What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion, also referred to as collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive skincare treatment that can be combined with biologics such as PRP to help rejuvenate the skin and smooth out wrinkles, address sun damage, reduce the appearance of acne scars, scarring on the body due to injury or surgery such as C Sections, or even stretch marks.
How does Microdermabrasion work?
A specialized device with fine needles is used to create tiny micro-injuries in the skin. This process triggers the production of collagen and elastin which in turn will stimulate firmness, improved skin texture as well as resurface the skin. The increased collagen production is essential to maintain smooth, firm youthful skin.
What Are The Benefits of Microdermabrasion?
This minimally invasive treatment can:
Improve skin tone and pigmentation
Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Refine and shrink pore size
Produce smoother, healthy skin
Help tighten skin for a more youthful look
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments may vary, typically you will need a package of three to four treatments, six to eight weeks apart to ensure optimal results. A skincare consultation will be conducted to discuss your specific needs and goals for your skin.
How Long Does It Last?
The treatment benefits can last as long as several weeks to even months based upon the skin tone and severity of the condition being treated. That why a skincare analysis is critical.
How Do I Maintain Microdermabrasion Benefits:
A designated skincare regimen, individualized for your skin’s specific needs as well as other treatments to continue the cell turnover process will help maintain your microdermabrasion benefits. Some of the modalities your provider may choose to enhance your microdermabrasion procedure includes the following:
In conjunction with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Using microdermabrasion with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a powerful combination for Facial Rejuvenation. This combination helps accelerate the healing, growth factors and collagen to further reduce any wrinkling or sagging skin, found in the forehead, eye area, chin, cheek, neck, or chest areas and continue the cell turnover process.
In conjunction with Dermal Facial Fillers: Using microdermabrasion with Injectable dermal fillers offers a way to increase facial volume and counteract depleted skin. This result is enhanced when fillers are combined with microdermabrasion. By combining two treatments that increase collagen production, one is able to achieve longer-lasting, natural-appearing results.
Fillers also help to further replenish lost collagen by stimulating the body to produce collagen naturally. When injected, collagen-promoting fillers can yield long-lasting results.
