Microdermabrasion is a popular skin resurfacing treatment that has been around for quite some time. This procedure is effective in anti-aging efforts because it corrects a number of aesthetic issues. It is a safe and convenient choice for both women and men who wish to achieve a smoother, more youthful glow.
While there are products for at-home use on your own, microdermabrasion is most effective when performed by a trained professional using quality clinical equipment. During this treatment, a special tool is used to slough off the outer layer of skin in order to reveal the healthier, rejuvenated skin beneath. Tiny particles are used to remove the layers of dead skin cells. At Pierre Skin Care Institute, we combine microdermabrasion and a chemical peel with our SilkPeel treatment for optimal results.
What are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion?
One major benefit of this treatment is that there is no downtime. In fact, microdermabrasion is often called a “lunchtime peel.” The intensity of treatments can be adjusted to meet each patient’s individual skin care needs and goals. In addition, our practitioner will advise you on the number of sessions that is recommended.
Microdermabrasion is an appropriate treatment for a broad array of issues, including fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, uneven skin texture and enlarged pores. In addition, the newly revealed layer of skin is better able to absorb facial products, making them more effective.
Additional Factors to Consider

You’ll be given instructions after your procedure which will likely include using a moisturizer with sunscreen and avoiding exposure to the sun. Otherwise, virtually no downtime is involved with this treatment.
