Look 10 years younger. Tighten your skin. Eliminate blemishes. Look younger with a dermabrasion or microdermabrasion.
is a non-surgical procedure which exfoliates (takes off) the Stratum Corneum (the top layer of skin) with an abrasive scrubbing tool. Once removed, the remaining skin rejuvenates with skin that is usually smoother, clearer and tighter than before. Dermabrasions go deep below the skin's top layer and thus are performed under the care of a board certified
are similar, but are a cosmetic form of dermabrasions because microdermabrasions do not remove as much of the Stratum Corneum.
There is less risk of skin damage with a microdermabrasion.
Thus, it can be performed by a clinician at a “medi-spa”. Every year, 23,000 women get dermabrasions and about 4,500 men. Whereas over 452,000 women and 28,000 men get microdermabrasions. Microdermabrasions treatments produce fantastic results.
To perform, both the microdermabrasion and dermabrasions are safe, the clinician uses a handheld device with a spinning wheel and rough surface. This abrasive tool is then rubbed on the surface of your face which removes the upper layer of skin. The tool is very similar to sandpaper but various surfaces are used. The resurfacing of the skin can be cause discomfort during the procedure. Specific areas can be targeted or the procedure can be applied over the entire face.
The micro dermabrasion can be administered by an aesthetician or even at a spa. However, a dermabrasion is a much deeper removal of the top layer of skin and must be performed by a board-certified dermatologist/physician.
Below is a quick video that compares microdermabrasions and chemical peels.
What conditions are treated?
Am I good candidate?
You are a good candidate for a dermabrasion if you have sun-dried skin, uneven or blotchy skin, scars, facial wrinkles, acne scars, pits and discoloration.
During and after the procedure your face will likely feel stiff and tight. It will be visually alarming with the bruises produced by the rubbing off the top layer of skin. Some people look as if they have been in a very bad fist fight or car accident. Avoid the temptation to panic. As seen in the before and after photos, your face will heal smoother and tighter than before. You may also experience tightness, as the under layer of skin is slightly less elastic then the Stratum Corneum, the top layer. Your skin will also be slightly red and or swollen. The clinician will likely prescribed an ointment to be applied after the procedure for the pain and swelling.
If you experience long lasting pain or extreme pain then you should contact your physician to find out if your pain is normal or part of a bigger problem.

Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure and does not require any down time. You can resume your daily routine immediately after the microdermabrasion treatment.
A dermabrasion goes much deeper to resurface your skin down to the college in layer. The downtime is approximately 10 days and this procedure must be performed by a physician. The cost ranges between $1,800-$3,000. The microdermabrasion procedures produces fantastic results.
A microdermabrasion cost is typically $150-$300, depending upon the size of the area treated. It is typically performed by aestheticians and doesn't require board certified medical care.

Consult with your physician to see if your circumstances could be covered by medical insurance.
