Sun-damaged skin is a common result of exposure to direct sunlight for long periods. However, there is a treatment that may minimize the appearance of sun spots on your skin and leave you with almost flawless, smooth skin.
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical treatment in which our specialist uses an instrument that sprays tiny crystals onto your face that exfoliate your skin. It also promotes the production of new skin cells, fresh collagen, and elastin.
The treatment produces ideal results for reducing the appearance of age spots, brown spots, and dull skin. It may also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet.
Unlike dermabrasion, which is safe only for people with fair skin, microdermabrasion works on all skin colors and types. There is almost no downtime, so it is considered a good option for people who need to remove brown spots, but don’t have time to recover.
With microdermabrasion, your skin will be pink after the treatment and feel dry and tight as if it is sunburned, but it will be fully normal within 24 hours. It is recommended that you use moisturizers and avoid certain types of makeup for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
When you have a consultation with us at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, we will discuss your goals and expectations.
The tiny crystals that are sprayed onto your skin gently remove the outer layer of dead, dry skin cells, leaving younger and healthier-looking skin.
We will provide protection for your eyes to ensure that they are not irritated by the crystals. The treatment is not aggressive and does not usually require any numbing cream to be applied.
Microdermabrasion is the ideal treatment for people who are healthy and have minor skin imperfections. It is important for the patient to understand what microdermabrasion can do.
For example, it is not the prescribed treatment for deep wrinkles, folds or sagging skin. We have other non-invasive remedies for those conditions. It is often used to treat light acne scars.
Microdermabrasion is a quick procedure that is performed in our office. Many people choose to have it done during their lunch hour because there is no downtime.
Even though the skin may be pink after treatment, this will fade in a few hours, and you can apply certain types of makeup to cover any visible signs of the treatment.
It may be recommended to have several treatments at intervals of two to three weeks. Your brown spots and sun-damaged skin can look fresh and clear again.
