What is microdermabrasion?

At CosMedic Skincare, our non-invasive microdermabrasion services are offered with the advanced crystal-free HydraFacial MD® system. The diamond tip and adjustable suction enable us to tailor your treatment to your unique condition, your specifications, and your desired results. Using the diamond-tip device, the skin is exfoliated to remove damaged cells while clearing the pores to reveal a fresh, healthy appearance. Microdermabrasion can improve a variety of skin imperfections, including acne scars, age spots, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles.

What happens in the microdermabrasion treatment?

To begin your microdermabrasion treatment, Dr. Reinertson will utilize the handheld device to gently remove the top layer of your skin, which typically stores dull, damaged cells. She will apply a moisturizer following your treatment to help the skin heal, promoting collagen and elastin production. To obtain optimal results, you may need to undergo a series of treatments, which will be discussed with you during your consultation.

What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion can be performed on all skin types, making it a great solution for many people wanting to rejuvenate their appearance and obtain a more even skin tone. The non-invasive treatment can address a range of cosmetic skin concerns, helping diminish light scarring, smooth wrinkles, correct pigmentation issues, and provide an overall brighter complexion. For a more in-depth skin rejuvenation, you may be a good candidate for the MicroPeel pprocedure, which combines microdermabrasion with a chemical peel.

How long does a microdermabrasion treatment take?

Microdermabrasion treatments last about 30 minutes on average, but this may slightly vary based on the extent of your customized treatment plan.

What areas can be treated with microdermabrasion?

The microdermabrasion procedure is most commonly used to treat the face and neck, as these areas are most prone to signs of aging, sun damage, and acne scarring. The treatment can also be a great option for improving the skin’s appearance on the chest, back, and hands. During your consultation, Dr. Reinertson will perform a skin exam to determine if microdermabrasion is the most appropriate option for your needs, or if an alternative or additional skin care solution can provide enhanced results.

How often do I need microdermabrasion?

Since environmental factors continue to affect the health of our skin, you may want to undergo regular microdermabrasion treatments to maintain your renewed appearance, sloughing off the dull outer layer of skin. Depending on the condition of your skin to begin with, Dr. Reinertson may recommend monthly treatment sessions.

Does microdermabrasion hurt?

If you are seeking microdermabrasion treatment, the sensation is often compared to the feel of a cat’s tongue. The rough sensation combined with suction enables the exfoliation of impurities and dead skin cells, and this process is not typically painful. To ensure you remain as comfortable as possible, the treatment will be customized to be effective while producing minimal discomfort.

How much does microdermabrasion cost?

The cost of microdermabrasion will vary from patient to patient. Factors such as the extent of treatment needed and number of areas to be treated will influence the total amount you can expect to pay. On average, the cost of microdermabrasion is $138, but Dr. Reinertson will provide an individual quote for your procedure when she has had the opportunity to evaluate your skin condition and goals. Microdermabrasion can be purchased as an individual procedure, or it can be combined in a package of services, causing your overall treatment costs to be discounted.
