Microdermabrasion Q & A

What is microdermabrasion?

During microdermabrasion at The Medical Dock, Dr. Ahmad uses microparticles or a diamond-tipped wand to sand off outer skin layers and stimulate new cell growth. When the affected area heals, newer younger-looking skin replaces aging skin. Microdermabrasion is noninvasive with no downtime and provides immediate, noticeable results.

 

What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?

At The Medical Dock, microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types and produces the following long-lasting anti-aging benefits.

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brightens dull complexions
  • Improves uneven skin tone or texture
  • Reduces melasma, age spots, and other dark spots
  • Shrinks large pores
  • Eliminates blackheads
  • Improves acne and diminishes acne scarring
  • Reduces the appearance of stretch marks
  • Smooths rough skin
  • Improves dry or oily skin

Microdermabrasion boosts collagen production to revitalize your skin and improve its overall appearance. The treatment helps you look years younger without the pain or recovery time associated with other cosmetic procedures.

What should I expect during microdermabrasion?

Prior to the procedure, you’ll schedule a free consultation with Dr. Ahmad at The Medical Dock to determine if microdermabrasion or another cosmetic treatment best matches your needs.

During treatment, Dr. Ahmad uses a hand-held device with an attached vacuum to exfoliate your skin with simultaneous suction. He might also use a diamond-tipped wand to enhance exfoliation for optimal results.

You might feel mild scratching, suction, or a vibrating sensation during the procedure. Each microdermabrasion treatment lasts about 30 minutes.

Are there any side effects?

After the procedure, you might experience some swelling, redness, or mild tenderness near the treated area. Dr. Ahmad may recommend moisturizers or other facial products to speed up healing and enhance your results.

How long will my results last?

The vibrant, youthful-looking skin you’ll experience after microdermabrasion is long-lasting, but you might require a series of treatments to achieve optimal results. Dr. Ahmad may recommend two microdermabrasion sessions each month initially, with monthly follow-up treatments to maximize results.

Depending on the severity of skin damage, he might suggest another cosmetic procedure in addition to microdermabrasion.

If tired-looking skin is ruining your confidence and quality of life, schedule a free aesthetics consultation to discuss microdermabrasion with Dr. Ahmad and The Medical Dock team by phone or online today.
