Microdermabrasion in Reading PA

Make room for smoother, softer, more vibrant skin

In general, the human body is a powerhouse—and your skin is no exception. Our bodies naturally and frequently go through the process of cell renewal (exfoliation), but, unfortunately, this slows with age the effects of the environment. This can lead to a build of dull, damaged, or dead skin that shows every line and spot, leaving you with aged, dull appearance.

Luckily, with a little extra help, you can renew and revitalize your skin. Micordermabrasion removes the superficial dead cells thickens the epidermis and increases the production of new skin cells, collagen, and elastin, giving your skin a healthy glow. Developed in Europe many years ago, microdermabrasion has become a popular skin treatment all over the world.

How microdermabrasion works

Aluminum oxide crystals are projected onto the skin in a safe and uniform manner to painlessly exfoliate layers of the epidermis. These crystals, along with dead skin cells, are vacuumed into a closed filter container and discarded. A control gauge allows for increased vacuum for a more aggressive exfoliation and decrease vacuum for a more gentle exfoliation.

Microdermabrasion leaves your skin smooth and clean with only mild erythema (redness). Blackheads are loosened, whiteheads become unsurfaced, hyperpigmentation lightens, acne scars lighten, and enlarged pores and fine wrinkles become less prominent. Additionally, microdermabrasion draws blood, containing oxygen and nutrients, to the skin’s surface to feed and repair cells.

Recommended number of microdermabrasion treatments

The process of microdermabrasion should be approached in a series of at least six treatments in order to get a lasting effect. The patient will be treated every week or every two weeks depending of the aggressiveness of the peel. A proper skin care program with microdermabrasion is imperative for long lasting improvement in the skin.
