Microdermabrasion removes outer layers of skin and encourages collagen production. On its own, the process helps reduce fine lines and wrinkes, but in combination with a chemical peel, it allows any peel to penetrate further and make skin even brighter.
If microdermabrasion is right for you, the doctor will use a mechanical wand to cleanse the skin with aluminum oxide crystals. At the same time, the dead skin cells are pulled away with a suction device. The treatment itself feels quite comfortable.
Good candidates Microdermabrasion with a chemical peel is best suited for those who have sun damaged skin, pigment problems or thick skin. It is not ideal for those with active acne or thin skin. During your initial consultation, ask the aesthetician if microdermabrasion is right for you.
Recovery and Maintenance Expect to leave your appointment looking and feeling great! For maximum results, your doctor may recommend a series of four to six microdermabrasions together with chemical peels. The treatments will leave your skin looking smooth and bright.
