Microdermabrasion Phoenix | Scottsdale Arizona
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure which rejuvenates the skin by improving superficial skin problems.
Microdermabrasion involves a gentle exfoliation of the outer layer of skin using tiny particles which remove the surface layer of aged or damaged skin. Because only a small amount of skin is removed, treatment is appropriate for sensitive areas like the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. Microdermabrasion produces a fresher and more youthful looking glow, with results that are comparable to a light chemical peel.
While able to improve a variety of superficial skin problems, microdermabrasion is commonly used to treat the following:
• mild to moderate sun damage
• fine lines and superficial wrinkles
• microdermabrasion for acne scars
Suddenly Slimmer Licensed Medical Estheticians perform microdermabrasion. Anesthesia is not necessary and treatment times average thirty minutes to an hour. A special device or handpiece is used to apply a gentle stream of tiny particles to the skin. These particles gently abrade the skin to remove the damaged outer layer which is then brushed off with a microdermabrasion vacuum tool.
The results of microdermabrasion are immediate, though multiple treatments are usually needed to achieve the full effect. Though the skin may appear slightly red or feel a bit flushed after treatment, there are virtually no side effects and work and other normal activities can be resumed immediately.
