Microdermabrasion in Bonita Springs is a painless skin-renewal treatment that involves sanding away the thick outer layer of the skin using a specific applicator with an abrasive surface. It is a non-invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves applying vacuum suction to the skin while employing a fine abrasive tip or crystals.
The face, neck, chest, back, and hands can all benefit from microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion does not involve the use of needles or anesthetics. The vacuum pressure and speed will be adjusted depending on the skin’s sensitivity and tolerance.
Ideal Microdermabrasion Candidates
If you are looking for a non-invasive way to improve the health and appearance of your skin, you might be a good candidate for microdermabrasion therapy. It’s a technique that’s safe for most skin types and colors.
Patients with skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, melasma, UV damage, and age spots are ideal candidates for microdermabrasion. If you wish to get rid of blackheads, enlarged pores, acne, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone, you are a good candidate.
The Microdermabrasion Consultation
Prepare to discuss your treatment goals, medical issues, previous surgeries, and medicine allergies during your microdermabrasion consultation. Dr. Houck will inquire about your current medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements, as well as your usage of alcohol, cigarettes, and other drugs.
Prior to the microdermabrasion procedure, your overall health status and any pre-existing health concerns or risk factors will be assessed. Your options, recommended course of treatment, potential outcomes, and possible complications will all be discussed during your session. Ask Dr. Houck any questions you have about the microdermabrasion procedure.
The Microdermabrasion Procedure
Microdermabrasion treatments are divided into two categories. The right technique for you will be determined during your consultation.
In the first technique, a handpiece that sprays small crystals across your skin is one method. A vacuum attached to the machine suctions the exfoliating crystals, as well as the dead or loosened skin, back into the machine.
The other microdermabrasion technique exfoliates your skin with a diamond-tip wand that is softly pushed across it. Each treatment will last around 30 minutes. As the process eliminates the surface skin cells, you may experience slight scratching. There will also be a vibrating sensation, comparable to that of a massage. A suction mechanism is also used to remove the dead skin.
What Happens After the Microdermabrasion Treatment?
There is no downtime or recovery period following your microdermabrasion procedure. After your treatments, Dr. Houck may recommend a special moisturizer or facial product to enhance and prolong your results.
Depending on the severity of your skin damage and the number of microdermabrasion treatments you receive, your enhanced skin and new look should be present for a long time. Many patients start with two treatments per month and then reduce to one treatment per month to maintain optimal results.
How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost?
The price of a microdermabrasion treatment is determined by the type of procedure conducted, the severity of your skin problems, the amount of time and effort required for the process, and the number of treatments completed. Microdermabrasion is considered a cosmetic procedure, and so its cost is not covered by medical insurance.
