Microdermabrasion – Skin Resurfacing Treatment – Plano, TX*

Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Microdermabrasion, often called “microderm” for short, is a non-chemical, physical exfoliation technique. This noninvasive treatment aids in reducing fine lines, unwanted congestion, and pigment while stimulating collagen. Treatment intensity is tailored to each patient’s individual need and skin type. Plano, TX double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, provides his patients with the options of a full-length microdermabrasion with facial, as well as a mini microdermabrasion at the request of our on-the-go patients who are pressed for time but still want the benefits of advanced exfoliation. Typically, 5 – 8 treatments are necessary for best results and they are spaced anywhere from 7 – 10 days apart for most people. 

Best Candidates

The ideal candidates for microdermabrasion:

  • Any skin type and color
  • Have skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, aged skin, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, minor scars, and uneven skin tone and texture
  • Desire better-looking, more radiant skin
  • Do not want an invasive surgical procedure
  • Have realistic outcomes

What to Expect

The patient’s face will be thoroughly cleaned prior to the procedure. A stream of fine particles will be sprayed onto the patient’s face to essentially polish the skin through a special hand piece. In the process, dead skin cells and other debris will be suctioned away by the microderm system. Microdermabrasion also stimulates the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, which play a role in skin firmness. Treatment can take 30 – 60 minutes to complete.

Anticipated Results

There’s no downtime with microdermabrasion, but the skin will look pink and also feel dry and tight for about 1 day after treatment. Moisturizer should be applied to alleviate these side effects. There will be immediate results after microdermabrasion, where patients should experience smoother, brighter, and more even-toned skin. For full results, 5 – 12 treatments are recommended every 2 – 3 weeks.
