Microdermabrasion Washington DC
Microdermabrasion is a procedure in which a gentle stream of sand-like crystals exfoliates the outer layer of the skin. This provides a smooth, glowing, youthful appearance. The particles lift away the surface layer of aging, damaged skin which is then removed with the microdermabrasion vacuum tool. This gentle but effective procedure does not require anesthesia. The results are comparable to a light chemical peel with no recovery. Microdermabrasion improves mild to moderate skin damage, superficial scarring, fine wrinkles, and other surface skin problems. This treatment is especially helpful for Asian and dark-skinned patients who may risk skin discoloration with other treatment modalities. To attain the full effect, microdermabrasion is performed as a series of 6 treatments over a period of 6 to 12 weeks.
