Which Skin Issues Can Microdermabrasion Correct?

The Treatment Process and What to Expect
Our Aesthetician at Jeffords Medical Spa & Laser Center will meet with you to determine the number of microdermabrasion facial treatments recommended for your desired results. Multiple sessions and maintenance treatments are typically required (usually around four to six treatments). Patients with good skin tone will show best results.
A treatment session takes from 30 minutes to an hour. First, the skin is cleansed. Next, the microdermabrasion handpiece emits crystals onto the surface of the skin, resulting in a gentle abrasion, or “polishing,” process. This safely and effectively removes dead and damaged skin cells.
Microdermabrasion leaves your skin smooth with slight temporary redness. Once the procedure is complete, you will be able to immediately return to your everyday activities without any need for downtime or recovery. Make sure to avoid saunas, hot showers, and prolonged exposure to sunlight for a time. Do not scratch or pick at the treated area.
An individualized skin care program may be recommended to help achieve the best possible results. This must include regular moisturizing, application of anti-inflammatory cream, and proper application of sunscreen, since the skin will be more vulnerable to damage for a time. Do not attempt any other forms of skin exfoliation.
Maintenance of results requires periodic repeat treatments after the initial regimen is completed.
How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost?
The price of a microdermabrasion session is impacted by where the patient goes to get their treatment and which types of issues are being treated. Patients can discuss financing through CareCredit or Prosper Healthcare Lending during a consultation at our office.
