It’s hard to believe that Holiday Parties with family, friends and co-workers are just around the corner. This is the perfect time to treat yourself and your skin to a glowing, holiday look.
An easy, quick and simple way to get a fresh look for winter is with microdermabrasion, the number two non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the country.
Microdermabrasion is safe and effective and is recommended by Dr. Guarnieri as a way to improve the appearance of light scarring, sun-damaged skin, fine wrinkles, acne-prone skin, freckles and age spots. Microdermabrasion is also affordable and can be performed over your lunch hour.
- Microdermabrasion is non-invasive and uses a wand that is passed over your skin. Very small air-driven crystals are gently blown against your skin, cleansing and abrading your skin’s top layer. The dead skin and used crystals are then vacuumed away into a sealed container.
- By removing just the top layer of your skin, microdermabrasion stimulates your body to produce collagen and increase cell turnover.
- A microdermabrasion treatment is uniquely customized to your specific areas of concern.
- The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes.
- There is virtually no pain or downtime. You can return to normal activities immediately, looking glowing and refreshed.
- Our patients at Williamsburg Plastic Surgery state that they find the treatment soothing and not as painful as a laser skin resurfacing treatment.
- Your skin typically regenerates at approximately 30-day intervals, which means microdermabrasion should be repeated every four weeks to see optimal
- Microdermabrasion can be used on your face, back or chest.
- More good news: It’s not just for women!
If you are concerned about acne scars, age spots or fine wrinkles, but aren’t yet ready to try a laser treatment or a chemical peel, microdermabrasion may be the perfect solution to help you feel better about yourself this Holiday Season.
