What Is MicroDerm?
When you look in the mirror, do you feel your skin is as soft and fresh as you want it to be? Or, are you unhappy with acne scars, fine wrinkles, age spots or dry skin? Defects of the body, especially the face, can severely damage one’s self image.
With a revitalizing technique called MicroDermabrasion, our Chicago MicroDermabrasion specialists can remove dead and flaking skin cells to create an immediate improvement in your skin’s appearance. MicroDermabrasion can remove fine lines and age spots from around the eyes, lips and neck. Stretch marks and acne scars can also be dramatically reduced.
Oftentimes, MicroDermabrasion and/or laser scar revision is used to refine a traumatic or surgical scar. Our Chicago aesthetic surgeon will simply polish off the scar to make it narrow and level so that it blends with the surrounding skin.
How are MicroDermabrasion treatments performed?
Micro-crystals are vacuumed over the skin’s surface with the aid of a delicate hand-piece, affecting a superficial skin polishing. This technique delivers a gentle abrasion, which produces satisfying results in as little as twenty minutes, depending on how large an area of skin is involved. MicroDermabrasion treatments are applied through a course of weekly sessions, especially when wrinkles and scarring are deep. MicroDermabrasion treatments enhance the skin’s condition and does what no other available treatment can (without surgery) in combating the signs of aging skin. Most importantly, it is safe to use on all skin types and colors.
