Medical Microdermabrasion Flemington
What is Microdermabrasion?
It is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that offers safe and controlled skin abrasion. It uses friction, propelled at a high speed across the skin’s surface to abrade the skin’s tissue. The technique is very quick and relatively painless. Results are seen immediately. There is no downtime, side effects, risk of contamination or skin infection. At Advance Medical Spa & Laser Center our highly skilled aesthetician uses diamond tip to remove dead and dull skin layer for rejuvenation leaving you with a healthy and glowing skin.
Is it safe?
Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types and colors. The procedure gently removes a very thin layer (10-20 microns) off the top of your epidermis. The treatment requires no anesthesia, causes no discomfort, and has no recovery time.
How soon will I see results?
After your first treatment, your skin will have a fresh pink glow. Improvement continues throughout your treatment program. The number of treatments recommended for maximum results ranges from four to six.
How long does the procedure last?
Microdermabrasion takes less than an hour to treat the whole face. The treatment is ideal for people who have sensitive skin that reacts to chemicals or those with oily, acne-prone skin that has not improved by acne remedies. It is an excellent option for those who cannot afford to take time off for healing from laser resurfacing or deep dermabrasion.
How does it work?
The stimulated blood flow to the surface of the skin increases the oxygenation, causing an enhancement of cell renewal and collagen re-growth. The massaging action of the microdermabrasion treatment creates a flushing and cleansing effect below the skin surface and pores, resulting in a vibrant, healthy appearance and complexion. Therapeutic infusion of nutrients and moisture into the skin or a face mask can be added during the treatment.
How am I assessed for Microdermabrasion?
You can contact us by phone or for a complimentary consultation . During your consultation an overall skin assessment will be done to determine the number of treatments that will be necessary to reach your individual goal. Typically, treatments are preformed weekly or bi-weekly and produce best results when taken in a series of 4 or 6.
Depending on your skin condition, a more aggressive plan of alternating Glycolic Peels, or IPL photo facial with Microdermabrasion treatments may be recommended. To ensure progress patients are recommended to follow a skin care regime in order to maintain optimum results.
What should I expect after each treatment?
Skin should appear light pink with a soft texture. More aggressive treatments may leave a redness appearance for approximately 24 hours. You may also experience a light peeling. It is recommended that you avoid cosmetic makeup for 1 day.
You should steer clear of sun for 24 hours after treatment and use an SPF 30 sun block.
