Do you ever look in the mirror and wish your face had a more even skin tone? If you answered yes, you may want to consider microdermabrasion. This non-invasive treatment gently exfoliates your skin for a more healthy glow. After a series of treatments, your complexion will appear smoother, brighter, and more even in color.

Microdermabrasion performed in a board certified dermatologist’s office differs from those performed at home. Dermatologist treatments penetrate deeper into the skin, still allowing a safe procedure for all skin types.

Microdermabrasion appeals to many patients of all ages and skin types. Patients appreciate more youthful and smooth skin without the downtime. The procedure eliminates a dull complexion which leads to excess buildup of makeup, leading to the appearance of fine lines.

Dermatologists also use microdermabrasion to optimize the results gained from using anti-aging products and skin-bleaching products. Microdermabrasion allows these products to penetrate the skin more easily.
