Microdermabrasion which Dr. Roberts also refer to as particle skin resurfacing is designed for patients looking to address an uneven complexion, acne, or a pigmentation disorder. Microdermabrasion utilizes a device that has very fine particle grains that run against the surface of your skin. It has a polishing effect that can really smooth your skin and even out your skin tone and complexion. Similar to a chemical peel, it treats the upper layer of the skin and can help with complexion issues, acne and acne scars, age spots, pigmentation disorders, and fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
Microdermabrasion is a painless treatment that is inexpensive yet effective for treating minor skin issues and concerns. Crystals are used to slough away the upper layer of skin to rejuvenate and bring a “fresh face forward.” Microdermabrasions do not go as deep down into the skin as dermabrasions, which use a rotating brush to treat the upper layer of skin. The special hand-held device is attached to a vacuuming machine, which picks up the used crystals and any dead skin left behind from the treatment. This is done with just one pass of the device, and is completely comfortable for patients. Treatment is then followed with a moisturizer to help soothe the skin. Some mild redness may occur for a few hours after the session, but otherwise there are no notable after effects involved with microdermabrasion.
After microdermabrasion treatments, your skin will feel supple and soft. Acne therapies and other treatments for fine lines and wrinkles may be more effective. You may see your skin tone become more even with decreased dark spots. Microdermabrasion treatments should be done at one to two week intervals for optimal results.
