While many people have probably heard of microdermabrasion, not many people actually know what it is. Whether you’ve heard a friend touting all the amazing benefits from this treatment or you’ve read about it in your favorite magazine, it’s still important to first talk to our Indianapolis, IN dermatologist, Dr. Sonya Campbell Johnson, and esthestician, Shar Ellison, about whether microdermabrasion is right for you.
What is microdermabrasion?
Looking to get rid of dry, flaky skin and ready to welcome a radiant, healthy new layer of skin instead? If so, then microdermabrasion might be the answer you’ve been looking for. Our microdermabrasion system buffs away dead skin while also polishing the skin with fine crystals. It even stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to improve skin’s tightness.
What skin problems can microdermabrasion address?
People looking to correct fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, acne and superficial scars, age spots, sun damage and clogged pores can benefit from getting microdermabrasion treatments in Indianapolis, IN. When you schedule your consultation we will sit down with you and discuss your treatment goals to make sure they align with what microdermabrasion can offer you.
How does it work?
This non-invasive procedure is a great way to get younger-looking skin. When you come in for treatment a handheld device that contains tiny crystals is placed over the surface of the skin to exfoliate. Some suction also occurs to help remove other debris from your skin. Many patients opt for multiple sessions to keep skin looking and feeling its best and to improve a variety of imperfections.
How long will my recovery be?
An added benefit to getting microdermabrasion is that there is no recovery time involved. The procedure itself is not painful (but you may feel a slight warming sensation during your treatment). Of course, your skin may be red or a bit more sensitive after your treatment so you will want to avoid the sun and wear sunscreen every day. We can also recommend gentle cleansers and other products that will prevent the new skin from becoming irritated.
