Are you looking for microdermabrasion in New York City? Microdermabrasion is a skin exfoliation process that resurfaces the skin, to remove sun damage and to minimize the appearance of scars and dark spots. Microdermabrasion is also widely used for treatment of acne and acne scarring.
Microdermabrasion effectively resurfaces areas including the face, back, chest, and arms, for both males and females, with periodic treatments. Microdermabrasion does not require anesthesia, and therefore requires no downtime. The dead outermost layer of skin is removed, stimulating collagen production, and leaving skin renewed and refreshed.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is microdermabrasion?
- Microdermabrasion is a skin exfoliation process that resurfaces the skin to remove sun damage and minimize the appearance of scars and dark spots. Microdermabrasion in New York City is also used to treat acne and acne scarring.
How does microdermabrasion work?
- Microdermabrasion removes the stratum corneum, that outer most layer of skin, made up of dead cells. The stratum corneum is where many minor skin blemishes reside, such as fine wrinkles, blemishes, and minor scars. After a session of microdermabrasion the body will respond as though you have a minor injury, and it will begin to send new, fresh cells to the area.
- Microdermabrasion may be paired with a chemical peel for optimal results.
How long is the down time?
