Microdermabrasion is a skin renewal treatment performed by our aestheticians that safely and effectively removes dead skin and corrects minor aesthetic problems to bring a more youthful and vibrant look to your skin. Dermatology Affiliates offers microdermabrasion procedures for clients in Atlanta and Marietta, GA including Buckhead, East Cobb, and Midtown.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is an effective and simple alternative to invasive surgical procedures that revitalizes skin by gently exfoliating the skin surface with a diamond tip wand. The aesthetician uses a device to exfoliate the skin, which rids skin of discolorations and dead skin cells and smooths the skin surface. Small vacuums simultaneously suck away the debris as it is removed. After the procedure, microdermabrasion patients experience softer, more youthful skin with more even and smooth skin texture. Microdermabrasion is not just a temporary solution. It creates a long-lasting, healthy appearance because it facilitates skin cell rejuvenation while also removing dirt and debris from skin pores. In addition, the gentle exfoliation of the upper layer of skin stimulates collagen production, softens fine lines, and promotes tighter, firmer skin. Microdermabrasion works well for all skin tones, and it can improve skin on many areas of the body, including the:

  • Knees
  • Hands
  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Face

Microdermabrasion also provides benefits, such as:

  • Reduction of acne pimples and fewer future blemishes
  • Reduced pore size and acne scars, which improves skin texture
  • Creating smoother skin for a vibrant, healthier glow

For patients who are experiencing the appearance of aging from sun damage or have other aesthetic imperfections, microdermabrasion is a convenient procedure for quickly improving appearance. Microdermabrasion is painless, noninvasive and leaves no ugly scars. In addition, it takes only about an hour to complete, and most patients return immediately to their daily activities. Because the procedure is so gentle, it is okay to apply skin products directly afterward without discomfort.

What are the Results from Microdermabrasion?

Just one treatment leaves skin refreshed, smoother and cleaner. Additional treatments can produce more visible results by encouraging healthier skin. When incorporating microdermabrasion into skin care plan, the results are quickly noticeable. Skin looks healthier without any residue, discomfort, swelling, or redness.

How Do I Prepare for the Procedure?

Preparing for microdermabrasion is simple. It is recommended to stay out of the sun in the few days leading up to the appointment and avoid skincare products with Retin-A. For the appointment, it is necessary to come with a make-up free face.

How Do I Know if I am a Candidate for the Procedure?

Almost anyone is a suitable candidate for microdermabrasion especially those with skin sensitivities to chemicals used in other skin procedures or in acne care products. Since it is so quick, it is also well-suited to anyone on a tight schedule.
