Houston, TX dermatologist describes the microdermabrasion procedure
Patients in the Houston, TX area who desire a more even and beautiful skin tone may want to consider procedures such as microdermabrasion. This particular treatment is wonderful for exfoliating the skin in a non-invasive manner to help improve the complexion—making it more even in color, brighter, smoother, and more youthful.
Dr. Seymour Weaver and the team of Dr. W Dermatology can help patients determine if the microdermabrasion procedure is appropriate for their specific concerns. This particular procedure is known for appealing to patients of all ages and genders because it can achieve more youthful skin without any downtime. It can help diminish the signs of aging, improve dull complexion, reduce and remove age spots, improve melasma, and even address acne scars. This makes it a wonderful solution for individuals who want to enhance the overall appearance and health of their skin.
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that is performed right in the dermatologist’s office. It does not require anesthetics and patients are comfortable throughout the treatment. A precision hand piece is used to direct a stream of fine crystals that provides an exfoliation of the outermost layer of the skin, while mild suction helps keep the spray in place and removes debris from the skin’s surface. The power of the spray is controlled by the dermatologist so the treatment can be as aggressive or as gentle as necessary.
Most patients can expect their microdermabrasion procedure to last approximately twenty minutes. They may experience some redness after their procedure, but this will only last the remainder of the day and can be easily concealed with cosmetics if necessary. Otherwise, most patients go about the rest of their day without any interruption and downtime, making it the perfect “lunchtime procedure.”
