Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that is performed to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, crows feet, and other signs of aging. The procedure uses a fine spray of microcrystals to reduce older, dead skin cells and rejuvenate the patient’s appearance. Microdermabrasion is offered at Light Facial Plastic Surgery in Decatur, Alabama along with dermaplaning, chemical peels, and other non-surgical treatments.
Microdermabrasion is a highly effective skin treatment that is performed to exfoliate the skin and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen, two proteins that are vital for a smooth, youthful-looking complexion. A hand-held device is moved over the treatment area that emits a fine spray of tiny aluminum oxide crystals. The crystals treat old, dry skin cells to reveal the younger, healthier layers underneath. Many patients notice improvement after just one treatment, but usually a series of five to twelve treatments is necessary for optimal microdermabrasion benefits. We use the highly regarded Bella microdermabrasion machine at our practice with outstanding results.
