I Expect During Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is performed in the comfort of our Scottsdale facility, allowing you to rest comfortably during your treatment. Using the hand-held device, your technician will gently move it over the surface of your skin, addressing areas where there are blemishes, uneven skin tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and other skin concerns. Once the outermost layer of skin has been gently blasted away, a moisturizer and sunscreen will be applied. You will immediately be able to see the treatment’s glow-inducing results.
What Can I Expect Following Microdermabrasion in Phoenix?
Since microdermabrasion is non-invasive, you will be able to immediately resume your normal activities. You should use gentle skincare products in the days following your treatment and avoid the use of skincare products with acids for at least three days to avoid irritating your skin. It is imperative that you use sunscreen following your treatment sessions, as your skin will be particularly vulnerable to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. A series of treatments may be required in order to achieve maximum glow with microdermabrasion in Phoenix.
