If you run your hands over your face, does your skin feel soft and smooth or like sandpaper? If rough, the surface layer of your skin may be clogged with damaged skin cells that can make your complexion very dull and uneven. At Willowbend Med Spa in Plano, TX, board-certified OB/GYN Dr. Deanah Jibril offers aesthetic services like noninvasive skin resurfacing with microdermabrasion. Effective and fast, microdermabrasion treatments remove the upper layer of dead and damaged skin so, your complexion is brighter and healthier. During your consultation, Dr. Jibril will develop a custom treatment plan just for you.
Microdermabrasion Ideal Candidates
Microdermabrasion can reduce the visibility of surface skin blemishes such as uneven texture, color, blotchy skin tone, fine lines, clogged pores, sun damage, and scars. It is appropriate for men and women of all skin tone and type that want healthier, clearer skin. These treatments are typically performed on the face; however, it can also be performed on your hands, neck, and chest. This service should not be performed on skin that has an open wound or if you have a chronic condition, like acne or rosacea.
Microdermabrasion Treatment Technique
Microdermabrasion treatments are done in our office after a thorough consultation to determine what services will lead to your best results. For the treatment, you will sit back in a comfortable chair as your skin is prepared and cleaned. A fine delivery of crystals to the epidermis will exfoliate and improve the appearance of your skin. The handpiece will pass along your skin as it both polishes and vacuums the dead skin and crystals. While the treatment may feel a little rough, it is not painful, so you should not need a numbing cream or local anesthesia. The microdermabrasion will be performed to the designated areas only. Once the session is over, your skin will be lightly cleansed to remove any leftover debris before a moisturizer with sunscreen, selected for your skin type, will be applied.
What to Expect with Microdermabrasion
Once you leave our office at Willowbend Med Spa, you can continue your day as planned. Please wear sunscreen or another form of sun protection since your skin will be sensitive. Your face should feel smoother and your tone will be more consistent. To extend the results of your treatment, Dr. Jibril recommends having microdermabrasion every 4 – 6 weeks. Most Willowbend Med Spa patients notice that after microdermabrasion, their skin care products (especially creams and lotions) absorb more easily into their skin for better results.
