Kiss Acne Scars Goodbye with Microdermabrasion

If the remnants of teenage, or even adult acne, and affecting how you feel about your appearance, you may be the ideal candidate for microdermabrasion

Experienced dermatologist, Lisa Hitchins, MD, PA, and her aesthetician, Mari Benavente, offer in-office microdermabrasion treatments to eliminate acne scars that bother you most. Mari can also use microdermabrasion technology to rejuvenate your skin and help you look younger.

It’s never too late to address acne scars or other common skin flaws. Microdermabrasion treatments can quickly address shallow scars, wrinkles, and other issues that affect the health of your skin — all without the risks of surgery or the need for anesthesia.

The process of minimally invasive microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to effectively slough off the surface layer of your skin, eliminating dead, unhealthy skin cells. This exfoliation process reveals the fresher, younger-looking skin underneath, instantly transforming your appearance.

The microdermabrasion technology requires no surgical incisions or recovery time. Mari uses a handheld device to gently exfoliate surface skin in a procedure that lasts less than an hour.

Following a custom treatment plan made just for you, Mari can address acne scars and other flaws without invasive procedures. She also offers guidance to help you take better care of your skin and keep wrinkles and other flaws at bay.

Enjoying the benefits of microdermabrasion

By eliminating the outer layer of your skin, you can let the healthier skin beneath that has less wrinkles, lines, and acne scars shine through. You can even address old scars from chickenpox. Treatment also balances unevenly textured skin and can reduce the size of your pores.

If you have areas of discoloration, microdermabrasion can significantly reduce the appearance of age spots and brown spots. Skin appears brighter and feels much softer following your treatment.

Microdermabrasion sessions are safe and effective for all types of skin. To ensure you achieve maximum benefits of treatment, Mari may suggest more than one session. You can also schedule follow-up microdermabrasion treatments to keep your skin in top notch condition.

Skin care after microdermabrasion

Immediately following your microdermabrasion procedure, you can expect to learn all there is to know about keeping your skin moisturized and protected from the sun. Treatment can make your skin more sensitive until it fully heals. You’ll receive a high-quality moisturizing treatment to prevent dryness and skin flaking.

Mari can also recommend great moisturizing treatments for at-home use and suggest the right sunscreen to prevent new wrinkles and sun damage from affecting your healthier, smoother skin. It’s important that you apply sunscreen daily, even during the winter months, to reduce signs of premature aging, like wrinkles and sunspots.

There’s no need to schedule recovery time after microdermabrasion sessions. However, because your skin may appear red for a few days following treatment, you may want to postpone social engagements if the redness affects your self-confidence.

Get ready to say goodbye to acne scars and hello to healthier skin with microdermabrasion. Find out if microdermabrasion is right for you by scheduling a consultation at Dermatology Center of Northwest Houston online or by phone.
