What is Involved in a Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a facial rejuvenation technique that works by exfoliating the outermost layers of skin. Microdermabrasion uses small, abrasive crystals to target and exfoliate skin in the desired areas. This gentle approach is often preferred to more aggressive techniques like laser resurfacing, as it is more comfortable and requires less downtime. Microdermabrasion can be used to target aged or damaged skin cells, which is perfect for addressing cosmetic concerns that include:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- And more
How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost in Fayetteville, NC?
The average cost of microdermabrasion varies widely. Factors that affect the cost of your procedure include the areas involved, the number of treatments necessary, and other factors that are determined during the consultation. To help you have a budget in mind when you meet with one of our plastic surgeons, we invite you to learn about our financing options.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
The microdermabrasion treatment is gentle and comfortable, so no anesthetic is necessary. During treatment, we will use a handheld microdermabrasion device to blast small abrasive crystals onto the skin. As these crystals exfoliate skin cells in the targeted area, a vacuum system collects all the debris to keep the skin clean. A microdermabrasion treatment is typically performed in about 30 minutes.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from Microdermabrasion?
The recovery from microdermabrasion is very brief, and typically only involves minor redness in the skin for a few hours following treatment. There is no downtime after microdermabrasion, so you will be able to resume all normal activities immediately following your appointment.
What Results Can I Expect from Microdermabrasion?
Some of the results from your microdermabrasion treatment will be visible immediately after treatment. These results may improve over the following days as the skin heals. Since microdermabrasion is a gentle exfoliation technique, you may need multiple treatment sessions to achieve significant improvements in the cosmetic concerns listed above. During your consultation, we’ll let you know how many treatments you can expect. Many patients choose to receive regular microdermabrasion treatments in order to maintain their results.
