Microdermabrasion



Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure that offers safe and controlled removal of the outer, dead layers of the skin. The remaining skin is more smooth, fresh and rejuvenated. This procedure utilizes medical grade microcrystals that are propelled at a high speed against the surface of the skin. Debris and used crystals are simultaneously vacuumed into a sealed waste container and disposed off.



Microdermabrasion is used to remove sun-damaged skin and to remove or lessen scars and dark spots on the skin. The procedure is not very painful and requires no anaesthetic.

It is also called Skin Resurfacing. This is not the same as Skin Polishing / Microdermabrasion done in beauty-parlors. This procedure is performed mainly for multiple pitted pimple scars & wrinkles in an aging face.

It is suitable on all skin types both men and women, specially designed for - Acne, Dull Skin, Pigmentation, Congestion, Fine Lines and Wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and brown spots.


FAQs

Microdermabrasion is a technique that uses a wire brush or a diamond wheel with rough edges (called a burr or fraise) to remove the upper layers of the skin. The brush or burr rotates rapidly, taking off and leveling (abrading or planing) the top layers of the skin. This process injures or wounds the skin and causes it to bleed. As the wound heals, new skin grows to replace the damaged skin that was removed during dermabrasion.
Dermabrasion is used most often to improve the appearance of acne scars and fine lines around the mouth. It also may be used to treat an enlarged nose (rhinophyma) caused by rosacea, an inflammatory skin condition.
Some of the uses of microdermabrasion are listed below:
  • To improve skin tone, making it softer and more smooth with a healthy glow
  • To provide a more even skin color for patients with altered pigmentation
  • To diminish large, unsightly pores or acne scars
  • To reduce the appearance of stretch marks
  • To reduce the frequency and severity of acne breakouts
  • To reduce fine lines and wrinkles for a younger appearance
The areas to be treated are cleaned and marked. A local anesthetic (such as lidocaine) is usually used to numb the skin before treatment, and ice packs are applied to the skin for up to 30 minutes. A freezing (cryogenic) spray may sometimes be used to harden the skin for deeper abrasions if the anesthetic and ice packs do not make the skin firm enough. For deep abrasions, or if the entire face is going to be treated, you may need stronger anesthesia, pain killers, sedation, or general anesthesia. One small area at a time is treated. The freezing spray (if needed) is applied for a few seconds and then the rotating burr or brush is used to take off the top layers of skin. Gauze is used to stop any bleeding, and the area is covered with a clean dressing or ointment. Dermabrasion is almost always done in your doctor’s office or on an outpatient basis.
The microdermabrasion treatment is performed in our treatment room, requires no anesthesia, and allows you to return to your normal daily activities immediately following the treatment.
Results are noticeable after the first treatment. Your skin will appear light pink with a soft texture. More aggressive treatments may cause the pinkness to persist for the remainder of the day of treatment. However, it is safe to reapply your makeup and/or facial moisturizer following the procedure. You should wear a sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure of the treated area for the first 24 hours following a treatment, because the treated area is initially more sensitive to the effects of ultraviolet radiation. Otherwise, your normal daily activities may be resumed immediately.
Dr. patel will make a recommendation to you regarding the number of treatments that may be necessary to achieve the results you have in mind. Treatments are usually performed in a series of six, with the first three treatments being performed at weekly intervals followed by the remaining three treatments spaced two weeks apart. Following this initial series, you may choose to have maintenance treatments every four to six weeks.
