Microdermabrasion in Albuquerque


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 (the stratum cornea) through a light abrasion. Depending on the method you receive, the gentle tool used may be DiamondTome, or another type of roughened surface. The material that is removed by the abrasion is typically suctioned off with a small vacuum. Microdermabrasion can reduce the appearance of sun damage, acne scars, dark spots, and other raised or flat marks. Sunken scars do not react to microdermabrasion with the same degree of success.

For those using microdermabrasion to treat acne, the treatments must be repeated periodically.

While the process may sound somewhat uncomfortable, technological advances and the skill of our board-certified dermatologists means that you are likely to have a painless experience that does not call for anesthetic. Afterward, you will 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. 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!
