29 Sep Microdermabrasion with serum infusion – your new best friend?
Spring is right around the corner. And you know what that means? It’s time to unbundle those winter layers and start afresh. If you’re concerned that the dry winter air has gotten the best of your skin, we invite you to consider one of dermatology’s most sought-after procedures: microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion quite literally removes the dull, top layer of your skin to reveal healthier, glowing and fresh skin underneath. Consider it a deep exfoliation, ideal for any of the following conditions:
- Age spots / sun spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Black heads / whiteheads / acne
- Enlarge pores
- Uneven complexion (i.e. hyperpigmentation)
- Dull skin tone
What makes microdermabrasion so appealing is that it’s quick, painless, and easy. In as little as 20 minutes, it can leave your skin feeling soft with a healthy glow. An added benefit is that there’s no downtime. While it may leave your skin with mild redness for about 15 minutes, you can go back to your normal life right away.
Plus, it’s safe and effective for all skin types, and its flexible options allows customized treatments.
What is the process?
The original technique of microdermabrasion involved the use of loose crystal particles to exfoliate the skin. This outdated technique has now been replaced by the gentler diamond microdermabrasion. This uses a wand with a diamond tip to lightly remove dead, dull skin cells.
We combine the gentle exfoliation of the diamond wand with simultaneous infusion of regenerative serums- -targeted to your specific needs- into your skin. In this process, when our specialized handpiece comes into contact with the skin, it activates the controlled suction. This suction then extracts clogged pores and impurities and exfoliates dead skin cells. At the same time, it uses pressure to infuse the skin with ingredient-rich serums. This simultaneous exfoliation and serum infusion ensure optimal skin receptivity to the serums.
How does microdermabrasion work?
The science behind this is real: microdermabrasion’s gentle exfoliation rejuvenates skin by stimulating collagen production and blood circulation. This, in turn, improves your skin’s elasticity and texture, leaving your skin softer and more youthful. In order to provide the best results, we offer two different microdermabrasion machines: “Dermasweep” and “DiamondTome.”
What are my options?
At Eternal Dermatology, we also offer our signature “Hydroderm” treatment. This treatment differs from traditional diamond tip microdermabrasion in that it focused on cleansing the pores with simultaneous serum infusion into the skin. The suction mechanism enhances the exfoliation, with less direct friction to the skin. This is particularly useful for individuals with active acne, for whom spreading of bacteria is a concern. It is also a favorite for people looking to achieve their “Eternal Glow” for an upcoming event like a big date or a night out.
Is microdermabrasion a one-time thing?
This treatment provides powerful results, but it is usually not one something you only do one time. To get the best results, we suggest a series of 4 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Once you reach your desired results, you may want to have touch-up treatments performed every so often. This helps to maintaining the best results.
