Plano, TX area dermatologists describe microdermabrasion treatment

Microdermabrasion treatment is a popular option considered by patients who want to rejuvenate their skin in a way that is much less invasive than other procedures such as more aggressive chemical peels or dermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is less invasive and can provide patients with sufficient results without extensive downtime and healing.

To learn about microdermabrasion, patients are encouraged to contact Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell of DSA Dermatology in the Plano, TX area to determine first if they are appropriate candidates. This is also a wonderful time to discuss how the procedure is done and what can be expected before, during, and after it.

Microdermabrasion is done using a special hand piece which sprays fine crystals onto the skin to gently exfoliate and remove it. This is done with much less aggression than dermabrasion and does not require any medication to numb the skin. Patients rest easy as the procedure is done within approximately thirty minutes for facial treatments.

After the procedure, patients may feel as though their skin is tight and dry for approximately 24 hours. Their skin may be pink in color but this is easily disguised using cosmetics if necessary. Patients will be given moisturizer to use on the skin to keep it hydrated and also protect it from any sun exposure, which should also be limited for a few days after the procedure to allow the newer skin to renew one’s appearance. There are no side effects to microdermabrasion making it completely safe and effective at rejuvenating the skin. Many patients speak with their dermatologist about regularly scheduling microdermabrasion appointments to keep the skin rejuvenated and also help in reducing problems such as poor texture and tone and acne.

Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell of DSA Dermatology offer microdermabrasion and many other cosmetic and medical treatments to new and current patients in their practice and encourage individuals to speak with them regarding the many ways they can enhance the appearance and health of their skin.
