The skin is your body’s largest organ and protects you from harm. Over time, however, it can show signs of wear and tear. Acne scars, sun damage, discoloration or uneven texture are all common skin issues that can affect your appearance. Microdermabrasion is a powerful exfoliating process that can help clear up facial skin problems for a fresher, revitalized complexion.
The professional aestheticians at Aesthetic Plastic surgery are skilled in facial rejuvenation techniques, including microdermabrasion. With their customized solutions and cosmetic expertise, they have helped thousands of women and men enjoy a renewed appearance.

Before you schedule a microdermabrasion session, it’s important that you have a consultation with a member of our aesthetic team.

An experienced aesthetician can provide you with the information you need to move forward, as well as answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical skin renewal method that gently exfoliates the skin’s outermost layers for a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance. The procedure also stimulates the production of collagen, a natural protein that helps make skin taut and smooth. Depending upon your skin type and specific goals, a chemical peel in combination with a microdermabrasion treatment may offer optimal results. Chemical peels penetrate below the skin’s surface to help rid the skin of impurities. A chemical peel can also reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars, age spots and discoloration to nicely complement the rejuvenating results of microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion can be an excellent option for anyone who wants to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, discoloration or sun damage. However, pregnant women and individuals with serious acne are advised against the procedure.
Microdermabrasion is typically quick and painless. One treatment lasts about a half hour, and may feel like a mild scratching or vibrating. This sensation is caused by the exfoliation of superficial skin cells. During your microdermabrasion treatment, a skilled technician uses a handheld tool to blow crystals onto the skin, which gently exfoliate before being removed through a suction mechanism, along with dead skin cells. As the technician moves the tool over your skin, multiple passes can be made over problem areas that need the most improvement. The suction can be adjusted for a mild or more aggressive treatment.
Microdermabrasion treatments are usually performed in a series. Individual results vary based on the number of treatments as well as the aggressiveness of the treatment. Many people begin with two microdermabrasion treatments per month before settling into a schedule of maintenance sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to preserve a youthful, refreshed complexion.
Microdermabrasion requires no downtime or recovery. The treatment is quick and non-invasive, and patients can return to their normal schedules immediately following their appointment. Your complexion may appear slightly pink after a microdermabrasion treatment, but this should fade within a few hours.
The rejuvenating results of microdermabrasion should be almost immediately apparent, and will continue to develop over the next several weeks. Proper skincare, including keeping your skin clean and moisturized and practicing good sun protection, can further enhance your results, helping you achieve a healthy, vibrant glow.
