Patients who are looking for a way to exfoliate their skin and improve its overall appearance and health will want to ask Dr. Betty Bellman of Miami Beach, FL about the benefits of undergoing treatments such as microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a specialized treatment procedure that can boost skin rejuvenation and enhance the texture and tone. At the same time, it can also lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and even address sun damage. It is commonly performed on the face, but can also be done on the neck and chest.
What can I expect from microdermabrasion?
Miami Beach patients who are interested in microdermabrasion often have a lot of questions for their dermatologist about this and other skin therapies available. The treatment is done right in the office, and the provider will adjust the device’s intensity to the patient’s skin type and skin conditions. A pen-like device is then run across the skin to buff away dead skin cells and remove the top layer with vacuuming suction. Afterwards, many patients will have serums administered onto the skin while the pores are open and accepting of topical medications.
Recovery recommendations following microdermabrasion
After the procedure, there is limited recovery. Some redness will occur for a few hours after treatment but will subside throughout the day. There is no peeling or flaking that is often associated with other therapies such as chemical peels. Patients return to their day without any interruption, but should be mindful of sun exposure as the skin is much more susceptible to sun damage after treatment. Patients who want to continue to improve their skin will want to schedule several microdermabrasion treatments spaced a week or two apart, and then plan as needed to maintain results over time.
