Do you ever look in the mirror and wish your dull skin was more even and brighter? Microdermabrasion can provide the results you’re looking for by decreasing the appearance of light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, acne, age spots, melasma and fine lines and wrinkles, for a smoother, fresher, more youthful appearance.


What is microdermabrasion?

The microdermabrasion procedure we do in our main office in Annapolis or our satellite office in Easton differs considerably from the microdermabrasion facial treatment you can do at home. Safe for all types of skin, this treatment goes deeper for more significant results.

Microdermabrasion, a minimally invasive procedure, helps thicken collagen, a protein in your skin responsible for making skin appear taut and smooth. It’s abundant when you’re young, but collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin. Microdermabrasion removes the dead outer layer of your skin, allowing the smooth, softer skin underneath to come to the surface.

Understanding microdermabrasion

First, your skin is cleaned. Then, using a hand-held device with a diamond tip, the top layers of your skin are exfoliated by flowing aluminum oxide crystals quickly onto your skin and vacuuming away the loose crystals and dead skin. The procedure takes approximately an hour and you can return to your daily activities immediately after.

After microdermabrasion: recovery and results

After treatment, the underlying skin instantly looks and feels smoother and more radiant. Your skin may be a little pink, which goes away within a few hours, replaced by a healthy glow and smoother, more even-toned skin. Scars and discoloration will be lighter, pores will appear smaller, and there will be a noticeable reduction in wrinkles.

Any minimal discomfort is short-lived and can include a little redness and swelling. You can expect your skin to be flaky and dry for several days and more sensitive to the sun, so you’ll want to use sunscreen, especially immediately following a microdermabrasion session.

Treatments should be repeated every four to six weeks for optimal results. The number of microdermabrasion sessions you’ll need will depend on the severity of your skin concerns as well as your expectations. You’ll work with our estheticians to develop the right plan for your needs.

If you’re considering microdermabrasion, your next step should be a consultation with one of our skin care experts.
