If you’re looking for a way to refresh and rejuvenate your skin for a healthy looking glow, without invasive treatments or downtime, microdermabrasion at Living Well Institute for Skin and Laser in Beaverton is a good choice. By gently lifting impurities and removing dead, dry outer layers of skin, our microdermabrasion treatment can improve problems like mild blemishes, blackheads, enlarged pores and mild age spots. A series of treatments helps improve fine lines and uneven texture. Clients with busy schedules appreciate our microdermabrasion treatment because it only takes 30 minutes, is pain free, requires no downtime, and they can return to work immediately after their appointment.
The microderm procedure involves light abrasion using a diamond tip microdermabrasion wand to gently smooth surface skin cells. It is not painful and does not require the use of an anesthetic.
Microdermabrasion is safe and effective. Commonly thought of as a lunchtime procedure, it only takes about thirty minutes to complete. There is no recovery time and normal activities can be resumed immediately.
What to Expect After Microdermabrasion Treatment:
Repeated treatments are recommended for optimal results. Typically, between five and twelve treatments are performed, spaced two to three weeks apart. Chemical peels are sometimes combined with microdermabrasion to further enhance results.
Following treatment, your skin will appear pink and feel softer. Makeup and moisturizers may be applied immediately. Direct UV exposure should be avoided, and sunscreen should be worn for the first 24 hours following treatment.
