Microdermabrasion

Reveal the Beauty of Rejuvenation in Albuquerque

microdermabrasion

If you feel like your skin is dull, flaky, or in need of a good exfoliation, it might be time for a session of microdermabrasion in Albuquerque. Often referred to as simply "microderm," this cosmetic procedure partially or completely removes the outermost layer of your skin (technically known as the stratum cornea) through a light abrasion. The gentle tool used is the original crystal free DiamondTome wand.

Many patients choose microdermabrasion simply to rejuvenate their look, bringing a more polished and youthful appearance to their face. Because the treatment can remove an entire skin layer where marks and pigmentation problems sit, it can also reduce the appearance of a variety of cosmetic problems unique to each patient.

What Can Microdermabrasion Treat?

Specifically, microdermabrasion is ideal for reducing the appearance of scars and the negative effects of ultraviolet radiation, including:

  • sun damage
  • acne scars
  • dark spots
  • raised or flat marks

Note that sunken scars do not react to microdermabrasion with the same degree of success as other scars. Also, for patients choosing microdermabrasion to treat acne, the treatments must be repeated periodically.

How Does Microdermabrasion Work?

This treatment offers two main benefits: First, it gets rid of the dead skin cells that can make a face look dull and worn. This layer holds onto much of the daily wear and tear experienced by the skin, so polishing it away takes those signs along with it. The material that is removed by the abrasion is typically suctioned off with a small vacuum. Second, the process encourages healing processes in the newly revealed layers to kick into a higher gear. As the production of beneficial skin components increases, the effect can be visible in a rejuvenated look.

In other words, as old layers of skin are gently loosened and vacuumed away, new, healthier skin will appear in its place, making you look younger and healthier with every treatment!*

Why Choose Western Dermatology Consultants for Microdermabrasion in Albuquerque?

The mechanics of a microdermabrasion treatment sound simple—remove the outermost layer of skin by gently abrading it away—but the method requires experience and knowhow. While the process may sound somewhat uncomfortable, technological advances and the skill of our board-certified dermatologists means you have the potential for a painless experience that would not call for anesthetic. Afterward, you can enjoy skin that feels lighter and cleaner and has a healthy glow.* For those with uneven skin tones, microdermabrasion is an option that can reduce noticeable contrasts.

Are There More Options for Skin Rejuvenation?

The Western Dermatology Consultants team works to give every patient a range of options so that each woman and man seeking skin care can receive a customized plan meant to maximize personalized results. While microdermabrasion is ideal for many people, others may choose chemical peels, which have a similar effect, but make use of topical agents applied directly to the face. These chemicals ultimately cause the outermost layer to peel away, exposing younger, fresher skin beneath. Other options include photodynamic therapy, Thermage®, and fractional laser treatments.
