If you’ve been looking for a simple and effective way to improve the tone, texture, and overall look of your skin without having to go under the knife, then our Monroe, NC, dermatologist, Dr. Awa Igbinadolor, is here to tell you more about a popular treatment known as microdermabrasion and how it could be the right cosmetic approach for healthier and younger-looking skin.

What is microdermabrasion?

This cosmetic treatment is a great option for patients of all ages and with all skin types to improve and refresh the appearance of their skin without the need for invasive procedures such as chemical peels that often require extensive downtime. By uses microcrystals, our Monroe skin doctor can buff away the outer and most damaged layers of the skin to reveal healthier skin underneath.

What issues can microdermabrasion address?

Unfortunately, our skin is exposed to some pretty toxic elements that can do more harm than good for the health and appearance of our skin. Microdermabrasion is a great way to reduce the impact these environmental elements have on our skin. Microdermabrasion can reduce and even eliminate:

  • Fine lines (e.g. crow’s feet; laugh lines)
  • Superficial scarring (e.g. acne scars; chickenpox scar)
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation

What are the benefits?

There are many wonderful advantages to getting microdermabrasion in Monroe:

It’s non-invasive: We know that most people want to get younger-looking skin but loathe the idea of having to undergo more invasive treatments in order to get the results they want. Microdermabrasion allows our patients to get the results they want without ever having to deal with anesthesia, needles, or other more aggressive measures.

Painless: They say “pain is beauty” but who says it has to be? Microdermabrasion is completely painless and causes minimal redness or swelling post-treatment.

Fast: A lot of cosmetic treatments require days of recovery, which many of our busy patients just can’t do. We know most people can’t take days off work because their skin needs time to heal. This is why microdermabrasion is a fantastic option. You can get the results you want without ever having to take time off from your life.
