Regular exfoliation can be a valuable part of any skincare regimen. By routinely sloughing away dead skin, you can maintain a radiant complexion and even boost the effectiveness of your favorite at-home products. But at-home exfoliation isn't always the best option, especially if you're sensitive to certain ingredients. At Primera Med Spa, microdermabrasion helps our patients from Orlando, FL, and other communities near Lake Mary reveal healthy, glowing skin without harsh ingredients.
Planning Your Microdermabrasion
When you visit Primera Med Spa for the first time you start by meeting with the physician assistant, who evaluates your skin and talks to you to determine whether microdermabrasion is right for you. The physician assistant also helps you understand the kind of results you can expect. In many cases, we perform microdermabrasion the same day.
Microdermabrasion is an excellent all-purpose treatment that can offer measurable benefit to various skin types. We often recommend undergoing a series of treatments, spaced about 1 month apart, to treat specific concerns, including:
- Fine lines
- Textural irregularities
- Sun damage
- Acne and breakouts
Before & After Photos
What to Expect
Microdermabrasion is a relatively brief procedure that doesn't require any downtime, and most appointments take less than 1 hour. During your treatment, your practitioner first cleanses your face. He or she then applies the handpiece to your skin. The handpiece directs tiny crystals to your skin while suctioning away spent crystals and debris. Our aestheticians typically complete multiple passes across your face, neck, and décolletage in a single session for optimal results. Microdermabrasion is not painful, and many patients use the appointment as an opportunity to relax and recharge.
Enjoying Your Results
After your microdermabrasion appointment, you can immediately get back to your usual activities. However, our aestheticians typically advise patients to avoid prolonged, unexpected sun exposure for a couple of days, since the new skin that's been uncovered is especially sensitive to the sun.
In addition to improving your complexion, microdermabrasion can also help you get the most out of your favorite skincare products. That's because, without an outer layer of dead skin to act as a blockage, the active ingredients in serums, creams, and cleansers can penetrate deeper, delivering nutrients into skin's tissues where they can be used effectively.
Many patients can benefit from a series of microdermabrasion treatments. During your consultation, we'll work with you to develop a treatment regimen that fits your lifestyle and your budget.
