Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive skin resurfacing treatment that exfoliates away the top layer of dead skin cells while also stimulating collagen growth for healthier-looking skin. This treatment also allows creams and lotions to be more easily absorbed for more effective results.
As we age, the collagen production in our skin slows down, leading to lines and wrinkles. This can also lead to weaker skin, making it more susceptible to environmental damage. Microdermabrasion can improve your overall skin look and strength without invasive techniques.
This type of skin resurfacing treatment is used to treat the following skin conditions:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Black heads
- Uneven skin tone
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
- Fine lines/wrinkles
- Acne and acne scarring
Microdermabrasion at BioSpa® uses a pain-free bristle tip system to exfoliate the topmost layer and suction up dead skin cells. Circulation under the skin is also increased for a boost in collagen production. A paraben-free infusion solution also targets specific skincare needs and includes ingredients such as growth factors, peptides, vitamin C, TCA, and hyaluronic acid for optimal skin rejuvenation. Treatment is also highly customizable to meet individual patient needs.
At BioSpa® we use DermaSweep for microdermabrasion, which is a painless, safe treatment which takes approximately 30 minutes to perform. The time will vary depending on the number of areas and severity of the skin issue.
Using a variable-level vacuum and an assortment of treatment tips, the DermaSweep wand gently lifts the skin against the appropriate treatment tip, removing the topmost layer of skin. Your skin is left smoother while the vacuum action of the wand stimulates blood flow and cleans pores.
Increasing blood flow to the skin’s surface encourages collagen production resulting in firming, younger-looking skin. Collagen is a protein in the skin that makes the skin appear tight and smooth. Aging and environmental damage cause collagen production to decrease, resulting in poor skin quality.
- Keep skin clean and moisturized.
- Use a gentle cleanser.
- Avoid scratching or picking treated areas.
- Avoid tanning for at least one week.
- Avoid warm temperatures and sweating for a few days.
At the conclusion of your treatment, your skin will be warm and have a pink tone. This should last no more than about one hour. Your aesthetician will provide you with all of your post-treatment instructions, so you can properly take care of your newly rejuvenated skin.
Typically results will be seen after one treatment. Skin will be smooth and appear healthier and more radiant. Optimal results will be seen with a series of 3 to 6 treatments spaced approximately 2 weeks apart. Your aesthetician will provide her recommended treatment plan when you first meet with her.
I wanted to know more about fillers, lasers and how to start the process to obtain clearer and smoother skin. I had a consultation at the BioSpa® and they answered all my questions and provided alternatives to the results I would like to have. The staff is very professional and they really know what they are doing.
