Benefits Of Microdermabrasion As an Answer To Skin Problems

You have probably encountered a number of microdermabrasion kits and devices while shopping online or perusing the local department store or drugstore. Maybe you’ve tried these products and later declared them a “waste of money.”

Dermatologic professionals like Dr. Bryan Selkin and his team at the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery have access to medical grade powerful yet gentle treatments resulting in noticeable and potentially dramatic improvements in the texture and appearance of your skin.

It’s good for public health and safety that these types of treatments are only available through medical practitioners in a clinical setting, because otherwise risks would be posed from misuse of products. This could cause damage to the skin, which is more problematic than the condition you are trying to correct with microdermabrasion in the first place. At the Center for Dermatology, we use we what feel is a more updated, safe, and effective form of microdermabrasion known as “Hydrafacial.” Patients have been thrilled with results of this lunch-time, virtually no downtime procedure.

Do you need Hydrafacial?

You may be a good candidate for this type of treatment if your skin appears lackluster. You may suffer from dry or rough skin. Enlarged pores are also telltale signs of aging, along with fine lines and age spots. Many pregnant women may experience the hormonal changes that give rise to large brownish patches known as “melasma.” They may also be bothered by stretch marks.

Hydrafacial is a minimally-invasive answer to eliminate or reduce the appearance of these conditions, as well as to help with one of the most common types of sun damage: freckles and age spots.

What makes Hydrafacial so attractive?

You don’t have to go under the knife to see a difference in the look of your creases and furrows. You also don’t have to undergo laser treatments, chemical peels, or the administration of injectables such as Botox to address lines and other signs of aging. Furthermore, many of these alternative treatments may not be suitable if you suffer from certain medical conditions or have a skin type or tone that increases the risk of unwanted side effects and complications.

Dr. Bryan Selkin and his colleagues use a specialized fine device with vacuum technology and specialized serums to create a “vortex” effect which dislodges impurities and stimulates collagen and elastin.

The number of treatments you may need generally depends on the condition being treated, the severity of the condition, and your goals. Generally, the treatment is long-lasting and you will see improvements in the texture and look of your skin with repeated treatment sessions.
