Microdermabrasion and dermaplaning are two non-invasive methods for achieving a deep exfoliation of your skin.1 Microdermabrasion uses a diamond tipped wand combined with mild suction to remove the layer of dead cells that naturally accumulate on the surface of your skin. The same results are seen with dermaplane, which uses an aesthetic tool instead of the wand.* An advantage of the dermaplane is that it also removes the fine vellus facial hairs, which many women don’t like.*
- Non-invasive, no downtime treatments*
- Leaves skin healthier, smoother and softer1*
- Can be combined with any of our facials or done separately
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure which can treat fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, brown spots, acne scars and poor texture.1* Microdermabrasion uses diamond tipped wands combined with vacuum suction to exfoliate the epidermis of the skin, which is where dead skin cells gather. At Genesis MedSpa we have the ability to use either crystal or crystal-free microderm, depending upon patient preference. This exfoliation stimulates new collagen production. Microdermabrasion can be done on its own or combined with any of our peels or facials.
What should I expect after having Microdermabrasion?
After receiving a Microdermabrasion treatment, many clients immediately feel that their skin is softer, smoother and more radiant appearing.* Products go on more smoothly and can penetrate into the dermis (where they are most effective) more easily. Occasionally, clients will notice slight redness or dryness for about 24 hours. It is important to avoid sun exposure immediately after this treatment and to wear a high-quality sunscreen. Retinol, Retin-A or other exfoliating products should be avoided for 3-4 days before and after your Microdermabrasion treatment. Makeup application is completely safe immediately after the procedure. Genesis MedSpa recommends Glo Mineral Makeup.
Are there any risks involved with Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is virtually risk-free and is a powerful but gentle and non-invasive skin treatment.* As long as you follow post procedure instructions, you have nothing to worry about.
Dermaplane is a non-invasive exfoliation treatment of the face that uses an aesthetic tool to gently remove the outermost layer of skin, which is formed mostly of dead skin cells. Removing this layer leaves the skin soft and smooth and better able to absorb products and serums. This procedure can also remove many of the fine vellus facial hairs that women do not like on their faces. This no-downtime procedure can be done on its own or can be combined with any of our peels or facials.
Anyone with eczema, active acne or active rosacea should consider being treated with Dermaplane instead of with Microdermabrasion. In addition, if you have a history of broken capillaries on your face or neck, Dermaplane may be a better treatment choice for you. The skin care specialists at Genesis MedSpa can help determine which procedure is best for your skin.
