Southwest Michigan Dermatology Portage, MI
Microdermabrasion is one of the most widely used cosmetic procedures in the country that can be used alone or in conjunction with other procedures. Microdermabrasion treatments in Portage and Kalamazoo are non-invasive, and minimally abrasive – using an instrument to gently remove the very outer layer of your skin. Whether you’re looking to treat discoloration, light scarring, stretch marks, or sun damage, microdermabrasion can help by thickening your collagen and giving you more youthful, firm skin of the face and neck.
Microdermabrasion is a great non-surgical, non-invasive way to gently remove dead skin that’s on the outer layer of your face. The removal of this dead skin leaves behind noticeably more vibrant looking healthy skin. Microdermabrasion is one of the most common cosmetic procedures worldwide because of its effectiveness and absence of risk. It is a go to procedure for those who are looking to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, blackheads, scars, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne, and uneven skin tone caused by environmental or various skin conditions.
The simplest explanation of microdermabrasion is that it exfoliates by removing the dead skin which in turn stimulates collagen growth in treated areas. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that gives your skin structural support and tightness and makes your skin more youthful looking. As you age, your collagen production naturally depletes. Using microdermabrasion to remove the stop layer of dead skin will help move the process along and increase collagen production.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that exfoliates, revitalizes, and maintains the skin’s appearance. The procedure can be performed in a series or individually. Microdermabrasion uses a precise flow of very fine crystals to loosen the layer of dead damaged skin cells that form on the surface. The procedure then vacuums away the dead skin cells to reveal newly invigorated skin. A session generally takes about 30 minutes and there is minimal discomfort and virtually no recuperation time. In select cases, a more involved abrasion may be necessary.
