What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a skin restoration process utilizing fine crystals and a controlled suction to gently slough away dead skin cells and photodamage, revealing softer, smoother, and more vibrant looking skin. The desired effect of significant texture and color improvements will continue after several treatments. Microdermabrasion is a safe alternative to laser resurfacing and chemical peels with absolutely no downtime.

How is this treatment performed?

A prepping toner is first applied to the skin to remove excess oils for better application and penetration. The machine then delivers fine, sanitary aluminum oxide crystals to the face that “sand blast” away dead skin and impurities. Cool compresses and a calming mask are then applied while the patient relaxes and receives a soothing scalp massage. A replenishing cream and a broad spectrum sunblock is applied to finish the procedure.

What are the benefits?

Microdermabrasion activates the collagen fibers in the skin through increased stimulation and circulation, thereby enhancing skin appearance and texture. The thorough exfoliation improves and lightens hyperpigmentation (brown spots), helps rid skin of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the appearance of acne scarred skin, aids with the treatment of acne, and improves the appearance of new “pink” stretch marks. After a revitalizing microdermabrasion treatment, the rejuvenated skin is visibly more healthy and vibrant.

How often can treatments be performed?

Virginia Surgical Arts specializes in catering to our patient’s individual skincare needs. Although there are immediate benefits after one microdermabrasion treatment, optimal results are seen with a series of five microdermabrasion treatments at our Virginia Beach location.

How much time is needed for each treatment?

On average, the appointment is made for one hour with the actual procedure lasting approximately 45 minutes.

How soon will the results be visible?

Results will be noticed immediately; however, because every individual’s skin is different, the visible improvements will vary.

Is it painful?

Our patient’s comfort is the top priority at Virginia Surgical Arts.  Microdermabrasion is not painful and requires no topical anesthesia. After treatment, your skin may have a tight, warm sensation which subsides rather quickly.

Am I a good candidate?

Microdermabrasion is safe and effective for all skin types and for anyone interested in improving the appearance of:

  • Scarring, including acne scars
  • Mild to moderate acne
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tones and pigmentation problems
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Dull, lifeless skin

Who should NOT have Microdermabrasion?

You should not have a microdermabrasion treatment on the affected area if any of the following are present/occurring:

  • Undiagnosed lesions
  • Recent herpes outbreaks
  • Warts
  • Active, weeping acne
  • Active Rosacea
  • Unstable diabetes
  • Auto-immune system disorders
  • You are using Retin A
  • Have had recent, intense sun exposure, laser, waxing, or chemical peels in the treated area

With microdermabrasion, there is no preconditioning, no anesthesia, no chemicals, no “downtime,” and it can be performed on all skin types. This noninvasive procedure, performed by a licensed aesthetician, will improve your overall appearance with no disruption in your daily activities.
