Are you tired of seeing dull, thick, or lifeless skin looking back at you when you look in the mirror? If so, then you need to consider microdermabrasion, a non-invasive yet incredibly effective treatment that will smooth your skin and make it look youthful again. Here at Westover Hills Dermatology in San Antonio, Texas, we offer this treatment to our patients, which is non-invasive, with no downtime required. Let’s take a closer look at this revolutionary treatment and how it can help you live your best life.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is an innovative cosmetic treatment that can help transform your skin. This treatment may be quick and straightforward, but it’s incredibly effective because it gets rid of dead skin cells, making the skin look smoother and giving you a more even skin tone, too. Essentially, the treatment removes the older surface of your skin to reveal the skin underneath that’s smoother and more youthful.
Not only does it remove dead skin, but it does quite a lot to make your skin much healthier, too. It removes any rough spots and even promotes smoother and healthier skin that looks rejuvenated. As you probably already know, things like dull, uneven skin can make you appear older and more tired. Once we remove all that dull skin, you’ll look vibrant, youthful, and much more refreshed!
How Does This Treatment Work?
The treatment process is actually quite simple. Essentially, it consists of a device that exfoliates and removes those dull and dead skin cells that cause the skin to look aged and worn over time. This small, hand-held machine removes those dead skin cells, revealing skin that’s more youthful and smooth underneath.
Two Different Treatment Methods
Here at Westover Hills Dermatology, we offer two different types of microdermabrasion to our patients. The first method uses a device that streams tiny crystals against your skin, exfoliating and removing dead skin cells. This device also has a vacuum to suck back up the crystals and the dead skin after we’ve treated your problem areas. Once the old skin cells are removed, your skin will look radiant and smooth again.
The other treatment method uses a diamond-tipped wand, which gently moves across your skin to remove the rough, dead skin cells. Not only is this treatment painless, but it also offers results almost immediately, so you can address a variety of skin issues you may have both quickly and effectively.
What Should You Expect During Treatment?
The treatment process is both simple and painless. First, we’ll apply the tool directly to the problem areas on your face or any other area of your body. It can help remove skin issues such as:
- Minor scarring
- Age spots
- Stretch marks
- Discolored skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Dull Skin
Not only is this treatment painless, but many of our patients describe the experience and relaxing. Once you come to our state-of-the-art office, we’ll tell you exactly what to expect during your treatment session and make sure that you’re quite comfortable. You should discuss any particular skin issues you have during your initial consultation, and we’ll develop a customized treatment plan for you so you can achieve the exact results you want when it comes to your skin.
