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.

If you are looking for a cosmetic dermatologist in Morristown, Mt. Arlington, or Bridgewater, NJ, who can provide you with the cosmetic skin procedures you need for a youthful appearance, then call Affiliated Dermatologists today at (973) 267-0300 to schedule a consultation at any of our three locations.

Spring is in the air and summer will soon be upon us. If you are looking to erase that dull winter skin, now might be the perfect time to consider microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive technique used to gently exfoliate the skin by suctioning and buffing the skin with fine crystals, deeply and thoroughly removing the upper layer of dead and damaged skin cells to reveal new, fresh skin. The suctioning stimulates collagen production and increases blood flow to the face. It is safe for all skin types and the procedure can be tailored to each individuals' skin care goals. Results are noted after just one treatment. Many patients, however, opt for a series of treatments to enhance the effects. Your complexion will appear brighter, smoother, and with a more even skin tone. Microdermabrasion can decrease fine lines and wrinkles and enhances the benefits of anti-aging products and bleaching creams, allowing them to penetrate the skin at a deeper level. Additionally, microdermabrasion can help lighten sun spots, decrease pigmentary changes, unplug pores, and treat mild acne scarring. There is little to no recovery time, making it the perfect "lunch hour" treatment. Full spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen is recommended along with sun avoidance after skin resurfacing is performed. Because microdermabrasion treats only the top layer of skin, healing time is quick and treatments can be spaced anywhere between 2 weeks and 2 months apart. So whether you are a teenager with acne, a bride with an upcoming wedding, or are simply looking for an overall healthy glow (and who isn't?), microdermabrasion may be the treatment for you.
