What results can I expect from microdermabrasion?
Poor health, diet, aging, stress, and the elements of nature can hinder the skin’s cell renewal process. Microdermabrasion accelerates the cellular turnover process, bringing you closer to healthier, younger-looking skin. It allows you to gradually resurface your skin without the risks, side effects, and down time of more aggressive alternatives. In as little as 20 minutes, this gentle, abrasive technique efficiently produces satisfying results. Improvements in appearance and texture will occur with successive treatments. Microdermabrasion can be used aggressively to achieve dramatic results, but does not take the place of surgical or laser treatments.
How many microdermabrasion treatments will I need?
To achieve maximum results, several microdermabrasion treatments are recommended, typically scheduled 1 to 3 weeks apart. You will experience a progressive improvement throughout your treatment program. Ask to schedule a consultation in our San Francisco clinic to determine the approximate number of treatments recommended for optimum effects.
How does my skin look immediately after treatment?
Microdermabrasion leaves your skin feeling soft and you will notice a healthy glow to your complexion. Due to the increase of circulation, a mild temporary blush surrounding the treated area may be the only evidence of your therapy.
