If you are seeking a way to improve the tone and texture of your skin and/or slow and reverse early signs of aging, microdermabrasion in Tinley Park may be the ideal solution. Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive approach to skin renewal that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation, enlarged pores, acne scars, and sun damage.

What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a dermatological procedure that gently exfoliates the top layer of the skin. This treatment is machine-assisted and involves the use of a special applicator to abrade the skin and suction away the dead skin cells.

While a single microdermabrasion treatment can provide noticeable effects, a series of treatments may be recommended to achieve more dramatic complexion rejuvenation. This treatment can be combined with additional skin care therapies to accelerate and enhance your results.

Ideal Candidates for Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion can be performed for all skin types and tones. You can be a good candidate for this skin treatment if you have superficial skin conditions. If you have deep wrinkles and acne scars, you may need to explore other skin rejuvenation options.

Your Consultation

The consultation process is an important step of your microdermabrasion treatment. During this essential appointment, our skin care specialist will review your medical history to gather any pertinent information about your allergies, past treatments and surgeries, and existing medical conditions.

Additionally, you will be asked about your skin concerns, and a physical examination of the proposed treatment sites will be performed. You will also be provided with post-treatment instructions for supporting a quick recovery and optimal rejuvenation.

The Procedure

Microdermabrasion treatments take about an hour and do not require the use of anesthesia. You will be seated in a reclined position for the duration of this skin rejuvenation treatment.

To begin, your skin is cleaned to remove any impurities on the surface. Then, the microdermabrasion applicator is systematically moved across the skin to sand the outermost layer of skin away. This exfoliation process clears the surface of dead, dull, and damaged skin cells.

After the microdermabrasion process is complete, your skin will be cleansed. A serum, moisturizer, and/or sunscreen will then be applied.

Microdermabrasion Aftercare

Microdermabrasion does not necessitate downtime. You can return to your normal routine and activities right away.

Your skin may appear pink and/or may feel tight for a short time after your procedure. Properly hydrating the skin with a gentle moisturizer is essential as the skin heals.

The treated area may be more sensitive to sunlight and/or certain skin care products after your procedure. Topical acne prevention products should not be applied to the treated skin for a minimum of 24 hours after microdermabrasion. Additionally, it is best to avoid sun exposure as much as possible and to diligently apply a quality, broad spectrum sunscreen for two to three weeks after your treatment.

Cost of Microdermabrasion

There are several factors that can influence the cost of your microdermabrasion treatment. The inclusion of additional treatments, serums, and skin care products to enhance your results can affect the overall price. Subsequent treatment sessions to build on initial improvements will also affect the total cost of rejuvenating your skin with microdermabrasion.
