The office of Dr. Fredric Newman offers microdermabrasion at his Darien, CT, practice to help improve the health, texture, and appearance of a patient’s skin. This unique skin rejuvenation treatment gently exfoliates the patient’s skin in order to treat fine lines and wrinkles, superficial pigmentation, blotchy-dull skin, sun-damaged skin, and stretch marks. Microdermabrasion can be performed on its own or in conjunction with other surgical or non-surgical treatments.
How Microdermabrasion Works
Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation technique used for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, superficial pigmentation, blotchy or dull skin, sun-damaged skin, and stretch marks. Microdermabrasion works by gently exfoliating the skin with aluminum oxide crystals to remove the upper layers of your skin and stimulate cell turnover. Healthier skin cells are brought to the surface, resulting in improved texture, tone, and elasticity.
Microdermabrasion also increases the effectiveness of many products used at home and can be performed in conjunction with several cosmetic surgery procedures.
During the microdermabrasion procedure, Dr. Fredric Newman’s aesthetician gently moves the microdermabrasion device back and forth over the skin. The machine emits abrasive crystals through the hand-piece, which is passed over the face until all areas in need of treatment have been covered. As this process is carried out, a vacuum removes the used crystals and the dead skin that is being eliminated.
Though some people are nervous about the procedure, the microdermabrasion tool is designed in a way that prevents it from creating heat or discomfort in the patient. The treatment typically lasts between 30 and 60 minutes.
Recovery Following Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is completely non-invasive, meaning that there is virtually no downtime following the completion of the treatment. Though there may be some redness following microdermabrasion, this pigmentation should fade relatively quickly and should reveal refreshed, rejuvenated skin.
Microdermabrasion skin resurfacing will leave your skin with increased radiance, clarity, and glow. Microdermabrasion also increases the effectiveness of many products used at home and can be performed in conjunction with several cosmetic surgery procedures. In most cases, microdermabrasion can be repeated periodically to maintain the desired results.
