Microdermabrasion Treatment for Improved Skin Appearance
Microdermabrasion is a facial rejuvenation treatment that uses a special abrasive instrument to “sand” the skin, removing the outer layer of cells to reveal a smoother, healthier layer of skin. Spectrum Dermatology of Atlanta offers microdermabrasion treatments at our Alpharetta aesthetics clinic.
Microdermabrasion is considered a skin rejuvenation treatment. It gently exfoliates dead skin to allow new healthy cells to proliferate. This produces a smoother surface after removing the older skin and its scars, discolorations or other blemishes.
It is even effective in reducing the appearance of stretch marks. Other benefits include:
- Improve age spots and blackheads
- Reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores
- Treat acne and the scars left by acne
Microdermabrasion also jump-starts the production of collagen in treated skin for long-term skin health and improved texture.
Minimally Invasive Skin Rejuvenation
Your aesthetician at Spectrum Dermatology of Atlanta will cleanse your face and remove all makeup. Then, they will use a hand-held device to sand away the top layer of your facial skin. After this is completed, they will apply a moisturizer and sunscreen for protection. The entire procedure lasts about one hour.
Your face will be slightly tender and red, but this should subside in a few hours. Some results will be noticed immediately, while others appear over time. Your aesthetician may recommend a few microdermabrasion treatments to achieve your desired appearance.
