Keywords: microdermabrasion, acne blemishes, age spots, dull skin

Microdermabrasion performed by highly qualified cosmetic skin care specialist used to treat many skin conditions:

Dull, congested and blemished skin
Sun damaged, aged skins
Acne blemishes and scars
Pigmentation/brown spots, age spots

Microdermabraion is not painful and does not require pre-treatment or any anesthesia.  A real benefit is that after your treatment, you are able to leave the clinic with a clean and fresh sparkling skin tone.

What conditions can be treated with Microdermabrasion?

Dull and yellow skin
Fine lines
Acne scars
Enlarged or oily pores
Superficial lines and wrinkles
Brown spots, age spots
Superficial hyperpigmentation
Blemished skin
Sun damaged skin
Comedones, blackheads, whiteheads
Scar tissue
Skin texure and vitality
Chickenpox scars
General exfoliation/rejuvenation
Hypertrophic scars

Microdermabrasion is ideal for:

People who cannot afford to take time off for healing as you would with chemical or laser treatments
Active people who do not want to interfere with social or outdoor activities such as golf, tennis, or sking
Sensitive skin that reacts to make-up or chemicals
Oily, acne-prone skin that is not improved with traditional acne treatment
Younger people with early skin changes that wish for more beautiful healthy looking skin

Within just a few treatments one can see improvement in their skinís appearance.

What results can you expect from Microdermabrasion?

Depending on the area treated, you will notice an improvement in your skinís appearance.  Stretch marks and acne scars will be less obvious.  Age spots and fine lines will be much improved.  Many patients report that their skin was softer, tighter, smoother, and younger-looking.

Microdermabrasion is not covered by medical insurance.  To obtain the maximum result, we recommend a series of six treatments at 7-14 days apart.  To keep that new beautiful appearance, we recommend maintenance microdermabrasion every 1-3 months along with daily cleanser, daily sunscreen, and skin moisturizing treatment and Renova therapy at night.
