Microdermabrasion in Tucson, AZ
Get Healthy Skin With No Down Time
Removing the outer layer of skin promoting natural repair.
For patients seeking positive effects similar to a chemical peel, there is a treatment that can be administered quickly and allows patients to quickly return to home or work: microdermabrasion. Tucson women and men can benefit from a gentle buffing that provides an exfoliating effect, removing the outermost layer of skin and prompting the area to naturally repair itself.
Ironwood Dermatology offers an advanced form of microdermabrasion known as Dermalinfunsion®, which is a next-generation facial treatment that incorporates the infusion of medications and nutrients into the skin.
What Can Microdermabrasion Treat?
Since it removes dead skin cells and triggers production of beneficial skin elements, microdermabrasion can be used to address a range of cosmetic concerns, including fine lines, certain scars, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, blackheads and other acne symptoms, and more.
Many patients find that the treatment also gives them a healthy glow. This is because it can trigger the production of new collagen and elastin in the skin, which improve resiliency and a capacity for holding onto moisture.
Microdermabrasion also prepares skin to better receive beneficial topical serums, which can further improve the rejuvenating results.
What Does Dermalinfusion® Do?
Microdermabrasion with Dermalinfusion® has three components:
The first benefit, exfoliation, clears away the dead cells that make skin appear dull and dry.
Extraction opens clogged pores and removes what's inside, clearing away debris and freeing the pores for healthy, unimpeded function.
Finally, with the barrier of dead skin cells removed and pores unblocked, hydrating and revitalizing serums can be introduced.
Microdermabrasion can be used all over the body, including the face and neck, breasts and décolletage, arms and legs, and elsewhere. Most patients find that more than one session is necessary to achieve their desired results. Typically, four to six treatments are spaced apart by two to four weeks.
What to Expect After Microdermabrasion
Patients who enjoy a rejuvenating treatment will find that the treated skin will be red and sensitive following the procedure. Since the skin is extra sensitive, it should be kept out of the sun and other sources of ultraviolet radiation. In the days after a session, the skin will heal, gradually losing its redness.
The refreshed-looking results will also appear gradually, with skin looking brighter, smoother, and clearer as collagen returns to the area and hydration improves. Results can last for months at a time.
