Microdermabrasion is a very popular exfoliation procedure that simply removes the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells. Healthier, clearer, more youthful-looking skin is revealed after treatment. Dermabrasion treatments effectively treat superficial scars, uneven skin tone, sun damaged skin, acne, and acne scarring. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive, painless, and requires little or no downtime from work or social activities. Fine lines and age spots may be erased and acne scars and stretch marks may become less obvious.
Microdermabrasion treatments are gentle and progressive, rather than aggressive and fast. Between 2 to 6 treatments are required for the best results depending on your skin’s needs. Improvements will continue to progress through your course of treatment.
Medical dermabrasion differs from your neighborhood salon treatment. By working under the supervision of a CTMAX doctor, higher power setting may be used, giving you a more robust and effective treatment.
Why consider microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a great option for those who are sensitive to chemicals or make-up; those who cannot take off time for healing after a chemical peel or laser procedure; or for those with acne who have not responded well to other acne treatments.
