Microdermabrasion

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.

Is Microdermabrasion Right for You?

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.

Microdermabrasion can:

  • Correct your complexion without chemicals
  • Promote increased collagen production for long-lasting results
  • Complement your existing skincare routine
  • Improve rough skin texture
  • Keep your complexion looking more radiant
  • Work in combination with other skin rejuvenation treatments for even better results
  • Help you maintain a youthful look for longer

Microdermabrasion Costs

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.

What to Expect

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.

Your Recovery & Results

  1. Because microdermabrasion has such a minimal recovery time, you should see almost immediate results after your very first session. Depending on your personal goals, Dr. Kay may recommend multiple treatments spaced a few weeks apart for the best results.
  2. After microdermabrasion, your skin should look clearer, smoother and refreshed, and existing fine lines and wrinkles should become less visible. Existing acne scars or other minor imperfections can be diminished with microdermabrasion, or even eliminated completely after several sessions. Microdermabrasion offers a chemical-free, nonsurgical alternative that can improve your skin’s health along with your appearance, without downtime or scars.
