What is the Difference in Microdermabrasion and Dermabrasion?
Many confuse microdermabrasion with the more invasive dermabrasion procedure typically performed by a dermatologist. While both techniques benefit the skin, dermabrasion is done through either sanding the skin or with a laser. It can lead to a moderate recovery time, and introduce a certain level of discomfort and pain. Microdermabrasion requires no such recovery time with similar benefits being achieved through multiple treatments.
Candidates for Microdermabrasion
The procedure is recommended for anyone looking for a minimally invasive procedure to reduce the appearance of:
- Fine Lines
- Sun Damage
- Dark Spots
- Acne Scarring
The Full Microdermabrasion Treatment Consists of:
- Deep Cleansing: Removes harmful oils and bacteria from the skin in a way daily cleansing cannot.
- Exfoliation through Microdermabrasion: Microcrystals are used to remove the dead outermost surface of the skin, exposing the fresh skin underneath.
- SkinMedica Calming Masque: Calms and soothes the skin while adding purifying and protective antioxidants.
- Extractions: Removal of blackheads, whiteheads, and other impurities in the skin in a way that does not leave scarring.
- Sunscreen: Moisturizes the skin and protects from the harmful effects of the sun.
- Neck & Shoulder Massage: To increase relaxation.
Research has shown that receiving three treatments, spaced two weeks apart boosts collagen production in the skin. Results are enhanced when coupled with medical line skin care products from SkinMedica or SkinCeuticals.
"Before Voluma everyone was always asking me if I was sick or sad – and that’s enough to make you sad. After Voluma I get “Hello” and “How are you”, no more sick and sad, just a lot of smiles. I never smiled before Voluma, now I can’t stop smiling."
