Microdermabrasion is an excellent strategy for softening the appearance of your fine lines, uneven skin tone, and skin texture. This is a non-invasive treatment that can maintain and significantly improve your skin. With microdermabrasion, you can treat mild and moderate skin imperfections, as well as some forms of acne. Microdermabrasion stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen, improving circulation and leading to a healthy glow. Turn back the clock on your dull skin with one of these effective treatments.
This exfoliating treatment uses either very fine crystals or a mildly abrasive metal tip to gently remove the outermost layer of skin. As a physical exfoliator, microdermabrasion can be used on all skin colors and types. Because it involves no chemicals, it is an excellent treatment option for those who are pregnant, breast-feeding, or whose skin does not tolerate certain types of acid or chemical peels.
If you’re looking for a specialized type of microdermabrasion, consider the HydraFacial, which also uses specially designed exfoliating, hydrating, and infusing tips combined with topical serums to exfoliate your skin. This treatment is customized to your skin type by a medical esthetician to provide the best in nourishment and care for your skin needs. If you’re unsure which treatment option is best for you and your skin, schedule a consultation at our Edina or Plymouth locations. We can walk you through your options and provide a personalized recommendation.
What to Expect from Microdermabrasion Treatment
A microdermabrasion treatment typically takes about 30-45 minutes to complete. You can expect very little, if any, discomfort with some patients reporting only a mild scratching sensation. Upon completion, your skin may feel taut, and you may experience some redness. That said, these mild side effects usually go away within a few hours. Keep in mind that your skin will be more sensitive to the sun than usual, so it’s best to be more generous with your sun protection. Stay out of direct sunlight for several days following the treatment. For the best results, we recommend microdermabrasion treatments at 4 to 6-week intervals.
