dermabrasion & microdermabrasion

overview

If you’re unhappy with your skin’s appearance, dermabrasion and microdermabrasion can help. They both smooth facial skin for a more youthful look. Dermabrasion treats deeper layers and repairs more severe skin damage.

services & treatment

Microdermabrasion treats only the top layer of skin, making dull, blotchy skin look brighter. It’s quick (30 minutes to an hour) and relatively painless, though it may take several treatments to achieve the desired results. 

During the process, your provider will gently sand off the skin’s top layer with a special tool. The most common side effect is slight redness for a few hours. You can return to work and other daily activities right away.

Dermabrasion removes wrinkles, age lines and acne scars and gives skin a smoother, younger look. It can also remove precancerous growths called keratoses. 

During the process, your provider uses a special surgical scraping tool to remove the layers of skin that cover the collagen layer. Dermabrasion takes longer than microdermabrasion, requires local anesthetic and can take up to 10 days to heal.
