Microdermabrasion in Miami, FL
Age spots and other lines and wrinkles become more prominent as we get older. At Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute, Jill Waibel, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist, uses microdermabrasion on people living in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Kendall, FL, as well as other parts of the country, to restore a smoother complexion and natural looking, younger appearance.
What is Microdermabrasion?
The skin constantly produces new skin cells, which slowly come to the surface as the outer layers slough off naturally. Microdermabrasion speeds up the process of getting rid of the dead cells by gently exfoliating the skin using tiny crystals blasted across the targeted areas. As this takes place, damaged skin is suctioned with a vacuum device. The treatment promotes blood flow to the area and boosts collagen production to restore a smooth, healthy complexion.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a gentle skin care treatment that improves skin tone and provides the following benefits:
- No discomfort
- No downtime following treatments
- Gentle enough for most skin types
- Safe for regular treatments
- Promotes the effectiveness of skin care products
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion helps in getting rid of dead cells to restore an even, smoother complexion. The treatment uses a high-powered system to gently remove the top layer of skin. It involves moving a hand-held device or wand over the areas to exfoliate the skin imperfections. Upon completion, the dermatologist applies a serum over the skin to calm any discomfort, which is typically minimal. Microdermabrasion usually takes about 30 minutes to complete and is often performed in conjunction with other skin treatments.
What Should I Expect from Microdermabrasion?
Immediately following microdermabrasion, patients may return to their normal activities. The results are somewhat noticeable following each treatment and improve over time as collagen production increases. Most people see results after one treatment but require two to three treatments to get the desired results. After that, monthly treatments maintain the healthy glow.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?
If you have an uneven skin tone, age or sun spots, or surface wrinkles and lines, you may be a good candidate for microdermabrasion. To determine if this or another treatment is the best option for your skin, we recommend you schedule a consultation with a dermatologist at Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute.
