Are you looking for a simple nonsurgical way to improve skin’s tone and texture?

If you want to give your skin a new glow for the New Year while smoothing away signs of aging and sun damage, then you’ve come to the right place. Our Morristown, NJ, dermatologists can help you get the skin rejuvenation treatment you’ve been looking for. If you’re looking for simple, non-invasive skin cosmetic procedures that can help improve your skin’s overall appearance without ever needing surgery then microdermabrasion may be right for you.

What is microdermabrasion?

This popular cosmetic treatment uses a crystal or diamond-tipped handheld device that is guided over the surface of the skin to remove the outermost layers of dead skin cells. As the outer layer of damaged skin is removed this stimulates the body’s natural healing response, which helps to repair the lost and damaged skin cells with healthy new ones.

Furthermore, this treatment can also stimulate the body’s production of collagen, which is responsible for keeping skin firm and supple. One session takes about 30 minutes to treat the entire face.

What does microdermabrasion treat?

While microdermabrasion can be a great option for many adults looking to refresh their appearance, this treatment option is most often used once someone starts to see those early signs of aging. Microdermabrasion is great for treating:

  • Pigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Clogged or enlarged pores
  • Dull skin
  • Melasma
  • Sun damage
  • Skin laxity
  • Poor or uneven skin texture
  • Acne or superficial scars

Is microdermabrasion safe?

Yes, this treatment is completely safe. Of course, this isn’t something that you can do on your own, and to err on the side of caution it’s best to turn to a skincare professional in Morristown, NJ, to give you the results you want. Microdermabrasion is a popular choice for many of our patients, sometimes winning out over other options such as laser skin treatment and chemical peels. Microdermabrasion offers similar results but can be cost-effective for our patients on a budget.

Since this treatment is non-invasive, anesthesia or numbing isn’t necessary with this treatment. There is also little to no downtime associated with microdermabrasion, which also makes it a great option for someone always on the go.
