Is your complexion dull and lifeless? Has your skin texture worsened over time? If so, you may benefit from microdermabrasion, an advanced exfoliation procedure that we perform in our Little Rock cosmetic surgery office.
Our specialized Diamond Microdermabrasion uses a fine, sterile diamond tip to precisely remove dull, damaged skin cells and vacuum out deep-seated debris. Following treatment, you’ll notice a smoother, refreshed feel and look to your skin’s surface. Not only that, but microdermabrasion increases absorption of skin care products, helping them work better. Long-term benefits include a boost in collagen production and regeneration of new, healthier skin cells.
What Can Microdermabrasion Help Me Treat?
Microdermabrasion is popular among patients who exhibit the following conditions:
- Mild sun damage
- Fine wrinkles
- Poor skin texture
How Microdermabrasion Works
The procedure stimulates skin cell turnover by gently scraping away the outermost layer of skin using a special diamond tip. Your body’s natural healing process works to bring fresh, more attractive skin to the surface. Other methods of skin rejuvenation work in a similar fashion, but few of them are as easy and as comfortable as microdermabrasion.
Sometimes a series of treatments is recommended to reduce fine wrinkles and uneven pigmentation. After treatment, you may experience some redness and very mild discomfort, which should resolve after a brief time.
Microdermabrasion is a minor procedure, so patients should be realistic and expect modest improvements. With that in mind, remember that many times a modest improvement in skin tone can significantly enhance your overall appearance.
Due to loose FDA regulation, almost anyone can administer microdermabrasion treatments. To achieve the best possible results and minimize the risk of complications, we strongly recommend that you choose a qualified medical practitioner to perform microdermabrasion.
