What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a skin restoration process utilizing a controlled vacuum and fine aluminum oxide crystals to gently clear away dead and sun damaged skin cells revealing softer, smoother and more vibrant looking skin. By repeating this treatment over the course of several weeks, the younger, softer skin moves up to the surface. The desired effect of significant texture and color improvements will continue with time. Microdermabrasion is the safest alternative to laser resurfacing and chemical peels with absolutely no downtime. A cleanser is first applied to the skin to remove excess oils for better application and penetration. The Ultrapeel microdermabrasion system then delivers fine, sanitary aluminum oxide crystals to the face that remove dead skin and impurities. Afterwards Pink silk is applied to the new skin, Pink silk is an anti-inflammatory formulation of caviar and red algae (astaxanthin). Finally we apply Dr. Sigari’s specialty formulated sun block ReyBlock to protect the skin.
What are the benefits?
Microdermabrasion has been medically proven for simple and painless treatments of many skin conditions. Microdermabrasion activates the collagen fibers in the skin through increased stimulation and circulation therefore enhancing skin appearance and texture. The thorough exfoliation improves and lightens hyperpigmentation (brown spots), helps rid skin of fine lines, improves the appearance of acne-scarred skin, aids with the treatment of acne, and improves the appearance of new “pink” stretch marks. After a revitalizing microdermabrasion treatment the rejuvenated skin is visibly more healthy and vibrant.
How often can treatments be performed?
Del Rey Aesthetics center specializes in custom tailoring our patients individual skin care needs. Although there are immediate benefits after one microdermabrasion treatment, for optimum results we recommend a series of six to twelve treatments.
How much time is needed for each treatment?
On average, the patient will spend twenty to forty five minutes in treatment.
How soon will the results be visible?
Results will be noticed immediately but because every individual’s skin is different the visible improvements will vary.
Is it painful?
Our patient’s comfort is the top priority at Del Rey Aesthetics Center. Generally speaking, Microdermabrasion is not painful and requires no topical anesthesia. Your skin may feel a little hot and pink for the first day.
