Microdermabrasion is a quick and convenient procedure and has become very popular with patients showing the early signs of aging, sun exposure and other facial imperfections.
Microdermabrasion is non-invasive and non-wounding to the skin's surface. The microdermabrasion procedure entails virtually no discomfort, down time or recovery. Patients typically experience very little redness for about an hour after the procedure.
In addition to the face, microdermabrasion can be successfully used on the neck, arms and hands. It is also beneficial for patients with darker skin types. This rejuvenation method is generally indicated for:
- Dull, oily or leathery skin texture
- Contracting enlarged pores
- Exfoliating and suctioning clogged pores in acne cases
- Polishing and reducing fine lines
- Mild acne scarring
- Mild pigment irregularities
- Enhancing penetration of therapeutic agents
Microdermabrasion is effective in reducing fine lines, "crow's feet," age spots and acne scars. It stimulates the production of skin cells and collagen. Microdermabrasion has proven to be a very popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure.
The Microdermabrasion Technique
Pristine is the most advanced medical microdermabrasion treatment available. Using laser cut diamond tip applicators, this treatment exfoliates the skin’s surface while gentle suction stimulates production of healthy cells, collagen and elastin. This safe, non-invasive procedure leaves the skin smooth and refreshed with no down time.
This treatment can be customized to the individual patients needs. Even thin or ultra sensitive skin can be treated with ease. Treatment can be done alone or in conjunction with laser of peels to maximize results.
