Is Microdermabrasion a Good Treatment for Wrinkles?

Home » Fine Lines & Wrinkles » Is Microdermabrasion a Good Treatment for Wrinkles?

As we grow older, our skin can begin to show our age. It can even make us look older than we are. While growing older is most certainly a privilege, wearing fine lines and wrinkles as a visible trophy is optional thanks to advances in wrinkle prevention.

Wrinkle Prevention and Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is an aesthetic treatment. It is used to stimulate the growth of fresh, healthy, vibrant skin by removing the outermost layer of the skin. It works in the upper dermis and stratus corneum, not in the deep dermis.

Think of microdermabrasion as a medical-grade exfoliant. Through carefully administered abrasion and suction, it offers a simple, speedy, and painless cosmetic treatment with minimal risk and no downtime. It can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as early sun damage and mild acne scarring. But it is limited and can only address mild skin issues.

Microdermabrasion will do little for deep wrinkles. These are better reduced in appearance with the use of technologies like Halo (a laser treatment) and Vivace (a microneedling treatment).

Fine lines and wrinkles that have not become static or deep can also be addressed with BOTOX® and dermal fillers, such as Juvederm.

What’s Best for You?

Well, that is the question! Your skin is as unique as you, which is why those one-size-fits-all over-the-counter pharmacy products have probably been a letdown. Pinpointing the right wrinkle prevention treatment (or combination of treatments) for you starts with creating your personal skin profile.

During your free in-person consultation with us, we will conduct a computerized 3D skin analysis. This is a $150 value that all new patients can receive for free. Why? Because customizing our treatment options to your unique needs and skin is our focus and passion. Your consultation and skin analysis create the strongest possible foundation from which we can customize a plan to achieve your desired results.

Are you ready to give your skin the TLC it deserves? Let us “upgrade” your “age trophy” by leaving people to wonder if you have amazing anti-aging genes.
