Microdermabrasion Treatment for Acne Scars & the Face in South Florida

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a mini procedure that involves the skin being “sandblasted” by aluminum oxide crystals to remove the top layer of the skin or dead skin cells. This promotes the production of new cells in the basal (deepest) layer of the dermis.

How is this treatment performed?

A cleansing toner is applied to the skin to remove excess oils for better application and penetration. A self contained wand is then manually passed over the skin in areas of damage or all over the face, which is usually the case. The machine delivers fine, aluminum oxide crystals to the face that “sandblast” away dead skin and impurities. The procedure lasts about 20 to 30 minutes, depending upon the ‘depth’ or ‘strength’ of the peel. Afterwards a cotton ball saturated with a soothing toner is passed over the face then a re-hydrating cream and sunblock are applied.

What should I expect after microdermabrasion?

You can expect to feel as if you have a mild sun burn or windburn. Your skin will feel dry and may peel. This is natural and is the purpose of the procedure. You should regularly apply a high quality moisturizer as well as a high protection sunblock. Do not expose your face to sunlight for long periods of time, including tanning beds. You should not use any exfoliating scrubs or lotions beforehand or afterwards for at least 3 days. Your skin will be smoother and the damage will be lessened.

Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime following microdermabrasion treatment. You can return to work and normal activities immediately. In some cases, Hollywood Dermatology patients schedule the treatment on their lunch break.
