What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion (sometimes referred to as Microderm) is a non-invasive, pain-free exfoliation treatment that polishes the skin, accelerates the cell renewal process, and improves overall skin texture. During your Microdermabrasion treatment, a sophisticated cosmetic surgical instrument is used to gently blast sodium bicarbonate crystals onto the skin’s surface. A suction device simultaneously picks up any excess crystals and dead skin cells and carefully removes the topmost layer of skin. This process refreshes dull skin, cleans out pores, and improves superficial lines on the face, neck, chest, and hands. As a result, your skin is softer, smoother, and more radiant with an amazing glow. We then generally follow up our Microdermabrasion treatment with a hydrating facial, allowing you to get back to your daily routine right after.
The Unique Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion treatments are especially helpful in improving light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks. It also offers additional skincare benefits our clients enjoy after one session or many. Microdermabrasion is also an ideal way to:
- Improve Age Spots and Blackheads
- Improve Hyperpigmentation (Patches of Darkened Skin)
- Exfoliate Skin for a Refreshed Appearance
- Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Reduce or Eliminate Enlarged Pores
- Treat Acne And Acne Scars
- And more
Renew Your Skin with Advanced Dermaplaning Treatments
Another exemplary skincare treatment that helps patients rejuvenate their skin is dermaplaning. This treatment exfoliates your skin by utilizing a 10-gauge scalpel to gently scrape the top layer of dead skin cells and “peach fuzz” from your face. Not only does removing this unsightly peach fuzz mean it will not show up in certain lighting or cause caking with your makeup, but it provides smoother post-dermaplaned skin as well. This also allows for skincare products to penetrate deeper through the skin. Dermaplaning is commonly used in preparation for other skin care procedures, such as laser treatments or chemical peels.
Is Dermaplaning a Good Option for Me?
IDermaplaning is perfect for any skin type, including those with dry skin. If your skin is acne-prone or if you have deep cystic acne, we recommend waiting for your breakouts to clear before trying out dermaplaning. It is also a great option if you are pregnant or nursing but still want to exfoliate your skin. There is no risk to you or your baby since there are no harsh chemicals involved. You will experience no downtime and no adverse side effects. We recommend wearing sunscreen with SPF30 or higher after the procedure since your skin will be more sensitive to the sun.

Microdermabrasion vs. Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning and microdermabrasion are alike in many ways. Both are non-invasive, non-chemical facial procedures that help rejuvenate your skin. Microdermabrasion and dermaplaning are painless, valuable supplemental steps to any facial, and should be completed by a licensed esthetician. Both revitalize wrinkles and dull skin to reveal the glowing skin beneath. But the similarities are only skin-deep. Dermaplaning and microdermabrasion use different devices to accomplish different goals. While dermaplaning uses a surgical scalpel to remove the top layer of skin like a straight shaving razor, microdermabrasion utilizes exfoliant spray and suction to cleanse the skin and pores until they are bare. Dermaplaning does not address hyperpigmentation or other deeper skin conditions. Microdermabrasion can be used in tandem with other treatments to do just that. The right treatment will always depend on your unique skin condition, so choosing between these two effective treatments should always follow an in-depth consultation from our specialists.
