Microdermabrasion in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Many patients find that simple, regular microdermabrasion treatments help maintain youthful and radiant skin by exfoliating away toxins and dead skin cells. The Weston Center for Plastic Surgery provides microdermabrasion, as well as an array of complementary cosmetic procedures for residents of Fort Lauderdale and Broward County.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a skin rejuvenation treatment designed to achieve a younger, smoother appearance by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and damaged skin. During the treatment session, a special machine uses a stainless steel tip to gently remove the damaged layer of skin to reveal healthier, younger looking and smoother skin. Microdermabrasion can reduce the appearance of fine lines, uneven pigmentation, acne scars and other skin blemishes.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a safe, non-invasive procedure that imparts luminosity and smoothness to skin, removing slight imperfections such as blemishes, scars, age spots and fine lines. It instantaneously provides an improved, more youthful appearance. When applied to the body, microdermabrasion may be used to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, age spots, wrinkles, scars, and discoloration. This safe and simple outpatient procedure may be done in under an hour, requires no recovery and produces stunning, dramatic results instantly.
Is Microdermabrasion Right For Me?
This treatment is chosen by men and women who are looking for a way to improve the texture and appearance of their facial skin without a significant recovery process. This is often a good option for patients with multiple skin concerns, such as uneven pigmentation, scars, fine lines and sun damage. However, it cannot treat certain conditions such as severe scarring or birthmarks, as these extend further than the outermost layer of skin. Most adults in good overall health can undergo microdermabrasion treatments, although this technique is not appropriate for those who are currently taking Accutane and Retin-A acne medication.
What Areas Are Treated with Microdermabrasion?
Virtually any area of the body may be treated with microdermabrasion to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and discoloration. Many patients use it regularly on their face, but it may also be used effectively on the skin covering the entire body. Microdermabrasion treatments on the body provide the same benefits as facial microdermabrasion treatments, a luminous, healthy glow, and flawless, smooth, radiant skin.
How Involved Is The Microdermabrasion Procedure?
The microdermabrasion technique is considered to be minimally invasive; it does not involve incisions or anesthesia. It exfoliates the skin with a stainless steel tip across the surface of the skin and removes dead skin cells. In doing so, they reveal a healthier, smoother skin layer. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes.
How Long Is The Recovery After Microdermabrasion?
After microdermabrasion, patients can leave our office and return to work or other daily activities. Patients find that their skin feels ultra-clean and much smoother immediately after treatment. Your skin may feel a bit sensitive and look pink, like a mild sunburn, for a couple of days. The skin may also peel similar to a sunburn. Avoid sun exposure and makeup for several weeks to allow your skin to fully heal.
How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost?
Some patients find that they have achieved their aesthetic goals after just one microdermabrasion session, though many undergo a series of three to six treatments for optimum results. Financing is available.
