Microdermabrasion is a safe, effective skin treatment that boosts the health and appearance of your skin. During your treatment, your Limmer Dermatology provider uses a handheld wand to exfoliate and eliminate the dead layers of cells on the surface of your skin, revealing the healthy, new skin underneath.
While the exfoliation continues, your provider uses a suction device to collect dead skin cells and draw out impurities and debris in your pores.
Microdermabrasion is an effective treatment option for boosting your skin's overall health and vitality. Your Limmer Dermatology provider may recommend microdermabrasion to:
The microdermabrasion process can also stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen, a protein needed for healthy, young-looking skin. Treatments improve your overall blood and lymphatic circulation in the deeper layers of the skin, promoting the healing of your skin from the inside out.
Additionally, microdermabrasion increases your skin’s ability to absorb moisturizers and other skin care products by as much as 50%.
Your Limmer Dermatology provider creates a custom microdermabrasion treatment plan based on your skin health and the condition being treated. They can adjust the strength of the abrasion to achieve optimal results.
Immediately after your microdermabrasion treatment, it’s normal to experience some mild side effects like:
These issues should resolve on their own in the hours after your treatment.
Your Limmer Dermatology provider can recommend a high-quality product to keep your skin moisturized and prevent flaking. You should also use a protective sunscreen when outdoors, especially in the initial weeks after treatment when your skin may be more sensitive.
As your skin heals, you may notice an improvement in its texture, tone, and firmness. Your skin may look younger and more vibrant.
