What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that exfoliates the skin to improve skin tone and texture. The microdermabrasion treatment uses small, abrasive crystals to gently exfoliate dry or damaged skin cells. After these skin cells are removed, you will be left with radiant, smooth, and healthy skin. The microdermabrasion treatment can be used to address many cosmetic concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage and age spots
- Acne scarring
- And more
Microdermabrasion is a gentle alternative to other facial rejuvenation procedures. It is safe for all skin types, providing a skin care experience that is suitable for all patients.
How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost?
At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, our microdermabrasion treatments are priced at $100 per treatment. We also offer a series of six treatments for just $500.
What is the Microdermabrasion Treatment Like?
The microdermabrasion treatment is quite tolerable, so no anesthetic is needed. During treatment, a handheld device will be used to blast tiny abrasive crystals onto the skin. As these crystals exfoliate the skin, the device collects skin cells and the crystals using a vacuum system. During the 60-minute treatment session, we will treat the full surface of the face.
What is Recovery Like Following Microdermabrasion?
After the microdermabrasion treatment, your skin may feel dry and will have a reddened appearance. However, these effects typically fade within a few hours. We may recommend moisturizing the skin after treatment to reduce these effects. You should be able to return to work and other activities immediately following your microdermabrasion treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Microdermabrasion?
The results from your microdermabrasion will be visible immediately after treatment. These results will become more visible as any side effects fade, and can be further improved with additional treatment sessions. During your initial consultation, we can help you determine the number of treatments necessary to achieve your desired results.
