Microdermabrasion

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a gentle, non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure. It is fast, comfortable, and has no downtime, making it a popular lunchtime procedure. It has long been among the beauty secrets of Hollywood celebrities, and the procedure has gained widespread popularity in recent years. The process involves the application of tiny granules combined with vacuum suction, which gently loosen and remove dead or damaged cells from the surface of the skin, leaving a healthy, beautiful glow.

What can microdermabrasion treat?

This technique is used to improve the tone and texture of skin. It may be used alone, or in combination with other procedures, to treat a variety of skin concerns, including:

A Woman Recieving Microdermabrasion Treatment
  • Large pores
  • Pigmentation problems
  • Rough texture
  • Sun damage
  • Aging skin
  • Acne
  • Superficial wrinkles
  • Minor scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • And more

Microdermabrasion treatment at Dr. W Dermatology

Like all procedures in our office, microdermabrasion is always performed by a qualified, properly trained professional. This technique is much gentler than dermabrasion, which removes several layers of skin. Microdermabrasion utilizes ultrafine particles, which act on the uppermost layer of skin. A specialized vacuuming device is used to remove the skin cells and debris as they are loosened. The procedure is quite comfortable; you should feel no more than a mild scratching sensation, and a gentle vibration, which is reminiscent of a luxurious massage.

The procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete, and it can be used on any area of the body. A single microdermabrasion treatment will yield noticeable results. However, depending on the condition of your skin, a series of appointments may be recommended for maximum benefits. There is no downtime, and no uncomfortable recovery period.

Microdermabrasion combination treatments

Due to the versatility and gentle nature of this procedure, it is an excellent complement to many other treatments. It gives skin a smoother, more youthful appearance, which is a great addition to anti-aging treatment such as dermal fillers. Microdermabrasion may also be beneficial as part of a therapeutic plan for the treatment of conditions such as acne.

“For about two years, I’ve had problems with skin irritations in my inner elbow area on both arms, behind the knees of both legs, on my lower legs and inside on top of my ankles as well as inside my armpits. The problem occurred when the weather became hot (late spring and summer into early fall), and was terribly annoying because these areas itched a lot and then left some dark scarring. Last summer, the problem spread to my neck area!

Until I saw Dr. Weaver, I was trying to alleviate the condition with Tinactin and then alcohol, but the alcohol blistered the skin on my neck!

I decided finally to call and schedule an appointment with the doctor (who has been treating my son for severe acne-cyst formation, etc for over a year). Dr. Weaver diagnosed my condition as a form of eczema and prescribed an ointment and gave samples of a pill.

As soon as I started using this ointment, the problem improved tremendously! I am very satisfied with the results I have seen and by the way, haven’t even needed the pills.

Thank you Dr. Weaver!!!”
