This quick and convenient procedure is perfect for patients who have mild to moderate sun damage, wrinkles, or simply want a fresh, glowing, younger appearance. Microdermabrasion removes old, dry, dead cells from your skin using a gentle stream of organic mineral crystals, then uses suction to remove the cells and crystals. Unlike home kits, the suction device also increases collagen production in the skin, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The process does not require anesthesia and usually only takes about 30-45 minutes to perform. Patients experience no down time aside from mild facial redness for about an hour after the procedure.
