What is a Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that deeply exfoliates and refines the surface of the skin, leaving it brighter, smoother and more youthful-looking. It is one of the most popular non-surgical skin resurfacing treatments because of its effectiveness and the overall simplicity of the service.
Suitable for all skin types, Microdermabrasion can help treat fine lines, uneven skin texture, and enlarged pores and helps stimulate blood flow to the face. This vitalizes elastin and collagen in the underlying layers of the skin, improving elasticity and texture.
Benefits of Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion treatments reduce or eliminate many textural and pigmentation irregularities resulting from acne, sun exposure, and aging. Unlike a chemical peel, Microdermabrasion is a more gentle treatment that gives a healthy glow and reveals the younger skin beneath damaged skin without the peeling process.
Other benefits of Microdermabrasion include:
- Smoother, younger-looking skin
- Fast procedure with little to no downtime
- Improved skin quality
- Reduction of sun damage appearance
- Improved collagen and elastin growth
These benefits allow your skincare products to absorb faster and more optimally, leading to longer-lasting results. Those who wear make-up have also said that makeup application is smoother after their Microdermabrasion treatment as well.
Who Should Get Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is best for adults who see signs of aging, comedonal (blackhead) or painful acne, or simply want to see younger-looking skin. And for those who have sun damage, wrinkles, acne scars, or skin tone and texture problems, Microdermabrasion can be an effective and painless solution.
Microdermabrasion helps treat the following conditions:
- Dry skin
- Fine lines
- Uneven pigmentation
- Clogged pores
- Minor scars
- Skin texture problems
What Can I Expect During My Microdermabrasion Treatment?
Sunflower Dermatology and Medical Day Spa is dedicated to providing a peaceful environment where clients can relax and enjoy the care they receive. Our aestheticians, who perform Microdermabrasion in Kansas City, use a diamond tip wand that gently removes the dead skin from the surface of our clientele’s face.
Many of our clients describe this as a soothing, slightly warm sensation, similar to a facial massage.
Post-treatment, our clients notice that their skin feels smoother and more luxurious. This result is evident even after the first treatment.
How Long Is A Microdermabrasion Facial?
The average time it takes per treatment is 30 to 60 minutes. Microdermabrasion treatments have little to no “downtime” unlike other procedures and regular activities can be resumed immediately.
How Often Do I Need To Get Microdermabrasion?
Although Sunflower Dermatology & Medical Day Spa offers individual treatments, we recommend that clients receive a series of 3 Microdermabrasion treatments in order to see the best results.
How Much Does Microdermabrasion Cost?
We charge $150 per Microdermabrasion treatment. You can save $75 when you purchase a series of three for $375.
Is Microdermabrasion Safe?
Yes, Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive and safe procedure. Although you can do a DIY Microdermabrasion treatment at home, the safest and most effective way to get this treatment is to have it done by a professional who understands hygiene codes and dermatology best practices.
