Everyday environmental elements combined with the natural aging
process can take a cumulative toll on your skin over the years. Microdermabrasion can smooth away dead surface skin cells and other dulling factors to reveal a rejuvenated complexion and younger-looking skin.

The best candidates for microdermabrasion want to improve the appearance of their skin, and may feel that over-the-counter solutions have fallen short. Some women and men who are not ideal candidates for chemical peels can see very positive results from microdermabrasion instead.

The costs associated with microdermabrasion can vary depending on the size of the treatment area as well as whether additional treatments are performed at the same time. More than one session may be necessary, depending on your personal goals. Dr. Kay and his staff will go over all the available options for cosmetic surgery financing that can help make microdermabrasion and other med spa treatments even more affordable.
Microdermabrasion is a quick, in-office procedure that can leave your complexion looking younger and more luminous. Although a single treatment can make a difference in your appearance, many women and men schedule multiple sessions to take their results to the next level. Microdermabrasion can be performed as a stand-alone treatment, combined with other surgical or nonsurgical procedures, or be incorporated as part of your normal skincare regimen.
At your consultation, Dr. Kay will discuss your hopes for microdermabrasion with you so he can recommend the best approach to use. For example, while microdermabrasion can help improve the appearance of acne scars, Dr. Kay may recommend undergoing acne treatment to clear up existing blemishes before undergoing microdermabrasion.
It’s also important to have realistic expectations about what to expect from your treatment. While microdermabrasion can deliver dramatic results in the right candidates, Dr. Kay may suggest additional procedures that can complement the results of your microdermabrasion to ensure that your cosmetic goals are being met.
During your treatment, Dr. Kay will use the exfoliating power of microdermabrasion to gently slough away dry skin, dead surface skin cells and other pore-clogging impurities that can dull your complexion. The exfoliation process also triggers a regenerative response from your skin, increasing collagen production that will help your results to continue improving for weeks or months after your appointment.
Microdermabrasion requires little to no downtime after your treatment, and most women and men simply return to their normal daily routine. Dr. Kay will ask you to protect the treated area with Vaseline for a few days, and ongoing skincare like sun protection and nighttime moisturizers are essential for maintaining your results long-term.
