Renewing and refreshing your facial skin is easy with the help of Dr. Rachel Walker of the Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas. With the use of various technologies, patients can now enjoy fast and effective exfoliation of the skin that brings forth youthful, more healthier skin cells from beneath. This can be achieved with a treatment known as microdermabrasion.
What is microdermabrasion?
Dr. Rachel Walker describes microdermabrasion as an exfoliation service that is achieved with a specialized device that uses crystals to remove the top layer of the dermis. This not only clears debris from the pores that can contribute to clogging and acne, but it also eliminates the dead skin cells which can make the face look dull and discolored. At the same time, it also stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production for a more youthful look over several weeks. The procedure is a great stepping stone towards more aggressive exfoliation services including chemical peels.
Who is a good candidate for microdermabrasion?
The best candidates for this treatment are those who want to achieve a more youthful looking face while also addressing imperfections that impact the skin’s appearance, including fine lines and wrinkles and poor skin tone and texture. Below are some of the issues resolved or improved with microdermabrasion services:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Pigmentation problems
- Surgical and acne scars
- Clogged or large pores
- Dull skin tone and texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone and complexion
Is microdermabrasion painful?
This procedure is performed at our office and is done in a way to ensure patients are comfortable. Patients relax in the treatment chair as we prepare the skin by cleansing it. Then, the handpiece that provides the microdermabrasion is passed along the skin. It polishes and vacuums dead skin cells with small crystals, and is done within 30 minutes or less. Patients are comfortable with the procedure, and certain areas that are more sensitive are passed through carefully.
