What is microdermabrasion?

Our West Palm Beach Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive and non-particle procedure that uses diamond embedded wands, which have been sifted to be a particular size and shape to treat various types of skin. As the wand is passed over the skin, the diamonds and adjustable vacuum suction remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells to reveal younger, healthier looking skin. Microdermabrasion also encourages the production of a new layer of skin cells containing higher levels of collagen and elastin, both of which further improve your skin's appearance. Microdermabrasion is effective for sun damaged skin, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines and acne scarring and can be safely performed on any area of the face or body.

Benefits of microdermabrasion

We believe that our West Palm Beach microdermabrasion has a place in every individual’s anti-aging skincare regimen.

Not only is the treatment incredibly effective, but it also comes with a whole host of appealing benefits for our patients, including:

  • The ability to rejuvenate sun-damaged and aging skin without harsh lasers or surgery
  • A comfortable and virtually painless procedure
  • No downtime or recovery period
  • Immediate results

What to expect during microdermabrasion

Your West Palm Beach microdermabrasion treatments will be performed entirely in the comfort of our Palm Beach Gardens office. To begin, our provider will apply aluminum oxide crystals to your skin. She will then use the microdermabrasion system to exfoliate the treatment area, removing your dead skin cells and excess crystals. You can expect this process to be completely comfortable, with most of our patients only experiencing a mild warming sensation at the very most. Because microdermabrasion is non-invasive, you’ll be able to resume your normal daily routine without any downtime or activity restrictions immediately after your treatment. However, your skin will be more sensitive than usual, so it’s important to stay out of the sun and protect your complexion for the next several days.

Who is a good candidate for microdermabrasion?

In general, good candidates for microdermabrasion are unhappy with the appearance of clogged pores, age spots, sun damage, acne scarring, wrinkles, rosacea, and a poor skin texture. If you have recently undergone a chemical peel, you should postpone your microdermabrasion session for about 2 weeks. Patients should also avoid tanning and waxing for several weeks prior to their appointment. Those who are pregnant or those with moderate to severe acne, keloid scars, warts, herpes, diabetes, an active skin infection, or an autoimmune disease will be best served with a different treatment. Ultimately, only a private consultation with our team can determine your candidacy for sure.

Soothing, refreshing, and luxurious, our microdermabrasion services address a broad range of skin conditions. Although your skin should be visibly improved after your first microdermabrasion session, most of our patients in West Palm Beach, FL and surrounding areas require multiple treatments to achieve their cosmetic and anti-aging goals. In general, we recommend four to six treatments spaced two weeks apart for maximum results. With that said, we will provide you with a personalized timeline during your initial consultation for your Jupiter, FL microdermabrasion treatment.

Is microdermabrasion right for you?

To be considered an ideal candidate for microdermabrasion treatments, you should want to address cosmetic imperfections and telltale signs of aging that the procedure can successfully fix. For example, it’s best for men and women who suffer from fairly mild skin conditions, such as fine facial lines, light wrinkles, and minor scars. If you have more aggressive imperfections, such as deep acne scarring and advanced wrinkles, microdermabrasion won’t be in your best interest because you’ll likely require a stronger treatment approach.
